Eden Alexis Martinez (They/Them) is a New York native, Puerto Rican-American filmmaker who's work explores the chaos, beauty, and ridiculous collision of intersectionality and identity.
Mentored by Alex Karpovsky (Girls) and Chris Chan Roberson (NYU Tisch School of the Arts), Eden spent the subsequent decade dipping their toe into - okay, diving headfirst into - production; learning the ropes by taking every available creative and/or behind-the-camera role available.
Eden’s breadth of industry knowledge and hands-on set experience has allowed them to hone a directorial style entirely their own. In their 8 years of agency experience, Eden worked on countless projects, focusing primarily on docu-style branded content. With @Spot creative, they helmed teams as senior creative producer & director, and worked with clients such as Don Mischer Productions, The 9/11 Memorial & Museum, and Verizon. In 2016 they pursued freelancing as a director and producer. They have since achieved success working on videos for clients such as Vogue, Discovery+, and HGTV.
When they are not working (ha!) you can find Eden rock climbing, hiking with their dog Osita, at Unity Jiu Jitsu School, or in a Brooklyn Kitchen debating Jurassic Park’s rightful place as a seminal classic piece of cinematic history.
