Meet The Muse Process
Muse is your blueprint for how to create emotionally-moving films that your clients can't stop talking about.
Developed from over a decade of Emmy-Award winning filmmaking experience combined with deep research in the fields of psychology, anthropology, and sociology.
Muse walks you through a step-by-step process on how to find the best story, how to communicate with your clients, and how to make every creative decision with clarity and intention.
We currently have over 2,000 Muse Filmmakers across the world. Many of them are now attracting budgets several times higher, while also producing work that they enjoy, and delivering for their clients.
How learning the muse process improves your business
You'll have the clarity to develop a powerful creative vision and you'll know the steps needed to execute on it.
The Muse Process empowers you to confidently communicate with your clients exactly how you'll approach their project.
A clear and detailed process brings confidence and authority to your work, allowing you to ask for (and get) higher budgets.
The Muse Process includes three clear milestones so that you can take your clients on the journey as you develop their film.
Gone are the days of finding the story in post. Muse empowers you to shoot less, yet to shoot with more intent. That means better work in less time.
Objective process milestones also give you, as the creative, confidence that every decision is made with intent and will deliver results.
Understand your client's goals and articulate them as a series of Story Keywords–a powerful way to gain trust and creative control from the onset of a project.
A clear process will help you navigate the production challenges that inevitably arise with far greater confidence and ease.
why we include three 1-on-1 sessions with muse
As filmmakers ourselves, we believe that well-told stories can, and do, change the world. We want to empower you with Muse so that your stories reach more people, you make a larger impact, and you love what you're creating.
These 1-on-1 sessions are here to ensure your success. Muse only matters if you truly grasp the concepts and know how to apply them to your filmmaking and business.
Our first session is all about understanding your goals, challenges, and designing a custom learning plan that meets you where you are at.
This is where we check-in to answer any questions, clarify any concepts, and start discussing how the process fits into your filmmaking and business.
The last session is where we get you up and running on a current or upcoming project. This ensures that you see exactly how Muse can best fit for the work you do.
