In the entertainment industry, a "green room" is an area backstage where artists and performers can relax and hang out when they're not on stage. Not just anyone has access to the green room either - it's a special place for people who are doing great things, offering of themselves and their creativity to the world.
I love that idea when applied to us as creators - The Green Room at Story Greenlight is a place to connect and learn, but also a place to help you GET. STUFF. DONE.
Not just anyone can both do AND teach. I do both.
I built my career over the last 20 years as a broadcast television editor in Los Angeles. I’ve helped shape content for ABC, NBC, Universal, Disney, Apple, and many others.
I’m the author of Edit Better: Hollywood-Tested Strategies for Powerful Video Editing, and I’ve appeared in the USA Today, Time Magazine, The Associated Press, and multiple textbooks.
For over a decade now, I’ve been coaching and mentoring creative people through online businesses that have served students in over 40 countries through 6 different continents.
Through my work here at Story Greenlight, I coach and consult YouTube creators with followings under 1,000 all the way to many millions.

"The response that I've gotten from my viewers has just been stellar. Instead of getting comments like "Hey man, that was cool to watch, I'm getting comments like "Man, your videos aren't just about making cool stuff. They're about making a better life." You just can't buy that kind of connection."

"Jeff knows how to attract interesting and creative people to himself. It's been nice to have people that I can turn to and I can say, "How do you think I should apply this?" And they know exactly what I mean."
THOMAS ALEXANDER, Esperanto Variety Show
"Without the Green Room, I don't think that I would still feel as hopeful and as optimistic about YouTube. It's the only group that I've ever been able to find where you actually get great feedback from people who want to see you succeed just as much as they want to succeed themselves."
STEFANIE HINTON, Milo & Stefanie Do FL
"Since becoming part of The Green Room, I feel like I'm part of something more than just me trying to do this all on my own. It's just been a really great experience."
