Alex Child

Writer

In 2016 Alex signed a first look deal with BBC Drama and in 2017 signed blind script deals with both Legendary Entertainment and NBC Universal to write original dramas. Alex has also been commissioned previously by the likes of Drama Republic and Euston Films in the UK. He cut his teeth writing for the BBC’s Holby City.

Alex currently has two features in development with the BFI, both of which are looking to go into production next year. He set up Sonic Screenworks as a home and production company for his feature film scripts and he plans to start directing soon.

In the noughties he spent time writing and performing music with various bands and artists. In 2008 he released single River Phoenix on Autonomy Records which was A-Listed on XFM for 6 weeks and received spot plays on Radio One from Zane Lowe, Annie Mac and Hew Stephens. His album Shortcuts was favourably reviewed in Clash, NME, Time Out and Music Weekly.

Alex also featured on the critically acclaimed album Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You by Does It Offend You Yeah released on Cooking Vinyl. Alex’s songs have been remixed by Jack Beats and Dirtyphonics. Alex toured with and supported acts including DIOYY, N.E.R.D, The Maccabees, Killa Kela, The Streets, Busta Rhymes, MIA, Example and The Kooks and performed at Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds Festivals, Coachella, Miami Music Conference, Isle de MTV, and Secret Garden Party.

Alex is also a CELTYL qualified English teacher and taught English to foreign learners in Greece for a year.
