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.
An excellent Masterclass. Spike is a passionate and driven film maker with an emphasis on social commentary. His enthusiasm is contagious.
Amazing! I would certainly recommend to anyone wanting to get into film!
Thank you Spike, with respect and appreciate, I will carry on.
It's amazing to hear Spike walk through the process from Script to Screen. His insight is challenging and pushed me revisit my work with fresh (more knowledgable) eyes.
