Freelance Videography, Coaching & Training
"I am truly so lucky to have had Adam be such an integral part of my actor training. I have been able to access a part of my creativity that would never have been known had I not gotten to be in Adam's class" - Rachel Morrison, actor
"Adam is phenomenal. The skills I acquired from his teaching have allowed me to approach self-tape auditions with confidence. I used to worry about the technical aspects of the taping process. Now, I am able to focus solely on the acting and know that everything else is under control! Thank you Adam!" - Brian Patterson, actor
A videographer's job is to wear all hats. I’m responsible for every aspect of the production cycle, from concept and storyboarding, to capturing video and audio, to post production - color correction and audio mixdown. In my two decades as a videographer, I've produced everything from promotional materials, narrative film and documentaries, to comic shorts and music videos.
Throughout the course of shelter-in-place, I’ve been working primarily in remote video, producing showcases for ACT, Columbia University, The New School and Brown/Trinity. For these, I worked entirely remotely, training the actors on the equipment, running the set, editing and producing the final product:
I also specialize in theatrical promos. Heres a teaser of my recent work:
Coaching & Training
Three years ago, my colleague Lauren English and I founded The Actor Online, a training program for actors to help them master the tools and skills necessary to thrive in an increasingly online world, from self-taping auditions, to creating their own creative content, to mastering social media for networking and self-promotion. I teach cinematography skills, storyboarding, editing, and audio mixing, among other things.

Auditions & Monologues
Sometimes you've got a big audition and you simply don't want to be bothered with the complexities of self-taping. You just want a powerful, cinematic quality tape created for you that will knock their socks off.
I do same-day turnaround auditions in my Berkeley studio, or in your own home. In less than an hour, I can capture your best work, and get you a final product within hours.
Personality slates are a new way for influencers, entrepreneurs and corporate thought leaders to establish and shape their online presence.
Basically, it's a trailer all about you, and the principles which guide you. It's a way to help people understand the essence of the person you want to put forward online.
