Here's a bit about the instructor

This course houses a collection of short films by international award winning writer/director Alex Ferrari, founder of Indie Film Hustle. He exploded onto the indie film scene with his break-through film BROKEN.

Shot on a budget of just $8000 and boasting over 100 visual FX shots, BROKEN became an instant indie film classic. He went on to sell over to $90,000 in DVDs by self distributing BROKEN.

He followed up BROKEN with the sweet and spicy film CYN, followed by the adrenalin filled Red Princess Blues (Starring Academy Award® Nominee Robert Forster (Jackie Brown), Richard Tyson (Black Hawk Down), Rachel Grant (James Bond 007)

These films have screened in over 600 international film festivals and have won countless awards around the world.

The critics agree: 

"BROKEN is essentially a demonstration of the mastery of horror imagery and techniques...effective and professional." - Roger Ebert (Chicago SunTimes)
