Great class! Fun learning! My kids and I now view all movies we see differently from all that we learned. A lot of what is learned is also applicable to literature classes.
We used this as a high school homeschool elective.
The students really learned a lot. They are able to understand, analyze and appreciate the details of filmmaking ,movie genres and character development. This course is easy to adapt to your personal scheduling needs.
This film studies program was not only great fun, but very insightful. It was awesome to watch the different genres and think about them in a different way from just sitting down to watch a movie like usual. The paperwork wasn’t bad at all, and when you knew the questions before the movie, you actually found yourself looking for them throughout the movie, and getting really excited when you recognized something! You found that you really appreciated a movie more after seeing the details that were put into it. This would be an educational and fun addition to your school curriculum!
We used this curriculum for a high school elective, but it was also a social activity, as the study questions bloomed into some interesting and enlightening discussions for the teens, as well as their parents. The materials are clear and well-organized and very detailed, and will assist your child in looking deeper into movie genres and really thinking about what they're seeing, in addition to being entertained. Can be used in small groups or with your own family. Highly recommended.
