Your instructor:

Alex Ferrari has been working in the film industry for over 25 years and is the founder of Indie Film Hustle. He became a whistleblower and exposed Distribber, a film aggregator who owed film producers millions of dollars. Since their closure they also left thousands of filmmaker's without access to their films.

He kept hearing story after story of how filmmakers were being taken advantage of by predatory film distributors so he decided to put together a course explaining the pitfalls filmmakers face when trying to get their films distributed through the legacy distribution model. It is his mission to help filmmakers survive and thrive in the film business.
