Alex Coffey is an LA transplant advancing in the film industry since 2012 as a producer and production manager in film, TV, commercial, documentary, and web-based media. Filmmaking is his favorite vehicle to learn about and affectively capture stories of enigmatic individuals and social issues. He comes to the role of Film2Future’s Head of Production with multiple summers under his belt as a production supervisor for the program. Prowess as a producer has provided an opportunity to share his knowledge and passion with the next generation of Los Angeles filmmakers.
In 2020, Alex teamed up with Disney’s Launchpad program, producing for six diverse directors on issues of race, gender, and inequality. Other recent accolades include supervising a live comedy series for Netflix, producing for high-end commercial clients like TOMY, Mattel, and Barefoot Wine, as well as production managing the New York Times Critic’s Pick feature “The 11th Green,” also selected by the New Yorker as one of 2020’s top films. In 2019, he line produced Lagueria Davis’s Outfest standout short “Light in Dark Places,” eventually short-listed for the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film. Alex’s roots in nonprofit stem in part from his time on staff with the documentary production company One Day on Earth (2012-2015), peaking with their PBS series “One Day in the American City,” an introspective piece on the social and economic state of urban spaces.
The last nine years have proven Los Angeles to be a powerful presence in Alex’s life. The city’s inequity – often perpetuated by the film industry itself – is a huge motivator for him to make a positive difference, now with Film2Future. In addition to film, he draws further inspiration from exploring culinary corners across LA, banging on drums, and frequenting the local wilderness to appreciate birds and nature.
