Launch Your Storytelling Journey
Join the INDIE FILM SYNDICATE
Syndicate [noun sin-di-kit]: a group of talented individuals working together to achieve or carry out a specific goal. (Yup that's exactly what we are.)
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 a indie film but also how to market and sell it as well. Access that gives you an interactive front row seat to the ENTIRE filmmaking process.
We have create a rare look behind the curtain (warts and all) on how we are making our micro budget indie feature film THIS IS MEG starring Jill-Michele Meleán (Popstar, Reno 911, MadTV).
Through video lessons, case studies, podcasts, and interactive webinars we’ll teach you how to navigate the independent film world and make your own micro budget feature film.

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.
