So what exactly is Filmmaking Lifestyle?

Filmmaking Lifestyle offers a platform for filmmakers of all kinds. We offer courses, community, tools & apps to help you run your video company, as well as an eCommerce store for filmmaking gear.


Originally started as a place to document my personal journey in the video production industry, Filmmaking Lifestyle has transformed into a leading platform, offering actionable courses, state-of-the-art tools, and an eCommerce store for filmmakers worldwide.



Who Founded The Site?

My name is Matt and I am the founder of Filmmaking Lifestyle. I was born in the UK, lived for a while in the United States, as well as extensive travels around the world. I ran a successful video production company & marketing agency and I’m a full time filmmaker and entrepreneur.

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.

the history of Filmmaking Lifestyle

The 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. Now, we have a team of experts on the cutting edge of the film industry.
From there, the site has grown into a media company, an education provider and an eCommerce store.
Enjoy the site!
