Knowledgable in the subject.
everything
His demeanor makes it easy to approach him with questions, and his is always available to help and give suggestions.
Very informative and easy to consult with.
The editing exercises are the most helpful, because they force you to apply what you learn in class.
His knowledge.
He is highly experienced and is able to teach the subject with great humor.
His experience.
Helpful, gets points across hilariously! (therefore memorable)
He is very funny and his classes are never boring. he also is very understanding and helpful when asking for help
He's very accommodating and allows us creative freedom without being too lax.

15. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The projects we were given may not have been the funnest things to edit, but they definitely challenged all of us to think more creatively about how we edit.
The creative freedom.
The projects were fun and engaging.
humor
Editing professionally captured footage
The most lax student-lecturer interaction makes communication easy.
The workload was very manageable, while at the same time allowing us to practice everything we were required to learn for the course.
He's funny and laidback, that makes the class feel more comfortable while learning.
Feedback.
Good breakdown of assigments and the lectures were entertaining too.
Hands on demonstrations.
The projects were fun!
Everything.
The ability and room to make mistakes, and Wang's openess to help and not discourage.
16. Other comments:
I do wish we had gone over how to burn DVDs. I had been looking forward to that lesson. Although we may be progressing towards a DVD-less world, us students are still forced to burn DVDs every so often. And Encore is about as intuitive as a drunk monkey.
The class would have been better if it was done in a lab, with a computer for each person, instead of the lecture-type of class we have now.
I think the Course would benefit from being more hands on. It is hard to pay attention and keep focus while watching someone edit. If everyone were in front of computers and doing the same thing at the same time I believe it would greatly benefit the class.
n/a
This course needs to be available sooner.
Such a funny and understanding man... A great teacher who cares about his students.

13. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
The class time he gave us to screen our edited piece was good. It allowed us to get feedback on our project from our peers as well as him.
He teaches in a way that makes the content interesting with lots of visuals and talking story to keep our squirrel-sized attention spans focused.
He uses humour to convey his lessons.
What I found most valuable and helpful about Professor Wang is he showed us how to do certain things in Adobe Premiere Pro. He would encourage his students to come up to the front of the class and do the things he tried to do with Premiere Pro so that we could learn them.
George is extremely knowledgeable about Editing. He made learning what I thought would be a daunting subject fun and easy to understand. He is also very easy to talk to and has a very compassionate nature towards his students.
Showing his students first hand how to do things and what techniques to use while editing in Adobe Premiere.
Color corection and basic sound editing was very helpful.
It was valuable that he knew what we should know in regards to editing, and took the time to get his points across in a variety of ways.
Made us do exercises in class.
He tries to make class interesting by being funny and easy to talk to. He always gives great advice to improve.
George can communicate to his students on their individual level. He breaks down the art and science of editing in a way that anyone with a different focus can succeed with.
His knowledge and experience in editing and in the field

15. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I like the first project which allowed us to be creative and have fun with the clip we were given.
Editing techniques were very interesting and useful, I also wasn't expecting to learn about some audio and color correction which helped me.
I enjoyed the ability to email/upload assignments online.
The aspects of the course that I liked the best were the projects because those were the chances for us to be creative and make the projects our own. I also liked the critique sheets that we had to fill out the days the class presented their projects individually. It was nice to participate and give our opinions on other people's work. Giving opinions on other people's work is what Professor Wang asked for after we saw the work of our classmates. It was nice to have an opinion verbally.
I enjoyed our editing projects. It was a great way to use the skills we were learning in class and be creative at the same time.
The projects are simple, but if you really wanted to, you could get really creative.
I like how Prodessor Wang explained the reason for using certain editing techniques.
I liked how the projects were spaced out with just the right amount of time in between, and how each project required the use of skills/techniques that are taught during that time.
Editing Projects. Made me work my own creative method.
No final exam.
George knows how to communicate with his students and makes the process of editing enjoyable.
Learning color correction and grading, not just basic editing.
16. Other comments:
:D I try to take his classes whenever possible
This class was fun and George did a good job at being understanding and lenient.
When I look at this course as a whole, I will say I enjoyed it. I did like doing the projects because it was a chance for me to be creative and make my work more than average. The professor I will say that I have had him for at least two classes before this semester and he teaches in a unique style which I feel like makes his students enjoy his classes. This is my third class at least with him and I think he is a good professor in the ACM program. It was nice to see ACM students in this class that I have known before along with making new friends as well. Using Premiere Pro before has helped me out with this class and tutorials as well. This class was a great experience for me and I am so glad I signed up for it.
Great job George! I would highly recommend this class!
This class made me become a better editor!
Would recomend this class to anyone interested in improving their pieces.
NA
Wish it had live assignments instead of lecture forms.
Have a great winter break George! See you next spring! Sorry for not doing any title/graphic stuff for the last two projects. I'm terrible at time management, but definitely improved from 310 (where all my projects were late).

16. Other comments:
it would be nice to have material that isnt so boring to edit.
I would find it more helpful if every student could follow you with the same footage that you have on your computer when you teach. I found it hard to follow you because of that. And if you took the time to go around and see each student demonstrate how to do whatever is taught, all the students will be forced to learn how to do it and they won't have the embarrassment of having to do it in front of everybody.

13. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
His knowledge about the subject, programs and the industry.
I find it helpful that he's willing to have his office hours open so people can come in and get help on their projects or just the class in general. He gets the students to do exercises in his class related to editing software so they learn it better. It's nice that he puts in the effort to make ACM 374 fun for the students in his class.
He is easy to approach and makes class fun. He is knowledgable about the content and willing to help the students.
His experience
He knows what he's talking about.
Learned more about Audition. It was super helpful!!
Wants to help students understand course material as much as possible.
Very knowledgeable about subject
he was very knowledgeable and helped when we asked for it

15. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Recording the sounds and ADR and editing it..
I liked doing the projects that were due for our class especially the third one where we could use whatever music we wanted from anywhere. Despite the fact I would get a headache listening to George talk about the editing software, it was nice to learn how to use it. I liked how he tries to entertain the class to get us to focus on the material. George is a unique professor I must say.
I liked the hands on approach and learning the history.
Sound
It was a light class load but you learn too.
Producing Foley and ADR audio.
Doing ADR and Foley in class.
creating the sound for the project
16. Other comments:
This would have been way more effective in learning if we were provided a computer lab with the programs.
This class I will say was very challenging because editing software isn't really my thing. I just played around with the software and tried to remember some of the things George taught us. I had George before as an ACM 310 professor before this semester. He's unique and a lot of fun not only as a professor, but a person as well. I just can't believe that I was able to do things with the editing software that I wouldn't imagine that I could do. In the end, this class has been fun and challenging at the same time.
George is a funny guy. Made class fun.
Submission materials were rather hard to understand for last assignment. Point system offers no option to make up any points missed.
Needs to do more hands on with each student on learning how to do certain things with editing in audition.

How I tried so hard to learn what he was teaching and learned a lot. However the fact that we were told to use a software that we had no instruction in was a tragedy. I am getting a very poor grade simply because had multiple technical difficulties with little if any instruction on how to work it. I have been on the Dean's list for some time and can not believe how unfair it was for a teacher to expect his student, especially ones with disabilities, to be able to perform in the way he expected. Many of the students had their own equipment and a vast knowledge of the software we were required to use. So in my opinion this class did little more than hurt my grade point average. We also were required to make teams which helped very little. I helped several classmates with their projects and had no help with mine which probably needed the most. So yes this was the worst instructional course I have attended in my 5 years in the UH system.Especially since it was 4 hrs long, there could have been much more time learning what we were trying to accomplish. I intend to bring this matter to the advisory board for further consideration considering my grade.
The projects I was able to produce this semester and also how much my projects have grown over the semester. I'll also remember Prof. George Wang for his great sense of humor!
How rigorous it is, and how, much more than any other course I've ever taken, it required a very self-directed approach.
I don't know how to finish this sentence... but this course was fun if that's what it's asking. And Wang is a total goofball.
The friends I've made and the camaraderie we've developed through our group work.
Professor Wang's accent.
14. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
How to effectively work with others on film sets.
Reassurance in my own skills
Basic film techniques
The knowledge that one must know what they are working with in order to achieve what they were supposed to be taught to do. I am a PC person so using an apple based project was extremely difficult and made the class that much more overwhelming.
I learned the correct pre-production process and also how to work sound equipment. I also learned how to work better with others in a crew.
A deeper understanding of how I work with others, what interests me, and what I can and cannot do, in terms of creative endeavors.
I learned what it means to be an ACM major and have a better idea of what I would have been in store for had I continued down this track.
The importance of proper scheduling, committing to group efforts, and adapting to new technology
Now I realize I hate making film.

16. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
He is always willing to help and you can email him or see him during his office hours about anything.
secrets and tips for premire and shortfilmdepot
His knowledge
Is great personality and ability to keep the students awake for 4 hours. A very wonderful individual, but should seriously give much more instruction in the software that he requires his students to use. Being a PC User I felt at a great disadvantage in this course.
His sense of humor and helpful criticism when we showcased our films. Never had a boring class.
He is very approachable. I had no problem coming to him to talk or ask for help.
He's a nice guy.
His experience and knowledge of filmmaking really showed in his lectures
He was very truthful.

18. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Basic development on how to make a film.
being able to create films
Learning about film, audio and editing. Would be better to learn it before your projects though.
The way that the class was willing to learn if given the opportunity. the personalty of the instructor. Many of the students agreed with me on how hard it was to use the software, and many who were unfamiliar wit it were lucky enough to receive outside help through friends. I however did not.
I liked being able to do our own narrative at the end of the semester. Time limit made it a bit hard and most people went overtime anyways, but I loved the different types of films we got to produce.
I liked how it threw us directly into the process, but I had some problems with that as well, as I note later.
I liked how it wasn't required to buy all the crap we needed to complete this class. That was helpful.
The workshops
Going to the media center.
19. Comment on the physical environment of the classroom (space, noise, lighting, seating, etc.)
The space was huge! And the air conditioning was really cold.
Shitty for movie viewing
None
Was very cold for 4 hours. Morgues and walk in freezers are warmer.
It helps to have a big projector to show films, but it does get pretty chilly in the room.
n/a.
It's an lecture hall that is used by like, 20 other majors. It was nice, I guess.
It really helped focus on viewing films, but not so conductive for groups to discuss
The air conditioning is ridiculous.
20. Other comments:
more adobe lectures should be given
I just feel that this class could have been so much more if more attention was spent on the technical aspects of the class instead of doing skits on what film crews are supposed to say during filming. I just thought that for me it was a total waste of time and actually hurt my academic standing. The time and effort that I put into it makes me very frustrated for the grade that I am about to receive. The instructor also did not put the grade book up until right before the last project so we had no idea what are status in the class was. If I had seen it like it was supposed to be according to the syllabus, I would have definitely tried to make a much more academic effort, if possible, to do better in this class.
Being exposed to lighting and sound only once is not enough to get a student comfortable with using it on their own; to expect the student to be able to use them proficiently is even more ludicrous. A lot of the problems of this class are caused by its only meeting once a week. Too much information is forced into one session, and no student, of the ones I asked, myself included, could remember it all. Four hours is much too long for a course. To expect a student to be completely engaged throughout it is silly, since most will check out after an hour. All ACM classes are like this, however, and this way of operating, in my opinion, does not make the student's learning a priority. I realize that this course is to be considered a "crash course" in film making, and that to be proficient in lighting, sound, and editing, they each have their own respective course -- but the very light skimming of the surface done in 310 isn't sufficient. It should not be taught once to never be mentioned again. This is not a personal attack on the professor, who I enjoyed and thought was helpful, but just in the course structure, and of ACM itself. There are problems that need to be addressed.
Thanks a lot!
Thank you, I'm change my major

9. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
I found it most helpful that his fun personality always made the class enjoyable, and it helped to pass the time so quickly.
Wang is an amazing teacher who cares about his students. He approaches each student with kind-generosity, yet at the same time concern and good critcism for their work. Not only is he sweet, but he's funny, making the class...well, fun. Normally, 4 hours appears to be a drag, but it's the highlight of my week. 4 hours isn't enough. I'm planning to take more of his classes in the near future.
He was entertaining and kept our interest in this 3.5 hour class.
he is always available for help during office hours, is nice and tries to help students
He knows what he's teaching and is approchable at the same time.
He showed us some examples from previous classes on what we needed to do.
Guy is an open book. Helpful insights. Fair grader.
his experience in the field
He was approachable and kind.
He is very honest about topics, performance and ideas regarding this subject. Extremely friendly and very approachable.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked how the nature of the course was to encourage us to depend on our classmates for help. It really strengthened bonds, especially in this field where communication is important.
I loved the creative flow of the class, especially during lectures and discussions.
I liked sharing and critiquing each others projects.
class production, it was fun and helpful to be able to see how other students go through the process of filming other than your own group
Being able to make friends who all know what everyone is going through, therefore willing to help each other out on projects.
I liked working on the class project with everyone and watching short movie examples.
Hands on filmmaking. Critiques/screenings were something to look forward to. Laid back atmosphere.
screening films for our peers
Production.
Critiques... very interesting.

I wish the class was spread out throughout the week, but then again a crash course of 4 hours also helps.
great professor! funny and engaging. learned a lot
n/a
Thanks for everything!
i wish there were a class in between 255 and 310 where the whole class and the professor could work on a film together before we are expected to make one on our own.
You are a great professor!
My only suggestion to Prof. Wang would be to try and not let the students take over the classroom. Spent way too much time distracted with non-relevant topics when that time could be used to cover more important information.

If we had questions he would gladly demonstrate a way to solve the problem
Good professor, knowledgeable
George knows a lot of information pertaining to sound and it helped students understand what it takes as a sound producer and editor.
He's good at explaining things in a real world way.
He's very funny and approachable. He's easy to talk to and is always willing to help.
His openness and willingness to share his time and knowledge.
His approach is relaxed yet not lazy. I appreciate that.
- The professor answers all questions clearly.
He is so nice and approachable
He was very knowledgable about the subject, which helped when he was teaching us.
Understanding and willing to help
knowledgeable and fair
Very straight forward most of the time.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The projects that we did were fun
I liked the in class productions. It gave me a chance to see how everything worked and that sounds were created outside of the set and then placed in with the final mix.
I liked the practicum of working with sound.
The "how-to" lectures; the class itself, it's helped me to become more aware of how sound functions within a film.
Lectures.
- The projects are fun, the recording sessions as well.
Learning to create sounds for cinema
I loved the ADR/Foley sessions because it gave me great hands on experience.
the recording process
project presentations and recording
11. Other comments:
I feel that this course would be more effective if we had a lab type class where the class works on the same project in class at the same time where the instructor would give us step by step instructions on how to perform each task instead of listening and going home with whatever information we retained
I didn't feel like I really got a sense of how to do good audio design, the lectures were long and sometimes confusing. I think that students should have access to professional equipment for mixing etc. and should go more in depth on how to design good sound
I wish we could have more hands on lab to understand technique. If we had a lab of computers where we would follow along, many of us would understand sound editing techniques better.
George is one of the best instructors ACM has to offer.

George is the best teacher I have had in the ACM program
great teacher
Very understanding as an instructor
He was very approachable and knew a lot about film. He also helped me to see my potential as a film maker. He told me what was bad and what was good, rather than sugar coating my mistakes. He also was very honest and reliable and understanding.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Complete hands-on experience.
I liked the guest speakers.
Screening days. It was always interesting to see what my classmates had created as well as how they critiqued my own projects.
Going over everyone's movies. Seeing everyone elses creative ideas
George gave really good feedback on projects and I felt comfortable opening up and asking for help when needed.
I liked the opportunity to make films. I'm new to film, but I can see the difference in my work between my first and third film. I also liked doing three different projects and aspects. I think it could have been slower, starting out fresh and not knowing what to do but overall valuable fun course.
11. Other comments:
wish they had the guest speakers before assigning a screen write or another assignment.
To me, the class was a bit long. I understand that it has to be, since we meet only once a week, but 4 hours right around dinnertime left me hungry and restless more often than not. I felt the "quiz" as it was called was weighed very heavily, perhaps a little too much so. Not to mention some of the questions, having been written by students, were worded very confusingly. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this class.
George deserves a pay raise
Would be better if the students had a lab to work in when editing video, less stress on students and gives the ability to use class time to work on projects and we can also ask questions when we need help on something and also throw out ideas to other teammates when editing. With group work, it would of been nice to have to only do a single project as a group rather than individual projects. It was tough to get help but if it's their project too, students will make time to be there and help. If they don't come then the team leader can note that to the Instructor.
1. Have due dates be the same for both A/B and C/D. They always got a week longer than the first A/B section. I felt good getting my project done before them, but sometimes I wished I had more time. Having them turn in their DVDs on the same day and screening them the next class. 2. More hands on learning; Even though we got to play in the studio with the lights and cameras, I felt like I still don't fully understand anything I learned there. Anne took us into the studio one day and basically told us "you have 30 minutes to set up lights. go" and we had no idea what we were doing and she didnt assist us. 30 minutes later we were packing up with no knowledge of what we had just done. 3. Testing of the cameras. I know everything is quick, but having us all learn the camera and being forced to take the test one week later when we LITERALLY just barely touched it was a little unfair. Most students failed the first test because they didn't get to hold the camera during a certain part or didn't catch something Gregg said. He was harsh on the students, and I understand it is expensive stuff but some of us have never held a camera and need extra help but cant make it into an open house due to work or other classes. 4. Gregg was a little arrogant. I understand he is in charge of the cameras and equipment but we are new, inexperienced, and fresh to all of it. He needs to slow down and understand when we need help. 5. Lectures are too long. 4 hours sitting in class sometimes without a break in between was an overload.

9. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
He used humor to convey his points.
His wide array of knowledge and skills and his disposition.
He would find times to help you out when you have time
George's positive attitude made it a delight to attend class.
Going through the steps with the tools in Final Cut Pro.
The discussions on theory were the most useful.
A smart editor
All of his knowledge about editing.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Cooperative and kind teacher, excellent class.
Learning the technical aspects of working with software.
how creative you can get with your assignment
The visual aids: online PDF on transcoding and actually watching him show the different tools in the different programs.
Anytime we watched something from "The Cutting Edge" we were pretty much in good hands.
Hands on projects
I enjoyed the projects as well as the lectures. It was all around the best class.
11. Other comments:
One of the best instructors in ACM.
I wish it was more in a lab so it could be a little more hands on with the editing programs
It would be nice to have a longer class period of Adobe Affects and Photoshop. Maybe have the lesson for two class periods instead of just one day.
There really should be two editing courses. One on pure theory and the other on the technical side of managing the tools. As is, by having to learn both at once I feel like we miss out a bit.
Anne is great

9. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
He is a great instructor! Keeps the class environment very enjoyable, yet we always learn and do a lot of stuff in class. He has great constructive criticism about the work you produce, therefore always allowing room for improvement.
He is positive and helpful. He is generous with his time.
Whenever I had questions and I e-mailed them to him, he would answer them and helped me out big time.
He really goes and digs down deep to the source to help you understand the material or if you have a problem, he will do the best that he can possibly do to help solve it. I like how he mediated and encouraged communication between our class as beginners and introducing us to upperclassmen in the major and faculty who are of assistance.
had a use full website, and always tried to help answer the classes difficult questions.
He is very direct and tells you stuff straight up. He doesn't force his ways of doing stuff on you, but he does give suggestions that helped me a lot. He is a really nice guy - he isn't intimidating even though he knows a lot and has a lot of experience, I wasn't afraid to ask "dumb" questions. He is really funny too.
He is a nice guy who is easy to talk to and ask questions
I think George is both optimistic and realistic. He tells you your movies are good, but at the same time tells you they are terrible. So I found that this method was more of a personal challenge to me, and caused me to really show George what I could do with my final project.
His resourcefulness in regards to troubleshooting audio and editing problems was invaluable. Also a great and relatable teacher and I'm sure that anyone who has taken him has had lots of fun and has grown as a filmmaker and a person!
He made class fun and created a great learning environment.
Very funny and insightful. He made the class enjoyable. He was also critical when he needed to be. This really challenged me to do better (I seriously could hear his voice in my head during my shoot).
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The bond I formed with fellow classmates through helping out on each other's production sets and editing and such was a wonderful experience, since this industry is all about the people you know.
Hands on training exercises.
Working on our movie which had something to do with assignment 3 and making new friends.
I liked how a lot of the activities done in the class were hands on.
being free to film what we wanted.
I liked how everyone in the class had fun together. When we were broken up into groups of 3 people, I was kind of pissed, like, how can a group of 3 people make a film? But it turned out to be good because this forced people to interact with other groups - eventually there were no boundaries and everyone was helping everyone regardless of which group they were in. Because of this, I think our class grew a lot closer than previous production classes.
I liked how George brought the class together as one.
I like the fact that we are taught the basics of using a camera, lights, sound, but ultimately it's on us to learn how to master them. So I like the independence that we're allowed, while it is a double edged sword in that we aren't given more feedback as to how to do certain things; I think ultimately it allows us to grow closer as a class and shows us who we'd like to work with in the future.
The hands on classes were among the most helpful. Being able to touch, see, and visualize with the equipment alongside us is infinitely more valuable than charts and graphs.
I really liked the hands-on apects and that we actually made films instead of just talked about making films like some classes
I liked the camaraderie that was developed in our class
11. Other comments:
He is a proffesional instructor that all students can benefit from.
This class challenged me because it taught me things about the movie industry that I did not know. A lot of the information taught by Professor Wang was new to me. I enjoyed watching my classmates' projects which were profiles and movies. Maybe this class will help me not only with other ACM classes, but for the future in the movie/music video industry as well.
i think a balance of lecture and more hands on with the teacher would have helped alot, there's one class a week, 4 hours i think there should have bin more hands on activity's through out the semester instead of just throwing us out into the field after one day of a quick basic lecture and class project.
I don't think that all the paperwork on the student project completion list is necessary for ACM 310 students.
Really great class!
I would have liked to have had a little bit more structure in the beginning of the semester regarding scheduling a shoot (how to break down a script not only for shots, but for scheduling as well) and plan an actual feasible schedule.

9. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
George is extremely knowledgeable in his field. Video editing is very technical and can be tough to learn, but George is able to keep our spirits up with his great sense of humor.
Leads by demonstration. Very knowledgeable in this field.
He knows so much about post-sound.
George is extremely nice, and is always willing to help-- inside or outside of class. He is extremely quick to respond via email, and he is always trying to give feedback and help if you have problems. He is understanding when issues arise, and gives honest feedback in class to help with the growth of the students. George is extremely knowledgeable in the field, so he gives a lot of professional tips about organization and workflow.
he goes over thing multiple times, so we are able to understand it more
His happy go lucky attitude. He is fun to be around.
George is completely candid and upfront. If something is bad, he just says so (as well as if something is good). He is also very clear about what it takes to be a working professional in his field.
His honesty and corrective criticism. Sometimes there were communication issues that would cause the class to drag on too long, but overall, if I can understand where he's coming from, I learn something valuable from the course.
He is flexible and helpful for students.
He is knowledgeable and helpful
Hes awesome.
10. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The hands-on foley and ADR work.
Recording sounds and adr on site and learning the correct methods for getting the best sound possible on set.
Learning skills not theory.
Learning soundtrack pro.
I enjoyed the foley & ADR recording sessions because it was hands on, and different. Learning soundtrack pro was also very helpful, and I definitely learned alot about sound editing through this program.
doing the actual adr and foli stuff, and understanding how we can minipulate sound to work for our films
Group folly and ADR work.
The whole course was centered around completely redoing the soudn for a scene from a commercially done movie. We covered all aspects of post-prodution sound in the process, and we got so see the different approaches that people took in their final sound mixes for the movie.
I liked making the foley sounds and being surprised at how layering can make it sound completely different. The production part of foley was the most fun and valuable, mostly because I had never done anything like it before. Learning about equipment has served useful as well.
Sound desgining
The foley/adr project was very fun and useful in learning how to mix sound
The professor is awesome.
11. Other comments:
George is a great teacher, I hope that I can continue to work with him somehow even after I graduate.
Sometimes goes off on tangents.
Great course and great teacher.
Fun class.
It would be great if this were taught in a lab. It's hard to take notes on how to edit, and then go home and do it yourself (it's an entirely different thing when you're doing it yourself). Also, I think it would be helpful in class to see more examples (watch films or clips) to see good audio and bad audio, to learn about different techniques that sound professionals use.
I really enjoyed this class!
I would've preffered haveing more deadlins for out submissions for this class. That would've helped me stay on track and make steady progress instead of pushing the projects to the back burning in favor of other more pressing issues. It would also be immensly helpful to have the course taught in a lab where we could actually use the software we are suppossed to learn, instead of just hearing our professor talk about it. Even a room where we couls actually plug in and use our laptops (which we are *required* to buy but NEVER actually have to have for class) would take care of the situation. The lack of the appropriate classroom is a stark reminder of UH's failure to measure up to the standards of higher ranked universities. Fortunately that didn't prevent George from doing an excellent job and and almost make us forget we don't have any appropriate facilities to conduct the class in.
I hope you had fun in Italy!
I enjoyed the class a lot!
Bye.

A chance to really explore my (long dormant) creative side.
that we are entitled to make mistakes and also we must learn from them so that we can progress with our movie making abilities.
Well I am interested in film production so he has taught me ALOT about pre-production and I've learned a lot more about it editing.
phrases and terms
I've learned to have more control in carrying out my vision for my projects. Thanks to Professor Wang's helpful advice and suggestions.
I learned a lot from what the teachers asked us to do. I learned how much effort and time it takes to make a decent film and what you need in order to succeed in this profession.
I learned very valuable lessons that I can take with me with my work outside of class.
Learning how to work as a team in video production. I learned that your product/film comes out a lot better when you have a team that is willing to help you in any way.
I feel that this course was the first school course that I have been excited to attend and complete the work. I am so much more confident and happy with my life. I have been exposed to the film community of Hawaii and feel that I am headed in the direction of my dreams.
advancement into ACM program with mucho interest

always around to answer questions
His tips and suggestions after each presentation day. I like that he is very particular and pays close attention.
He had really good constructive criticism, he wasn't afraid to tell you what worked and what didn't work and he really helped us to figure out what worked in our films.
He was respectful towards the students, was easy to approach, and never hesitated to help out with student projects.
His critiques was very nicely done. It was fair and unbiased.
He knew a lot about Final Cut.
Chun Han Wang always replied to my emails immediately and with helpful advice. He seems to want the students to succeed in making a film that they can be proud of. He always knows how to help you improve.

Making the films, it was great to work with my classmates and learn from each other.
I really appreciated the hand on learning.
Working with my video production crew and producing short films
The freedom to explore my creativity.
I liked being able to make my own films as a requirement. Because of the strict time schedule I was able to work in a true-to-film environment. We seemed to learn just the right information before we made a film that reflected the teachings.

I wish there were more practical workshops on cinematography in the course---especially on lighting.
I would definitely recommend him to all my friends in the ACM program and I look forward to taking more courses from him and I'm glad he's my academic advisor because he is extremely helpful with that too!
Love this class!
Great professor, I would definitely want to take another course from him.
Great class and a very awesome professor.

The main thing is working against deadlines. I was never great at making deadlines and this class forced me to become a little better at turning stuff in on time.
Seeing other creative students.

Basic editing techniques to communicate visual storytelling in an effective way.
How to put together a simple DVD with multiple features. It also opens my eyes to many different ways to cut the same thing.
Learned a lot about the editing side of production and also learnd how to make dvds.
i became more efficient working with dvd studio pro
Take the time to learn editing. Do what you love to do and never give up (Marsha)
patience.
I learned different techniques of editing, but nothing that i wouldnt have been able to look up on google.
Although I already had a good knowledge of editing prior to coming into this class, I was able to refine my skills and develop ways to achieving things in a more efficient manner. I also have a more heightened perspective on editing and the job of an editor.

Emails
He's funny.
He is very knowledgeable about Final Cut Pro.
He was very knowledgeable about technical basics such as video/audio formats and what the differences were. Small things like this proved to be extremely important in every edit we did. It was also interesting learning about digital versus film, something I rarely hear about in ACM.
He answers questions very effectively and informatively in detail.
he's helpful and open to questions. he does his best to teach students who are not getting something.
How to make a presentation using DVD studio pro
answered any questions
Enthusiasm about the topic.
He is very blunt in his critique of our work yet he is also very tactful. He also has a good sense of humor and makes what would normally be a very boring subject seem more interesting.

A lot of hands on, not in-class, but hands on in general. We would learn material then are set forth to try and complete the tasks.
Editing
Learning how to edit.
Learning how to make editing footage easier by using certain tools in FCP.
I liked analyzing the theories behind edits (when to cut and pacing), rather than the fcp tutorials. Watching scenes and analyzing why they cut it a certain way was interesting.
Learning how to use the final cut software.
the days we had speakers were very interesting, learning from professionals in the field.
I'd say learning about what's possible in editing and seeing other's students work. Marsha Williams presentation in the end was truly inspiring.
re-editing past series.
The ability to work with good footage rather than student level footage.
Immediate feedback on projects and in-class demonstrations.

Definitely a good course for those who consider themselves beginners at editing. I was a bit disappointed with other people's critiques, they didn't seem to help me very much... not a lot of insight.
Great class.
I think it will be better if this was a lab course. Learn by doing because it's easy to watch until you start doing it yourself. If it was a class work, we can help each other. George was a great teacher though.
None.
I had a lot of fun on the projects, especially the first project.

He has real-world experiences.
George is very friendly and easy to talk to.
he pushed his students. gave very harsh and strong critiques, and expecting alot from everyone.
He is willing to listen to what the students have to say and is very forthright when it comes to critiquing students' work.
He needs to be better organized.
Great personality, broke the ice very quickly which made everyone warm up to each other quickly and helped build a base for everyone to communicate with each other. It was easily the best attribute of the class.
The way he was honest about failures and didn't baby us.
Very enthusiastic about the class, gets involved in individual projects, easy to talk to and helpful when we come across any problems.

Hands-on learning.
I enjoyed everything about the course. I learned something new in every class not just from George but the rest of the students as well. George did a great job of making students work/help each other.
Production was fun. I like the we have access to equipment
Lectures
The format of the class was well planned, although could have moved faster to give more time for the larger projects. The final project definitely needs more time.
The filming of our actual films.
Hands on training in the beginning of the semester.

21. Other comments:
This course needs to be taught in 2 semesters (and I don't mean 310 + 410). There's a difference btwn 'telling' and teaching and 15 weeks is hardly enough time to 'teach' ALL of these elements, sufficiently. PROVIDE A SOLID FOUNDATION if you want these students to KNOW what they're doing on a set. Break it down. Talk about the different jobs on set and who does what instead of barking at students to assume roles they may not fully understand. TEACH lighting, sound, equipment, pre-production, tricks of the trade, trouble-shooting,. TEACH these things! Don't just say 'oh by the way, don't trip the wiring when you plug in the lights'. SHOW us how to avoid doing that - don't just say it and move on! TEACH the students how to fill out Film Office permits (city, state and UH). It would go a long way to 1) easing stress on students & 2) help to build professional relationships btwn both ACM and individual students. It looks better for ACM when students aren't driving film permit staff crazy because they're not sure how to fill out the applications. Spend TIME on all these elements, MAKE the course hands-on based, rather than lecture-based. The guest lectures were interesting, but hardly the course to bring them in. There's just too much BASIC information that has to get across for students to fully appreciate what the guests have to say. While some excellent films can come out of this course, a lot of that is from students who already have great experience in either film, video, photography and even theater. For those who don't, this course just doesn't provide a SOLID enough foundation to make quality films. I realize there are budget issues, etc., but in order to REALLY make this course effective, it really needs to be lengthened into 2 semesters.
Need more time for the final project! Little more than 1 month is very intense, especially when my group has 4 films instead of 3.

He is personable and approachable. He wants to help you learn and takes the material seriously. He lets you learn by doing and makes suggestions to help you along the way. He is fun, yet firm. A very good professor!
Sound is generally overlooked in other classes. After the valuable things George taught us about sound, my films will never sound the same.
He shares his point of views and knowledge about things in a very interesting way. A way that a lot of us don't think about and it challenges us, I liked this course.
He presents a tedious subject in a fun and interesting way to keep the students engaged throughout.
George is very knowledgeable in this area, and he never hesitates to answer any questions to the best of his ability. Love George!
His honesty and strong knowledge in the subject.
Professor Wang manages to teach in a fun and entertaining style, and at the same time to be very encouraging to his students.
He helps us a lot, and makes the content we are learnining entertaining and relates it in ways so we will learn and remember. We learn a lot through hands on learning which works very well.
Always willing to help us.

19. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked the hands on learning and having the opportunity to collaborate with fellow classmates. I liked having the opportunity to work with quality raw material.
I enjoyed making teams and doing different jobs in post-sound.
The hands on experience of re-creating and creating sound to fit our piece of the footage was very interesting. It shows another side of the film industry that a lot of us take advantage.
I liked watching and learning from the class. We made similar mistakes and individual mistakes that we all ended up learning from.
Learning about Foley work was fun and challenging.
The structure of the course and the project curriculum.
Viewing examples of sound design in films, commercials and television programs and then discussing them in class was very helpful and informative. Also, I thought that the assignments were challenging and fulfilling. I particularly enjoyed the discussion of each classmate's projects after screening them.
The hands on experience.
Foley work.

It would be nice to have more lab time to work on projects with someone to help when needed.
A very fun and necessary course.
i had fun!
I only wish more time was spent on Soundtrack Pro - it is a very complex program.
Class sessions should be held in a recording studio and/or proper screening room with adequate stereo sound system. Obviously, there is budget concerns regarding this issue. But I hope one day that it will come true.
i think a slightly shorter piece at like 3 min might be better for the whole Foley part of the class cause then we can experience it in a less rushed more real way

We made our own film! Everyone inthe ACM should get his opportunity. We worked really well as a team. George was a great advisor; he came on set a lot and was even an extra in our film!
This was a very challenging course for me, but I learned quite a bit from it. This was the biggest test of my college career, putting together a film on my own, including hiring a crew, finding actors, locations and everything that was needed.

the critiques about the film, they could have been harsh at times but thats how you get better.

That professor Wang was very knowledgeable about the field we were learning and always interacted well during classes and made the class fun and easy to understand!!
his well rounded knowledge and experience in this field.
He was willing to help students no matter what the issue was.
The hands on experience and knowledge of the professor.

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
I liked his approach, very casual and laid back but very demanding. He is very approachable and very free with advice and suggestions for how to do things.
Professor George Wang is a interesting fellow. His grading system is very critical however, he makes his think in creative ways.
George's easy going manner and great humor made the class fun.
Always available to help out and very gracious.
He is willing to help when we as students decide to ask him. Most wait until its too late or never ask him for help but once we do, he always tries to do his best. One thing I find most valuable is that he gives constructive criticism and informs the students about areas where we need to improve and areas where we are exceeding.
very funny and easy to communicate with
He was nice, he taught us the lessons in a timely fashion. He was aware of the limitations of editing class as a lecture and adjusted well. Answered questions, thoroughly. Sense of humor. Knowledgeable in subject.
the ability one has to talk to the teacher

19. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I learned how to edit. I don't know who the person is who decided that 310 should be a prerequisite to 372 instead of the other way around, and I don't know if that person is incompetent, sadistic, unaware about basic educational principles, or all three, but I do know that dirty SOB will burn in muslim hell for 1,000 eternities, and that helps me sleep at night. :-) This was the most "empowering" class I have yet had in the ACM program, because it actually taught me *skills* that I need to make movies, rather than forcing me to make movies without knowing what I was doing.
The trailer project... There should have been more projects.
I enjoyed George's teaching style. I also enjoyed the freedom he gave us to play with the materials. The only drawback was that we didn't have classes in a lab which I think would have helped me immensely. That is the reason why I rated the course good and not excellent.
I enjoyed the projects!
I liked the class discussion of each project because it gave me good feedback about what to do and influenced me to do better that the other person. I got feedback and also ideas about editing thanks to the other students and the instructor.
the projects were very fun and interesting.
Applying the lessons into our work outside of the class.
a lot of them

13. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Instructor's knowledge and course material and the guest speakers.
Group Presentations at the end of the course.
Having multiple guest speakers and seeing their different films.
Studying the diversity of different film genres, meeting acclaimed film makers, and George Wang's enthusiasm for the course.
It's always interested to watch films and then be able to directly communicate with the director of the film. I did notice animation and games were largely overlooked in this class though.
I enjoyed hearing the opinions of industry professionals
Gay cinema was interesting. I did not realize it was so present in early Hollywood. It was eye-opening to say the least.
The guest presenters were great and the final presentations were very informative.
Student presentations... especially the ones on video games. I also liked the Professor's Martial Arts presentation. Every movie we watched was great. The guest speakers were all fascinating. Gay Cinema was wonderfully artsy. I liked meeting the Shanghai students and watching Keahi translate Mandarin. Professor Wang needs to play more violent video games.
Watching and learning about films I hadn't previously seen or really heard about. Also professor Wang is amazing. :)
Conversational environment
I really enjoyed the guest speakers and the in-class movie viewings. The presentations we are having at the end of the course are also very interesting because I am learning and finding out a whole bunch of new stuff that I never knew before.
Having guest speakers and watching films.
The presentations at the end by students were a nice touch. We also got to meet some interesting filmmakers who I had not previously met. It was really fun and interesting all semester long.
