Filmmaking is a chance to live many lifetimes.

–Robert Altman

So what exactly IS this!?

Filmmaking Lifestyle brings readers tutorials and guides on setting up and growing a video production business, as well as articles on independent filmmaking of all kinds.

The guides on Filmmaking Lifestyle teach readers how to run a successful video production company, covering topics like business, success, filmmaking and more. I have guides on everything from marketing, pricing, selling your services and forging a strong mindset to deal with everything business (and life) throws at you.

The articles on this site are based on studying the best business and filmmaking minds out there, as well as out-in-the-trenches experience.

But who ARE you?

My name is Matt. I was born in the UK, lived for a while in the United States, as well as extensive travels around the world. I own a successful video production company and I’m a full time filmmaker and entrepreneur.

Taking a break.

I worked for a while in the school system making promotional videos for a chain of schools. I’ve also held a job in corporate-ville, but left when I realized the world of employment wasn’t for me.

Since then, I’ve been an entrepreneur, starting my video production company back in 2012.

Interested in advertising on Filmmaking Lifestyle? I have a page right here that describes everything you need to know.

I’m also all about public speaking, so get in touch to see if I’m available to speak at your event.

Why read this blog?

I think it’s important that the videography and filmmaking blog world builds a passionate community around people who want to help improve themselves, each other and their respective careers.

I write articles and how-tos about setting up and growing your video business; as well as offer tips and guidance in all things filmmaking, business and more!

I intend to evolve the blog into an awesome place for the shared knowledge, experience and positivity of filmmakers and videographers all over the world!

As well as working videographers and filmmakers, I invite anyone who’s got an urge to make something better of themselves, their career or their lives to follow along.

This site started as a place where I shared motivational posts, thoughts and ideas on mindset and success from a filmmaking perspective. At first, I did this more for myself than an audience, as I pushed myself to start my video production business.

As I achieved success with my business, I started to post more guides about how other entrepreneurs can setup a business like mine.

The site has evolved into something that I’m proud to share with the world. If you haven’t already, Start Here.

Enjoy the site!

  1. Hi there,

    Thought you guys might be interested in using a video like this one for blog posts or the likes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UiRN3JXkwA
    I am trying to raise awareness of mental health issues and how to overcome them through a feature length documentary called Awaken The Giant Within. The above video is meant to be a promotion of the larger project.

    1. Hi Mads,

      Your intro video is really cool. Good work!

      I’ll probably include it in an upcoming article (probably the ‘Best of March’ roundup post coming up!)

      The idea for Awaken the Giant Within is awesome, too. I’ll be sure to give you a shout out on social media.

      Let me know if you’d like to write an article here on Filmmaking Lifestyle about your filmmaking experiences?

      Cheers,

      Matt

  2. Hi Matt,

    Thanks for your reply. I’m glad you liked the video! Thanks a lot! I’m excited to be included in your upcoming article.
    We will look forward to your social media shout out. We feel we have a really good idea and could really use some exposure, views, and backers. Your help means a lot!
    I’d be happy to write an article about my experiences as filmmaker. How should I proceed?

    All the best,

    Mads
