FILM / VIDEO
Directing work for film/video includes the narrative feature DUST, fashion films, music videos, short form comedy, documentary profiles, branded content, corporate industrials and network interstitials.
Adam writes, edits and shoots much of his own work and produces it all. His short-form work and feature film have been screened at international 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 trans Warhol Superstar Holly Woodlawn.
He recently co-directed a music video with Ann Magnuson for “The Sun Don’t Care,” her Appalachian-inspired spiritual ballad. Additionally, he directed, shot and edited the four inaugural installments of “Proud of Us” a series of vignettes by the Hollywood comedic actors Sam Pancake and Nina Millin.
"Ladies & Gentlemen," a web series 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. That series was followed by video work for the New York Times.
Creative consulting work includes story producing for reality and docu-series and directing development of a narrative comedy series and a documentary film. 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, 2014), and music videos including "Tu Y Yo" for telenovela star Maite Perroni (over 55M views).
