Alex Kinter - A Versatile Artist

“Motion graphics these days are a huge part of post-production. The demand is high for branded cinematic content with a cohesive edge to match the rest of companies content.

 These are the words of a versatile artist, Alex Kinter...

“ I’ve wanted to make films and work with the medium since I was a little kid. My attempt was really about seeing if I had a knack for it as well as to learn how lighting worked in order to one day be able to get involved with production and advertising fields.” Alex Kinter says.

“ It all started in high school during junior year whenever I had to take a photography class because the video production class was always full and couldn’t ever get in. A buddy of mine in photo class showed me this up and coming fine art and ad photographer in his twenties that had moved out to LA with basically nothing and was stirring things up by crossing over in to obscure video portraits. His name was Tyler Shields. Then I bought a film camera and a Nikon D70 digital SLR camera and started trying to figure out how light, exposure and depth of field worked by shooting various portraits of my musician friends and when they played live shows.” He adds.

Alex Kinter was born and raised in Cali, Colombia and moved to Florida with his mother at the age of 5. Alex's father was a regional manager for a chain of furniture rental stores which led the family to move to Texas because of a change in the workplace with his father. Alex had an interest for action sports and the arts from an early age. He was soon heavily engaged in graphics, computers, and web development. Since the video courses were always full, Alex took up Photography during his junior year which led to an early start to lighting and composition.
