Martin Scorsese drew his first storyboard when he was eight. Today he’s a legendary director whose films from Mean Streets to The Wolf of Wall Street have shaped movie history. In his first-ever online film class, the Oscar winner teaches his approach, from storytelling to editing to working with actors. He deconstructs films and breaks down his craft, changing how you make and watch movies.
You see a Scorsese film, you experience in many instances, real, harsh life. What I have learned listening and watching Scorsese is a man with compassion but determination to bring life stories to the screen. He is an artist who admires others art, and is constantly learning.
This one really achieved the goals that all these classes should. There's information for amateurs, pros, - for everyone here and it is well laid out and Scorcese is a brilliant and literate guy. Even the specifics he presents are relevant to everyone - part of that is the subject matter but still - one of the best on the site.
I absolutely loved just sitting and listening to the great Martin Scorsese tell stories about his various productions. I, myself, am more interested in writing than in film production, but I found this class to be incredibly insightful nonetheless.
Amazing talk but had trouble following for long periods of time. I love Scorsese's work but he is too brilliant to talk at my level. 😂
