Alex has directed three short films that have screened at international film festivals. His “Blank Shores” screenplay won the Grand Prize in the Vortex Horror/Sci-Fi category at the Oscar- and BAFTA-affiliated Flickers’ Rhode Island International Screenplay Competition. Additionally, it was a finalist in the 2018 Global Script Challenge at the Oaxaca FilmFest. The screenplay was awarded funding by the BFI Network and attracted the attention of BAFTA-winning Georgina Campbell to play the leading role.
The emotionally raw short film “White Awake” showcased at NewFilmmakers Los Angeles and the TriForce Film Festival in London, winning Best BAME Short Film and Best Cinematography in the FILMSshort competition.
From London, Alex moved to Vancouver to study Film Production at the University of British Columbia. There he directed his student film “Spiked”, and worked on numerous other film productions, gaining hands-on experience with 16mm film. After graduation, he worked on the visual effects of several feature films including “Night at the Museum” at Method Vancouver and – on his return to London – “Dark Shadows” at MPC. Progressing to narrative filmmaking, Alex directed several story-driven music promos and commercial projects.
Attracted to visceral filmmaking, Alex is passionate about stories that explore mental health issues and outsider characters. He is looking to direct feature-length films and television dramas.
