…I am Ed.
My name is Ed Adams, and I’m a designer, an illustrator, an artist, and if you want to play the title game - I’m an Art Director. I work in the NJ / NYC metro area and create things that people look at everyday; on the street and on the internet, I’ve worked on projects with the big budgets of fortune 500s to less lucrative jobs for bands and record labels. I thrive on both print and interactive; I’m able to handle everything from concept to flash development and I can act as a liaison between creative and technology with my working knowledge of both backend and frontend code [hopefully saving everyone a few years on their life expectancy]. I’m painfully organized, obsessed with “a christmas story”, and I can’t stand it when my glass coffee table has smudges. Ultimately, it all comes down to one thing: I love to make pictures.

If you’d like to talk about what kind of picture you need made [static or interactive], or you just want to talk about my typography, drop me a line at ed[at]flickertoflame.com and we can sit down, drink some tea, and have a chat.

Plus, you can always track my every move @ twitter (if I’m not being lazy) or head on over to LinkedIn for more professional info. Plus, you can always view the main purpose of flickertoflame.com: my portfolio.

This is a short documentary I did during college about the Kid Dynamite reunion shows in 2003 at the Philadelphia Unitarian Church, benefiting the Syrentha Savio Endowment for breast cancer research and treatment. I just posted this on YouTube a while back after 7 years of hiding in the dark, aside from some in-class critiques and a short film “festival” of sorts that was held at the time. It’s rather interesting, albeit poorly planned, and I think it did a decent job of documenting an event from a spectator’s point of view, without having had the foresight to leave enough time for interviews, or really any preparation at all. I ended up renting a camera from the school a few hours before the show and threw things together on the fly — including the interviews and “b-roll” that I filmed during setup — and fortunately, the one thing I did happen to plan for was a wireless mic, which I rented along with the camera. Most of my interview questions consisted of “so, tell me the story of how you guys got this show together…”, which tends to show a little bit in the way I had to edit a few things together, but all-in-all I think it was a good effort for a last minute endeavor by an untrained “filmmaker” for a digital media course. I got an A.
