Why should you choose our courses over other types of training?

We Offer Premium Trainings That Can't Be Found Anywhere Else

When we set out to make these trainings, we wanted to build a suite of trainings that were the best out there. See how we stack up to other options below.

  • Film School

    Film schools are ridiculously expensive for what they offer, and that’s not even including your actual filmmaking costs. Even if you did want to stump up around $80,000 to enrol in a good film school; let’s face it, not many people even live near a good one.

  • Books, magazines and blogs

    Books, magazines and blogs are great in some ways, but can’t offer the same level of detail and specificity that our training courses can. Follow along with our video training courses that make a difference in your life.

  • Other People's Courses

    Enrolling and traveling to people’s training seminars is just not feasible for most people. Our training courses are online and available 24/7, so you can come back to them again and again and continue to learn something new.

Recent feedback from our customers

"I am so glad I found Matt's stuff at Filmmaking Lifestyle. Matt's guidance in the book came at the right time for me and was like a guiding post in the fog. Before I read the book I had some vague understanding of what i had to do but was facing daily overwhelm with the practicalities of actually setting up my video business. After reading the book things just fell into place. Finally a plan and something to follow to get the results i was after! Thank you!"

- Jon Whale, UK

"Matt's book helped me shape my promotional plan so that people were suddenly chasing ME with jobs. And the best thing about it all is that it doesn't feel like selling! They're coming to me! Can't thanks Matt and Fast Forward enough. Get the book!"

Have Questions About Filmmaking Lifestyle's Courses?

Check out these frequently asked questions...

Q. Will I have access to my course forever?

Yes, of course. When you purchase a course, you buy a lifetime relationship with the course and me, the creator. You'll be entitled to lifetime updates, too, as this kind of information needs to be updated from time to time to keep it relevant.

Q. How will my training be delivered?

Depending on the particular course you go for, it'll be delivered in eBook form, in video form or audio form. Most courses have elements of all three - make sure you check the sales page to learn exactly what's in each course.

When you purchase, you'll be given a link to a special members area (unique to each course), where you can download the training.

Q. Are my payment details safe and secure?

Yes, most definitely. We use the latest in internet security and payment processors to ensure that your payment information, credit details and other personal data is handled securely and efficiently.

Q. Are you the real deal? Will I achieve the results I desire from taking your courses?

I'm most certainly the real deal. But don't take my word for it - check the testimonials and results people have achieved through working with me. You can find some of these on this very page (just above this section), as well as on the product information pages for each course.

Q. Why are you selling courses? Can I not just get the same information on your blog?

The blog is a great source of learning and information. However, these trainings offer a more premium and immersive experience with material not found anywhere else for free. It's also true that different people learn in different ways. Most of the courses above are video based, whereas with my blog I'm limited to text based teaching.

Q. I like the look of a few of the courses, Is there a recommended order to go through them all?

I've listed the courses from top to bottom in a recommended path, from beginner to intermediate and more advanced. For instance, the personal coaching course is our training program for more advanced filmmakers who've taken a path through out other trainings. Also, some of the trainings are market specific, like the wedding video training program.

Stay tuned, as I'm going to be adding more course offerings in the future.
