How to make an impact with your film part two continues on from part one where we talked about the genre of film making that I'm a part of and a little of my story of how I got involved with social impact entertainment. In this episode we dive deep, like nerdy deep into how compelling stories create impact in the world. I hope that by learning about HOW compelling stories create change it will motivate you and give you confidence...and direction on how to create stories that are entertaining AND create change.
