Director Biography – Alexander Henninger (BARRY)

Alexander Henninger is an Emmy award-winning multimedia storyteller in the United States Army. Enlisting in 2006, Alexander began his career as Military Police. Even then, he almost always had a camera in hand. In 2016, Alexander merged his passion for filmmaking with his professional career in the Army, attending the Defense Information School and qualifying as a Broadcast Specialist. Since then, he’s filmed stories in almost a dozen countries from thousands of feet in the air to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean and was named the Army’s best new videographer in 2019. Striving to learn more, he attended the Military Motion Media program at Syracuse University in 2020.

Director Statement

I can’t begin to express how thankful I am for the opportunity I had to make this short, and for the phenomenal people that came together to make it happen. This project was immensely different from what I normally do in the Army. To be able to stretch those creative muscles in such a different way with an amazing crew – and hopefully making audiences laugh – has been a true highlight of my time away from the Army while here at Syracuse University.
