Intro - Who We Are and Why You’re Here
Who are Colin and Samir? To kick it off, you'll meet your instructors and learn why your concept for a video is paramount. You can’t steer a bike that isn’t moving; the same applies to creativity. Your instructors will take you through creative exercise to get your juices flowing. Brainstorm incoming.
Who's your audience and why should they care about your work? Once you know who your audience is, it’s time to refine the picture. In this segment, Colin and Samir lead you through exercising emotions and identities.
You’ll learn how to develop an idea with drive. Learn how to craft an award-winning concept that will carry your video to success. Discovering your “why” is what gives your video purpose.

Colin and Samir cover the "grassroots approach" to finding your audience, and how to use the feedback loop of the film, edit, upload, repeat cycle.
