This was a fun and chill mod. For a level 2, I spent it watching movies so yes it was enjoyable. I didn’t really dig movies before the module so I took it to be convinced that movies were worth watching. I’m convinced now. The module covers the basics of film – cinematography, camera angle, lighting, sound, etc before going to the more academic side of things which is different approaches to film such as the Auteur Theory and Spectatorship. I personally enjoyed learning how to break film down into these basic components and it was overall pretty interesting.
For a level 2 module, it is very chill. One midterm in class test, barely any readings except for Multimedia Conglomeration and Spectatorship (week 10/11), one tutorial facilitation where you come up with a short proposal and write a report about the facilitation when you’re done with it, and one finals. Pretty much that’s it. You watch movies every Monday so I don’t think it’s a very tiring workload if you get to watch movies.Tutorials? Just participate in discussions, it ain’t that hard. Class part is 20%, tutorial facilitation is 20%, midterms and final essay worth 30% each.
One midterm class test and no finals Woohoo!
Rating on Esther’s scale, is it worth to do this module:
Yes very much indeed, film is that aspect not many people actually study so why not take it – 8/10
