Video film is one of the best classes at TPHS. It's a fun elective because as long as you put effort in, it's impossible to get less than an A. Just hope that you get a good group semester 1... otherwise it's hell when you disagree with other group members during projects. The movies we watch in this class are always interesting (except for maybe The Village, that movie sucks). Mr. Brunkhorst is one of the most passionate teachers at torrey pines about his class.

Brunky is one of the best teachers I've ever had! He is really funny, and his homeworks are actually fun to do. (there, I said it) Also, he trusts everyone sooooo much! He just believes in every single one of us! No matter how poor you think your English skills are, he will still encourage you and tell you that you're great and can do better! He also helps us find out our "inner voice" as he often calls it. It's not just about English, you also learn a lot about yourself and how you can be a better person!

Mr. Brunkhorst is by far one of the best teachers at TP. His assignments are actually worthwhile, and he'll help you with anything you need. Don't abuse his trust. The nicest, most understanding guy who is ready and willing to help you out in any way he can.
