Word On the Street
Alex navigated the murky and misunderstood world that sits between entertainment companies and advertising agencies.
Whilst doing so she developed highly creative solutions that blended the needs of both without compromising either. Alex is a creative and original thinker who operates in a humble manner, a welcome smile on her face and a can-do attitude.
She taught me so much about the entertainment industry, for that I am very grateful. I enjoyed working with her and you will too.
Giles Rhys Jones, 'What 3 Words', RSA Fellow
One of the best people I have ever worked with - and with that spectacularly rare combination of creative talent and real make-things-happen energy.
Rory Sutherland, Vice Chairman, Ogilvy Group
As a writer-director, I've had the pleasure of working with Alex for over 7 years on a number of different projects and aside from her disarmingly charming nature, what always surprises me is the level of creative thinking she is capable of.
Her passion for her work means she gets under the skin of every brief, which in turn allows her to give excellent direction across the project in hand. Her long list of top clients are always happy with her results and any team taking her on would be all the richer.
Freddie Hutton Mills, Genesis Films
I want to say a big "Thank you' for the 'I Wish' film you produced for us. You captured so beautifully the journey of our customers and all the work that goes into making every house someone's home.
I appreciate not only the hard work you put into this but your real ability to capture the Berkeley story. We have since had lots of requests from people wanting to show the film to their family and friends.
I was very proud when the film was played at our conference.
Paul Vallone, Divisional Managing Director, Berkeley St Edward Chairman.
I worked with Alex for several years at Ogilvy & Mather where we both had management roles
And subsequently working with charities I turned to Alex and her production company Contented Brands, when I needed high end quality and value for money filmed content.
She gave us super scripts and an excellent level of comprehensive film production services Simply put the films looked great and were really effective.
And throughout I had the reassuring certainty that I was in the very safe hands if a serious category leader with heavyweight resources - who knew how to deliver on a tight budget.
Graeme Robertson, Chairman Dogs Trust
Alex is, quite literally, an incredible person to work with.
She was able to look over everything and provide constructive insight to things I would never notice on my own, while still bringing my vision to life. Out of all the editors I’ve worked with, she is by far the most organized and consistent, quickly delivering a product without any quality loss.
Dominic Guidry, Director 'Bystander'
Contented Brands created by far the most watchable, powerful films I commissioned at Berkeley. They were brilliantly produced and emotionally intelligent, all of which tells you a lot about Alex. She's a fabulous project director. Superb at client management.
Great with your customers and residents. And a really fun, empathetic human being.
