WELCOME TO INDIE FILM HUSTLE

LET'S GET INTO WHAT INDIE FILM HUSTLE IS ALL ABOUT

.

I'm Alex. I've been in the film industry for over 20 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.

Why Are Filmmakers Always So Broke?

7 STEPS TO BECOMING A SUCCESSFUL FILMMAKER

.

These 7 steps were taken from one of my most downloaded podcast I ever record. 

I'm was tired of seeing my fellow indie filmmakers and artist struggle to make a living doing what they love. I decided to put together a list of steps that every indie filmmaker needs to do in order to thrive in the film business.

 

Since this website is called INDIE FILM HUSTLE the terminology I’ll be using will be aimed at filmmaking or screenwriting but all of these concepts can be applied to any art form.

 

  1. Have a Plan
  2. Learn as Much about Every Aspect of Making a Film as You Can

  3. Show Up Every day

  4. Learn Branding, Audience Building, and Marketing

  5. Become an Entrepreneur

  6. Don’t Give Up

  7. Work and Hustle

 

You can read the entire article and listen to the podcast below. If there's one podcast of mine you listen to this is the one. I break down each step in detail. I use some "colorful" language in this episode but the information is solid. Enjoy!

POWER TO THE INDIE FILMMAKER

SELF DISTRIBUTE YOUR FEATURE OR SHORT FILM & KEEP 100% OF THE PROFITS
Distribber is an aggregator for iTunes, Hulu, Amazon, VuDu, Netflix, GooglePlay, Cable VOD and many more. As an aggregator, they work to receive, repair, conform, package, and deliver your film to the outlets you have chosen.  Once your film is packaged, Distribber will deliver all assets into our partner portals to go live. Filmmakers have complete control over release dates, updates, removals, the list goes on. I self-distributed my film This is Meg through Distribber and they were amazing to work with.
(FULL DISCLOSURE: I do recieve a small commission if you choose to use Distribber. There's no extra charge to you. This helps keep Indie Film Hustle going.)

The road to becoming an indie filmmaker can seem daunting with everything there is to learn. There are nuances and tricks that take years to learn through trial and error.
