This class does require a lot of work and time commitment, but the flexibility afforded by the multitude of assignments means that this course can be fine-tuned to your interests. As long as you incorporate ideas or characters or shows that you find fun and entertaining, you’ll find the motivation to complete the assignments. I think this is especially important for the final project, which requires unifying many assignments to tell one story. If the story you’re telling is compelling for you, you’ll be motivated to work on the project consistently (which is the ideal way to work). This makes the process minimally painful, and can actually make the work incredibly fun.
