I get it. I feel the same way as you do
Passionate about my work and at the same time, a slave to my business. I totally relate to those feelings that being an entrepreneur and an artist sometimes feels like two entities.
I understand that it matters that you’re passionately invested in your work but you often face obstacles, it feels like you’re treading water and that your business is at a standstill.
Just like you, I have felt these same frustrations, when creativity appears to have reached the limit and your filmmaking no longer feels like it’s improving or developing the way you want it to.
I have the answer. Evolve Academy will help you overcome this and ensure you take your wedding video business to the next level, but without compromise.
And it’s about falling in love with your work again.

EMMA AS YOUR WEDDING VIDEO MENTOR
MY FILMMAKING & TRAINING EXPERIENCE
I am an audiovisual storyteller and one of Europe’s leading female wedding videographers.
For the past ten years I have run two highly successful film production companies, Story Of Your Day and The Story Creatives.
My career actually began in broadcasting almost three decades ago, where I worked in News & Current Affairs Programming for the BBC, ITV, Sky News and Reuters. During this time I worked as a News Reader, Reporter and Video Journalist. My work is known globally and I was recently featured in a Rangefinder article,
‘The Future of Filmmaking is Female’.
I am passionate about educating, inspiring and empowering female filmmakers.
I am an experienced mentor and have a proven training background, teaching filmmaking and storytelling at the BBC’s College of Journalism. I am a Canon-Recognised filmmaker and educator and an Ambassador for ‘Women Who Photo & Film’. I also host masterclasses at The Video Show in the UK on an annual basis.

AND TO BE PART OF A
The ONLY online course with mastermind membership that is EXCLUSIVELY for FEMALE & FEMALE-IDENTIFYING FILM CREATIVES
“Emma’s work is as stunning as the scenery your eyes are awarded with as you travel through Switzerland. ‘Story Of Your Day’ is not only worth a view but a long lingering visit as you settle back with your favourite poison and take in the work of a filmmaker who’s truly learnt what the movie button was intended for on a DSLR or mirrorless camera”
“Emma is one of Europe’s top female wedding filmmakers and helping to level the playing field in a predominantly male industry. She has twenty year’s BBC filmmaking under her belt and ten years shooting weddings which, quite frankly, is like being an Olympic athlete of video. She is not only a leading female wedding videographer trainer but the only videographer who specialises in educating and inspiring female filmmakers.”
Or are you really saying you can’t afford it? Because I know this is the best value for money you’ll get. So, ask yourself… Can you afford to do nothing? Are you happy with your level of filmmaking knowledge right now, are you satisfied with where you are in your business, the clients you’re attracting, the amount of time you’re working and the level of income you’re earning.
ALL THE GEAR, NO IDEA
If you believe that buying better equipment will make you a better wedding filmmaker, then you’re wrong. Buying a new car does not make you a better driver. There is absolutely no point in having all the gear with no idea. The wedding videography training course in this mastermind will teach you how to become an awesome filmmaker with the equipment you already have and help you make better decisions in what to buy in the future.
TIME IS WHAT YOU HAVE
Making the time to invest in your learning is key to becoming a better filmmaker. We can all make more time for this things we prioritise. This course is not only an amazing investment in your time but you’ll also learn how to manage your time better, set your goals to stay focused and it includes practical tutorials about wedding workflow, which also help prevent you from making fatal mistakes and SAVE YOU TIME.
NO ORDINARY COURSE
You sound just like me. But it all online courses are different. You can have the option to DIY this course but you may give up at the first hurdle. Evolve Mastermind Membership is fully immersive and hands-on and you will be accountable throughout, be part of a like-minded and active community, gives you access to weekly highly-curated webinars AND offers additional one to one support from me when needed.
PROOF IS IN THE FEEDBACK
Just take a look at my overall filmmaking background, ten years experience as a highly successful wedding videographer, with industry accolades and recognition. Then check out my training background and experience, which goes back even further from when I worked as a Filmmaking Coach and Trainer at BBC College of Journalism. Still not convinced… read and listen to all the reviews from current and previous students and clients.
REAL RESULTS, REALLY FAST
Everyone I have worked with typically sees results within three months, most are able to make improvement within their business immediately. If you show up, put in the work and carry out the tasks I give you then you will achieve the same success. I guarantee this. If you don’t, I’ll give you your money back.
