- Bio: My Name is Alex James Gilbert. I am 20 Years old. My hobbies include Gaming, reading, but my true passion lies in film making. Here is an introduction to my self. My first film experience was at the age of 6 when I saw the re release of Empire strikes back, which made me want to make films of my own. After that I was always picking up my dads video camera and making films with my old star wars figures. Throughout school my passion and enjoyment for film continued. I went to a production company called DLA productions for my work experience, spending 2 weeks there filming the Lichfield festival. I did multiple jobs whilst I was there, starting as a runner, setting up the equipment, to then operating the cameras on two occasions during live performances. After I left school I went to Burton College, where I attended 3 years and two courses. The first was a 1st diploma in television and film, then a National/extended diploma in Television and film course. While at college I kept busy outside of coursework. Attending the British Youth Film academy on two occasions to make a feature films. The first film was a modern day adaption of Julius Caesar. My roles where both in the camera department and assistant script supervisor. The following year I worked again in the camera department for the modern day adaption of Henry IV part 2. I also attended 7 weeks work experience at a local production company called Iceni TV, who make adverts such as Everest windows and the frosty Jacks promotional adverts which I took part in the editing. I am now currently on my first year studying a Television Production Technology course at Staffordshire University. Whilst being at university I have attended the 63rd Berlinale film festival as part of the Film society and have set up my own small production company called RLB productions where I am the lead editor, to continue my passion in filmmaking.
