The guru of Services Drafts Alexander Jones Hi! My name is AJ, I’m a freelance filmmaker who loves telling stories, being creative and collaborating to make cinematic magic happen.My strengths lie in Scriptwriting, Creative Directing, Video Editing and Acting. I’m a creative guy, I spend both my free time and my time on the clock working on storytelling as well as the whole filmmaking process.I have studied 2 and a half years at the New Zealand Broadcasting School and now have a degree in Film and Television. I completed a six month internship at Tait Communications + stayed on an extra 3 months to help finish off a few projects.My experience at Tait has made me very savvy with corporate video, things like interviews, promotional videos, in-plain-english animations and educational material. Since leaving Tait I have filmed and edited for several well known companies, such as Harcourts, McDonald’s, Fifa, Microsoft and I am also the go-to film guy for My Milk Ltd, a subsidiary of Fonterra.My passions lie in the more creative side of filmmaking, I love telling stories through writing, directing and video editing. I have written and directed a few short films among my friends. My 2014 team for the Royalto Channel 48 hour film festival got runner-up in Christchurch with our short film “Something New”. We also received several awards including “Best Script” and “Best Editing”.For my final project at Broadcasting school, I wrote, directed, produced and edited a 20 minute Sitcom pilot called “Stubble”.I run a Youtube webseries called “Cult Popture”, where myself and a few friends discuss different aspects of the media. I write, direct and edit most of the episodes.
