Born and raised in White Plains, Alabama with no theatre or drama department in sight, Alex McFry wrangled his closest friends and a DSLR camera into a basement to create movies. When they all got to high school, The Adventures of McDorky was born as a way for Alex and all those around him to express themselves through characters born from his imagination.

While attending Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, Alabama, Alex dabbled in journalism, art, and theatre, only to come back to his one true love—movies. By creating his own degree at a university that didn't have a film program, he was able to utilize all the skills he had learned to accomplish his goal: film school. 

Having most recently graduated as a producing specialist with his MFA in Production at Florida State University's College of Motion Picture Arts, Alex spearheaded four 15-minute short films, each with influences of four different nationalities with stories from four very different backgrounds. In total, he crewed over 30 films in every position including director, producer, 1st AD, 2nd AD, director of photography, 1st AC, 2nd AC, key grip, BBE, gaffer, and editor to name a few. He currently lives in Los Angeles, California and plans to continue telling stories of those underrepresented in entertainment.
