WHO IS ALEX FERRARI?
THE FILMMAKER THAT STARTED IT ALL
I'm Alex Ferrari. I've been in the film industry for over 25 years and have worked on well over 1000 feature films, shorts, commercials, music videos, network promos, documentaries, and webisodes. My personal films have been screened in 600+ film festivals around the world.
I created Indie Film Hustle to share what I've learned over the years as a writer, director, producer, and post-production/VFX supervisor. IFH is here to give you the REAL DEAL. The truth on how to make it as a filmmaker in this crazy and sometimes brutal business.
You'll find my approach to the biz a bit raw and real. That's because I care about my fellow artists and filmmakers. I've seen and personally made many missteps over the years and I want to help you avoid making the same costly mistakes.
IFH is part truth bomb, part motivation, and part lick in the butt. Never give up on your dreams...no matter what!
WHY INDIE FILM HUSTLE WAS CREATED
IT ALL STARTED WITH A LITTLE FILM CALLED "BROKEN"
I get asked a lot by industry friends and colleagues "Alex, why do you spend so much time working on IFH when you have projects, films, and other jobs?"
The answer is simple, I love doing it. Ever since I launched the first-ever guerilla film school back in 2005 with the release of my short film BROKEN I got hooked. The BROKEN DVD had over 3 1/2 hours of tutorials on how to shoot an action film on a budget.
It was the first of its kind. There was nothing else like it in the marketplace. I went on to sell over 5000 units of the DVD packing and shipping them from them in my bedroom.
I was humbled by the response from indie filmmakers from around the world. Ever since then I always wanted to continue helping filmmakers and Indie Film Hustle was born.
