What’s Inside?

Inside the Project Organizer, you’ll find links to a variety of resources, tips, and curated information for each step of the video-making process. The organizer is set up like a notebook, so you can easily switch between different steps and reference what you’ve already done, like going back to your outline and research as you write your script.
