Years Experience: 18
Adrian grew up in a small town in Connecticut. He attended the University of Connecticut where he majored in electrical engineering…that is, until his junior year. At this point, he had still not figured out what an electrical engineer does for a living, so he decided to change majors. He ultimately earned degrees in history and sociology.
Adrian proceeded to forego doctoral studies in history to try his hand at the exciting and lucrative field of production assisting. Several years as a PA, grip, electric, camera assistant and finally as a cinematographer have proven to be exciting and fruitful. Adrian loves being on set, even when it is absolutely terrible and everything goes wrong. There is nowhere else Adrian would rather be.
Adrian has worked on everything from Michael Field’s award winning work, to Bob Altman’s highly rated 'Handmade TV' projects, feature documentaries for the WE Network’s 'Secret Lives of Women' specials and ESPN’s Black History Month special on 'The Decline of the African-American Baseball Player'. He has recently finished acclaimed writer/director Gorman Bechard’s feature film 'Friends (with benefits)' and the award-winning feature film 'Freezer Burn' by writer/director Charles Hood.
He is currently in production shooting the film 'The Raft' starring Ed Asner, adapted from noted author Peter Orner’s short story, for award-winning director Robert Jones. Next up is 'Tabitha’s Aquarium' for writer/director Jason Klein, winner of the Wasserman Award at NYU Tisch School. After that Adrian will shoot the feature 'Couchgarden' for celebrated writer/director Robert Scott Wildes. Writer/Director Sal Delucia has tabbed Adrian to shoot his feature film, 'The Boys of Wooster' a coming of age story of Italian-Americans in New Haven, Connecticut’s storied Wooster Street neighborhood. He is the cinematographer attached to Gorman Bechard’s next feature film, a 2.5 million dollar adaptation of his acclaimed novel 'The Second Greatest Story Ever Told'. Finally, Adrian is in talks with Sundance Film Festival Grand Prize Jury Winner Leslie Harris (Just Another Girl on the I.R.T.) to shoot her feature film satire 'I Love Cinema: or How Sex, Racism and a Film Pushed a Woman Over the Edge'.
