Overall: A
The class is full of reading and studying, memorizing concepts, parts of equipment, film stocks and more random information than you can imagine existed before beginning.  Or at least it was for me, a complete novice at the start of the quarter.  It's a lot of work, but if you put the effort in, you'll get a lot out of it.  You put more effort in, you'll get even more out.  It's a little like physics... only interesting. 
Should do to do well...
Students who are persuing a career in film and television should not complain about this professor.  It's an introductory course, yes, but if the material or personality of the instructor is too demanding for someone, how can they expect to make it in the real world?  So what to do?  Take the class head on, and don't grumble along the way. 
Should know...
Any student can do well in this course if they put their best effort fourth.  Make a point to learn the material and when shooting projects, be sure to plan ahead.  Corkey makes a point of guiding you through the whole way.  Listen to her, and you'll do fine.  Creativity is encouraged in this class but mastery of basic concepts is expected.  Just do what you're told and then do a little more.  You'll get your “A” and maybe a shot at success. 
Student Competency: Beginner
Student's Grade: A
Liked Instructor?: Really Liked
Corkey is a passionate filmmaker and a very real person who doesn't sugar coat things for her less talented students.  When a student succeeds, she tells them, and when they don't, she lets them know.  She makes a point of distinguishing between her personal opinions on student projects, and the technical aspects of their work... meaning, if she doesn't like your particular brand of comedy, she'll let you know, but she won't mark you down on an assignment designed to test your knowledge of the equipment.  All in all, Corkey is a fair, yet challenging professor who will teach you what you need to know.  And for those of you who complain... If you can't handle her class, you're not gonna be able to handle Hollywood... you might as well give up now.
