Hi! I'm Alec! I'm a filmmaker and photographer from Freeport Maine. When I'm not behind the lens, I enjoy spending my time outdoors skiing and hiking with my friends and family. Growing up in Maine, I developed an appreciation for nature which serves in part as an inspiration in my films.
When it comes to my films, I work mainly in a traditional style. Most recently, I’ve been focusing on works which are apolitical in nature and serve as an escape from the fast pace of daily life. My films ask the viewer to slow down and examine a person, topic, or event which they may find interesting.
I grew up watching classics such as The Twilight Zone and The Sound of Music, which I feel are good examples of the style I strive for in my own work.
With my most recent film, Fish Outta’ Wood, I focused on the relationship between nature and a man’s desire to represent it through art. This required the exploration of his lifelong connection to the outdoors and his entry into the art world.
Looking towards the future, I can see myself in a position which is related to the skiing industry. Skiing is an activity I’ve been privileged to partake in and is something which I would enjoy working with on a daily basis.
