Class Boredom Feedback

Film Feedback Template with Filmmaker Commentary


This short video was created with the intention of showing the behavior of a student during a boring class online. With the help of a family member and a very talented dog actor, the film came together.


A typically motivated student quickly loses focus during yet another Zoom class.

Intent / Goals

  • FOR YOU: I wanted to be able to incorporate at least one of Murch’s techniques in this video; I used eye trace as well as story advancing cuts.
  • FOR THE PROJECT: I wanted the audience to feel the gradual loss of motivation of the student on screen.


  • I looked further into Walter Murch’s six editing rules.
  • Walter Murch is a world-renowned film editor who has been working in the industry for decades.


  • Was my goal of using the eye trace rule achieved?
  • Is it clear that this is a montage?
