Alex Gilbert

Alex’s first film experience was at the age of 6 when he saw the re release of Empire Strikes Back, which inspired him to want to make films of his own. His passion and enjoyment for film continued throughout his school years. He worked with a production company called DLA productions for his work experience, spending 2 weeks filming the Lichfield festival. Jobs while on this work placement included being a runner, setting up the equipment and operating the cameras on two occasions during live performances.

After leaving school, Alex attended Burton College, where he completed 2 courses over a 3 year period. The first was a 1st Diploma in Television and Film, followed by a National/Extended Diploma in Television and Film. While at college he kept busy with extra-curricular work, including attending the British Youth Film Academy on two occasions to participate in the making of 2 feature films. The first film was a modern day adaption of Julius Caesar. His roles where both in the camera department and assistant script supervisor. The following year, Alex worked again in the camera department for the modern day adaption of Henry IV part 2.

Alex is currently on his first year of studying on a Television Production Technology course at Staffordshire University. Whilst at university, he attended the 63rd Berlinale Film Festival as a member of the university’s Film Society. He has also set up his own small production company called RLB productions, where he acts as the lead editor.
