they were all fun i learned alot in this class
Projects
Professor Miller has a knack in bringing the text alive for this subject. He supplemented the text with powerpoints, videos on a variety of art, or videos on the artist themselves. There was a lot of information about art that I had no idea existed. We went from primitive to modern day and I had no problem keeping up and learning alot about the subject. He even brought the artistic side of me I never knew I had. The art projects was a real challenge and I love it. Thank you Professor!

14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Possibly find ways for the class to participate, or possibly even have more art assignments.
More projects would be nice
More art projects that tied into the chapters would have been nice. It woke up my artistic nature I didn't know I had in me!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked the freedom that we had in the class. Of course that freedom can act as a double edged sword in a away that without having discipline, you could become lazy. But it felt good to have some space and time when working on our projects.
mahalo
I liked knowing that my film is coming along. I came into the class with many fears. Little by little, I am learning to use the software. It was very helpful to have the help of the lab monitor to assist me. Jackie Johns is an excellent helper to the filmmaking process!
I learned a lot from Mr. Miller this year and appreciate his knowledge Video movies and would recommend him to anyone of my friends
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I think that this class is very difficult to take when there is only one class meeting every week. Witht he amount of work that has to be done in this class, I think that there should atleast be 2 meetings each week and not one. Also I think that there should really be a teacher's aide. It would of helped a lot if there was extra hands that is specifically there to help for 209, and not just the lab monitor because they have other work to do.
mahalo
I just think that 5 hours is a bit too much, haha especially on fridays.

Thank you Miller for teaching me this semester.
MAHALO NUI LOA E HUI HOU
There is no doubt that the instructor has had a lot of practical experience creating films. Mahalo to Alu Like for the tuition waiver that allowed me to take the course. I would never have been able to afford it without the tuition waiver. I would have missed an opportunity to learn a new skill had it not been for Alu Like's direct support to the Hawaiian students.

I really enjoyed making videos and editing them in Final Cut Pro. Also learning about famous direcors and films in history.
The class helped me learn how to use final cut pro and learn different film techniques.
It was fun to make movies with good film equipment.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
-- snipped --
My only suggestion is if our final could be done in groups, because it was really hard for me to do an entire film on my own, at home, where I can never focus on filming....
Maybe a group project.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked the steps system for organizing the movie making. Premise, treatment, script, script breakdown, rough cut, final cut. The steps all led into the next step and made it easy to follow thru and get deeper into the movie making process. The treatment was awesome because I kept going back to it for the whole process.
I like how we got to choose what types of movies we wanted to do. Also, the time given to us was important because for such a big project, there has to be enough time to edit and prepare the video.
i enjoyed the short film assignment
hhhmmm...film making isn't really my thing...but i learned a bunch...showing up to class was a must...a video takes longer to make then anyone thinks... i like the fact that there was a lot of equipment that we could use!
Loved everything. Just wish I had more time... But that is life
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
Perhaps provide a link to the final cut manual. Perhaps use a software that would work on both Mac and pc such as adobe cs5 premier pro. If I could have worked on my movie at home I would have learned more. I could not afford to buy both the software and a Macintosh computer. The prerequisite classes all used adobe cs4 software that was compatible with both Mac and pc. The same file could move between Mac and pc. Apparently I could have exported my final cut file to XML then import into premier pro. Then I could have exported my premier pro file to XML and import into final cut. But I would have had to spend a lot of time cleaning up the stuff that got lost every time I did the conversion.
Not really, however, unless you have shot your movie, there isn't much to do in class. Once you shoot your movie, you have film to edit, but if you didn't yet, then most of the time is wasted doing nothing.
Danny Miller was late to class a few times. However, the days he was late was on work days, so it didn't matter as much as being late to some of the earlier classes.
idk...
More high quality equipment
15. Other comments:
Danny and the lab assistants were very willing to provide individual attention to help me learn to use the final cut software. I was happy that the lab was open for many hours on the weekends.
Film isn't my forte, but Danny made it simpler to do and more interesting by letting us find our own subject to shoot a film on.
he showed up late for almost every class...i mean it kinda sets the tone of the class...he should lead by example. the monday after spring break...he was an hour late...he said he was at a doctor's appointment..and that it took longer then he expected...uuummm?!?! why didn't he schedule that over spring break? he had the entire week to go to the doctor!!!
Thank you!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
greatly enjoyed this class and seeing the films come to life.
I enjoyed doing the projects and work but, I would have liked to have worked with the program Final Cut Pro more but still it was a good class.
getting to use final cut pro
I liked this course becuase it focused o one program (final cut pro) rather than 5 programs. Assignments were useful to understand different and varying film styles, camera movements, and different forms of editing.
The freedom allowed to create one's own project was greatly effective, and appreciated. Having Danny willing, and able, to coach and assist all the students in the class, as he rather rotatingly did, was a rare and helpful plus.
I liked that I was able to take control of my own movie and decide everything myself, as if I were the Director.
Knowledge from a true professional with great deal of experience.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I enjoyed it and might take the continuation of post production.
Do more example work before starting final projects--

Perhaps to put less emphasis on the quality of the camera footage and more emphasis on learning Final Cut Pro.

Daniel Miller is a great teacher. I believe he is newer, and is working out the kinks in his teaching procedures. Overall, he did an excellent job. I loved that we were independent. We were allowed to choose our own topic. We were shown the tools we needed to use immediately. I enjoyed the freedom and the flexibility on the time frame. I would like to make a request to HCC, to please provide the DMA program with Lavaliers. These were an essentail part of our filming process, and we were often hindered by the lack of there availblity. The DMA room currently has one. Mahalo.
I have been very happy to have had the great fortune to be in this program. Many mahalos are due to Regina & Jackie!

Enjoyed the class and Danny's insights. Will take other courses from him.
