New York Film Academy (NYFA) BFA Filmmaking alum Alex Kahuam has been hard at work since completing his degree studies and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. Recently, Kahuam was profiled by Hollywood-area publication VoyageLA for his work as an independent filmmaker.
Kahuam first attended NYFA’s Burbank-based campus in 2012, studying for his AFA in Filmmaking degree. He followed that in 2015 by enrolling in NYFA’s BFA in Filmmaking program.
The Mexican-born filmmaker has been making movies since a class project in the fifth grade. Years later, he made his second feature film, So, You Want To Be A Gangster?, producing it in Los Angeles with professional equipment and sets, and an experienced cast and crew. The film is now available on VOD, including Amazon Prime, Google Play, Microsoft Store, PlayStation Store, VUDU, Steam and others.
Kahuam recently finished production on his third feature, Forgiveness, a co-production between the United States and Mexico. Additionally, he’s shot several short films and music videos.
“It’s been 14 years of not giving up and keep moving forward,” Kahuam tells VoyageLA. “I will say it again—it’s all about the three P’s: patience, persistence, and passion.”
New York Film Academy congratulates BFA Filmmaking alum Alex Kahuam on the well-deserved recognition he is gaining for his hard work, and looks forward to following his filmmaking career as it develops!
