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 initially wanted to watch this specific class because I am a HUGE Spike Lee fan, and I know his words and experiences are valuable. This class has inspired me. I began writing my first script yesterday at 1 am. Thank you Spike!
