Bad Training Wastes Money
Time is limited. Learner frustration is real.
You want something that engages learners, improves memory and retention, and changes behavior. But you can't afford to produce Hollywood-grade scenario films that entertain, or waste time choosing between ADDIE or SAM learning models and testing their effectiveness. Why suffer through all that work, only to find it lands flat for your audience? We are filmmakers with an instructional design background.

Sage Academy combines compelling narrative films and video scenarios with seamless and intuitive instructional design. We provide the learning assets so you can focus on facilitating and engaging robust discussion with your team.

Storytelling Meets Neuroscience
Our brains are hardwired for story. We consume and share information in narrative forms, processing complex situations both rationally and emotionally. We also treat media socially; subconsciously, we think videos represent real life. Sage Academy integrates extensive cognitive science research to combine emotional, logical storytelling with a powerful video component.
Knowledge checks don't drive behavior change. Well-structure stories, however, provide logical and emotional arguments that do.
People communicate complex ideas nonverbally. Our unique visual language conveys important information, authentically – both consciously and subconsciously.
By allowing learners to fill in story gaps, they take ownership in the training experience – leading to better engagement, retention, and an actual change in behavior. They also have a lot of fun!
Fun. Beautiful. Effective.
Responsive. Nimble. Intuitive.
