Well, that's the end of my MasterClass. And I want to go back to where we began and say, once again, that you have to find your own way. I mean, there are no manuals, no shortcuts, no secrets. You write your own manual. You develop your own shortcuts. You find your own secrets. You go where you're drawn to go and you learn by doing the work. I mean, if you're scared, if it all seems too daunting, if the machinery of it all seems too big and scary and overwhelming, that's great. You wake up in the morning and you do it anyway. If it seems impossible, that's even better. You do it anyway. And as you go, like I said, remember that amidst all that machinery, you're the one who's going to make the picture. It's just you and the thing that sparked you to make the film. You and the spark-- in the end, they're one and the same. You guard that, because it's precious. Now it's time to get to work.

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.
Great class. Very motivational. I was pretty inspired by some of the themes that this class showed insight on. Despacito 2.
Very interesting to hear this story. Not to applicable to me personally. I sometimes didnt follow when he was explaining things, could have been a bit clearer. But overall, very good!
Just do it! Do it your own way. Learn the grammar of film, learn from other filmmakers and how they've been successful (or failed). But, in the end, do it and keep doing it. Find the people you can trust to work with, that's so important. Work with them again and again.
One of the most inspiring experiences I have ever had in art itself. I could not believe how intimate the lessons were in regard to his process, hopes, and failures. I'm an actor and have always wanted to make a movie on my own, and now I believe I have the tools to do so.
