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 work with independent films, and music in Brazil, and the Spike Lee Masterclass it was really helpfull, and very interesting because it brought many practical ideas and important thoughts that a young director needs to have as well as many of his responsibilities. He is a great person!
Spike is awesome. He tells it like it is, no sugarcoating. He gets into the nuts and bolts of filmmaking and his enthusiasm for his craft comes shining through!
