|Grow Your Client List and Income||Differentiate Yourself from the Competition||Charge What Your Work Is Worth|
You have the technical ability, the creativity, and the vision to run a successful video production company.
You just need a framework for profitability.
These days, everyone with a camera thinks they’re a videographer. It’s become a race to the bottom in terms of pricing. If you lose another already low-priced bid to someone on Upwork, or someone’s kid brother right out of uni with no videography experience, you think you might throw in the towel.
When you started your video production company, you didn’t imagine how hard it would be to find clients who understand your value. You’re constantly hitting the pavement looking for clients and gigs. You spend hours putting together thoughtful proposals, only to have prospects let you know they’ve had to go with someone else, despite your impressive portfolio. Something’s got to give.
The fundamental challenge before you is this: How do you demonstrate the value of art?
How do you differentiate your skills from the abundance of video producers who will do the job for less?
And while you’re at it, how do you find clients who don’t question the return on their investment in video production?
What if you had a systematic approach to your business that raised your revenue while helping you land higher-paying clients?
You would have clients who trusted your expertise, more income, and a steady stream of leads without having to rely only on word-of-mouth.
There is a way to strategically quantify the value of what you do so you can earn the income you deserve.
You can land the right volume—and the right kind—of clients, so that your business is both stable and profitable.
I’m filmmaker Jackson Kingsley, and I’ve walked this road, myself—facing endless pitfalls and hurdles, until I created the video production company I’d always dreamed of.
Now I’ve packaged everything I have learned in over a decade in a course called Video Business Mastery, and I invite you to enroll.

Video Business Mastery is a course with hundreds of happy customers. Inside, I condense my decade of lessons learned and industry wisdom into 10 sections that teach video production business skills suited for every niche.

Meet your instructor, filmmaker Jackson Kingsley.
Creator of Video Business Mastery and owner of Five Day Film School
For the past 10 years I've been travelling all over the world creating videos for brands and broadcasters like National Geographic, Discovery, Porsche, AirBnb, and Sony. I've grown my production company from nothing, to consistently landing projects that are rewarding both financially and creatively. During this time I learned and tested a lot—and have now compiled my best practices into Video Business Mastery.
I have felt the same frustrations you experience with your film production company: clients who don’t understand the value of our work, insufficient leads, and low-priced competition.
The reason you are not as successful as you would like to be has nothing to do with a lack of creativity or skill—it’s because no one teaches the business concepts needed to build a thriving company in film school or when you learn videography. As filmmakers we need to strike a balance between the business and the creative so we can continue doing what we love without compromise. That’s why I established Five Day Film School and developed this extensive course: Video Business Mastery.
While this course covers every component for starting and growing a video business, in Video Business Mastery, I place heavy emphasis on the steps you can take to start consistently landing new clients and charging the rates you deserve.
I am extremely proud of this course, the quality of its curriculum, and the results my students have achieved. It truly delivers a life- and business-changing amount of value for video creators and others who want the opportunity to become a full-time filmmaker or strengthen their video production business.

What are Video Business Mastery students saying?
"Jackson knows his stuff. The course really helped me realize my weaknesses as a business owner. Being creative and talented are completely different skills than running a business. I wish I found this sooner. My first huge client I might not have left 80,000$ on the table because I charged day rates and was excited to get a $20,000 gig, only to have them tell me they were so happy because they loved it and last years cost them just over $100,000. Right then and there I knew I needed mentors in the business world of video. This is an investment that will save you time, and help you make more money doing the thing you love."
- Scott Herder, Filmmaker & Hyperflow Expert
"The Video Business Mastery course is a treasure trove of sound, clear and actionable advice. It has genuinely changed my work and life for the better.
I am so happy to have found it, since even the basic introductory steps have led me to treat my work and clients in a totally new way. This has made me feel hugely positive about what I have to offer as a creative, rather than having the uncertain please-all-comers attitude of a short time ago.
The clarity and focus alone has helped me land new clients, turned casual prospects into serious long term projects that I care about, and shown difficult clients no quarter!
So Jackson - thank you! For your calm assurance that we all can do this, waste less time and effort, make really great content and love our work and livelihood."
- Tom Glendinning, Professional Photographer & Videographer
"I love the simplicity and efficiency of the teaching system. Knowing what steps to take is invaluable. Not only do I feel more motivated to learn but I know exactly what to do now that I have it all clearly laid out. I’m very happy with this course and the time it has saved me is worth its weight in gold, thank you!"
- Charles Burt, CEO & Tech Entrepreneur
"I have been really loving learning from you in your course, you have lots of great info that I am implementing into my video production business immediately."
- Curtis Tilbury, Video Business Owner
