FYI: Mira Nair, the director of Monsoon Wedding and The Namesake, has just released an online masterclass on independent filmmaking. In 17 video lessons, the Oscar-nominated director teaches students how to “make a big impact on a small budget, evoke the best from actors and non-actors, and protect your creative vision so you tell the story that can only come from you.” Nair’s course runs $90. But for $180, you can get an All-Access Pass to Masterclass’ catalogue of 45 courses, which includes courses by a number of other prominent filmmakers–Martin Scorsese, Spike Lee, Ken Burns, Ron Howard, Werner Herzog and more. Not to mention actors and actresses like Samuel L. Jackson and Helen Mirren.
