Alexa Caravia is a visual storyteller dedicated to revealing and understanding culture and connection through narrative cinematography. In the last 15 years, she’s shot a breadth of films, documentaries and commercials on location across five continents and has co-produced television series and video content for international organizations and clients in the travel, tourism and fashion industries. Throughout her career, she’s produced a wide range of content for distribution across international, national, and local media platforms.
The bulk of this experience has served to enhance her technical faculties and has culminated in a far greater lesson: it’s taught her to be a kinder human being and consequently, a stronger storyteller.
Alexa received an MFA in Cinematography from NYU Tisch School of the Arts Asia in 2010 and has garnered international recognition for her narrative and documentary work.
When Alexa is not shooting, producing or traveling, she works as an educator. She recently consulted for the International Center for Journalists, creating a curriculum of training sessions, workshops and immersions on video tools, data collection, and cinematic storytelling techniques for visiting Cuban journalists to inspire insightful video reporting that triggers better governments, economies and societies.
She is currently shortlisted for a storytelling consultancy with the UN-Habitat Global Future Cities Programme in Nairobi.
