I've been blessed to make a successful career out of doing what I love. But I know how hard it is to get there.
If you're wanting to pursure your dream as a filmmaker, my biggest advice to you is to get a mentor!
3 years ago I was newly married, broke, and lacked the skills to make a successful career. I came across an ad for the Ultimate Online Film School, Full Time Filmmaker, taught by Parker Walbeck - a filmmaking legend who had traveled the world with nothing but his camera.
I was aprehensive at first, but I quickly understood that if I wanted people to invest in me, I needed to be willing to invest in my business. I took the leap and joined Parker's community.
Nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, has been a greater contributer to my success than Full Time Filmmaker. Parker teaches how to shoot, edit, run a successful business and SO MUCH MORE! Not to mention being able to join the private Facebook Group of over 8,000 members who were all in the exact same boat I was in.
Within just 3 months of joining Full Time Filmmaker, I was able to quit both of my day-jobs and become a Full Time Wedding Filmmaker.
You're probably thinking it's too good to be true. Well, I've been a member of the course for 3 years and I still think that.

I'll be speaking at the Venture Workshop!
Venture will be May 4-7, 2020 in Denver, Colorado!
What is Venture Workshop? It is THE Workshop for Wedding Filmmakers to gather together and learn from one another.
It's a workshop that you do NOT want to miss out on!
Honeybook is the number 1 CRM software that I recommend to anyone who manages a business. It's simple, it's clean, it's professional, and it's a life saver.
CRM stands for Customer Relationship Management - and in the business of Wedding Videography, the Customer Relationship should be your number 1 priority. Honeybook helps you stay organized with your clients. It handles all of your inquiries, contact forms, invoices, price sheets, brochures, payments, calendars, and so much more.
I'd be lost without Honeybook. It's been one of the absolute best investments I've ever made to elevate my brand and my business.

Jake's Favorite LUTs
LUTs are like Presets for Video. They help enhance your colors BEYOND your color grade.
I'm VERY picky with what LUTs I use. They need to enhance my film, and not distract from it. I came across a LUT pack from White In Revery (incredibly talented filmmakers, if you don't know who they are... you're missing out), and their LUTs blew my mind. They're pricey, but worth every penny. I LOVE the look they give my final films.
You'll love them just as much. The colors are moody, but true, and they add a certain depth to the image that I just can't create on my own. You'll love their LUTs.
