Below, you can catch Seth being interviewed by Ryan Connolly on Film Riot about the Storyclock methodology and how it all came together for him while watching Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade (Yes, Seth is obsessed with Indiana Jones if you haven’t caught that at this point). Check it out to learn more about the genesis of how this product came to be (for Seth’s own selfish desires) and why we created it to be “for education and application” (thanks Ryan for the perfect articulation of those two end goals).
That said, thank YOU for helping us achieve our greatest dreams/making Seth’s selfish desires come true! The Storyclock Notebook WILL be made! As of this last hour, we’ve surpassed 100K! If you haven’t backed us yet, you’ve got less than 48 hours to join the bandwagonand keep sharing with your friends. Thanks for supporting us the last 28 days and we’re looking forward to finishing strong.
