About this pro
Adam filmed, edited and produced a series of high quality videos for our organization showcasing our most talented employees. This work was complex and required him to manage multiple sites and stakeholders. Throughout it all, he was excited about the work, calm and collected, and adaptable when we faced hurdles. This work took a significant amount of organization and planning given filming across 15+ schools and multiple regions. He also collaborated with regional videographers and seamlessly incorporated them into the end product. Overall he is incredibly professional and produces high quality work! We look forward to working with him in the future.Jun 24, 2016
Adam is a true professional. I needed a promotional video for my summer camp so I asked Adam to give me an estimate. His scope of work and estimate was in the ballpark of what I could afford so I hired him. He spent an entire day at my summer camp - filming live action, filming landscapes, and conducting interviews. His first draft of the video was as close to a final version as I could imagine. After a few voice overs, adding some additional stock photography, and editing a few titles, the video was ready to go live on my website. I couldn't be happier with the final product. Throughout the whole process Adam demonstrated expertise of his craft. He was conscientious of my budget, timely with his edits, and completely invested in the project. I look forward to contracting with him again soon.Apr 6, 2016

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Whenever I begin a new project, I talk with the client by phone or in person to get a full understanding of their needs and discuss different ways to execute their vision. Then I create a written proposal, outlining the entire production process, relevant deadlines, and expected costs. Once that proposal has been reviewed, revised and approved by the client, we begin the production.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Prior to my work in film, I spent 7 years as a staff and freelance journalist, which gave me a strong foundation in storytelling, research, and interview skills. Since 2006, I've worked professionally in film and video, starting as an editor, and working in virtually every job in the independent-film production ladder. In 2011, I completed my first feature-length film as Co-Director, and have now made a total of five documentary features. In addition to my work as a filmmaker, I also currently serve as the Upper School Film Teacher at Brentwood School, one of California's top independent schools. Since founding the program in 2013, I've created five different film courses, including a UC-approved yearlong "Introduction to Filmmaking" course.
