how muse film school works
The next cohort begins Tuesday, March 13th at 1:00 PST.
The majority of the instruction for Muse Film School is done via twice weekly webinars, Tuesday and Thursday at 1:00 PST. This is where we'll teach the concepts, take questions, and discuss the weekly assignment.
Every week you'll be assigned an assignment that comes in two flavors: basic or ninja. The basic assignment applies the concepts covered that week and takes, on average, 2-3 hours to complete. The ninja assignment is available by request, and is an advanced level assignment often taking 5+ hours to complete.
1-on-1 support and feedback
From day one of the program you'll get direct access to your film school team, coaches, and the Muse Team via a private Slack channel.
More than just support, you'll get personalized feedback on every assignment and you'll be challenged to push further and go deeper.
