"I am SO SO SO glad I invested in this course. To be honest, just the organizing footage portion was worth it. The way Matt shows how to scrub footage and plan the story will save me so much time and will help the flow of my films. A lot of "ah ha" moments. Matt's method is going to work perfectly for us."

"Been waiting for something like this for us Premiere Users for 2 years. Thanks so much for doing this. I can't imagine the hard work it took to put this together. It is worth way more than what I paid. The value is definitely there."

Kyle T.

"This course has been such an eye-opener for me. It's exactly what I've been looking for and has taught me things I've been trying to find on YouTube for MONTHS."

You will have access to this course for life! You can always login and watch this course online from wherever you are using your web browser or smartphone.

While I do make long YouTube videos (like my 50+ minute Panasonic GH5 review), this course isn't measured in minutes, but in hours. 

In the past I've made YouTube videos that touch on smaller aspects of editing, but this course is a complete look at my entire editing process from beginning to end. There won't be any waiting on me to upload the next YouTube video, it's all here, ready for you to watch.

Much like how wedding films have highlight edits that are shorter and documentary edits that are longer, I chose to offer the same options for how you can watch this course.

If you want that maximum amount of knowledge in the shortest amount of time, I've condensed the most important parts of editing a wedding film down into "Highlight Edit" lessons.

On the other hand, if you want to see every click, edit, and tweak that I make to this wedding film as I edit, then I have also created "Documentary Edit" length lessons.

Regardless of which option you choose, I promise you will learn a lot.

Matt's Music List is a service created by my wife Rachel and I to help you find music for your wedding films FAST. With every PRO or VIP purchase you will receive 3 playlists of songs that we recommend for using in your wedding films. The playlists will feature songs from Soundstripe, Musicbed, & Artlist.

If you purchase the PRO or VIP tier of Wedding Film Framework, I will critique a wedding film of your choice (VIP members get 3 wedding films critiqued) via email.

Simply send me a link of the film you would like critiqued as well as any notes about specifics you would like feedback on and I will get back to you with my detailed thoughts asap.

Please note: Your wedding film critiques offer will expire one year after you purchase the course. Please book your critiques within one year of your purchase.

The lessons aren't available for download, but you can login and watch from wherever you have an Internet connection on any device with a web browser.

Yes! This course covers the menus, settings, and keyboard shortcuts that I use in Adobe Premiere Pro. Even if you have never edited in the software before, you will learn everything you need to know to be editing like a pro in no time.

Hey! My name is Matt Johnson and my wife Rachel and I run FilmStrong Wedding Films, based in Texas. I've been filming weddings since 2010 and growing my beard since 2012, with no interest in stopping doing either of those.

I've created this course to distill all my knowledge about how to edit wedding films creatively and efficiently. My goal is to show you not only how I edit a certain way, but why.
