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 leaned so much from Spike that it's up to me now to make it happen. I wish he would've demonstrated it in this lecture how he actual direct live
This class was everything I expected and more, I only . wish it was longer. There is so much of Spike's work that was so profound that I wanted him to speak on. I was hoping there would be a whole video just on the dolly shots lol but I loved it. I am about to start from the beginning again!
Spike Lee's style as a persona is jazzy. He covers ground authoritatively. He's got some indy tricks too. He knows where the treasure lies buried.
So MUCH information. So MUCH knowledge. Love Love Love Mr. Spikes laugh. HIS confidence gave ME confidence. In love with this one. Took some great notes and have already started implementing them. Brilliance!
