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.
I finished Spike Lee's class empowered, encouraged, ennobled and ready to kick ass. That's a hard thing for a teacher to accomplish these days.
This was my first Master Class, I knew I wanted to start with Spike, and I found it really easy to follow the lessons. I loved the work books, It helped me digest the material. This is a great tool for artists.
This was amazing! Real experiences shared, tips and examples from feature films. The approach was fresh, unique, intelligent, creative and beautiful!
I'm so happy I could hear the journey that made Spike Lee who he is today. He's a great teacher and shares from the heart. Thank you.
