ABOUT ALEX

(they/she/surprise!)

An MFA graduate of UCLA’s prestigious Producer’s Program, Alexandra Creswick was most recently Vice President of Development and Production for Paradox Studios.  While there she oversaw the company’s entire development slate, consisting of both film and TV projects, and was responsible for sourcing new material and talent, overseeing projects in all states of production, and evaluating preexisting IP for adaptation from sister company AMBI Films’ extensive library. While at Paradox she was an Associate Producer on Mark Steven Johnson’s Finding Steve McQueen, and was the Development & Production Executive on Black Butterfly and Trading Paint.

Previously, she worked as Director of Development for BiFrost Pictures and John Ptak at Arsenal film as Creative Director, learning the intricacies of the foreign financing market and liaising closely with Untitled Entertainment. While with BiFrost, she worked as the development executive on several projects including Paul Bettany’s directorial debut Shelter, starring Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Mackie, and Don Cheadle’s Miles Ahead, on which she served as an Associate Producer.

She has produced numerous short films and the hit webseries School of Thrones and Muzzled the Musical. Her short film Emit, starring Heroes alum Jack Coleman, has been well received at many film festivals, including SciFi London, NBCU’s Diversity Showcase, Fantasia International Film Festival, and aired on PBS as part of their 2014 Shorts Showcase.


In 202, Alex produced their first indie feature The Blackout, written and directed by Daniela de Carlo and starring an incredible, diverse cast of up-and-coming talent, released by Gravitas in 2020. You can watch it on Amazon Prime! In 2021, they shot the incredibly poignant short film Weak, written and directed by JS Mayank, starring Katherine Castro and Bridget Reagan. Look for it on the festival circuit in 2022!

Alex is currently an independent development consultant and producer, and looking forward to hearing how we might be able to work together!

SENSITIVITY READING & DIVERSITY EDITING

Similar to the concept of hiring real doctors to consult on a medical show, Sensitivity Readers can offer insights in culture and world building that can help writers ensure characters from marginalized or unique backgrounds are represented authentically, fairly, and without falling into stereotype.
