Meet the Team

Werner Artinger


Werner is the originator of Girl Logic, and began developing the series several years ago. He then realised he was not a woman and not in his twenties, and decided to enlist the help of Alexandra, who is.

Werner has been working as an actor in the entertainment industry since the 1990s. He has been credited as a producer on the short films Free Spirit, and The Clubhouse Dysfunctional Existentialists. Throughout the years, Werner has also co-written numerous independent short films and series. One of his writing credits includes the short film Lords of the Film Race, which won an audience award at The Actor’s Place TAPFest.

Alexandra Bayer


Alexandra is the co-creator and co-writer of Girl Logic. Upon coming on board the project, she helped re-write the pilot script and formulate the season one outline. 

Alexandra has been acting her whole life, and on-screen for the last nine years, which will contribute to her portrayal of the character of Vanessa in Girl Logic. She graduated from the University of Toronto with a major in English and a minor in Drama. She has also written a novel titled Identity (, which was published in 2020. 

Amir Kiani


Amir is an Iranian born former journalist, a Toronto-based producer, and an alumnus of Staffordshire University and the Asian Film Academy. After graduating from film school and creating seven short films in Iran, he moved to Ottawa to pursue his education in fine arts and cinema. Amir is a proud student of great masters of cinema such as the legendary French writer Jean-Claude Carrière, Palme d’Or winner Hou Hsiao-Hsien, and the respected producer of Hanway Films, Stephan Mallmann.

 In 2016 Amir established his production company Cinemote, and since then has directed and produced a 7-episode documentary series, four short films, and is currently in development of a feature documentary, as well as a narrative feature-length film. His works have been screened at over 40 film festivals and art venues, including Raindance and Busan International Film Festival.

Alex Whorms

Music Supervisor and Consultant

Alex has been a professional musician since the age of twelve, and currently occupies several different positions in the music industry, including instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, composer, music supervisor, and music teacher. She has experience touring with bands, as well as working as a solo artist. For Girl Logic, Alex operates as creative consultant, music supervisor, and composer. 

During COVID, Alex shifted her focus from live performance to the film/television industry, and has since scored seven independent films. She was also a music coordinator for the Bell Fibe TV1 comedy-music series "This Is The Thing" (which involved performances by various musical groups in every episode, and both the licensing and composing of music). Like the entire Girl Logic team, Alex is passionate about working towards gender parity in the music and film industries, especially since she worked on the 2021 documentary "Why Didn't I Leave" with an all-female crew. As a young, queer female artist used to being the only woman in the room or on the stage, it is important to her to work on projects like Girl Logic to increase the representation of diverse groups in music and digital media.
