Going further (...if that does sound like you) you’re likely an avid video consumer - online videos, features, tv shows, shorts - and nothing is more exciting to you than a well executed story. Us humans have told and valued good stories since the beginning of time and since the birth of video, it has been one of the most impactful ways to tell one.

  • Knowing your audience 
  • The 7 types of stories we tell
  • Finding YOUR story 
  • Crafting your story - Research & Writing!
  • Translating your story to video 
  • Building your War Chest - Picking the Right Video Mediums

Your Teacher: Dan Mace is a young, multi faceted, multi award winning film director. His journey kicked off in advertising where he directed a line of well acclaimed commercials and shorts. Leaving advertising in 2016 and moving into the online space, he experienced a meteoric ascent on Youtube to 700k+ subscribers over a period of 2 years. Dan’s work now lives primarily online. He is known for his incredibly high quality films and unique, impactful techniques when it comes to the art of storytelling. 

This class is perfect for aspiring filmmakers, directors, editors, cinematographers or anyone who is keen to take their video based storytelling to the next level. Even if you’re a beginner with no videos to speak of yet - if you want to start off on super strong footing - this class is for you too.

You’ll walk away from this class with a clear vision for your own videos using the method I've developed over the last decade of practice to great success. 

All you need for this class (besides a good story) is a basic understanding of camera gear and editing software like Premiere Pro.
