Free Lessons for 360 Mastery

To navigate the ever-evolving media landscape, I take a holistic 360-degree approach in my teaching and coaching, ensuring you have both the technical prowess and the mental fortitude needed for long-term success.

As a 360 Creative Coach, I’m dedicated to sharing the lessons and techniques that have shaped my own journey. These insights, gleaned from mentors and personal experience, are designed to simplify your creative path, so you can sidestep common pitfalls and accelerate your progress.

Explore over 1,000 episodes I’ve created, available for free across various platforms.

How-To Guides

Many would-be creative people I know begin their artistic journey with so much excitement, as they should, but as soon as they lack a certain skill-set they abandon their project. It’s very sad to see and so I never want to see you fall into that position. That is why I FREELY offer up the expertise I’ve gained along the way in multiple disciplines of the entertainment industry, which range from: storytelling, editing, Photoshop, website development, podcasting, sound design, pre-production planning, hosting, workflow management and organization, marketing and SEO, camera shooting formats and techniques, graphic design, live production, cross-platform publishing, streaming, lighting, recording methods, etc.
In this episode, I provide a mini tutorial on the macro concept of working with audio stems in film production. Learn how to use audio stems effectively to avoid having to do two mixes from scratch, allowing you to continue editing picture even after reaching "picture lock." This technique saves time, maintains consistency, and ensures a smoother post-production workflow.

In this episode, I discuss why having a solidified vision is crucial for any artist or content creator before diving into projects. I explain how a clear vision serves as a guiding star, preventing the waste of time and money—even when working with top-tier professionals. Without a defined vision, you risk misalignment, inefficiency, and potential frustration, regardless of the talent and resources at your disposal.

Join me as I share practical advice on how to develop and refine your vision, the impact it has on your creative journey, and real-world examples of how a strong vision can make or break a project. Whether you're a budding artist or an experienced creator, understanding the importance of vision will elevate your work and ensure that your efforts are always directed towards your ultimate goals.

Master Mental Fortitude

You can’t just rely on your technical skills as a creative. You must also master mental fortitude in order to achieve your creative endeavors otherwise you’ll end up working against yourself, burning out, depressed, or worse. I can speak to this firsthand which is why I’ve decided to stress the importance of fortifying your mind as well as your craftsmanship. The lessons here offer up my knowledge ranging from stoicism, essentialism, Toltec wisdom, Taoism, Buddhism, logo-therapy and other schools of thought and combine them with real world applications for your everyday life and art. Don’t make the same mistakes I did. Let these insights become your foundational pillars so you can find success in your work and personal life.
In this episode, I reflect on the overall drop in quality across various sectors, focusing on the entertainment and restaurant industries. Drawing from my own experiences, I delve into the reasons behind this decline—overworked staff, limited resources, terrible pay, and inadequate training. I explore how these factors contribute to a noticeable dip in the standards of movies, shows, and dining experiences we once cherished.

In this episode, I challenge the conventional view of productivity that often limits our potential and creativity. Inspired by a thought-provoking perspective shared on a recent episode of the Regenerative Spaces podcast, I delve into why our current understanding of productivity needs a significant overhaul.

Discover how focusing solely on traditional metrics—like hours worked or tasks completed—can hinder true progress and well-being. I explore alternative ways to measure productivity that encompass personal growth, mental health, and overall fulfillment.

In this episode, I make a compelling case for why writing fan fiction serves as an invaluable entry point into storytelling. Whether crafting a short story, novel, or script, fan fiction offers a unique advantage: familiar characters and worlds provide built-in guard rails, allowing writers to focus on honing their craft without the burden of creating everything from scratch.

Moreover, in today's IP-driven landscape, the ability to write for established characters and universes can open doors to exciting opportunities in professional writing. Even if not directly applicable, the experience gained from writing fan fiction helps sharpen narrative mechanics, character development, and world-building skills—essential elements of any successful story.

Join me as I explore the benefits of fan fiction as a creative outlet and discuss how it can serve as a springboard for aspiring writers to explore their storytelling potential. Whether you're a seasoned writer looking to expand your portfolio or a newcomer eager to dip your toes into the world of storytelling, this episode offers valuable insights and inspiration to fuel your creative journey.

In this thought-provoking episode, I delve into a common phenomenon: the misconception that when people ask for your opinion, they're genuinely seeking it. Instead, I argue that often, they're subconsciously seeking validation of their own beliefs. If your opinion aligns with theirs, it's accepted; if not, you're swiftly dismissed as "wrong."

But what if we approached conversations with more open-mindedness? What if we viewed differing opinions as opportunities for growth and learning rather than threats to our own beliefs? In this episode, I explore the benefits of embracing diverse perspectives, challenging our own assumptions, and cultivating a culture of respectful dialogue.

Join me as I unpack the psychology behind confirmation bias, share personal anecdotes, and offer practical tips for fostering open-minded conversations. Together, let's strive to create spaces where diverse viewpoints are valued, curiosity is encouraged, and genuine understanding flourishes.

In a world obsessed with scalability and growth, I'm here to challenge the notion that bigger is always better. Inspired by instances like ABC's Shark Tank, where investors often pass on businesses deemed "unscalable," I argue that there's immense value in maintaining a personalized, non-scalable approach to service.

For me, my value lies in my personal touch—I can charge more because clients know they're getting me, not just a product or service. They trust my expertise, my input, and my individualized attention. While scalability might promise higher earnings by expanding to more employees, it could also come at a cost—both in terms of money and time.

Instead of blindly chasing scalability and endless growth, let's be honest about what we truly aim to achieve. There are alternative paths to success that don't necessarily involve earning more money. By focusing on quality over quantity, fostering genuine connections with clients, and prioritizing work-life balance, we can create fulfilling, sustainable businesses that align with our values and goals.

Join me as I explore the overlooked benefits of non-scalability and advocate for a more nuanced approach to business success—one that values authenticity, integrity, and meaningful impact above all else.

While scalability might promise higher earnings by expanding to more employees, it could also come at a cost—both in terms of money and time.

Instead of blindly chasing scalability and endless growth, let's be honest about what we truly aim to achieve. There are alternative paths to success that don't necessarily involve earning more money. By focusing on quality over quantity, fostering genuine connections with clients, and prioritizing work-life balance, we can create fulfilling, sustainable businesses that align with our values and goals.

Join me as I explore the overlooked benefits of non-scalability and advocate for a more nuanced approach to business success—one that values authenticity, integrity, and meaningful impact above all else.

Step into the controversial world of Mike Black's Million Dollar Comeback project in this eye-opening episode, where I delve deeper into the nuances often overlooked by mainstream discussions. While the project garnered attention for its bold premise and apparent mission to inspire, I uncover both the pros and blind spots that Mike seems to ignore.

From draining his bank account and almost sleeping on benches to navigating the highs and lows of entrepreneurship, Mike's journey is nothing short of remarkable. However, as we peel back the layers, I confront uncomfortable truths about the complexities of inspiration versus reality.

Whether you're familiar with Mike Black's project or hearing about it for the first time, this episode offers a deeper understanding of the complexities surrounding the blurred lines between content creation and social responsibility. Tune in to uncover the untold story behind the headlines and join the conversation about authenticity, empathy, and accountability in the digital age.

Nisa Ahmad is a Hollywood producer and a dear friend. Recently, she went viral with a TikTok (https://www.tiktok.com/@prettyrabid/video/7222066189420334379) that examined how the recession affect people's grocery shopping habits. I thought it was a very different perspective than what others were sharing, yet so obvious in hindsight. That's what makes great art (and artists) though—the ability to observe the word. Using this as a jumping off point, we discuss many topics including the state of Hollywood and its history of strikes, artificial intelligence, the OceanGate submarine incident and the great trends we should be aware of, etc. So check out this episode and please share your thoughts down in the comment section or hit me up on social media @PhilSvitek.

If you follow me, you know it's no secret that I LOVE Amazon Prime's Undone. It's an incredible show on every level that simply can't help but move you—it's that touchingly powerful. In short, it's about Alma who nearly dies in a car accident and then finds that she has a new relationship with time; she develops this newfound relationship to find out the truth about her father's death. 

One of the reasons the show is so fantastic is because of the rotoscope animation style. The other, phenomenal acting. Both overseen by series director Hisko Hulsing (@HiskoHulsing). He graciously agreed to join me and chat about the inner workings of the show. So check out this episode and please share your thoughts down in the comment section or hit me up on social media @PhilSvitek. 

And, if you're curious to learn more about how the show is made or what it's all about, here's videos that I've enjoyed watching:

Hisko Hulsing (Director of Amazon Prime's Undone) Interview

If you follow me, you know it's no secret that I LOVE Amazon Prime's Undone. It's an incredible show on every level that simply can't help but move you—it's that touchingly powerful. In short, it's about Alma who nearly dies in a car accident and then finds that she has a new relationship with time; she develops this newfound relationship to find out the truth about her father's death.

One of the reasons the show is so fantastic is because of the rotoscope animation style. The other, phenomenal acting. Both overseen by series director Hisko Hulsing (@HiskoHulsing). He graciously agreed to join me and chat about the inner workings of the show. So check out this episode and please share your thoughts down in the comment section or hit me up on social media @PhilSvitek.

And, if you're curious to learn more about how the show is made or what it's all about, here's videos that I've enjoyed watching:
