About Alex

After a degree in Media, I started working in theatre as an assistant director.

Once in London, I trained for cinema on several aspects of moviemaking. I got a second degree at London St Martin's and a diploma in editing and special effects. After several shorts I worked for TV as a director/producer over ten years, culminating my career as the artistic Director for the big network ESPN..

Eventually I decided to concentrate on my true passion: making films.
But the bills must be paid... so I've been working on music videos, advertising and documentaries.

In 2004 I wrote, directed and produced my first short, 'Murderer Either Way', premiered in Cannes.
In 2005 I worked on a feature documentary, The Silent Voices of Cuba.
In 2007 I directed a play at the National Theatre of La Habana, while working on my short docu-drama 'La Lucha', which finally won Best Documentary in Miami and Silver Prize in San Francisco.
Meanwhile I wrote my first feature, Far From Fidel.
In 2010 I started a collaboration with 80's genre cult actor Bobby Rhodes on several projects, including a mini-web series, 'The Pimp', as featured in Empire.

In 2013 I started writing my second feature, The Essence of Evil and finally, in 2016 'THE BASE', a supernatural psychological thriller/horror movie with its roots into the history of Serbia's traumatic experience of Nazi raids during WWII, selected by the European Genre Forum as one of eight finalists from around Europe.

Currently in pre-production with THE BASE.
