Words From Our WARRIORS

Your Video WARRIOR Mentors

Marcus Rideout

Marcus Rideout is the founder of the weekly Warrior Wednesday Show on YouTube and author of “Video Selling Formula” (the book that teaches filmmakers how to run sales meetings, word for word). Contrary to the legends surrounding the man, who also writes about himself in the third person, he’s really just a normal dude who stumbled upon a way to sell video (without selling out).

After proving it wasn’t a one-time fluke sale, he thought it was something only extroverts like himself would be good at. That is until he shared it with one of his most introverted friends, who happened to put it to work and do over $40,000 in his very first year of his own business!

These days he enjoys spending his time in the small Canadian city that captured his heart with his girlfriend of 8 years and their calico cat, “Cali”. He’s recently been seen torturing his neighbors while trying to learn how to play slide guitar on his National Reso-Phonic (one of three axes in his arsenal).

Nik Koyama

Nik Koyama started making videos at a young age because of his passion for becoming a professional skateboarder. He closed his first contract to make skate videos for an energy drink company when he was 9. The ‘Proof or it never happened’ culture led to a life-long obsession with a video camera. After breaking way too many bones, Nik decided he wanted to produce every type of video he could... and he did.

He didn’t even do it for money, and it wasn’t til a business owner forced a payday upon him for the work he did that opened his eyes to making money from his skill. He went on to earn 6 figures a year while still in high school from his video production work.

Recently he discovered and fell in love with the city of Santa Barbara and took a chance moving on a whim. He had no clients, no family, no backup plan, and within the first 12 months of being there built Santa Barbara’s premiere video production company, employed 13 staff, and sold just shy of $500,000 in video projects.
