In fact, I spent the first thirteen years of my career ignoring and running away from the business side of things. From the outside, everything looked great — I had a team, we made interesting films, and yeah, even won a handful of Emmys.
But the truth is, I don’t like thinking about how we used to run Muse.
Over the last several years, I learned that it doesn’t have to be that way. And I want to share what I’ve learned, and what’s worked for us, with the courses we built for our academy!
When we say we’re experts in storytelling, we mean we live and breathe story. It’s the foundation of every single decision we make. We constantly develop and test hypotheses with our university partner at Boise State and we've published articles in the Journal of Media Psychology. This level of passion and intention is what we want to share with you in every course.
Under our belt
with elite clients like Apple, Four Seasons, and the NFL
to train TEDx, Sundance and the United Nations
taught in 100+ countries
Lots of people bullsh*t about this and throw the word ‘story’ around, but we’ve been invited to teach the science of storytelling at the United Nations. We constantly develop and test hypotheses with our university partner at Boise State and we've published articles in the Journal of Media Psychology.
So when we say we’re experts in storytelling, we mean we live and breathe story. It’s the foundation of every single decision we make. This level of passion and intention is what we want to share with you.
Who is Muse Storytelling, and who is Patrick?
Thanks for asking!
Muse Storytelling is a film production and story education company founded by Patrick Moreau. We’ve worked with some of the top brands in the world, like the NFL and Four Seasons, to deliver story-focused, impactful films.
We're a little embarrassed by this, but want a peek at our ‘trophy wall’?
Patrick has won five Emmys, shot in over 100+ countries, led commercial projects upwards of $500k, and directed three full-length feature films, with another on the way.
On the education side, Muse has led hundreds of workshops on storytelling and filmmaking for groups like the United Nations and SXSW, as well as on the TEDx stage. Thousands of filmmakers have gone through our storytelling training and we’ve been overwhelmed by their response.
We don't say all of this to brag, but to show that we’ve spent a long time learning the craft of filmmaking and telling stories all over the world.
And that our experiences have led us to being here today with you.
Are these courses only relevant to filmmakers? How about photographers, writers, and other creative thinkers?
We are filmmakers and have built our courses for filmmakers. However, all the concepts, systems management, and structures could easily be adapted for any creative professional who works with clients.
What if I don’t have a business yet? What if I’m thinking about creating one?
