About the film:
Loving Alex scooped the Best Film Award at the 2019 Little Cinema & Unesco Galway City Of Film 48 Hour Challenge. Shot over 48 hours in Galway City with no budget, love, jealousy and control all play their part in this dark comedy. For Dan (played by Emmet Byrne), Alex (played by Conor Hooper) is more than a virtual assistant; he’s his soulmate. Written and directed by Jamie Hooper, a host of WRAP talent feature including Cinematographer Paul D’Eath (Galway), co-editor Aisling Ní Chúláin (Galway) alongside Emily Murray, Sound Designer and Composer Niall Clarke (Galway) and actors John Burke (Sligo), and David Burke (Galway).
