Using vivid black-and-white examples from “Eraserhead” and “The Elephant Man,” David teaches you how to think cinematically.
An avant-garde figure in filmmaking, David Lynch introduced mainstream audiences to art-house films. Now the Oscar-nominated director of Mulholland Drive teaches his cross-disciplinary creative process. Learn how he catches ideas, translates them into a narrative, and moves beyond formulaic storytelling. Embrace the art life in David’s MasterClass and learn to test the boundaries of your own artistic expression in any medium.
I'm so moved and affected by the opportunity to learn from Mr. Lynch...I appreciate his attitude and approach to the "Art Life" A true Master
From David's class my main takeaway would probably be to come up with solutions from restrictions since it can make ideas better. I would have never guessed that restrictions were a good thing if I had not taken this class just like how success can lead to second guessing while failure can lead to a better or perhaps more successful outcome.
This class is a helpful reminder on many psychological and social sides of making filmmaking. Lynch makes it very clear what are the basic principles behind a good, working film set. And it's a difficult lesson to put in practice, really, because life can get in the way. But serves as a good reminder.
I thought he had some very interesting incite on his approach to getting creative with him being an artist and filmmaker.
