Launch Your Storytelling Journey


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. Without a seasoned professional to guide you, and peers to provide feedback and referrals, filmmakers can spend years spinning their wheels.

But imagine if you had exclusive access to what it really takes to not only write, shoot and post an indie film but also how to market and sell it as well. Access that gives you an interactive front row seat to the filmmaking process.

In the IFH Masters Circle, you will have access to over 60 online courses covering: Directing, Screenwriting, Cinematography, Film Distribution, Marketing, Film Budgeting, Visual Effects, Freelancing, Social Media Marketing, and Audience Building.

Alex Ferrari

Hi, 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 600+ 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.

You'll find my approach to my courses a bit raw and real. That's because I care about my students, 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.
