“Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” That’s a quote Adam’s father often used around the Brummond family farm. Along with the lessons of an unmatched work ethic came the freedom to explore his passions and be brave in the pursuit of them.Cold winters in Minnesota were spent riding and racing snowmobiles with his younger brothers on the farm. Adam later had a professional career in snowmobile racing and served as a precision rider on national television commercials and print campaigns. The mark of potential however, is the desire to see something and strive to make it better. Recognizing that, he went on to study Directing at USC, and began to direct the same commercials in which he used to star.
Now based in Los Angeles, Adam’s work encompasses several new industries and mediums. Adam has directed over 100 commercial projects for clients ranging from Indian Motorcycle to Blue Moon. He has become proficient in creating brand films that give a heartbeat to inanimate objects through the people who experience them. With over eight years experience in commercial production, he is now ready to begin work on his first feature.
Adam is currently developing three feature films and a documentary.
Raised in the heart of the Midwest and educated at the University of Missouri’s renowned School of Journalism followed by Drake University’s Executive Master’s Business program, Mark spent twelve years in the advertising and corporate world progressing brand marketing, creative direction and interactive content production.
The transition to the film industry came at a time when production companies adept in commercial business applications combined with connective storytelling and emotive cinematography were difficult to find. As co-founder of The Factory, Mark contributes his practical experience and natural creative vision to The Factory’s cadre of talent. With over a decade of modern business experience leading creative teams, his primary role as a producer has supported a myriad of cross-industry commercial clients and now feature films.
As a director/editor with an MFA from the USC School of Cinematic Arts, Noah has extensive experience telling highly cinematic stories using mixed media.
Through his work with Academy Award-winning documentarian Steve James (Hoop Dreams), on the Best Picture-winning feature Moonlight and the Sundance-winning documentary Dark Horse, as well as wide-ranging work in commercials (Greats Shoes, Polaris) and music videos, he has learned to shape emotional stories out of raw material and to condense larger narratives into short, high impact spots.
Noah’s first narrative short “Dear Jane” was recently accepted into the 2020 Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
