With a broad range of experience, including VR and 360, I currently specialise in short form content. Clients have included Google, Lexus, Mini and Lloyds Banking Group. Drawing on my production and directing experience, I try to bring a calm and easy-going nature to the edit. I work on both Avid and Premiere Pro using Audition for audio sweetening and basic mixing and After Effects for motion graphics and basic VFX work. I’m comfortable colour grading on both systems and Da Vinci Resolve.
AWARDS include British Short Film Festival Best Experimental Short, BFI Script Development Grant for “Filament” and grants from Arts Council England.
Broad skill set including directing, editing, Virtual Reality, tapeless workflows, ISIS storage, DVCAM, compositing, grading, chroma keying, motion tracking, animation (2D & 3D), visual effects and storyboarding using Avid 8.0, After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, Photoshop and Da Vinci Resolve.
Training includes AVID support on AVID systems.
“Alex is that rare breed of editor – the kind that sees his technical skills (of which he has in abundance) as a means to tell a story, not the sum total of his contribution. Meaning, he possesses a maturity in creativity that seeks elegance without showing-off. His aim is to help the client communicate – and to do it very well. His understanding of visual grammar is instinctive and his empathy for the story at the heart of any material is intuitive. He’s meticulous, passionate and imaginative – lifting the starchiest of corporate messaging to a place of human originality. His understanding of rhythm and pace works in harmony with his gutsy connection with music – seeing and hearing the poetry of moments as they unfold. At the core of his talent is his ability to forge clarity in any job – meeting the brief is where it’s at for Alex. Quite simply – Alex cares about what he does, because he’s a very fine man indeed, and… he’s a damn good laugh too.” Grant Fulton Writer/Creative Director
