VIDEOGRAPHER SPOTLIGHT | FILM STRONG PRODUCTIONS

Date: July 03, 2017

Name(s): Matt and Rachel Johnson
Business Name: Filmstrong Productions
Website: www.filmstrong.com
Where are you based out of? Dallas, Texas
Are you currently a part-time or full-time videographer? Full Time
What camera(s) do you currently shoot with? A7sii
How would you define your style?
I don’t know if we have a style. Since we film mostly wedding films we try to create a film that fits the couple’s style, not our own.

 

What motivated you to become a videographer?
Matt started making short films for fun during his early college days and loved the creative aspect of it. He started getting paying gigs and never looked back. We love the freedom of owning our own business, as well as the feeling of making something. We are workaholics and want to work on videos even in our “off time.”
What is it that you try to convey with each video?
We try and convey the bride and groom’s personality in each film. We want the wedding films we create to be about their love story, the journey that it took to reach that current moment in time, and everything they are looking forward to in the future.

How do you accomplish that?
Our primary goal is to build a relationship with our clients. We take the time to get to know our couples before wedding day in order to build trust and better understand the story we’ve been hired to tell.
Where do you find inspiration for your work?
We watch a ton of Youtube videos, and other wedding filmmakers to gain inspiration. There is also so much freedom in knowing that not every film needs or should be the same.
What is your most memorable accomplishment so far in your career?
We are thankful that we have the opportunity to teach other wedding filmmakers through Matt’s Youtube https://www.youtube.com/WhoIsMatt

What is one thing you have learned during your career?
It’s important to remember that filmmaking is a collaborative process and having multiple people working on a project only improves the resulting film.
Which Photographer Supply Company products do you currently use?

How have Photographer Supply Company products helped your business?
