About FL

So what exactly is Filmmaking Lifestyle?

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. 
We 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.

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.

Why Read This Site?

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.


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. If you haven’t already, Start Here.
I post a new article every Monday and extra posts here and there, too. So make sure you check back regularly!
Enjoy the site!
