When it comes to a quintessential understanding of filmmaking, few in the international wedding filmmaking circuit come close to the caliber of MYW. He is widely known for his logical, no nonsense approach in creating smart, sophisticated, production house caliber films that never stray from telling a compelling and meaningful story.


“A very talented presenter who is able to deconstruct the thought processes of his stunning wedding films in a way that is both entertaining and immediately understandable.” – AVPA award winner Dave Cowling // D’nM Wedding Films; Australia


“MYW’s films are virtually impossible to critique as his careful choices leave little to be improved upon” – Mutli-time eventDv top 25 international award winning filmmaker/educator Konrad Czystowski // Freshsox; Canada


“MYW can shoot with a 7 year old VX to outproduce 99% of the 5D wedding films of today”  - Mutli-time eventDv top 25/weva international award winning filmmaker/educator Ray Roman Films; USA.


With a fierce passion for sharing to elevate of the overall wedding filmmaking community, MYW has taught and trained beginners, intermediates and internationally award winning wedding filmmakers alike.  His educational trademark is to passionately share and dissect the most advanced filmmaking concepts via practical, step-by-step examples that stimulate understanding and application for beginners and advanced film-making students.

“learning is forever. You can learn, apply, obsess, grow, then repeat; and watch your films become more beautiful, more meaningful, more powerful.  Or, you can do the same, produce the same, make the same, stay the same.

you want to make more money?  learn to produce a product that undeniably looks and feels like it costs much much more then you charge. want to attract more brides? learn to create films that aren’t only technically beautiful but most importantly emotional.  Shooting pretty pictures simply isn’t enough.Want to stay forever busy and employed??  then apply all of the above. Learn to invest in yourself before expecting anyone else to invest in you.  Investing is LEARNING.” ~ Michael Y Wong
