  1. I need to learn good transition techniques and how to actually plan these kind of videos for businesses. Any chance you cover all this in your membership? Awesome content!

  2. Well done Matti. I’m a college student majoring in business and then after college focusing on being a fulltime freelance videographer/photo.

    To my fellow college students that are trying to make money for your filmmaking business, I’ve found that offering photoshoots ranging from $25-75 USD and doing sports photos gets you a decent cash flow (well, decent enough to get you by).

    Depending on you, you can make just as much if not more than a part time job, also it’s not as dry as working at a mall or something lol.

  3. ANYONE that starts believing that they "too good" for a 'too small' or 'lesser' project that comes their way is a failure. Just because you get experience does not make you better than the next guy or too good to accept a lesser paying gig.

    Those lesser paying gigs are where you started and forgetting that makes you a FAILURE!

  4. These are my notes for the video.

    Traditional route :
    1. Go to film school
    2. Get into a production crew and work there.
    If you’re a hard worker then you’re probably gonna get called for another project.
    But you need to have a portfolio to get into one.

    Try to approach as many agencies.

    [You get paid by day rates usually]

    Unconventional routes :

    1. Wedding filmmaking
    2. Corporate films (they don’t need to be that flashy but they pay quite well)
    3. Passive Income – sell stock footage, YouTube, affiliate marketing, etc.

    • never think a project is beneath you.
    • don’t under charge and finally
    • don’t work for free even if little start charging right away.

  5. Hi Matti, big fan of ya. I have been a small video/photo business that is PT for a year or so.

    I'm about to get let go from my day job soon. Just wanted to let you know because of your videos. You give me hope to make a good life shooting video/photos.

    Cheers my guy. I'm going in!

  6. I was not sure if i would go through the entire video, and i did. This video is so great, it really motivated me and made me focus on the things i have to make now, im starting a carrer as a filmaking/editor , so thanks matti, great video ♥

  7. [SOLVED]
    Hi guys,
    I can answer this question correctly because I was also looking for this answer from quite a long time, since I am also a movie maker. And I know, it is very hard to earn money from your new feature film, short film or any other movie through YouTube adsense..
    Very recenty i came across one site called as reeluca.com, where you can upload your short films and movies/video/ shows online. And you can actually sell your ticket online like normal movie show.
    @Copied from reeluca.
    How does Reeluca work?
    Reeluca also works the same way, like any other video sharing platform like YouTube, Facebook. It helps you to upload any videos, movies, shows online so that you can reach out to your audience and make money out of it.
    How To Make Money?
    While uploading any video at Reeluca, it will ask to specify the pricing model per video. Meaning, whether you want your viewers to watch the video for free, or you want to make money from your viewers for watching the video. Price can vary from Rs. 3-100 per video.
    Let charge of a video is: Rs. 10.
    And you got 500 viewers for that video.
    Then your total profit: 10*500=Rs 5000/-
    (Reeluca will charge a nominal part of share)
    Guys, you can try this. It workss !!!
