The Fastest Way to Get More Leads, Be More Profitable, and Work Fewer Hours in your Corporate Filmmaking Business
Nowhere are you more comfortable than behind a camera or your editing monitor.
But making a business grow and scale? That’s another story.
That’s the hard part.. I’m here with the practical skills and framework they didn’t teach you in film school, so you can confidently start or scale your video business.
Ready to ditch overwhelm, frustration, and burnout for good?I'M READY FOR THIS →
Have you ever…
- Felt unsure how to start or scale your video business in a saturated (and noisy) industry?
- Gotten so busy filming and editing you neglected the business side of things?
- Been stuck serving the wrong clients who don’t pay you what you’re worth?
- Said yes to a project even though you’re not passionate about it?
- Wasted hours on social media, hoping it will attract your dream clients, only to hear crickets?
Does that feel like your business?
If this list makes you exhausted,
What if instead, you had…
- A production company that allowed you to work less and make more?
- The capacity to take on passion projects
- A business that made money while you slept (or while sipping a craft beer at your favorite brewery)?
- Complete confidence in your worth and charged it?
This is 100% possible for your video business.
The best part?
You don’t have to sit around and wait for it to happen...we’re bringing the solution right to you.
Most people tell you that the way to make more in your video company is to get that cinema look, use high-end gear, make endless Reels or TikToks to build a following, pump money into Facebook ads, or fake it til you make it.
Pardon my french, but that’s a bunch of BS. There’s a better way.
Honestly, I wasn’t profitable for the first five years of my video business. I struggled with working non-stop (my new bride was mostly supportive but it wasn’t easy), staying on top of bookkeeping stuff, being buried in editing, not getting enough sleep, not charging enough, and not knowing where to look for the kind of clients I wanted to work with.
During that time, I discovered THREE key things:
1) Systems and processes would be the only way
2) The importance of working ON my business instead of only IN it
3) How to set me apart from the competition and charge up to ten times as much (true story!)
Today, I run a million-dollar-a-year video production business and I want to share what I’ve learned so you can make fewer mistakes and start crushing it now.
Get the results you want.

Meet Your Head Sherpa
Hey friend, I’m Ryan Koral!
I believe in the power of video to help people tell stories that impact the world. I also know running a video business is really freakin’ hard.
When I started my studio in 2004, I was great at the video part, but the business part? Not so much. I struggled to sign clients, create structure, and land jobs that did more than pay the bills. Over the next decade, I slowly figured things out through trial and error—lots of error. Today, I’ve built a 7-figure video production business booking large-scale projects, filmed all over the world, and worked with iconic brands and celebrities.
With a repeatable process that’s equal parts strategy and execution. And now, I’m handing it over to you.
A sherpa’s job is to use their experience to show others how to climb the mountain; which path to take, where to step, and what to avoid. That’s exactly what my team and I at Studio Sherpas will teach you through the Video Business Academy.
You bring your passion, I’ll bring my expertise, and together we’ll build the video business of your dreams.
The Video Business Academy is the signature course to grow your video business if...
- You’re an aspiring or current commercial filmmaker
- You’ve got the filming and editing parts down, but feel stuck or overwhelmed by the actual business side of things.
- You're tired of hoping and praying the "perfect" client is going to land in your lap
- You want to take your video side hustle full-time.
- You’re ready to put in the work it takes to succeed in the video business —and can’t wait to engage with others in our community!
Can you picture scaling your business
so that it works for you, not the other way around?
It’s time to get the knowledge and tools you need to start working ON your business, so you can reclaim freedom IN your life.
You have two choices.
One choice is to not take me up on this offer and we can guess where you’re business might be in 12 months. If you don’t have a plan or you’re not following a specific roadmap to help you get leads, charge more, and automate parts of your work - then your business probably won't be much different than it is today and you’ll still have a lot of your same frustrations.
The other choice is that you invest in the Video Business Academy and start applying the framework immediately that I’ve spent the past 17 years building, refining, and improving. Imagine cutting your work hours by half, doubling your rates while increasing your profits, and working with clients you love. It’s up to you if you’d like to join the program and have a blueprint for growing and scaling your video business. The step-by-step video lessons, sales scripts, fill in the blank templates, bonuses, and future upgrades to the Academy are all yours once you enroll and you can get access to everything today.
