Alex Theo

Screenwriter, Researcher

United Kingdom

A political scientist and research analyst by training (graduate of KCL, UCL, SOAS, LSJ) turned to screenwriting and TV & Film research and PA.

With an extensive research experience (primarily political and social but also risk and business orientated) in various roles countries mainly from 2004 to 2012, I am now at the beginning of my involvement in screenwriting and TV & film research having thus far 24 credits as a researcher, 9 with Freeform Productions for "A Place in the Sun", Channel 4 and 15 credits from the doc series "Ap to mikro sto Megalo" done in Greece for the Parliament TV network.

As a writer I have 2 credits so far (one 30mins TV doc series episode, one short film), two commissioned works (first draft/final draft) while I ve had a decent response thus far from other unproduced scripts, namely my short script Stasis and my under-development projects Poster Girl (feature) and All Stars Lights Out (feature). I am also the winner of the category award "Best European Eye" at Oaxaca Filmfest Global Script Challenge in 2017.

While continuing working on my script projects I am now looking to join positions within research (primarily) or as a production assistant while I am also looking for collaborations as a writer, primarily in film or TV. Drawing from my diverse and extensive background in research and having a basic idea and experience from doc research, I aim at finding a position that could help me excel my competencies while applying my knowledge and skills. Major experience include non scripted reality (property) show A Place in the Sun for Channel 4 and two major assignments as a researcher for 15 and 13-episode bio and historical doc series for the Greek Broadcasting Corporation (ERT) and the Hellenic Parliament TV network "Vouli Tileorasi".
