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 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.

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).

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

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.

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!!
