After attending NYU film school, Adam left the field for several years to explore other interests including drawing, sculpting, woodworking, bicycles, construction, and fitness training. He recently created a bronze statue for the city of Frederick. His return to filmmaking began with shooting and editing documentaries. He has directed the feature documentary “Eb”, and worked on projects for numerous anti-poverty nonprofits. He’s currently writing a comedy feature set to shoot next year. His new company, Archai Media, has several productions in the works both here and in South America. Archai Media also rents its Red Camera gear, and is developing a line of ergonomic camera support accessories.
WHAT DRIVES ME AS A FILMMAKER:
My approach to filmmaking is to focus on a subject that moves me, and to find my way intuitively from there. Everything seems to happen naturally once I catch that spark. The first film I really connected to was Bicycle Thieves. So many moments in the film felt like complex life moments, not movie moments. This changed my conception of what cinema is capable of. I see film as a means of connecting us with our core and helping us live with ourselves and with each other.
Steven Spielberg went to town this week casting his upcoming Abraham Lincoln biopic, which already had Daniel Day-Lewis in place as Lincoln and Sally Field as his wife, Mary Todd.
Joining them in the film, based on Pulitzer-winning biographer Doris Kearns Goodwin’s Team of Rivals, will be Tommy Lee Jones, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, John Hawkes, and a dozen other thesps.
Who else will log time inLincoln?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jones will play Republican congressman Thaddeus Stevens while Gordon-Levitt steps into the role of Abe ‘n’ Mary Todd’s eldest son, Robert.
Also joining the cast will be Hal Holbrook, James Spader, John Hawkes, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, Joseph Cross, David Costabile, Byron Jennings, Dakin Matthews, Boris McGiver, Gloria Reuben, Jeremy Strong, and David Warshofsky.
From DreamWorks Studios:
Based on the best-selling book, Team of Rivals, by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, the screenplay has been written by the Pulitzer Prize winner, Tony Award winner, and Academy Award nominated writer Tony Kushner. It will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Steven Spielberg.
The film will focus on the political collision of Lincoln and the powerful men of his cabinet on the road to abolition and the end of the Civil War.
Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones will play Thaddeus Stevens, a Republican leader and powerful congressman from Pennsylvania in the U.S. House of Representatives. Stevens was a staunch supporter of abolishing slavery and was critical to writing the legislation that funded the American Civil War.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt, known for his roles in “Inception,” “(500) Days of Summer,” and next year’s “The Dark Knight Rises,” will take on the role of Robert Todd Lincoln, eldest son of President Lincoln and the only one to live past his teenage years.
