AFW launched Max video courses in 2020. Then I got derailed during 2020 [um, who didn't?] and postponed release of video courses following the first release, Dynamic Writing, until 2021.

2021 video courses will start release in 2021 shortly.

If you have watched a video course and have follow up questions or want to discuss, this is the spot to do it. Also this is the place to ask questions about upcoming 2021 video courses.

All the video courses are listed on the main courses page at present and Dynamic Writing is online (yay!) and available now.

I completed Dynamic Writing (going to review), and it was stellar. Is Mastering Story Momentum similar except addressing the narrative drive of the story? Ty.

@h I am so glad you enjoyed it. Do I have reviews enabled for video classes? A review would be very cool if they are enabled. My head is still a bit spun out from some of the design work around here and I do not know if that is on or not. Let me know and I will go in and enable reviews if they are not on.

Mastering Story Momentum is different. Dynamic and Visual Writing are about creating visuals and motion on the page to strengthen impressions of the film or pilot for readers. If they can see a movie, they can buy a "the movie." If they cannot, they generally will not.

Mastering Story Momentum is a different animal. Momentum is a structure class. It is not about making things visual or dynamic on the page. It is about structuring scenes, sequences, and acts to build momentum and to sustain rising narrative dramatic story tension throughout the script toward a strong climax. It is all about structure and narrative dramatic tension.

I'm so glad you enjoyed Dynamic. Very cool.

@h I went and checked and reviews were not turned on yet. I activated those and if you hit the course in your "my classes" link, you will see the spot to post reviews.

Thank you so much. I appreciate the review.

Haha, @seemaxrun. I meant that I am going to review the content so that I get an even better grasp of it (not leave a review, though that is a terrific idea). Thank you for clarifying what Mastering Story Momentum is about. It sounds terrific. Thank you!

Oops. You are welcome and might I suggest you post a course review too? (smile)

@seemaxrun Hahaha. Yaaaas! Done. PS. It would be great if you made a script notes/screenplay analysis course for screenwriters. Ty. 🙂

@h Very cool. Thank you for the review. It's up! 

I will keep the reviewing course idea on file. Right now the emphasis is on current online courses and on finishing and releasing scheduled 2021 video courses — after that I can start looking at new course creation.

@seemaxrun You are welcome for the review. That class was outstanding! I totally understand your need to finish the videos for the current course curriculum. I will be excited to take the Mastering Story Momentum course. Cheers.

Ah, and while we are speaking of reviews, now that reviews are live, @curtis and @lorie I would love reviews from you if you have finished the Dynamic Writing video course and enjoyed it.

I'm looking at new microphones (again) for the clips. Collar mics are just not close enough to my mouth to maintain strong enough volume — also the ones I have are wired and I fight with the wires a lot. So I am looking at head set wireless mics. Part of me wonders if that's going to look weird on camera. Part of me thinks, if it'll get the volume up and I can stop talking into my collar and mud wrestling wires every time I need to break this is a really good idea.

@seemaxrun I wonder if a good boom mic out of frame would work.

I'm trying to keep production costs reasonable.

@seemaxrun Have you thought about a snowball or similar mic like the solopreneur content creators use? Some of them are super high quality in terms of audio captured:  https://www.amazon.com/Blue-Snowball-Microphone-Textured-White/dp/B000EOPQ7E

Ps. You could likely get something for $50 or so.

Pps. The blue yeti is spendier yet has neat accessories like a boom arm:
