Special Studies in Film and Television: Media Theory or Ghosts in the Machine
Fall 2021 - This review is actually for FTV 106C. This class consisted of lecture participation grade (attending the zoom), lecture discussion grade (written answers to questions), paper grade, rough draft grade, and a take home final. Essentially every class followed this format: ~1 hour of lecture, a 50 min break, ~1 to discuss the required film viewings. Prof Ravetto was very accommodating and listened to our needs. Overall this class was interesting and not too much work. The paper was only like 5 pages and my TA helped us with it a lot over the course of the quarter. The take home final was 1 short answer and 1 essay and we were given like 5 days to work on it. GET ALEXX as your TA!!!! They were the most considerate and helpful TA I've ever had. They made me look forward to class/discussion every week.
