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 is real! This is some hard shit!,,
I just wanted to get an overview on how films are made. I'm a writer. I can see there's much work involved with developing a film, screenplay etc. This class was very interesting.
Spike Lee's lessons were highly entertaining and highlighted some great points.
Thank you! What a wonderful and intimate look into film making!
