Earning a scholarship to Central Film School London, Alexander honed his skills writing, directing, producing and editing. His works include the short film ‘Collide’, starring Andrew Paul from British television show ‘The Bill’ and ‘Pawn & Rook’, shot on 16mm film. His training also included time spent in New York at David Mamet and William H. Macy’s acting school, The Actors Studio and the Lee Strasburg School, helping equip an understanding of the various techniques for directing a performance. His short ‘Wimp’, was the opening film screened at graduation and was nominated for Best Director, Best Film and student of the year.
In 2011, while still at college, Alexander opened Matchbox Productions as a porthole into creating future work. Then, at the age of 23, Alexander gathered investors to back his first independent feature film, ‘The Telemachy’, a modern re-telling of Homer’s Odyssey. It was filmed on location in the UK and Greece, while post-production took place at Pinewood Studios.
