ALEX is a writer and a director whose work has screened at Rotterdam, American Film Festival (Wroclaw), BAFICI, Belfast, Cucalorus, Bam Cinemafest, New Orleans FF, Vimeo Staff Picks, MUCH Music Awards, Berlin Music Video Awards and more. Moving between narrative fiction, commercials, music videos, and unclassifiable experimental work, his projects are unified by a comedic sensibility combined with an elaborate visual style. Alex has collaborated with the beloved Cocoon Central Dance Team, acclaimed performers like John Early, Reggie Watts, Kate Berlant, Joe Pera, and a slew of talented UCB alums, as well as musical acts like the electronic pop duo PURITY RING. His latest film, SNOWY BING BONGS ACROSS THE NORTH STAR COMBAT ZONE, a mid-length dance comedy space odyssey (a movie) co-directed with Rachel Wolther, premiered at BAMCinemafest in 2017 and has been screening at festivals all over the world. Filmmaker Magazine wrote that Rachel and Alex, "brought an astonishing level of visual invention," and Moveable Feast called it "a film that doesn't immediately adhere to the laws of gravity". Together with Wolther, Alex was named in FILMMAKER MAGAZINE'S 25 NEW FACES OF INDEPENDENT FILM and was selected for the 2018 SUNDANCE SCREENWRITERS LAB, the Sundance Producers Summit, and the IFP Project Forum for their upcoming feature NOBODY NOTHING NOWHERE, a comedy about a non-person named Ruth.
