  1. The numbers thing was great! Both in the value it gave and for increasing the time your audience spends watching the video

  2. Good steps/tips there, thanks. But this is not a script IMO, it's steps. I got here by looking for "how to script"… a movie script and the hero's journey is not the same either.
