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.
This class was absolutely incredible, and the thing I needed. It helped me improve in so many ways to convince me to continue my own journey into Filmmaking, and I have learned things I never thought I would have known... Through only 30 Assignments. It was an honor to take this class.
This has been an amazing masterclass. Film making always seemed scary and so far to reach that it seemed impossible. Yes, there's a lot of technical stuff to learn, but what Mr Scorsese has reminded me is that the most important element in making a truthful film is me. That is the most important lesson in this masterclass.
I learned a lot from this Master Class...amazing man and great teacher. Thank you so much!
This class has both inspired and taught me how to use appreciation of film within making motion pictures. I have learned how to use my spark within me to create film, which has been my desire since I was a little kid.
