DISCOVER HOW TO FIND YOUR CREATIVE VOICE AND TELL BETTER STORIES ON YOUTUBE

Experience a one-of-a-kind, multi-week virtual workshop built to help YouTube creators like YOU take your creative video editing and storytelling skills to the next level.




If you’ve ever:

  • Felt limited or stuck in the video editing process
  • Felt like your content is dry or boring and haven’t known how to fix it
  • Wondered how to come up with creative ideas
  • Struggled with adding elements of story into your content
  • Wondered if you “don’t know what you don’t know” about storytelling
  • Wondered how to make your audience care about your content and keep coming back for more


Then I have good news:

IT'S NOT JUST YOU.

Most creators struggle with these things. They may not be able to put their finger on exactly what the problem is, and even if they can, they usually don’t tell anyone.

Because God forbid we admit that we have questions when everyone else seems like they have their act together.

Depressing, right?

JUST IMAGINE...


  • Knowing WHY things work instead of just stumbling across something that you don't know how to repeat.
  • Having the creative skills to execute ideas in a compelling, memorable way.
  • Having a rock solid solution to tell great stories every single time.
  • Supercharging your editing, productivity, and creative growth in ways that you could never have found otherwise.
  • Seeing your YouTube channel with higher watch times, higher retention rates, and higher income from an audience who loves you.
     


And imagine seeing this happen for you with guidance from a working Hollywood professional who both shapes content for massive media companies like Universal, Apple, and Disney… but actually knows what it’s like to create for YouTube because he’s doing that too.


THIS CAN ALL HAPPEN FOR YOU.


AND YOU WON'T HAVE TO:

  • Pay insane amounts of money for years of film school where people look down their nose at you, laugh at your content, and say you’ll never be good enough.
  • Stand in huge lines at the airport, sit on a cramped plane, pay for an expensive hotel, and sit in conference sessions that don’t actually deliver what you want to know.
  • Spend years of your life banging your head against the wall after yet another rambling YouTube video doesn't answer your question... or that leaves you with more questions than answers.

“Jeff’s advice and insights have been huge for my team. I’m always looking to improve the storytelling and editing on my content, and his input has taken our projects to a whole new level.

UNLOCK YOUR CREATIVITY AND STORYTELLING SKILLS WITH THE CREATIVE EDIT


The Creative Edit (TCE) is a 4-week virtual workshop built around expert mentorship and creative community to help you build your creative editing and storytelling skills and an unbreakable bond with your audience. This means more creative satisfaction for you as a creator, plus more views, subscribers, and income as your impact as a creator spreads in the world.


WHO IS TCE FOR?

TCE is designed for solo YouTube creators of both story-driven and non-story-driven content (tutorials, educational, DIY etc.), focusing on channels with subscriber counts from 0 to 1,000. Though if your crowd is larger, don't worry - Jeff has applied these ideas to both primetime television shows AND YouTube creators with followings in the millions.


WHEN DOES TCE HAPPEN? 

60-minute sessions on Saturday, June 22 through July 20, 2019, skipping July 6. Start time is 11am Pacific Time.

That's 11am in LA & Vancouver, 2pm in NYC & Toronto, 7pm in London, and 4am Sunday in Sydney.

FOR BEST GROUP DYNAMICS, TCE IS LIMITED TO 20 CREATORS ONLY. SECURE YOUR POSITION WHILE SPOTS ARE STILL AVAILABLE.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS

  • Group Video Calls

    Each Saturday, The Creative Edit cohort meets virtually with Jeff Bartsch for a 60-minute group video call to review existing projects, discuss new ideas, and assign new exercises.

  • Weekly Editing Exercises

    Cohort members work with their own computer and software. Sometimes exercises involve a creator's own footage, which gives the group insight into a diverse range of material. Members also edit footage supplied by Jeff – this gives incredibly unique perspective into how different creators edit the same material.

  • Exploration & Feedback

    Cohort members engage the concepts editorially during the week while interacting in a private forum for support from each other and from Jeff.

“I’ve been adding more story to my videos, and engagement has gone through the roof! I truly appreciate all the things I’m learning from you, and my comments are reflecting that my viewers notice the increase in quality of editing too. Thank you!”

ABOUT JEFF BARTSCH


In his nearly 20 years in Hollywood, Jeff has contributed to thousands of hours of finished television for ABC, NBC, Apple, Universal, Disney, ESPN, MTV, and many others. The author of Edit Better: Hollywood-Tested Strategies for Powerful Video Editing, Jeff brings a unique blend of expertise as a high-end creative and teacher... in addition to being an active YouTube creator at StoryGreenlight.com.

Jeff has consulted with YouTube creators with subscribers ranging from 0 to well over a million, plus advised executives of websites with millions of views every month. 

The Creative Edit originally began as a small-group coaching experience led by Jeff with students seeking to be full-time professional TV editors in Los Angeles and New York. Jeff has blended the elements of that original coaching track together with his first-hand knowledge of YouTube creation for an experience that literally does not exist anywhere else. 


HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:

  • SESSION 1, JUNE 22: The Big Picture and Shaping Attention. Learn how to demystify creativity (yes, it's possible). Distinguish the multiple hats we wear as creators without even knowing it. And learn how to guide the audience's attention to the things we want them to see and remember.

  • SESSION 2, JUNE 29: Shaping Emotion and Music. Learn why the way people FEEL is more important that what they THINK. Find out how to amplify the core of what's already in place in your content, and how to stand out from everyone else.

  • SESSION 3, JULY 13: Shaping Meaning and Story. Dig into what’s actually driving the impact of your pieces. Discover how to add more meaning and a framework for making that happen, plus which parts of the framework matter most, and why.

  • SESSION 4, JULY 20: Shaping Style, Open Q&A. Defining your own editing style, and how to shape it in a way that works for you. Plus anything else on your mind.

“Jeff is a master at helping YouTubers tell stories, and anyone who wants to grow as a YouTuber should pay attention to what he’s saying. I’m a huge fan!”

FAQs

  • What makes this different from all the other online courses out there?

    1. This is not a course – it's an experience. This isn’t about “how to succeed on YouTube” – plenty of people teach that. This is about “how to make your mark in the world with compelling content… and here are specific tools to make that happen for you right NOW."
    2. Perspective – you get to see the inside process of creation on widely varying content... PLUS you get to see the results of multiple creators engaging and shaping the same footage. Nobody ever gets to even see this, never mind do it and talk about it.
    3. The teacher – it's incredibly rare to have an active Hollywood professional who is also an active YouTube creator AND an accomplished mentor and teacher. Jeff is here to see you change the way you create content.

  • How experienced do cohort members need to be?

    The ideas in TCE always bring powerful new perspective to beginners and well-established creators alike, and each round of TCE brings a completely different experience based on who participates. Having said that, we don’t talk much about the technical/button-pushing side of editing – so it’s important that you already are familiar with shooting and editing with your own equipment.

  • Will this teach me how to use editing software?

    No. While Jeff will use Adobe Premiere for demonstrations, TCE specifically avoids focusing on talking about which buttons to push or which editing program to use. You get to use your own equipment and your own software, so we can all focus on the most important parts of editing - the parts that happen in your mind.

  • What if I'm not actively creating yet?

    If you don't know how to shoot and edit at all, TCE is not a good fit for you. But if you're looking for insight and guidance as you start your channel, then you ESPECIALLY should join TCE to get you into the mode of actually putting content together. You don’t have to put it up on your channel – just put yourself in the position to actually complete some content and to keep that momentum rolling forward.

  • What if I miss a session?

    All sessions will be recorded, and you'll have 24/7 access to the private members forum.

  • What is your refund policy?

    It's kind of nuts, actually... you can go through the entire experience and STILL get a 100% refund up to 24 hours after the final session. You have everything to gain and zero to lose.

  • What if I have other questions?

    Shoot an email to support@storygreenlight.com and ask away!
