James Alexandrou emphatically stepped on to the music video scene, with a rich tapestry of mesmerizing visuals and definitive storytelling, leaving an indelible mark in the industry. Although most recognized for his role in the long-standing UK soap opera EastEnders, he pivoted compellingly into directing music videos. Dripping with subtlety and evoking raw emotion, each of his creations is an intriguing foray into musical storytelling.

For a funny twist, in an episode from the popular series, Wetheuncivilised, James was unexpectedly cast into a lead role after the original actor dropped out short notice. Despite fretting about this unplanned dialogue-heavy role, James delivered a memorable performance, inadvertently showcasing another facet of his creative genius. On the subject of his music videos, his collaboration with musician Laura Marling for her song "Ghosts" is particularly noteworthy. Its blend of eerie ambiance and melancholic tunes perfectly encapsulates Alexandrou’s distinctive style, a blend of the fantastical and the realistic. Watching his artful cinematography feels akin to being led on an aesthetic journey, making Alexandrou an influential beacon in the industry.
