After a long career in software engineering, Gwyn Cole made the jump to a new career in filmmaking. Despite only four years of experience in film, Gwyn recently had two shorts of his premiere on the BBC, and it’s all thanks to his deep commitment to telling stories.
On my last day in Nepal, while walking to the market, I met a young man named Sanjay.
Sanjay was studying to become a master painter. And as I learned more about him, I got a powerful reminder about what it really take to become truly great at your craft. I was so moved by our interaction, and what he showed me that day that I had to put this video together to share with all of you.
One of the core principles at Muse is that we let the story move us before we move the story. This means we take a step back when starting a new project so that we can spend time trying to understand the story (like, truly understand it on a fundamental level). We don’t make any creative or logistical decisions right away, at least not until we’ve got a better sense of what the story actually is and where it’s going.
