On today’s show we are joined by none other than Alex Ferrari, a micro-budget filmmaker and true hustler – known widely for his popular filmmaking podcast Indie Film Hustle. After 20 years in the film business, Alex turned to micro-budget filmmaking as a means to take control over his own destiny and bring his feature narrative projects to life once and for all. This has culminated in the creation of two feature films over the past two years: This Is Meg, and On The Corner Of Ego And Desire.
Over the course of the interview, Alex uses his film Meg as a case study, outlining the exact steps he took to get the film made, premiere at Cinequest, and eventually license the film to Hulu. Topics covered include: Working from a scriptment, casting known actors, handling post-production on your own, navigating the festival circuit, finding distribution on major VOD platforms, and much more.

Thanks Noam for this interview. Really enjoyed it. When you were discussing distribution services – Quiver , etc – Alex mentioned another service but didn’t catch the name – do you remember? Thanks – Mark
Yes, he was referring to Distribber. They are quite popular, but definitely do some research on both before deciding!
