Workload is heavy, as you have to do a 5 minutes film.
It really depends on you and your groupmate familiarity to apps for film score and editing.

Other than that, two quizzes re almost straight forward and not difficult, can even skip a lesson or two
Film paper is not a hard thing to do.
Sumie makes the lesson interesting, showing film clips, discussion etc.

Celina is a good tutor.

This course is not a difficult course for moviegoers but quite a challenge for university beginners. As long as you revise and pay effort onto the assignments this course will pay you back and you can learn a lot about movies.

Scene Analysis (5%) 5/5
Film Analysis (15%) 18/20
Quiz 1 (15%) 8/15
Quiz 2 (15%) 14/15
Screenplay (10%) 9/10
Video (15%) 80/100
Peer Review (10%) 9/10
Participation (10%) 9/10

Go for this course if you love movies, and you can make one.

I have been extremely lucky to have Ken as my tutor!!!! He's SUPER COOL and super friendly, and super nice! So sad he's just a visiting fellow and no longer teachers this course :(

First quiz: scene analysis of a short film + ppt

Second quiz: scene analysis on Forrest Gump + ppt

Assignment: write a movie analysis on either Forrest Gump or Annie Hall.

(movies depend on tutor)

We also watched Kill Bill during the last few lessons.

We had to make a short film, and at the end of the semester, the best short films are shown at a "film festival" which is super cool! popcorns are served too.

The only thing I didnt like was the long reflection paper for the video you made. Cuz for me, there isn't much to reflect, but need to write 800 words.

But seriously! You'll learn A LOT about film and you'll appreciate films more after taking this course! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!!!!!

Sumie is a friendly tutor, she replies emails real quick and will answer any question you ask.

The 2 quizzes are important as they count 30% to your final grade. Her quizzes are not difficult and straight forward. It is easy to get high marks if you have studied her powerpoint slides.

The group project is a bit tricky, you should make sure that you don't team with free riders. Otherwise you will suffer from super heavy workload. Most people in my class got decent marks for their video, basically you just need to show her your effort in the project.

Film analysis paper is the final assignment. It is important to mention the terms and concept learnt in classes and apply them to the movie you chose. The marks are generally high as most of us got 70+.

而且有齊曬guidelines跟住做,唔明問佢都會好快覆email.
2個quiz 都好straight forward

總括黎講想拉gpa可以揀呢科

輕鬆拎靚grade!

Quiz X 2
Essay X 2
Group video X 1
Reflection X 1

Hannah既quizzes出得好直接,只要溫熟slides,上堂參與下discussions,基本上7成幾無問題。

Essay兩篇,一篇短既描寫一個shot,一篇長既寫一個為時3-4分鐘既scene。事前Hannah有比guideline,唔太難。

佔分最重既係Group video,自己揀題材,剪接方面用iMovie就可以。要做好screenplay,條片只需稍稍應用到堂上提過既editting skills就可,只要清楚表達到信息就可以。

最後,reflection只要講下拍group video既困難同體會就得,輕鬆簡單。

不過,呢科要好grade,係絕對要付出多d時間,個group video最好week 2就開始同groupmate傾,條片要拍得好,真係需要付出幾多時間:)

This is actually quite an interesting course and Ian is a very enthusiastic tutor. For the course, you have to buy a book but Ian's notes are very detailed that you don't even have to read the book at all. In every tutorial, Ian gave us a lot of time for discussions and his lectures are not boring too.

However, the workload of this work is very heavy and quite challenging.
15% Quiz 1 (10/15)
15% Quiz 2 (14.5/15)
5% Individual Image Analysis (4/5)
20% Individual Scene Analysis (15/20)
15% Group short film (5min) (70/100)
10% Group screenplay for your short film (7/10)
10% Personal reflection on your group project (8/10)

Ian is quite a strict tutor and he expects a lot. The group project is quite time-consuming and it is quite challenging for students who don't have much experience on video editing. But if you are interesting in watching movie, this is quite a good course since there are 2 movie watching activities. You can also learn a lot from Ian.

呢科幾有趣
比心機讀的話,英文唔勁都有好grade

Tiffany人好好
講assignment既時候會比份sample你
你可以跟佢sample個structure做
交assignment 前可以send draft比佢改
改完又可以再send比佢check下有冇off topic
好有心 , 超好人

Assignment 唔難做 , apply返上堂學既野就ok
係條片要比多d時間做 , 要自己諗故事 , 寫screenplay, 自己拍自己剪
唔識剪片唔洗驚 ,因為佢會mark低邊個識剪片 ,
所以到時分組每組都會有人識
同埋比分幾鬆手

Quiz有溫就得

總括而言 ,
如果唔想揀其他英文科 , 呢科都幾好 ,
讀呢科的話 ,一定要揀Tiffany!!!!

(1) Participation (10%)
(2) Quiz x 2 (30%)
(3) Image Analysis Paper (5%)
(4) Scene Analysis Paper (20%)
(5) Group Project (35%) : Video (15%), Screenplay (10%), Reflection Paper (10%)

雖然Ian份人好nice,每次落堂之後都會有round-up email,講番一次上堂教過既野,但係不得不說佢比grade真係好strict。
先講assignment,要係ian手中拎高分絕對唔容易。你唔單止要將堂上學到既野apply落去,仲要運用自己既想像力,寫出一d會impress到佢既point。例如Image同Scene Analysis Paper咁,你要好留意每個detail (可能係一樣唔起眼既prop),然後再將佢link番去套戲既內容或者想表達既意思。如果寫到好特別既point,咁先會比較高分。

而quiz方面,2個quizzes相比起其他班黎講算難。佢會分開2 parts,一part係睇片答問題,另一part就係考番lecture教既野。雖然溫得好熟,但係答唔到佢想要既野都係唔會高分。

最後project方面,呢part需要花好多時間,因為首先你要跟住佢比你個theme去構思一個story同打好screenplay,之後再跟住screenplay去拍一條大約5分鐘既片。拍完之後就要cut片同配音,所以剩係條片都用左幾個禮拜既時間先做得哂。

雖然成個course比左好多心機,拎到8成幾既分,但係最後都係得B+,有d失望。Ian堂係幾生動有趣,但如果你揀左Ian既就比多幾倍努力啦!

係唔好彩之下揀左Ian,好欣賞Ian對cinema呢一科既教學非常有熱誠,notes入面既野已經係我地要睇既reading入面既重點,所以係唔使點睇reading

之不過,可能佢要求十分高,對於我呢個無咩經驗既人讀得好吃力...首先,佢出既quiz係好難,人地tutor就mc同short q再加一條long q,我地就全部long q,考你發揮,佢滿唔滿意...最慘係,佢竟然覺得佢出得好易,第二個quiz要更難,結果我地成班既average跌到合格邊緣

第二,係paper俾分好緊,佢好誠實話俾我地知,佢改親既最高得b

不過條片可能見我地係新手,所以就個分幾正常既

所以如果想向高難度挑戰,可以試下Ian,佢幾friendly架,教書幾生動,Good luck

哩個IAN係正宗KILLER
已經比其他班多好多野做
要狂寫JOURNALS不在話下,差唔多每堂都要寫
仲要D QUIZZES好鬼難,又多SHORT QS
上堂DISCUSSION CHUR死人
最過份係比分緊到嘔
竟然夠膽全班PAPER嘅MEAN比B-
佢讚我地條片好突出
點知個分同其他差嘅組一樣
真係O咀
總之揀呀豬呀狗都唔好揀IAN

Y-Dang 係必reg tutor, 好nice, helpful!
有3個quizzes, 唔算難, 除左問lecture內容亦會問上堂睇過既戲, 每次都係quiz前一日/前幾個鐘先溫.
有篇scene analysis paper, 交之前會有堂係workshop for你交draft(都會計分), 俾分幾鬆.
group project係拍video, 會random分組, 對冇拍片知識既人來講會係幾大workload, 根據佢俾既concept word要拍一段5分鐘既片, 同埋要交一份劇本, 最後仲要交reflection paper. 不過tutor好好, 會經常俾時間我地discuss, 俾comments我地, 亦會推介係用咩software剪片好, 冇器材的話更加可以問佢借! 未交之前已經講會俾a range全班.
y-dang幾睇participation, 最好答下問題, 每堂佢都會自己take attendance.
上堂氣氛幾好, 幾輕鬆, 會早落堂, 又試過玩問答遊戲. 最後一堂佢會買蛋糕請大家食.

3個quiz唔難 但係唔溫書會唔識因為有啲要睇textbk上堂無講
呢個tutor好怪
份individual report勁嚴全班得三個a range仲有啲攞c
跟住怕我地爛grade就全班個video pj都A range
有一組真係故事又差拍得又差都有A
真心覺得對其他認真做既組好唔fair
跟住自己心情差多野煩就發洩係我地到仲話自己唔evil
跟住有啲task又話好casual結果就比爛分人
總之唔recommend佢啦

十分認同呢科跟邊個tutor好重要
可能因為simon都好後生,上堂鐘意輕鬆,又知道我地睇戲既taste
我地睇inception, watchmen(呢個係全班投票話睇)同submarine(呢個係教完書睇lol)
我地呢班得1次quiz, 好簡單既fill in the blanks, 不過無派返唔知成績
scene analysis paper simon用左好多時間講,唔難
每堂一條journal question, apply返學過既野就ok
group video simon都花左好多時間同我地傾

不過無論邊個tutor,最緊要係要對電影拍攝有興趣,比心機既好grade無難度
利申 我中學有相關經驗 所以感覺更易上手

呢科完全係睇tutor..
Ian係一個好strict既tutor..
尤其係俾分,份scene paper通常係B range..even c
而且堂堂都discussion..寫Journal!!
最火滾既係quiz..人地係條條MC..我地就條條SQ , EVEN LQ..
拍片壓力都大,好煩,但佢組組都話well done, wonderful..俾分都ok..但對final grade冇半點幫助

Anderson真係一個好好人同教得好既AR SIR
佢係外國人,好幽默,上佢堂氣氛真係幾好
佢教野好清晰,有時會問問題,我有時都有答
每1-2堂要寫1次JOURNAL,不過好簡單,自己買本簿仔每次寫1-2頁,比少少心機就OK
有3個小QUIZ,出得幾易,有睇書就得
最吃力係拍片!..又要寫劇本又要拍,又要剪片..真係幾CHUR果排
佢係抽籤分組,題目都係佢ASSIGN,好公平
最後拍到表達到主題,正正常常,剪片麻麻,都A-
我見有組真係好好,可能有A+
拍完寫篇PERSONAL REFLECTION PAPER,好簡單,講下自己有咩感受,拍片有咩困難就得
另外有份SCENE ANALYSIS幾重要,佢會UPLOAD幾條片,你揀一個黎做,深入D分析,用多D TERMS就得
以上功課全部都計GRAMMAR,始終係英文科
總括來說呢科幾有趣,因為上堂可以睇戲,共睇4齣,REALLY ENJOY~
WORKLOAD除左拍片同SCENE ANALYSIS較重外,其他都好輕鬆
學到好多野,以後睇戲都有SENSE知道D SHOT,CAMERA MOVEMENT有咩意義,好好
