Instructor Biography

Paul Jenkins, Film Director & STORYOPTIC.com Chief

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 online business owner.

In my courses, you'll get insights, strategies and tactics that I've developed over 20+ years while making films for the world's top broadcasters (BBC, PBS, ARTE etc), and concurrently over the past 3 years as an 'edupreneur'.

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!

Paul
