For Spike, the take is a sacred moment. Learn his rules for managing your crew and running a set effectively in order to deliver the best possible takes.
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 liked some of his movies, but I wouldn't imagine he'll become one of my favorites. Respect for this man and his work!
Mr. Lee, thank you for the detailed, thoughtful and heart felt MasterClasss. I appreciate the personal touches you have used to enrich and challenge the audience. Your films have so much heart, diversity and the message that we are all in this together.
Spike Lee has given me invaluable advice about the industry, the craft and the life. He is very generous in his information, and thank him.
