Spike discusses the filmmaker’s responsibility to bring diversity to the film industry—both on screen and behind the 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.
There is no creator more prolific in my opinion. His course covers all ends of the spectrum.
This is one class that I really wanted to do. I knew this one would be very interesting. Above all, Spike says it like it really is, which I liked. There was some good advice about music.
This course gave me confidence, technique, inspiration and truth - shot through with humor.
I'm not a film maker, but I appreciate the way he tells it like it is. I didn't expect to enjoy his class as much as I did. He brought a great deal of truth, insight, and wisdom to what he was saying.
