  1. Filmmaking From the First Directors Review by Spauldorf
    Pros: Systematic, logical, well laid out class
    Cons: some redundancy, not a gifted speaker.

    Grades Used: 9

    We are only on lesson 2 of this class and we like how it is laid out. The lessons have been interesting and we have already learned much. The assignments thus far are perfect and challenging. The only “negatives” (which are very, very minor in my mind) are that the speaker seems to get lost while speaking landfills the time with a lot of “ums” and such.. no big deal. The other is that you have to watch long segments of old films which are great, but then you have to watch them again while he narrates the stuff you are supposed to look for. This redundancy is a bit time consuming and it would be nice to just watch it once with him talking either before, or after about what we are to watch for instead of watching it twice. But again, not a criticism, just a minor issue. So far we have enjoyed it.
