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.
All my life I have enjoyed Mr. Scorsese's work. So many of my favorite films are his work. This class was an incredible experience.
Listening to Mr Scorcese's anecdotes on film and his life in it were inspiring. His level of humility in his own process was only out shined by his knowledge for cinema and the love for it as a pure art. I hope to one day know a third of what he does. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and passion. It's time to go to work!
I'm starting to see a pattern among the Masterclass Instructors. Each one of them have said in so-many words that there is no set way to success in arts.
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.
