LEARN MUSE, AN 8-STEP PROCESS THAT WILL UNLOCK THE MAGIC OF STORY.
Learn Stillmotion’s patent-pending 8-step process, MUSE, that will help you become a master storyteller. Developed with over 9 years of research in Psychology, Neuroscience, Sociology, and Anthropology the process is both informative and informed, while being incredibly clear and approachable. Learning MUSE will allow you to harness the power of story to create compelling brand films, case studies, launch products and services, or rally people around your cause.
MUSE is built to help you take the big, ambiguous task of creating a story and break it down into much smaller steps. It creates focus,clarity, and a new understanding of what story truly is. In 8-steps MUSE will show you how to you to speak to the heart to move the mind. How you can use the 4 Pillars of story to hook your audience, pull them in emotionally, and take them on a journey that brings them to your purpose - whether that’s selling a product or service, celebrating a brand, or rallying around a cause.
MUSE is a process Stillmotion uses to tell stories for some of the worlds biggest brands; ATT, Apple, CBS, the NFL and more. In 2014, the overarching concept of speak to the heart to move the mind was presented at the United Nations in front of global business leaders.
HOW TO CONDUCT REMARKABLE INTERVIEWS. INTERVIEWING REINVENTED.
With the right approach, every interview can be remarkable.
The biggest mistake we often fall into is assuming those we interview are either 'good' or not, rather than realizing the role we play as the interviewer. We'll explore techniques for creating your questions, how to ask them in a totally new way, and ways to make your interviewee feel like they are chatting with a close personal friend.
Learn how to conduct stronger interviews with 5 powerful techniques.
BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN THE STORIES IN YOUR HEAD AND BRINGING THEM TO LIFE
Taking an idea and building it into a blueprint through the 8-steps of muse is a huge first step. But then we need to bring that story to life, in the real world, where we have to get access, work with people, and make sure we stay on track.
Telling a remarkable story inevitably means you’ll come head-to-head with several things that will feel impossible. It’s all an illusion, and it’s all solvable. We’ll share proven ways of becoming more creative in your problem solving and how to shake up your perspective.
The biggest mistake we often fall into in making a film is focusing so much the actual shot or deliverable that we neglect the experience of everybody around us, and those in front of our camera. That experience is much more vital to your story than any lens choice, light placement, or camera move.
We'll show you how to create your own reality. Create expectations. Create experiences. Create solutions. All that allow you to bring your story to life in the most powerful way

“This is what I love Stillmotion for. Their ability to tell stories and teach others how to do so in one day at such a ridiculously low cost has got to be the best offer to aspiring & experienced filmmakers alike.
Anyone can learn how to shoot video, few learn how to make their audience feel. This workshop is game changing.”
“I learned more in eight hours with Stillmotion than in four years in film school. ”
“Exceeded all my expectations. Very insightful and will refer back to every single piece of this workshop for the rest of my life.”
