ALEX R. JOHNSON is a Austin, TX based filmmaker.

Johnson studied film theory and writing at the University of Vermont before moving to New York City in 1993. Since that time, he has worked steadily in the film and commercial industry, working his way up from Production Assistant to Executive Producer in only six years.

His collaboration with Henry Corra, SAME SEX AMERICA, a feature length documentary about the battle for gay marriage in Massachusetts, premiered on SHOWTIME in June of 2005 and was called  ”(A) heartfelt and moving documentary” (Chicago Tribune) that “…sets a standard that will be hard to match” (Variety).

More recently, he produced I AM SECRETLY AN IMPORTANT MAN, a new feature length documentary for director Pete Sillen.  That film premiered in 2010 at the MoMA and the IFC Center in New York. It is now available on VOD and iTunes.

His short films, PICKUP AND RETURN and THANKSGIVING have screened at festivals worldwide. The BFI London Film Festival said THANKSGIVING was “a bittersweet and darkly funny tale of urban isolation” while the Florida Film Festival called it “hilariously melancholy”.

He’s had feature screenplays invited to both The Hampton’s International Film Festival’s Screenwriter’s Lab as well as IFP’s Emerging Narrative Lab.

Having directed music videos (The Wooden Birds, Goldmund) TWO STEP marks his feature film debut.
