Creativity is something we often take for granted, yet a deeper understanding of how to organise it provides an enormous boost to our creativity and creative production.
By taking this course, you'll get your creativity organised and see a huge boost in your overall creativity and productivity!
As a filmmaker, I've had to dive deep into all manner of techniques and tools over the years to keep myself and teams organised, provoke creativity in myself and others, marshal disparate ideas and flashes of inspiration into sequences that make sense and are productive and keep a creative workflow humming smoothly to enable the best possible publication and sharing of Ideas That Matter (as Seth Godin would say).
Now, you can benefit from these creativity insights and knowledge.
The course essentially divides into two halves: A Creative Method and the Tools to Get the Job Done.
Though the tool recommendations are based around the Mac platform, you'll find PC versions or equivalents for almost all of them available. Therefore, if you are a PC/Windows user, don't worry - you'll still get great benefit out of this course.
The lessons on Creative Approach and Method are cross-platform.
The course is designed to be of use to a wide spectrum of creatives and those who might think go themselves as non-creative (even though you really are!). You won't need to have any foreknowledge or specialised glossary to understand the lessons inside this course.
The course should not take you more than 3 hours to complete, and at the end of it you will have a very good understanding of how to significantly boost your own creativity and creative accomplishments.
Effective and creative storytelling is an essential part of success in many walks of life - and fun when you do it right, because you feel the 'flow'.
Film and video techniques and visual storytelling can add much to your overall creative output, and be highly satisfying and impactful arts in their own right.
The techniques I teach, I use daily as a professional documentary film director and author.
In my courses, you'll get insights, strategies and working methods that I've developed over 20+ years while making films for the world's top broadcasters (BBC, PBS, ARTE etc). These days, I also make film trailers and corporate films.
My teaching style is to guide you through the processes that matter - explaining why they matter - in a personal, 'fireside' fashion.
You also get direct access to me through the Discussion area of each course. This means that any challenges or questions you have can be resolved directly.
I'm very open to feedback, therefore please feel free to feed ideas for lectures and courses to me and I'll do my very best to accommodate.
See you inside the courses!
