Hello! My name is Adam Fackelman and I am a freelance filmmaker, photographer, graphic designer, and all-around artist. I have been a student and a patron of the arts for my entire life and I am building a career out of my passions. I received a B.A. degree in Film Studies, Cinematography and Film/Video Production graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Originally from Charlotte, NC, I moved to Atlanta after graduation to be closer to the gargantuan film and television industry here.
I’ve been creating videos since 2005 when YouTube hit the scene and I was inspired by the original creators of sketches and content on YouTube. During my adolescent years, I focused on gaining the technical knowledge for my budding interest in filmmaking. In high school and college, I obtained hands on experience while working on over 50 student projects, including award-winning films such as Feast Coast and 1994 AD. I work on both Narrative and Documentary films, with a handful having been accepted into multiple film festivals including Cucalorus and Visions. I’ve also had the pleasure of creating graphics and animations for films and for marketing & promotional materials. I particularly enjoy animating with Adobe After Effects and have over 7 years of experience using it.
My photography career began earlier than my filmmaking. I didn’t start out to be a photographer, but rather pursued it as a fun hobby. As a kid I was a fan of skateboarding and I would use disposable film cameras to snap photos of my friends skating. Years later, I got a DSLR camera that allowed me to improve both my photography and my filmmaking skills since it could do both. I now own a Sony A6300. I’ve worked as a photographer for various companies and festivals such as the Atlanta Film Festival and my work has been featured on social media platforms and in newspapers.
I’m an all-around artist and take pride in being a jack-of-all-trades. I seek opportunities that capitalize on my expertise and lifelong passion for filmmaking, photography, and graphic design. I have a high proficiency level in all three areas and work intensely to exceed the expectations of each one of my clients.
