FILM / VIDEO
Directing work for film/video includes the narrative indie feature DUST, fashion films, music videos, short form comedy, documentary profiles, branded content and network interstitials.
Adam has written, edited and shot much of his own work and produced it all. His short-form work and feature have been shown in international film festivals (ASVOFF, Barcelona Screen, Durban Int'l Film Festival). DUST, which he directed with the artist Casey Spooner and produced with Michael Stipe, is an eccentric indie in the style of the Warhol/Morrissey flicks and features the final screen role by the late Warhol Superstar Holly Woodlawn.
The web series "Ladies & Gentlemen," also created with Spooner, profiled 32 artists ranging from Hollywood stars like Chloe Sevigny, James Franco and Frances McDormand to avant-garde and fringe personalities like Kembra Pfahler (Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black), Elizabeth LeCompte (Wooster Group), Machine Dazzle, and Ryder Ripps. Dugas and Spooner followed that series with short form work for the New York Times.
Working strictly as a producer, Adam has overseen over 300 commercial broadcast, digital and industrial projects for global brands. He produced Bjarne Melgaard’s films for the Whitney Biennial, the art book FISCHERSPOONER (Damiani, publisher), and music videos including "Tu Y Yo" for telenovela star Maite Perroni (over 55M views).
