FIRE CITY: THE INTERPRETER OF SIGNS has completed shooting and is now in post production.

HARBINGER DOWN is the all Practical Effects (PFX) creature film the fans have asked for. Funded through Kickstarter and Dark Dunes Productions, Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff Jr. of StudioADI present an alternative to big studio CG driven genre films. Please help us spread the word. Let the revolution begin.

Twenty-five years ago, we bid adieu to our days with Stan Winston and struck out on our own, destined we believed for filmmaker glory. Over those years, what began as a way to pay the bills grew into an award-winning career and a level of artistic satisfaction that has had its own highs and lows but no regrets.

Since you’re already here, you know we’ve just launched a new site, stripping away some of the relics of the past without losing our identity. At a time when filmmaking is fast and cost-efficient, it seemed like the right opportunity to provide a new source to update, educate, and fire up your interest to have us bring our A-game to your project, small, medium, or large!

With the passing of friend and hero Ray Harryhausen on May 7th, there has been a great sense of loss. While Ray had been in retirement for quite a number of years, there were always his visits to ADI and our visits to his home in London. He was the inspiration that fueled us and many, many others to bring their passion to play in front of the cameras.

While his physical presence may have left us, the fire he kindled inside still burns brightly, casting enough light to see that he’s still with us!
