Alexander Witt is a film cinematographer, cameraman, assistant director, and director. He was born in Santiago, Chile in 1952. In the horror genre, Alexander first cut his teeth as first assistant camera on the 1983 movie Cujo. Fortunately, the eponymous killer dog from that film didn't cut his teeth on him! Witt worked as the director of photography (second unit) on the 2001 psycho-thriller Hannibal.
Alexander made his directorial debut in 2004 when he helmed Resident Evil: Apocalypse, which is the first sequel to the 2002 movie Resident Evil. It should also be noted that Witt played a small uncredited role in the film as well as a sniper for the Umbrella Corporation.

Other works[edit | edit source]
- Alexander worked on a 1985 movie called Flesh+Blood, which may sound like it should be a horror film, but it really isn't.
- While Harry and the Hendersons is certainly by no means a horror movie, no one can deny that Witt's ability as a second unit camera operator on the film brings everyone's favorite Sasquatch to life in ways that few others can.
- Alexander Witt has the distinction of being one of the few and the proud to work on Leonard Part 6. Again, not a horror movie, but I dare anyone to muster up the nerve to sit through the entire thing!
- He was a second unit director on the 1988 sci-fi movie The X-Files: Fight the Future.
- Alexander Witt was the second unit director of photography on Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, which not only stars Johnny Depp, but is chock-full of zombie pirates, too!
