HEAD OF PRODUCTION

While transitioning into indie film producing, Alex produced commercials, short films, and digital content for companies like Vogue, Viacom, and SNL.
Alex has produced four feature films with a fifth on its way. In early 2019 she took home an Indie Spirit Award for her work on Jim McKay's En El Septimo Dia (On The Seventh Day).

In the summer of 2019 she was both the Writer’s Assistant on The Astronomy Club for Netflix and her mom's Maid of Honor.
In her youth, Lanee’ studied history and worked as a Casting Assistant on projects such as AMC’s Turn, NatGeo’s Killing Kennedy, PBS’ The Abolitionists, and the History Channel’s The Wars.
