Leonardo Agrizzi Netto
Founder / President
Brazilian born, British raised and American improved, Leo has spent the last decade working as a filmmaker and photographer around the world. His diverse body of work is a testament to his long education in fine arts and its history.
He attests his compositional ability to his continuous travels and his captivation with images and perspectives of every kind. His mentor Robert Primes, ASC taught him to step into other people’s shoes and to look at everything with fresh eyes as a way to effectively communicate his ideas to his audience and collaborators.
In 2012, after his first year at AFI's Cinematography program in Los Angeles, Leo founded Photek Films to develop and produce content that fosters the undifferentiated human Spirit across culture barriers.
Beyond his work in production, Leo and his partner Alexa are establishing an Eco-Ashram in Southern Portugal for self discovery, sustainable development, creative therapies and healing retreats.
Plans for the future include a net-zero carbon film studio and film festival.
Alexandra Glenn Prather
Texas native Alexa found her calling at a young age through her generous work at the Midland Rape Crisis Center with her dog, Angel, providing comfort and unconditional love to abused children. She created documentaries, music videos and PSAs for the Center's use, consequently realizing the impact of cinema in acting as a catalyst for change.
While volunteering at the Center, she began producing televised news programs at CBS 7, which gave her the experience of fast-paced media production.
In 2013, she graduated early to accept a producing position on the award-winning feature film Love Land, her first project to combine humanitarian efforts with narrative storytelling.
Currently, she is working on post-production for a Bee movie which will be Photek Film's first feature length documentary.
Radio-Television-Film degree from the University of Texas at Austin.
