Winter 2018 - I enjoyed this class, but it was a ton of work. If you really want to be a director, definitely take this class. You can't miss any classes though otherwise it is super detrimental to your grade, and I know it's tough given that this course requires so many hours. I would take this class only with one other GE and no other extra-curricular things going on. I would also try to get to know more people in the class so that they might help you in your assignments. Pretty much each week there's a new scene you have to develop given a specific prompt. Focus on dramatic tension, so that the scene remains stimulating because that's what Brian wants. Be prepared for a lot of feedback from your classmates, and to make your life exist only for directing for the ten weeks that you take this course. Seriously, if you have other stuff going on, you might need to wait until that stuff gets set aside before taking this course. Be forewarned:)
Winter 2020 - I took this class with M.K. Haley, but for some reason it was listed under Kite. Highly recommend! It sucked a little to be 3 hours long 3:30-6:20, peak nap time, but I found the content to be super engaging, especially given my interest in theme parks. I did not know there was a whole industry surrounding themed entertainment but now I know so much about it. M.K. knows so much about so many things and you really learn a lot in this course.
