Get your creative projects out of your head and into the world.
For as long as you can remember, you’ve dreamt about starting your own creative project. Maybe it’s a film or a podcast, a YouTube channel, or even a book. Perhaps it’s getting clear on your creative purpose or finding what makes your business unique. You have a few ideas written down. You’ve read a few books and even devoured everything you possibly could on YouTube. But you don’t have a lot to show for your effort, and you’re no closer to your goal. That’s because you need to transform your desire into consistent action with structure, discipline, and accountability.
Chris Martin Studios offers several workshops for a wide range of creatives to transform their ideas and interests into creative projects that matter.
Develop Your Podcast is a half-day workshop for aspiring podcasters that walks you through every step of the podcast development process. This workshop sets a solid and stable foundation for long-term success, from understanding who you are, what you want to talk about, who your audience is, the impact you want to make, and how your podcast connects to your personal and professional goals.
Unlock Your Creative Journey is an 8-week workshop for creative professionals and aspiring creators that defines your creative journey and maps out weekly quests to keep you moving toward your destination. With a weekly coaching session, you’ll meet with a guide keeping you on track and not journeying alone. Previous participants have discovered their unique voice, launched a YouTube channel, and written a creative manifesto.
Asking Better Questions is a half-day workshop for podcasters, documentary filmmakers, and coaches who want to reconnect with their curiosity so they connect with others at a deeper level. This workshop covers the types of questions that open people up and get them talking, the importance of listening, why sequence of questions matters, and much more.
Why Learn From Me?
An important component of my professional work is equipping and empowering other creative professionals, DIYers, entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations, and students in the technical and communication arts. For over seven years, I was an adjunct instructor at Clark College in Vancouver, WA and even received the college’s Exceptional Faculty Award in 2014. Doing this work has strengthened my abilities to create curriculum, connect with students, and coach them to set goals and achieve them.
Whether you are an individual looking for one-on-one instruction or a team of 10 (or more) needing to expand your abilities, I offer half-day and full-day workshops in video production, video editing, podcasting, motion graphics, and professional and business-related practices.
I also love speaking to high school and college students about business, creativity, and filmmaking.
