I came into this class hoping to gain more insight into media production and critique, but I don't think I learned as much as I thought I would. I feel like the course was bit too discussion-dependent and that becomes a limitation because you don't learn much from conversations between beginners when it takes up at least half of every class. I was hoping to get my hands on professional camera equipment and editing software but that only happened to a very minimal extent. Most of the class was discussions and papers.

This course is very based on discussions - both during class and weekly posts on Teams in response to the screenings. We watched a lot of anime, so if you are interested in that, this is a good class for you, but as someone who does not watch anime, it got a little old. The evening screenings don't usually take up the full 3 hours - we usually finished up around 9/9:30. Prof. Stein also provides access to the screening materials, so if you cannot make the screening, you can watch the film/episode on your own. Overall it's an easy class with a couple of papers and two big projects. She grades pretty fairly but harder than other 100 level courses I've taken.

I have had a great time in this class. It is mostly a discussion based class where you watch a documentary and talk about it in class. The discussions were insightful and the documentaries that we watched were interesting.
