This course is based on 4 essential building blocks you need to work with in every story you tell to ensure you’ll really make an impact on your audience.
When we started thinking about this course, we wanted to create the best starting place for a creative. A quick way to get the 20% of storytelling concepts that end up making 80% of the difference in your work.
In other words, it's the course we wish that we had when we first started.
Today, we’re Emmy award-winning filmmakers who get hired to make feature-length documentaries on causes we care about, or we get commercial projects worth several hundred thousand dollars, but it took over a decade to get here. A decade of constantly thinking about story, reading books, analyzing work, and questioning how story really works.
We want to make that journey easier for you. Why? Because the world could use more well told stories right about now. And that’s something we can help with.
Here's a few of the things you'll learn when you take this course:
- How to ask the right questions and look in the right places to find strong characters
- The biggest thing you have to find within each character
- The secret ingredient from which you can build your whole story's structure
- How to preinterview those in your film and get really clear on what you need, and in what order
- The 5 Mistakes that are Fatal to Your Storytelling
- A 60-page ebook on the single most overlooked storytelling skill
We work with these four building blocks in every story we tell, each and every day. And that’s because they work. They’re the code, or deep structure, of a well told story. We believe that these ideas will make a tangible difference in your storytelling too—so much so that we back it up with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
We'll see you inside the course.
Your Muse Guide
Story is often told from a single perspective—but informed by many. And our story is no different. We're a band of engineers, writers, psychologists, filmmakers, and researchers who have come together because we believe that the shortest distance between two people is a story.
We believe that, through story, we have the potential to guide the heart to move the mind.
