Martin Scorsese to Teach His First Online Course on Filmmaking

FYI: If you sign up for a Mas­ter­Class course by click­ing on the affil­i­ate links in this post, Open Cul­ture will receive a small fee that helps sup­port our oper­a­tion.

If you need to make movies, if you feel like you can’t rest until you’ve told this par­tic­u­lar sto­ry that you’re burn­ing to tell, then Mar­tin Scors­ese has a course for you. Through Mas­ter­Class, the direc­tor of Good­fel­las, Rag­ing Bull, Taxi Dri­ver, and Mean Streets is now set to teach his first online course. Accord­ing to the video trail­er above, Scors­ese will explore in 20+ lessons every­thing from cin­e­matog­ra­phy and edit­ing, to work­ing with actors, on-set direct­ing, and devel­op­ing a per­son­al film­mak­ing style. The $90 course won’t be released until ear­ly 2018, but any­one who pre-enrolls now will get ear­ly access to the class.

While you wait, you can also take Wern­er Her­zog’s own course on film­mak­ing (also offered through Mas­ter­Class). Or explore Scors­ese’s lists of rec­om­mend­ed films that we’ve pre­vi­ous­ly fea­tured here on Open Cul­ture. Find them in the Relat­eds right below.
