Welcome to adster's domain!

This is the personal website of Adam W. LaPrade.

After attending the University of Central Florida’s Film program, I recently moved cross-country to Hollywood, California. Currently, I’m Credential Systems Administrator for the Academy Awards and the Emmy Awards. This site is a collection of things I’ve worked on recently.

After slowly acquiring studio-grade equipment, I decided to form a small video production company specializing in corporate videos and independent filmmaking. Adster Productions has most recently been involved in filming a series of training and instructional videos for the Hard Knock’s corporation in Orlando, Florida.

      Film Equipment

      I have a large range of run-and-gun equipment available for filmmaking. I start with a Canon 7D High-Def camera. For a more film-like appearence, I use a Tokina 11-16 f2.4 as well as a Canon 17-55 f2.4 lenses. For audio, I have 2 Sennheiser EW100 G3 wireless mic systems both coupled with a Countryman B6 microphone. For a boom, I use the Sennheiser MK66 mic attached to a boom pole. For certain shots, I also have a 2x3 ft dolly with 30 ft of track, a 12x10 ft chroma green screen and a selection of bounce boards all lit using an Amvonna 2500 watt 3 point lighting kit.

      For post production, I use a MacBook Pro i5 with 4GB of ram and over 1TB of external storage (which seems to be growing all the time!) I use a myriad of software suites that really depend on the project, for example Adobe’s Creative Suite CS5 (Premiere, Photoshop, After Effects, etc), Apple Final Cut Studio 3 (Final Cut Pro, Soundtrack, DVD Studio Pro, etc), Celtx for production management, and Final Draft for scriptwriting.
