Alex Mindt
Director Bio

In the 1990s, Alex Mindt set off on a journey to discover America. He went to every corner of the country, working with rail men, masons, and carpenters in the Midwest, itinerant children in the rural south, movie studio execs and the homeless in Los Angeles, and upper crust old money families of New England. Along the way he teamed up with his longtime collaborator Randall Harvey and together they made the feature film Nowheresville, which won numerous awards and ran for two years on Showtime. Also an author, Alex published several stories, won a Pushcart Prize, and sat down to write the book Male of the Species—the chronicle of the fathers he met and the country he discovered. Male of the Species, which was the “Pick of the Week” in Entertainment Weekly, was a finalist for the PEN/Bingham Award and the William Saroyan Prize.  Alex studied acting at Carnegie-Mellon University and Theatre/Film and Creative Writing at the University of Iowa and Columbia University.  His latest project is OxyContin Blues, a feature film exploring Hollywood’s addiction to pain pills, the pressure of celebrity, and the healing power of friendship.

He moved to Los Angeles while still in his teens and was accepted to study at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. After graduation, he toiled away in industrials and B-grade horror films before finding his place behind the camera as a special effects make-up artist. He then teamed up with his old friend and long time collaborator Alex Mindt to produce the romantic comedy Nowheresville. He is proud and happy to return to his first love with the rich and complex role of Brandon Varitek in OxyContin Blues. Randy also wrote, directed and starred in the short films Beaver Perry and Real Men. He lives with his wife and two children in Seattle, Washington.
