Helen McMahon, Programme Director of Screenleaders EU, Programme Director 3D Cinema in Europe, MEDIA | FAS Screen Training Ireland / 3D Cinema in Europe
Alexander was a guest speaker this year on our 3D Cinema in Europe Course that is funded by the MEDIA Programme of the EU and Screen Training Ireland. He was a joy to have involved in the programme, his knowledge of 3D is so relevant to what is currently happening in the industry. He expertise is without question, his openness and presentation of the topic is impeccable. He was very generous with his knowledge and also extremely helpful navigating the technical setup of the 3D examples. He is also the first person I have come across that does his entire PowerPoint in 3D, which really helped translating the information for participants with examples. I can recommend him to anyone running a training programme or providing consultation.
Aarne Norberg, Independent Filmmaker, Producer, Director, Writer & Consultant | Aalto University Helsinki
Alexander has profound knowledge on stereoscopic 3D film production and he is an excellent lecturer of the subject. I have attended his S3D seminar in Dublin as well as organized one in Helsinki for Aalto University, School of Art and Design – Department of Motion Picture, Television and Production Design. I regard Alexander as a pleasant person and esteemed colleague who has great affection for filmmaking, especially in S3D format. From my experience I can frankly recommend his stereoscopic 3D expertise for my colleagues
Chris Curtis, Director | Passion Pictures
I am very pleased to recommend Alexander after I hired him as a Stereographer on my commercial for Audi – “A Day in the Life of an Audi Driver”. He came highly recommend to me after giving a talk to our CGI crew here at Passion Pictures. As this commercial was the company’s first major foray into stereo work we needed someone with a complete and all round knowledge of both the technical and creative processes involved, from start to finish. Alex more than exceeded my expectations in both of these fields. Both with his technical overseeing of the pre viz in Maya to the final realisation in XSi and guiding our crew Creatively he has a great combination of knowing what will look great but also how to push the boundary’s in stereo.
