Featured Filmmaker Friday – Matt Davis

Today is part 2 of 2 of my series on video business coaching. Last week we had Kris Simmons who has been a very successful corporate video producer over the past 10+ years.  Today we have the head coach of wedding filmmaking, Matt Davis of Life Stage Films. You may remember Matt as the guy behind my post “the best wedding video promo on the planet.” He’s only been in the business for about five years, but in that time he as grown to become a 3-time EventDV Top 25 videographer, and has a very successful studio in Wilmington, NC. Today we learn about how he went from shooting a video for the non-profit Samaritan’s Purse, to diving head first into the wild, weird world of weddings. You’ll learn about branding, following your passion, and get the backstory on the making of his great promo. There’s all of that plus much more.

Bumper music for this show is “Tater City” by Glenn Shambroom, part of the TRUE ROMANCE collection, courtesy of Triple Scoop Music.

Besides being a smart business man, as the video below can attest, Matt is also a very talented artist.
