LEX Productions was founded by Alexandra Lexton in 1998. The company develops and produces art house style films and documentaries, including those written by Ms. Lexton.
After graduating from Whitman College in the Pacific Northwest, Alex worked as an intern Production Assistant for the Department of Current Affairs at Seattle’s PBS station KCTS. Here she wrote copy for television, conducted interviews, and edited tape.
Alex’s first job in Los Angeles, assistant to three producers and a director of a television film, led to the next position of Assistant to the Director John Patterson (director of many Sopranos, Law and Order and numerous television films).
When Mr. Patterson got a contract at NBC for a series pilot, Alex became the Director of Development for his company, Enuff, Inc.
From there she moved into a job at RKO Pictures where she functioned as a Production Executive. Her rewrite of the screenplay Digger resulted in Olympia Dukakis’s involvement and the final financing for the film. The film also starred Leslie Nielsen and Joshua Jackson. As the Co-Producer, she assumed a mostly creative role involving casting, rewrites, and overseeing the production from pre-production through post.
As Production Executive on her next film, Red Scorpion 2, Alex had some first-time opportunities, when she acted as a camera operator and directed one of the film’s scenes.
When Red Scorpion wrapped, Alex worked for Polygram Filmed Entertainment as a Marketing Associate.
During a break from Hollywood, Alex presented a course on film production at the International Academy of Broadcasting in Montreux, Switzerland.
Back in Los Angeles, Alex served as Director of Development at Fries Entertainment, overseeing projects through all phases of development and production.
Since 1998, Alex has been shadowing her two sons, as well as writing, producing/directing film projects, speaking engagements, finishing a master's degree, teaching screenplay and creative writing , establishing Pacific Filmmakers' Forum and pursuing opportunities for LEX Productions.
