I loved this one. The only problem is, people will like the work that I do but then don’t want to pay the price that I set (which is usually far too reasonable lol)

Riccardo Fiaccadori's GoPro POV says:

Love your videos! You are inspiring me so much! THANKS

World Wide Wallace says:

Thanks for the great video- very useful. I have been working with a few clients that I consider ‘low hanging fruit’- taking whatever projects come my way like you suggest. But since they are non profits, schools, etc I have to chase them to send me checks and they seem confused with my contract. Any advice on negotiating pay and contracts?

Awkward Aesthetic says:

very inspiring brother.

Elmer Cuaton says:

Nice info. bro. thanks.

Scandal Production says:

Any recommendation for websites finding small corporate jobs and good website to sell stock footage?

FinkleVids says:

Yeah I’m about to go to film school (I’m a senior in high school) and I’m thinking about minoring in business to get more familiar with that side of things


Really appreciate this kind of stuff…
I am just starting out and there is so much more to learn

Sam Wilder says:

Christian Lungay says:

You are such a great inspiration bro 🙂

Pixel Ranger Studio says:

Austin Sabado says:

Wow Matt this really helped alot. Thank you so much! Very inspiring and encouraging! Looking forward to more.

Antti Heikkilä says:

These are such useful tips! I’m nowhere near ready to make money with videos but I’ll keep this in mind for the future 🙂 Keep making these great tutorials!

Rachel Swinden says:

Definitely keen to hear more about passive income thought! 🙂 Looking forward to your courses on business and finance!

Daniel Anger says:

Your color grading course is amazing! I learned so much from it! And… As a 13 year old, or just a young filmmaker, money can seem like a miracle, but if you work hard, follow God’s lead, God can bless your work. It’d be awesome if I could email you sometime! Thank you so much for this helpful channel, I also watch Peter Mkcinnon. Thank you Mr. Matti, sorry if I spelled that wrong. GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!

Russel Balugo says:

Awesome vid. Great topic that most artist almost never talk about.

Rachel Swinden says:

Dude, this is exactly the type of advice people like me need when we’re starting out! 🙂
Thanks so much!

Lorena Espiga says:

Great and informative video! Thank you Matti!

Suvendu kumar says:

Hello Matt, it was a very inspiring and learning video. I want to start as a travel vlogger/film maker, any advice from your side to help me out? 🙂

Michael Rowlandson says:

I would advise staying away from the micro stock photography. Cant get much from the photography side of things.

Rafał Prokopiak says:

I’m about to start the website and video makeing company. As you mantioned about the passive income, I also want to automize the business. I don’t really know how it can be done not only employ people/ freelancers but shorten whole process of creation (besides using templates etc.)
Do you have some ideas?
I would be happy to contact you personally in my learning process.
Best regards

Tal Leron says:

How can I learn of making money through youtube? As long as I make the content myself, how do I learn about the youtube system best?

SuperDordelly says:

Thanks for sharing…

Tucker Tangeman says:

Jan-anne Kloosterboer says:

Hé, great video. I am a starting filmmaker as I am very bored at school. I have made some small movies for family and friends, but other companies don’t really take me seriously. I am however driven on the fact that I am a better filmmaker that the average freelance cameraman around. What should I do?

Turtle Time TV says:

$5k to $12k per wedding?! That’s nuts! I can’t find anyone willing to pay more than $500 for a wedding video. It’s honestly not even worth it, but I’m going to do a few this year just because it is fun. People will pay anything for a photographer, but nothing for a videographer. Where do you find wedding clients that care about video?

Aram K says:

Good video man !!

The GoodTime Chronicles says:

Peter McKinnon sent me here and I have to say in the first two minutes of watching your video I was so impressed with your Channel. I am a filmmaker who dreams of making films and videos full time one day. This video really connected with me and I appreciate you for making it. Looking forward to seeing more of your awesome videos.

Bryan Garces says:

what type of stock footage website do you recommend?! thank you for your informative videos!

Josh Peters says:

awesome video, just watched 6 of your videos in a row. You’ve gained a subscriber!

David L.I.V.E says:

Thank you so much for this video! Truly appreciate the honesty and experiences you’ve shared friend! Subbed and looking forward to future content =D
