Welcome to thedeek!

Thedeek is the official web presence of filmmaker and all around nice guy Alex Decaneas. That's me!

For the last 15 years, I have been making films professionally, specializing in comedic storytelling; from improvised sketches, animations, and commercials, to music videos, interviews and performance art.

I am comfortable wearing many hats. I have worked as a director, performer, writer, editor, and producer. My mantra is to be "that which is best suited for your project."

I have a passion for creativity, and extensive experience in improvisation, filmmaking, performance and tv / digital post production.

If you would like to collaborate, please contact me with any questions or requests. I would love to hear about your project!

What follows below is a curation of some of my latest and favorite work across a variety of mediums. Happy viewing!

Here is some of the work I have been up to these days.

Killer Recipe


An avocado scientist inadvertently invents tortilla chips that want to eat him. Tomato helps destroy and dispose of the menace. But the creation proves to be far more resilient…

Killer Recipe is a fun stop motion project by Chadwick Whitehead I had the pleasure of voicing some characters for.

The animation has been featured in a number of international festivals this year to much praise!

THE WILD WILD's "When We Were Young"

Site of Sound calls it "…a quintessential summer anthem". Couldn't agree more! Teaming up with DESCENDANT RECORDS and THE WILD WILD, I created this edit for a colorful music video that celebrates the innocence of youth.

Check out the video and follow the catchy pop magic that is "When We Were Young"!

The Ghost Vote


Over 30,000 people are killed in America each year due to gun violence. Chances are you may know someone personally affected by gun violence.

With the Ghost Vote, you can raise awareness on behalf of those who no longer can. Head over to to lend your vote.

Through SUSPECT and Grey Advertising, I had the honor of editing this award winning campaign for common sense gun laws.
