Creative storytelling with stock video, a new class from Skillshare and Dissolve
We’ve always loved Skillshare as our go-to for learning from the pros about typography, design, and of course working with video. Now we’ve teamed up with them on a free class about creative storytelling with stock video.

- editing them to tell an awesome story
Perfect for video newbies, brand marketers, and burgeoning visual storytellers.
