- 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.
- Part of the process involves understanding your clients goals and articulating those as a series of Story Keywords–a powerful way to gain trust and creative control from the onset of a project.

Why should I trust the Muse Process?
The Muse process has been developed with a decade of real-world storytelling experience by the Stillmotion team. Our stories have won 5 Emmys and we’ve had the amazing opportunity to work with some of the biggest brands out there. Folks like AT&T, Apple, Callaway, NFL, MLB, Toyota, Cartoon Network and more.
How will Muse transform my storytelling?
When you learn the Muse Process you also gain a deep understanding of story. That understanding, when paired with a step-by-step process, can be a radical shift in your storytelling.
How long does Muse take to learn?
We expect any one of our starter courses to take you an evening, whereas the Complete Muse course may take you anywhere from 10 to 15 hours to complete. We suggest spreading that time out over four to eight weeks. If you're a math whiz, you've already figured out that that means 1-2 modules every week.
