Mr. Raines is a chill, laid back dude who is atypical of California, however, he treats his students like they're interns at Universal Studios working under Steven Spielberg. His Video/Film class is an awesome waste of a period and is really easy to pass and earn a visual arts credit in.
he is very cool.
Ok, I've dealt with Mr. Raines for three years so far and I can say without a doubt he is one of the worst teachers I have ever had. He will promise help and advise but has just scolded my group for making a mistake. When I came to CCA I wanted to be a film maker in life, but Mr. Raines made it so that I'm not even sure if I want to minor in film production or study in college. He is more of a boss than a teacher and has only taught me that you will deal with horrible people in career choice.
Had experience was knowledgable but didn't do anything ever in class.
He expects the best. He's really fun and cool but be sure to stay on task during class. He may seem scary at times, but get to know him, he's a nice guy! Get creative and be respectful and you'll do great.
best teacher in the world!
The guy's condescending, and plays favorites, hard. Make sure he doesn't dislike you, or he will go out of his way to ruin your experience in class. He doesn't really know anything about film making. You'll learn that really early on. You're better off asking students for help or following tutorials. You don't really need to know anything, as long as he likes you. He claims prizes won by students for "the program" (himself). He's single-handedly ruined what used to be an amazing show.
Mr. Raines as a video/film teacher was completely fine. Once you learn that he WILL punish you if you do not try, you will be okay. He won't remember your name, he won't care if you get better at making videos, and he won't try to teach very much. But I guess it's video/film, so who really cares
Easy grader, but plays favorites. Very condescending. Doesn't teach much either (but it is video/film, so most people take it as a blow off class. He's not about to go into Eisenstein's montage theory or anything).
This guy is an alright teacher, but otherwise a complete tool.
he is pretty cool but will sometimes punish only one person even though there are a couple people right there doing the exact same thing to make a point also you always have to take the initiative
Mr. Raines is a pretty cool guy. He's kind of a big deal.
Easy, plus he doesn't expect much. But he can just be cruel to certain kids in the class just to make a joke. He was nice to me, he is just a fake.
Really chill, pretty easy, there's really nothing bad I can say about him :)
Best teacher i've ever had! I would not be where I am in life if it wasn't for his support. If you have a passion for this industry, you'de be a fool not to take from this award winning teacher!
Freakin awesome teacher. Until he left my senior year. What the heck man?
Mr. Raines was one of my favorite teachers ever!!! He's one of the few High School teachers I still talk to. He's always there for students and is always willing to help out his students... Take him!!
