Galaxy Man is more than just a video production company. It’s the culmination of a life-long friendship between three ambitious and creative people. Austin, Sam, and Alix have all known each other since elementary school. After going off to college they all landed in New York City, exploring different careers before realizing that they - like Voltron and the Backstreet Boys - were far more powerful together than apart. And thus, GALAXY MAN was born!
Alix Korda’s background in the ad agency world produced a lean, mean, content machine. Through her time at Mindshare and Omnicom, she’s worked with brands as large as Pepsi, Lowe’s, and Unilever. In her recent production endeavors she's branched into scripted and unscripted series, docs, and even more branded content. From production to project management to hand model extraordinaire, she does it all. When not on set, you can find Alix knitting tiny mittens for cats or hard at work on her comprehensive memoir, Never Be Not Having Gum: The Alix Korda Story.
Austin Bening is a digital media veteran and seasoned YouTubeman. He started his career at Maker Studios, working with such talent as Mishka the Talking Husky, The Gregory Brothers and Camila Coelho. Having shed his corporate shackles, he now wears many hats as a producer, director, writer and editor. He's known for peddling such web series as the Triplets of Kings County, Life After Fat and, most notably, My Gay Roommate, which has been featured in The Huffington Post, The New York Times and Vanity Fair as “the next Will and Grace.” As comfortable in the editing bay as he is behind the camera, Austin enjoys eating buffalo wings, confusing dogs, and listening to the soothing sounds of James Taylor.
Sam Korda is a writer and producer with experience from all over the film and video industry. His style and work are inspired as much by his year and a half in the world of marketing as by his time collaborating with one of the best-selling self-published horror authors on Amazon. When not smashing letters together to make pretty words, he’s debating the finer points of Metal Gear Solid or dream casting a film adaptation of Perdido Street Station.
Galaxy Man is based in East Harlem, NYC and also does extensive work in Columbus, OH.
