Jelinek, Milena
Script Analysis

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

I regret not having written a review earlier, since I would like to help keep as many people as possible from taking this class.
Fortunately some of my peers have done an excellent job in reviewing what surely is the worst class in the film department and possibly in the entire undergrad directory.
The irony: this highly unstructured class is supposedly about story structure.
Keep away from this course at all cost.
Sadly for film majors, this is required and you cannot escape Jelinek's arrogant and empty lectures. Hang in there, and do not expect to learn the basics of screenwriting here.

Workload:

Do not let the 2 paper workload fool you: it will take a lot of work for you to figure out what is expected from you, and when you do you will get a B - if you're lucky
