Hi. Matt here. I’ve always believed in transparency on the web and so I am disclosing that I’ve included certain products and links to those products on this site that I will earn an affiliate commission for any purchases you make. My goal with the blog is to help educate you on the possibilities that exist for starting & growing your video business, but please understand I am doing this as a for-profit business and, frankly, so should you with your site unless you have some charitable endeavor in mind.
The site has grown so big at this point that it is nearly impossible to go back through and list each and every program that I have an affiliate agreement with. Given this, you should assume that any links leading you to products or services are affiliate links that I will receive compensation from just to be safe. Having said that, there are millions of products and services on the web that relate to filmmaking, video production and business. I only promote those products or services that I have investigated and truly feel deliver value to you.
FilmLifestyle.com is also a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.it, Amazon.de and other Amazon stores worldwide.
If you have any questions regarding the above, please do not hesitate to contact me by using the contact page. It can be accessed on the menu above.
Filmmaking Lifestyle (FilmLifestyle.com) 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.
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:
