Hi. My name is Alec Kubas-Meyer. I'm a writer/editor/critic/filmmaker based in New York City.
In my time writing on the internet, I have focused on two areas: film and video games. As far as film writing goes, I'm currently Editor-at-Large at Flixist, which is my primary outlet.
I sometimes write about technology too, usually for the Explora blog run by B&H, though I mostly write about video games there as well.
My other big passion is filmmaking. I write, direct, shoot, edit, act, whatever. My most recently completed project is a drama short called Not Too Young, which premiered in 2016 at the Women Texas Film Festival. I'm also in the final throes of post-production on Reel, a martial arts short film that was funded in large part by a successful Kickstarter campaign, which I wrote the pitch for. I also have a feature-length script in the works for Daylight, a horror film. (All this and more in the "Film" tab.)
When not directing, I'm usually behind the camera, and I have served as director of photography on several shorts. I also work as a freelance videographer, filming live events such as concerts, lectures, plays, and other performances.
A promise (And I don't take those lightly)
It's a general truism that you're supposed to fake it until you make it, no matter what it is you're doing. I don't like faking it. I don't like being dishonest. So everything you see here is straight from the heart, for better or worse. Whether it's portfolio-related or something on my blog, I won't troll, lie, or even stretch the truth, because that doesn't do either of us any good. And if you find what I have to say annoying? Well, then you probably won't like me, and I'm sorry to hear that... But this is my website, and this is me.
Make of that what you will.
