“The wrong actors, the wrong roles could turn out the wrong movie.” Spike shares his tips for successful casting and his experiences casting some of his most infamous roles.
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.
Good to hear his experience it help us lot to improve our film making process thank you
As I dabble with the film making medium, I found this to be very insightful. I admired Spike Lee prior, now I admire him more.
An amazing sharing from a Master! Thank you Spike you have both educated and inspired me on my road this year to make my first documentary and movie. Invaluable learning. Thank you
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.
