About Alex

I'm Alex. I've been in the film industry for over 20 years and have worked on over 1000 feature films, shorts, commercials, music videos, network promos, documentaries and webisodes. My personal films have been screened in 500+ film festivals around the world.

Many filmmakers have walked through my doors over the years and I have had the pleasure of a front row seat to see how all these projects start and finish. I've worked with Sundance and Academy Award™ winners as well as the beginning film student. Some projects make it and many never see the light of day.

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 sometime 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. The industry is abusive to the new comer and I hope I can help you navigate the shark infested waters.
