University Classes I Have Taken Listed From Best To Worst

  1. FVIM-213 Intermedia. While many classmates were either pretentious ass-hats or dolts, the class was mostly inhabited by sincere and interesting people. I guess also this is he class where I produced more of my better ideas..
  2. HUMN-313 Script Writing/Concept Develop. How to write screenplays by a conceptual artist sculptor. Was a bunch of exercises to show the possibilities of narrative forms; half the class left after the first three classes for being "too weird"..
  3. MHIS-329 SU01 Studies in Current Film/Video.
