About me
My name is Alex, I am a film editor and devoted storyteller. I have worked on documentary feature films, commercials, music videos and shorts. I was born and raised in London but am fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. Some of my recent work includes: a Spanish version of ‘Running for the Revolution’, a documentary feature film by director Mark Craig, a documentary series trailer by photographer Rankin, a campaign film for AMG with Will.I.AM and a music video with James Arthur for HUNGER TV. I am accustomed to working in agencies on big-budget productions as well as smaller independent projects. I understand the importance of grasping a vision and working to a brief, but that as an editor one is also responsible for filling in any gaps and significantly elevating any project. I am motivated by an innate drive to tell stories, to reframe existing narratives, to criticise, to open dialogue and to foster empathy for other lived experiences through layered characters. ​ I also have a background in filmmaking. I have directed several short documentaries that explore pressing social and political issues through intimate stories. I always strive to question, to capture subtleties and nuances. My films have won awards at film festivals and been screened on television. I think my experience directing has greatly informed my practice as an editor. It has made me understand the vital importance of the relationship between director and editor; that the goal is to foster such synchronicity that, as an editor, you are already fixing a problem the director was about to verbalise. Get in touch, let’s collaborate.
