Rational, reliable, and forward thinking are some of the few things I pride myself on as I approach any project as a producer on a film and throughout different obstacles in life. I am Alexandria Aikens. Born and raised in Illinois to a storyteller and entrepenuer, I work from a creative/managerial mindset. I entered my first year of Columbia College Chicago in 2014 with little to no experience as producer, but being involved on multiple film sets, including practicum shoots, I have learned the do's and don'ts of filmmaking. Preparation, pre-production, scheduling, and persistence being key. I have been producer on the short film Pyramid and two documentaries, Manga Mania and Reading the Roar. I plan to continue to learn and collaborate with multiple filmmakers and artists.
