Ishell Vaughan Is Setting The Benchmark For Film Making

We hear all about filmmaker Ishell Vaughan’s remarkable rise and journey to success in the industry following years of dedication.

Dream To Reality

People in every corner of the globe have a dream.

But while most individuals have aspirations of what they want to achieve in their lives, and who they want to become, very few actually turn the vision into reality.

Far too often, people give up on their dreams and instead opt to live a life of discontent.

But that was not the case for Ishell Vaughan, who is a professional filmmaker, cinematographer, and the founder and owner of Ishell Vaughan Films – which is a media and entertainment company operating and shooting production level drones for short films, commercials, and stock footage.

Remarkable Growth

Ishell represents one-third of the founding members of Secret Society Motion Pictures. 

Back in the late 2000s, they could never have fathomed that the company would grow to what it is today. 

They were just three guys scrambling to manage an unforeseen workload, while undoubtedly gaining major popularity in the tri-state and surrounding areas. 

Today, Nimi Hendrix, Denity, and Ishell not only shoot the majority of your favorite artists’ music videos, but also run the most intuitive film internship program.

But, of course, while the three guys have enjoyed major success, they have also encountered countless challenges along the way.

But rather than let the challenges deter them from the vision, they used the experiences to grow and edge closer to their dreams.

For Ishell, the most valuable lesson that he has learned throughout the years is that you can’t be afraid to fail.

When he first started filming, he had no idea what he was doing, but he emphasized that he would have never learned from his mistakes if he did not make them.

Biggest Success

Furthermore, he would say that his biggest success is simply being able to wake up every day and do what he loves. 

He highlighted that there are a lot of people out there that have the freedom or ability to chase their dream. Getting to this level in his career took a lot of hard work and discipline – and, without that, there would not even be any accolades.

The future is bright for Ishell and Secret Society Motion Pictures.

Although they have already achieved a huge amount of success to date, they continue to challenge themselves as they set their sights on hitting new targets.

And with the unique work ethic and talent possessed by Ishell and the team, anything is possible in the future.

With the level of success that has been achieved, it is clear to see that there is a range of factors that separate Ishell from others, in particular the fact that he is simply different.

He thinks differently, he works differently and everything that he does is natural – he does not force anything.

Furthermore, his attention to detail is immaculate, although he is very relaxed.

Normally, when people look at a TV they see a TV, but when Ishell looks at a TV he sees a playgroup – he just has fun.
