Emmy-winning Director and Producer; Star Trek Director

A recipient of an Emmy and Humanitas awards, Alex Singer directed five feature films and more than 280 television shows, spanning a successful career of more than 40 years. He directed and lectured in the US, Canada, Mexico, and Europe, and taught both production and directing at universities and other institutions, including a 17-week course at USC’s School of Electrical Engineering. For the National Research Council, he published two white papers: “Convergence of Computers, Telecommunications and Entertainment” and “Defense Modeling and Simulation Organization and the Entertainment Industry.”

The NRC later designated Singer a lifetime National Associate of the National Academy of Sciences. In addition, Singer presented at three DARPA Information Science and Technology study groups: “Building a Time Machine”; “Total Recall: Combining Human and Digital Memory,” and “Augmented Cognition,” – the last evolving into a short dramatic film: “The Future of Augmented Cognition.” As part of the three-volume published examination of their research, DARPA asked Singer to write a chapter about virtual environment training in the year 2057, using the story-telling metaphor of Star Trek’s Holodeck.
