Spike walks you through the iconic camera angles and techniques that have come to define his visual style. Then, he breaks down how he uses each to increase tension and heighten the drama.
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.
it certainly helped and inspired to make my first steps towards making my first feature film project. thank you very much Spike LEE
This is one class that I really wanted to do. I knew this one would be very interesting. Above all, Spike says it like it really is, which I liked. There was some good advice about music.
Opened my mind to the world of film making in a funny and entertaining way.
Short, direct, and with a touch of humor. Amazing knowledge from an amazing director.
