Meet Alexander Freeman of Outcast Productions in South Station

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alexander Freeman.

Alexander, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Ever since I was very young, I have always been a storyteller and I have always had something to say. Having cerebral palsy, I knew that expressing myself would be different than how others communicate but I would make my voice heard. I have been making films since I was fourteen because it is what I was born to do. I loved the cameras, the lights, the performance of actors and the fact that I was capturing a moment in time that would never happen the same way again. Most importantly though, I wanted to get my message to the public. With the support of my parents, teachers and mentors, I eventually earned my BA in Film Production with a concentration in Directing from Emerson College. I am currently an independent filmmaker with my own company, Outcast Productions.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
My journey has not always been a smooth one. I started college off at Fitchburg State University because after high school my grades were not where they should have been due to standardized testing. I transferred to UMass Amherst after a year intending to study film production and was told that they did not have a film production major. I majored in communication and worked as hard as I could to raise my GPA all the while making my films on the side and then transferred to Emerson College.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Outcast Productions – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Outcast Productions produces and distributes high quality short video content and feature documentaries for the web and DVD. We specialize in topics such as disability, sexuality, race, poverty, substance abuse and women’s rights in order to engage, educate and encourage our viewers to take part in changing how people perceive and treat minorities in society. What sets us apart from other production companies is that we focus on the stories of people who are on the fringe of society and often ignored. All of our films are available on Prime Video.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
We are planning to expand our content to include web series so our viewers can access new and entertaining shows on our site and Prime Video.
