Documentary filmmaker, Alex J. Wright, works internationally alongside companies and individuals who practise outstanding craftsmanship by hand.

In pursuit of unique stories, he’s spent 6 days and 7 miles underground at Fauld mine, filming the extraction of Leicester Cathedral’s alabaster; had his work broadcast worldwide during the making of King Richard III’s Tomb; captured pioneering orthopaedic operations live in theatre; followed the creation of a new chandelier for The Mercers Company made from antique chandelier glass discovered by chance in their vaults; and was fortunate to film with Sir David Attenborough and Nigel Slater for his documentary about renowned British studio potter Richard Batterham, which premiered in London last year.

He’s developed a reputation for his naturalistic sensitive approach to filmmaking which allows his subjects the space to focus on their work and gives his audiences the feeling of being right there with him.
