COACHING FOR FILMMAKERS

 

Coaching is for filmmakers who aim to thrive amidst the competitive realities of the filmmaking business. Whether you are trying to break into branded content, create meaningful passion projects, or discover more about your voice as a filmmaker, my goal as a coach is to aid you in the process of working towards your filmmaking goals. All of my coaching work is done one-on-one and is custom-tailored to effectively align with each filmmaker's goals and core-values.

While directing is my primary focus as a coach, my passion for both the craft and supporting filmmakers enabled me to Creative Direct, DP, Edit, Co-Direct, and Supervise dozens of jobs for award-winning filmmakers as a founder and partner at my former commercial production company. Here is a link to a handful of those works: JonathanBregel.com/variable

So why do I coach filmmakers? After spending 10+ (fast-paced) years in the filmmaking industry, building a commercial production company from scratch, and working for top brands and organizations around the world, I have learned a lot about what it means to build careers in the industry while remaining true to oneself. I have also learned what it feels like to hit the ground (very) hard because of my own naivety towards the industry, it’s politics, and balancing life in general.

As a result of the 'trial by fire' process I chose to walk in my 20s, I feel empowered to pass on many of the tools, insights, and life-lessons I've learned, and continue to learn, to other filmmakers who are goal-driven and value-oriented.
