This closing weekend of SF3 Online, we are offering a very special online masterclass. “Going Viral” with Jason van Genderen! Tickets are pay-what-you-can and its only available from Friday 23rd at 6pm to Sunday 25th midnight AEST.…/play/5f54717da5f0ae004dbeb7df
In April 2020 (during Coronavirus lockdown), Jason van Genderen experienced something pretty astounding. A video story he captured at home went viral – during the pandemic. But Jason did something very remarkable… he turned on his iPhone and documented the whole journey of going viral, analysing the key triggers and milestones, then repeated the exercise whilst creating this course, for your education! In less than 3 months his videos have been seen over 37,000,000 times.
Jason has been interviewed and celebrated on some of the world’s biggest shows, including The Late Late Show with James Corden and Good Morning America. This course is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to understand the drivers behind content that goes viral and will give you an opportunity to rapidly scale the video views you can achieve online too.
