After searching for a long time this is the best course for storytelling. In every course i always find a 3 arch structure of story. But Colin & Samir explain the part before the story (audience) and the structure and mindset to built a story.

Great information

I started a YT channel last year and I wish I had watched this before I started. Thank you for making storytelling understandable, I like the Jenga example that was used.

Justin McDonough

Easily one of the most valuable online courses out there.

There is so much information packaged in such an accessible way in this lesson. This is a no brainer for me to recommend to anyone!

Do I really have to say anything?

Just buy the damn course. If you think they can entertain you with a video and make you want to share it in this course you're gonna learn exactly how they do it and how much they actually know about youtube and storytelling. By the end of the course, you're surely gonna be making better videos and telling better stories

Blew my mind

This course has given me insight into how I want to establish my business. I've feared being behind the camera but understand the importance of telling a story. I've started to use the exercises in other aspects of my workflow and have seen great results.

So worth it!

I wasn't expecting to be this good. But boy, Colin and Samir along the moment team went above and beyond! Not only the course is engaging an entertaining but it also gives you a lot of external sources to watch and a storytelling guide to go along with the course (extremely useful). I learned a bunch with this course. It has helped me to organize my thought and ideas for future videos. I strongly suggest this course! Thank you Colin and Samir! and congrats moment team for putting this together! Very well done! Much love, @PlanetPrince

I've Been Doing It All Wrong... Until Now!

This lesson was just what I needed to level up my storytelling abilities. Colin and Samir did a great job breaking down their process in a simple and captivating way. You can't help but what to start creating your own stories after watching this lesson. Thank you Moment and thank you Colin and Samir!

Great Creators Make A Great Lesson

I’ve been a longtime sub of Colin and Samir and was hyped when they dropped a class with Moment. There are some solid techniques to help you nail your videos, but there’s also a ton more. The class is going to be continually updated over the next couple of months and there’s a great community Slack channel to brainstorm/workshop with other creatives.
