Stage 2

Maybe you'll see a ring of frozen cream all around the inside of the bowl; that's good news, meaning that your cream is at the right temperature.

Stage 3 - 3 min.

Remove bowl from the freezer and without delay, whip cream at high spped. It becomes firm in about 2 or 3 minutes, 5 minutes maximum.

Stage 4

Continue to whip until the cream is firm enough, not too much otherwise you will make butter.

Your Chantilly cream is ready.

Stage 5
Chantilly cream can be made with a gourmet whip, see how in this video.
Remarks
There's a well known little story which says that Vattel, chef to the prince of Condé, invented Chantilly cream for a party gave by his master for king Louis XIV. There is a lovely scene about it in the Roland Joffé movie "Vattel". It's well told, probably fictionalized, and quite hare-brained ("it's the sugar that makes the cream smooth").

Following the same ideas it is possible to make chocolate chantilly and foie gras chantilly.
Keeping
Bad conservation for Chantilly, must be used faster.
