Frequently Asked Questions
 
What is the Muse Storytelling Process?

Muse is a proven process for finding and crafting remarkable stories. By 'process' we simply mean that it's a framework for how to approach storytelling.

The Muse Process is based on the 4 Pillars of Story: People, Places, Purpose, and Plot. Maximizing each Pillar is the key to developing a story that is engaging, felt, remembered, and compels action.

The Muse Process will take you through all 4 Pillars of Story. It will show you exactly how to make the most of each Pillar in every story you tell. You'll be left feeling empowered by knowing exactly where to start, what you're looking for, and how to take each step with extreme intention.
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.

Each module, complete with tutorial, case-studies, quizzes, and applications, takes about 60-90 minutes to complete. How many notes you take, and if you do all the case studies helps determine whether you are on the high or low end of that.

We HIGHLY recommend doing one module at a time so that you can learn the core concepts then see them applied right away.
 
Who is the Muse Process for?

At its core, Muse is about story—about using a process that will help you structure an engaging plot with remarkable characters that will truly connect your audience. And story is relevant to anyone who wants to create a connection, be that a photographer, writer, or filmmaker, no matter if you're a hobbyist or expert.

Our background is in events, so at its release Muse best helps those working with real people. While creatives who create narratives stories will definitely benefit from Muse and its approach to story structure, it will be a bit before we add even more modules specifically related to that genre and so in the early days please realize that while MUSE applies to narrative work, we aren’t making those connections as directly for you.

Muse currently shines when put to use by creatives who work with documentaries, commercial work, and weddings.
 
What if I am not happy? What if I want a refund?

Creatives around the world have achieved amazing results with the Muse process. That being said, it’s not a silver bullet or magic pill. It’s a process that helps you develop your thinking about story and gives you the tools to reliably bring those stories to life. It works when you put in the work.

If Muse is not delivering results for you, you can take us up on our 14-day 100% satisfaction guarantee. Contact us within two weeks of your purchase and we’ll refund you in full. 
 
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.

But more than just storytellers, we’ve long been educators as well. We’ve conducted over 100 workshops across the globe. We’ve taught for Canon, Vimeo, and YouTube. We’ve done years of research in the fields of psychology, anthropology, sociology, and neuroscience—and we’ve worked with pioneers in the science of storytelling and virality, like Paul Zak and Jonah Berger— to ensure that what we teach is backed not just in experience, but by science as well.

We believe education is a massive responsibility. The opportunity to add to somebody's thinking might just be one of the greatest ways we can help each other. And that means that the ideas need to be both informative and informed. They need to be engaging. And they need to be structured in a way that supports learners in truly understanding the core concepts along with why they are true. In this way, it doesn’t matter which medium of storytelling you live in, learners may see a myriad of other ways these concepts can be applied in their daily life. After all, story is everywhere.

The Muse process is built on the idea that we must guide the heart to move the mind. That we need to move people emotionally if we want to change their perspective and/or behavior. This concept was presented at the United Nations in 2014 to a group of global business leaders. And Muse was created to be a step-by-step clear and tangible way to find and build your stories in a way that will move your audience and bring them to your purpose, whether that’s a product, service, issue, or idea.
But more than all of that, watch our stories. They were built with nothing more than heaps of passion and a super clear process. If you enjoy stories like Old Skool, The Final Stitch, or Soar, then you’ll love learning the process that brought them to life.
