Alex Aalbers

Alex found a passion for filmmaking while in high school with ComTech, and Tech Theatre, which allowed for Alex to discover a love for filmmaking and ultimately make the decision to go to SAIT. Throughout this program, Alex has found a passion for being a Script Supervisor, as well as enjoying the Art Department and the Lighting Department. Alex also had the opportunity to write and direct the production, ‘Ashes to Ashes’, and has since gained an additional passion for those roles as well. Throughout attending SAIT, Alex has learned so much about what goes on behind the camera, and with this new knowledge of filmmaking, has been able to appreciate films and understand the work that goes into productions. After graduation, with passions for both Film and Radio, Alex will be taking RTBN here at SAIT this September, and will be majoring in Radio.


Alex’s top five favourite movies are Bumblebee (2018), Christine (1983), Ready Player One (2018), Baby Driver (2017), and Hot Fuzz (2007).
