Filmmaking Lifestyle is a site set up with the intention of helping filmmakers and videographers improve their skills, both business wise and technical.

Filmmaking Lifestyle has been running since 2011 – first as a place for me to share my journey, and then as a full scale educational site. Since this time the site has seen growth from just a handful of readers through to thousands of daily visitors.

To help the site expand and to cover costs of running the site, from time to time Filmmaking Lifestyle runs some advertising on the site and engages in the use of some affiliate links. These affiliate links (largely to the Amazon store) earn Filmmaking Lifestyle  a small commission on any purchases that anyone makes when they visit Amazon after clicking on one of our links.

These commissions help us to keep Filmmaking Lifestyle growing.

We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.it, Amazon.de and other Amazon stores worldwide.

Rest assured, I only recommend products or services that I personally use or believe will be helpful to my readers.

This blog is not primarily financially driven.

That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations.

Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to specify this. Ditto if I use an Amazon link that gets me 8 cents instead of an Amazon link that gets me 0 cents. If someone gives me a comfy t-shirt with a logo and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers all over the place.

This would be tedious for me and a continual eye sore for readers. But rules is rules.

To cover my ass and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product I use, the following all hold true:
