Spike Lee didn’t just direct his award-winning 1986 feature debut, She’s Gotta Have It. He was also the writer, star, truck driver, location scout, electrician, and caterer, because that’s what it took to get his film made. In his first-ever online directing class, the visionary behind Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X, and 25th Hour lets you in on his uncompromising approach to filmmaking. Learn about writing, self-producing, working with actors, and making movies that break barriers.
Thank you very much for this class. I'm going to work on all information I received
It has made me not be afraid to approach doing film as an Indie Film Director and to allow myself the freedom to explore.
I love Spike Lee and I was waiting for this masterclass so long. It was definitely very interesting, but I feel like it was way too short, I'm sure Spike was able to speak more. :)
Spike Lee is real! This is some hard shit!,,
