We Got personal with the creative Alex Acosta
As part of a sit-down interview, I had the pleasure of speaking with Alex Acosta, a highly skilled and experienced video director making waves in the entertainment industry. Acosta’s most notable project to date is the Michelle Obama special on Revolt, a cross-generational discussion that featured former First Lady Michelle Obama and a panel of influential women of color, including H.E.R., Kelly Rowland, Winnie Harlow, Tina Knowles-Lawson, and Angie Martinez. The special touched on a wide range of topics such as fatherhood, choosing a partner, and trusting one’s instincts.
During our conversation, Acosta shared his approach to creating this visually stunning production that effectively conveyed Michelle Obama’s message of leadership, education, and civic engagement to the youth. He conducted extensive research on Michelle Obama’s speeches and worked closely with his production team to develop a treatment that would effectively convey the message of the special while remaining relatable and entertaining to young viewers.
Acosta’s directing style is marked by its realism and innovation. For the Michelle Obama special, he pushed the boundaries of traditional filmmaking to create a unique and impactful production. He also made sure to incorporate the voices and perspectives of the panel of powerful women of color, making the special more inclusive and relatable for a diverse audience.
The Michelle Obama special on Revolt was a tremendous success for both Revolt and Acosta’s career. It received widespread praise for its unique and creative approach, reaching millions of views on Revolt and social media platforms, and garnering positive feedback from both the youth and adults. The special not only raised awareness of the importance of education and civic engagement among the youth but also inspired them to become leaders in their communities.
In addition to the creative challenges of the project, Acosta also had to navigate the logistical challenges of coordinating the schedules of high-profile individuals like Michelle Obama and the panel of influential women of color. However, his experience and skill as a director allowed him to overcome these challenges and bring the special to fruition, showcasing his ability to handle the logistics and pressure that come with working with high-profile individuals.
Overall, Acosta’s experience with directing the Michelle Obama special on Revolt was challenging but also a memorable one. His ability to balance creativity with practicality, navigate logistical challenges, and create a unique and impactful production made the project a huge success and a valuable asset to his career. The special demonstrates Acosta’s skills and capabilities as a director and solidifies his place as a top director in the entertainment industry.
