Today we’d like to introduce you to Aaron Adrian.
So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I have always been fascinated by the world of cinema ever since I was a child. I would find myself spending countless hours watching films after films, from the classics to the newest ones. I realized early that films have such a great power and reach to impact countless of lives, whether through narrative stories or documentary styles. My passion for cultures and traveling also piqued my interest to hear stories from other people from different walks of life all over the world.
I developed my interests through photography, but I always felt that a single frame was never enough for me to genuinely pour my emotions into. This led to my discovery and eventual decision to pursue filmmaking as a career.
I continue to develop my craft as I finish my bachelor’s degree in filmmaking. This experience has helped me to become more skilled and critical in my own work in pursuit of constant growth. I am humbled and lucky to have had the opportunities to direct and write a handful of short films, including my latest films Coma (2020), Housewarming (2019), while also working and learning under the guidance of other up-and-coming filmmakers.
As I move forward, I aspire to be a Director/Writer and Cinematographer, highlighting heartfelt stories with important messages but still entertaining to all ranges of audiences. At the end of the day, I only wish to inspire other people to take up this craft and prove that you don’t need Hollywood-level budget and expensive gears to tell your stories.
Has it been a smooth road?
It has not always been a smooth road, but I believe that it is all part of the growth one needs to go through in order to achieve the dream you desire. For me, it was spending years figuring out and testing before I could find my own personal style that I am proud to share and sell. The starting point to get your name out there is also always difficult. But I am grateful to live where social media is so prevalent because to be involved in the media is easier now than ever. You just need to put in the necessary hours to develop your craft.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I view myself as a Director while I also spend some of my time to write my own stories to tell. When I am not working on my own films, I also work as a Cinematographer to help other filmmakers realize their vision. I am also a Photographer, focusing primarily on portraits. I believe having this all-rounded interest in many aspects of visual arts help me to ensure that the work I put into my projects comes from a lot of different perspectives, making it the best that it can be.
