Adam Vogtman. Cinematographer/Editor
A born cinephile, at age 8, and inspired by the 1933 classic King Kong, I picked up my mom’s 8mm kodak home-movie camera and attempted to shoot a movie about dinosaurs. When we developed the film it looked so bad I never watched it again, but later in high school I specialized in Video Production and Commercial Design, and rekindled my interest in films and the magic of cinematography. I later attended The Sheffield Institute for the Recording Arts where I honed my skills as a cinematographer and polished my craft in the edit suite. I decided, with the invaluable encouragement of my wife, to make cinematography not only my passion but my profession.
Quix·ot·ic /kwikˈsädik/ , an adjective that enters the english language through translations of the 17th-century Spanish novel El Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quijote da la Mancha, by Miguel de Cervantes, typically carries the valences and connotations of idealism, ambition, or hopeless romanticism in relation to an idea, or with respect to outlandish chivalry. For me, and not without some levity, the adjective evokes the very quality I needed to muster to make my passion my profession; and 'worx' because doing so involves a good deal of work.
When I'm not studying cinematography, playing with camera equipment, or editing a project, I'm raising three beautiful children, reading some classic philosophical tome, or enjoying a fine cup of coffee.
