“This girl is so good she really- Sir Trevor Robinson
belongs in Hollywood.”
By working up through the grades in the film industry in the process gaining an incomparable technical knowledge. By being the first British female focus-puller to work on big £10 million plus movies (the head of the British Film Institute said she made an art of focus pulling). By graduating top of her cinematography class at the National Film & Television School, London. By clients and agency, noticing her empathy and ability to generate strong natural performances, catapulting her into a directing career.
Alex prefers not to be constrained by always working in a particular genre. Her desire as a creative professional is never to stop learning so she embraces projects that engage or challenge her, be they big or small budgets. You might find her perched on a crane beside a 35mm Panaflex but equally, recently, she’s excited by the potential and intimacy of shooting off the cuff with an iPhone.
You should know her for her great eye that never misses a good take, for her mastery of seizing the unguarded moment, the turn on the beat, that fleeting expression. All projects will benefit from her extensive industry experience, her strong visual style and her intuitive understanding of humanity and narrative, born of years with her eye glued to the viewfinder.
“So use her for your next project.
Before she answers the call of Hollywood!”
