By taking a look at the inter-cutting technique in BlacKkKlansman, Spike demonstrates how he was able to create heightened drama and tonal balance in pivotal scenes.
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.
Spike Lee may be the greatest indie filmmaker of all time, but more importantly, he speaks truth.
It was very imformative, I will be applying new skills to my work.
Wow! I'm truly amazed at all that I have studied and learned from this, I have 15 pages of notes and I wish this was longer so I can have 15 more pages! Spike Lee is a GENIUS! I am a female producer/director with only 3 films under my belt and this has given me the edge I need to continue on in a more more effective way! THANK YOU SPIKE LEE AND MASTERCLASS!!!!
I found myself having to write a script for the first time ever and this class gave me the need to know.
