Tictocmind Story Hub – Become a filmmaker and digital content producer

An immersion course

Our Story Hub is where we train you to become a cutting edge story content producer.

We are creating a unique documentary format that caters to the 21st Century audience that seeks well-told, eye-opening on-the-go stories. Welcome to the “5-to-7” genre.

Filmmakers will learn how to script, shoot and produce films and documentaries with the greatest impact. The 5-7 minutes reel is our special brand.

Starting with Baltimore, our goal is to train a core team of storymakers who will contribute to the catalogue of Tictocmind 5-to-7s or run their own business as digital content providers and filmmakers. Tictocmind will sign up filmmakers who can independently contribute to this new genre. We aim to edge out stereotype narratives that unfavorably define a people.

Tictocmind will teach you the art of reimagining, producing and owning your own narratives.
