About the director

Alex Taylor is a musician and composer who changed career in 2009 to direct his first short movie, KIDS MIGHT FLY, which won the Jury Prize from Film London, the Special Jury Award at SXSW, and several awards in Europe. He was shortlisted as a writer for Kevin Spacey's New Voices award in 2009.
