So basically I'm going to fail a crucial course in my college program because everything that could have possibly gone wrong with the major assignment did go wrong.
First assignment, worth 25%. Had to make a video. Video came out too long for one DvD. I had to split it into 3 DVDs. Get the assignment back and it turns out an entire fucking THIRD of the video was copied twice, so an entire third of my project was completely missing. 8.5/25.
Second assignment, worth 25%. Working with a partner. Trying to figure out a good place to film, as well as dealing with our school' bullshit-as-fuck 48-hours-in-advance camera booking policy, we decide to do our filming on the wednesday the following week. The musician we're supposed to film e-mails us and tells his his version of the assignment is due on TUESDAY, so we have to rush our asses with our crappy point and shoots and film last second.
Then my partner's footage says FUCK YOU and refuses to go into Premier Pro. The only programs available on the internet to convert his camera's footage into an appropriate format either cost a ridiculous amount of money or slap an ugly ass watermark on my video. 13/25.
First test. Filled with vague as fuck questions 70% of the class agrees are vague. Also, is a theory test in a practical class. Teacher disregards complaints of 70% because 30% got lucky and guessed the right answers. 5/10.
As it stands I have to miss zero classes (which really isn't a problem for me), get 80% on my next assignment AND get a 70 on my next test JUST TO PASS THE COURSE. Knowing this teacher, that's not going to fucking happen.
