Alex takes much of his inspiration from contemporary urban culture, bad graffiti, street ephemera and the analogue video and film effects from the past. He's fascinated by the causal, chaotic, homemade and unexpected in art, surfing and life.
He was introduced to film making through the amateur Super8 and VHS movies as he made traveling and surfing. This eventually led to directing music videos, commercials, short documentaries and other film-related work like title design, motion graphics and creative / art direction roles. Always interested in process and discovery, Alex has worked in many mediums including painting, drawing, photography and a variety of film making styles and techniques.
