11/07/14 - 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.

02/04/14 - 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 Show More Show Less

05/30/10 - 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. Show More Show Less

06/24/09 - If you have him as a teacher you have to make sure you do the written projects well because he can grade video projects unpredictably. Also he needs a haircut really badly. Show More Show Less
