Getting the most out of this course

This course is a workshop. It's not a sit back and just watch affair. It'll be a hands-on, throw-down, get moving type of course. Almost every movie will challenge you to not just learn the lesson but do the lesson. Often, you'll be asked to pause the movie, and I'll be challenging you with timed, creative exercises to help illustrate points. They're meant to be thought-provoking but fun. So give them your best efforts and you'll see your best results. Remember, there are no bad ideas here.

All of the exercises are meant to extract your interpretation of the exercise. You'll probably be laughing through many of them. And that's a good sign. Here's a list of things you'll need to get the most out of this course. It might be a good idea for you to get them ready right now. You'll need scratch paper, writing utensils, timer or stopwatch, random arts and crafts materials like Play-Doh or pipe cleaners, clothespins. Whatever you have on hand will do. Random office supplies, like rubber bands, paperclips, fasteners, thumb tacks.

Again, whatever you have on hand will do. While we'll be going through the exercises as needed throughout the course, you'll be able to find all of the exercises presented in a single document in the resources folder. Remember we learn most when we're doing rather than just seeing or hearing. And creativity is an active discipline. So take advantage of the opportunities to get your hands figuratively and sometimes literally dirty. It'll help you get the most out of this creative training workshop.
