Early life

Alec was born to Iranian parents of mixed Russo-Turkic descent in Grozny, Soviet Union. Although he grew up in Tehran, Iran his family immigrated to Sweden in 1986 when Alexander Cartio was just 12. Passionate about music, he started playing the piano at the age of 13. He was also keen on cameras and keyboards from early age.

Career

At the age of 14, he joined a small group of schoolmates forming a basement band which was later to become a Swedish professional boy band, initially called Get Wet. The name was changed later to Caymen and signed to a record deal by Sony/BMG in Sweden. They released three singles and toured most of North Europe playing at venues ranging from 500-3500 people audiences. After 8 years with the band, he finally called it quits and the band split up.

In mid 1999, he joined two close friends, the Spantman brothers on a journey to Los Angeles. He searched for opportunities and registered for theatre arts classes at Santa Monica College which led him to take part in a small student short movie. This encouraged him to take on filmmaking and shooting of videos. Alec Cartio graduated from the Stockholm School of Media and Arts in 2001, followed by a BFA from Columbia College Hollywood in Los Angeles.

In 2002 he began directing and producing music video's and commercials for various artists and companies and established himself as a highly sought after and successful international director. The majority of his clients are Iranian, Swedish and American artists, but also from countries such as South Africa and Denmark. Amongst the Iranian population, he is known as "the revolutionizer of the music video and commercial world", mainly for his innovative images, rich and glossy pictures and ground breaking ideas.

In 2008, in partnership with his long time collaborator, actor and screen writer Sulo Williams, he began production for his first independent comedy feature film "Convincing Clooney". The movie is planned for a wide audience release during late 2009.
