Interactive TV Series: Mastertude teach apprentices music and the creed of a polymath.
The TV Series is primarily a sci-fi fantasy. Our protagonist Mu, an average guy suddenly finds his life drastically transformed, after he joins ‘the hood of Mastertude’, a mystery school similar to the Pythagorean order. Within the masters-world, Mu witnesses the flimsy band that holds our world in order. When this band is expanded we are gods.
Mu comes face to face with his destiny, and destiny reveals to him ‘a purpose’ beyond his wildest imaginations – the challenge to teach years of music in a few hours! Mu realizes, he needs to stand tall in order to humbly acquiesce this challenge.
The practical element to this science fiction fantasy is that each participant is encouraged to sit in front of musical keyboards and learn the equivalent of two years of music in a very short time over the course of the twelve episodes through an accelerated learning methodology that Musetude has developed – either through online apps or their own instruments. This enables them to interact with the TV Series, merging education and entertainment.
Benefits of the Mastertude synthesis:
TV Series up until this point have been about passive mirroring. They provide us with ‘feelings of brilliance’ that are lost in the vast sea of the viewers memories as we, the viewer don’t have a way to utilize these ‘feelings of brilliance’.
Through the Mastertude TV Series we want to change this passive experience and introduce active learning that utilizes these ‘moments of brilliance’ by providing the viewer with a firm skill-set: The Learning of Music.
Most people will be vary of this change because they believe that entertainment helps them wind-down. But contrary to that assumption if you gravitate to TV series that are suspense driven, philosophical or psychological in nature, they cause a mental work-out.
The entertainment you gravitate towards provides you with two vicarious opportunities for learning: 1. through imitation, 2. through reflection. The Mastertude synthesis provides you with the missing link; participation.
Evolution of Entertainment:
This is the generation of thinkers thanks to technological advancements, the internet and access to knowledge galore. All this generation of thinkers require is to ‘mirror’ an attitude of impeccability, will, discipline and focus. The Mastertude film will use the medium of storytelling to bring about the evolution of man.
To keep up with this generation, we need to attach heightened-learning to the existing entertainment model providing people with a holistic long-lasting experience they never forget.
The Mastertude Method:
The Pythagoreans and other mystery schools of the past integrated education, living, working and entertainment. One was not gifted knowledge until one had sufficient control and discipline in the arena of life. The main aim was to ‘know oneself’.
Society today has separated all these aspects of life and categorized each individually. Each individual categorisation has been diluted in its ability to impact by being separated out. Therefore we spend most of our life living halfheartedly, below our potential, and hardly attain higher states of self-actualisation or transcendence, because this would require us to integrate rather than separate.
“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.” – Lawrence Pearsall Jacks
