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've learned a lot about all the different facets of making a film and I plan to apply it to my next project.
I initially wanted to watch this specific class because I am a HUGE Spike Lee fan, and I know his words and experiences are valuable. This class has inspired me. I began writing my first script yesterday at 1 am. Thank you Spike!
Good to hear his experience it help us lot to improve our film making process thank you
I love the way Spike gave practical advise. So far my favorite.
