How is this Raw Creativity session different than our others ?
Our other Raw Creativity sessions focus on identifying and clarifying your vision and style. This workshop focuses on producing a project that demonstrates both. We’ll strengthen your personal project by identifying new possibilities and best practices and then teach you the techniques you need to arrive at optimal solutions.
This workshop is about execution. It’s best for people who have a clear idea of where they’re going, what they want to produce, why they want to produce it, and now want to find and practice optimum ways to finish a project. Take this workshop and your personal project will be ready to release.
