A Letter From Alex
Creator, Founder, CEO
My passion for the camera and performance-based storytelling is rooted deep in my childhood. While my first summer job was in photography, I discovered the stage as a small child, eventually leading me to attend Dramatic Arts university where I majored in Performance, but diversified my artistic vision to include Directing, Collaborative Production, Writing, and eventually my love for creation in Filmmaking.
While I have taken new steps to not just perform in stories but to learn to create them, I continue to pursue my own passion in performance, expanding from the stage to screen both in education and credentials, as well as expand my entrepreneurial horizons and already eclectic skill set. Outside of my creative pursuits, I have experience in a wide variety of businesses, including technology, insurance, sales, customer service, restaurants, management, and design.
My diverse set of abilities, passion for filmmaking, photography, design, and storytelling, and a desire to integrate drama and technology led to the creation of Waking World Productions in 2014. What started as freelance videography and creative event visuals, evolved into my mission to create provocative & visually stimulating content, and engaging stories that are professionally edited with the utmost care, technically, intellectually, and emotionally.
Through the creation of visually and psychologically engaging media, I seek to explore our place in society in compelling and truthful ways. By navigating the realities, frailties, and ironies of the human condition, I strive to tell stories that are majorly character-driven, and explore complex moral concepts & dilemmas affecting both widespread and niche populations. And being proudly Canadian, my filmmaking explores our national identity through snapshots of our culture’s music, people, and scenery.
