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 spoke in a very relatable tone. I like his humble approach to teaching his techniques. You can tell he is a very passionate film maker.
This was amazing! Real experiences shared, tips and examples from feature films. The approach was fresh, unique, intelligent, creative and beautiful!
Excellent Masterclass from Spike Lee. Inspiring, educative and funny. I hope I can incorporate what Spike said to my filmmaking. Looking forward to make my film soon. Thank you Spike. My pranams and namaskaram from India.
THE MOBILE APP IS WEIRD. iT JUMPS AROUND AND IS ERRATIC AS TO WHERE YOU LEFT IT LAST WHEN RETURNING. aLSO IT IS CONFUSING with regard to playing the current video but then having the description and title of the next video directly underneath the current video before listing the previews of the next videos. the current video needs to have some kind of identifier rather than being purely visual.
