Alexa Prosniewski wrote her first horror film at just 11 years old. She works closely with Jillian Ezra at Ezra Productions currently, where she is learning more about producing film projects, and splitting her time between Los Angeles and New York City. As a fresh college grad, Alexa is a spitfire of a muse because she is all of us: loving every minute of her learning experience as she grows toward her ultimate goals. Also, she lives for her dog, and that alone might as well make her a winner in our books.
We played Two Truths and a Lie with Alexa! .....You probably know the rules, but here is a quick refresher--Below, Alexa gave us two true fun facts, as well as one that's made up. See if you can guess which one is the lie! View the answer at the bottom of her interview.

I went to a private all-girls high school.

Executive Assistant to CEO/Founder of a Creative Agency
When did you know this is what you wanted to do?
Looking back on it, there were two distinct times that I knew I wanted to be in production when I was growing up. The first was when 11-year-old me wrote/directed/shot a "Horror" film starring my sisters and when I finished, I realized that I didn't record sound- major bummer. The whole creative experience of "producing" the movie was so much fun for me, but I could definitely leave some of the technical expertise to someone else!
The second was when I was 13 and Marissa Cooper died on The OC. That show was my life and I truly felt like I had suffered a real loss when that happened. I read an article that said that it was the Producers' decision to kill her off- that made me want to be the one with that creative control! Storytelling has become a big part of my life since and with my double-major in Art and Film working for a creative agency that specializes in video production could not be a more perfect fit!
What is your dream project? Or dream collaboration?
Ezra Productions x Hello Kitty x Chanel, limited edition line - promotional campaign and video. You said dream collab!
List 3 accomplishments you are most proud of
• Being a "Dog Mom"
• Working for a fabulous woman-owned company and CEO (aka: Ezra Productions/Jillian Ezra!)
• Having met amazing peers, friends, and mentors throughout my professional journey
Who is your favorite character from a movie?
Suzy Bishop (Moonrise Kingdom) or Penny Lane (Almost Famous). Different, yet similar...
What is one thing you wish you could tell your younger self?
Keep doin' you 😉
What is your favorite makeup product?
It's a love/hate relationship with mascara. I'm amazed at its impact, but dread applying it!
If you had one shot at a red carpet event what type of look would you go for?
I'd love to have a Zoë Kravitz Dior Couture Emmy's moment!! One of the fundamental attributes of my personal style is to always stay on the effortless-chic side, whilst being on trend and creating a memorable look in the details. Zoë/Dior absolutely nailed that with a simple, yet sexy silhouette and a unique color scheme. Zoë doesn't look like she's trying too hard, but she still exuberates such a strong cool, beautiful, and creative vibe.
Who do you admire and why? (this can be someone you know or a public figure)
Is it cliche to say Oprah?
Which is the lie?
I went to an all girls private school
