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.
Learned so much. The responsibilities of the filmmaker and what is needed to 'actualize' those responsibilities - actualization impelled by an irrevocable passion.
it was fascinating to hear how he approaches his movies. How the different departments add to his overall vision. This gave me new perspective on how each piece comes together to make a better whole.
All the masterclasses thus far have been brilliant Mamet; Atwood; Sorkin, but this was in a league of its own. Thank you Martin!
Some of the lessons could have been longer, with more examples and/or detail.
