Contact Derek Quint at:

You can keep up on all Addovolt projects here on our production blog as well as being connected to Derek on Facebook.  We can be contacted via our Youtube page as well.

There's an Addovolt Tumblr page right HERE but, for fuck's sake, we'd rather gnaw our own balls off than get a Twitter account.  At some point, we might do Instagram.  But not today.

Addovolt Productions

UPDATED 12-14-17

Addovolt Productions is an independent film production company led by writer-director Derek Quint. We do everything from short films and music videos to documentaries and features.  Quint's work has been described as "art house", "captivating", "mesmerizing", "spirited", and "wonderfully entertaining". His projects have been featured on Film Threat, The Critic's Word, The Gothic Imagination, Dark Matter Zine, Horror Cult Films (UK), Big Gay Horror Fan, Punk Globe, Creepy Pasta, Legends of America, Buzz Magazine, Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Radio One, the News-Herald, After Ellen, and the CreateSpace blog (an Amazon Group company) among other publications.

Our time at Addovolt is spent, mainly, on bringing our own films and documentaries to fruition although we occasionally collaborate with other production companies and fulfill commissioned works on a case-by-case basis. Freedom of approach and content continually drives us.  We enjoy exploring the avant-garde, tackling unusual subject matter, and taking experimental approaches to filmmaking.

Although we love all kinds of films and filmmakers, we really love John Waters, Werner Herzog, Frederico Fellini, F.W. Murnau, Aleksandr Ptushko, Sophie Muller, Lee Daniels, Kenneth Anger, Ryan Murphy, Floria Sigismondi, Gregg Araki, Guy Maddin, David Lynch, Ken Russell, Baz Luhrmann, Tim Burton, Sophia Coppola, Maya Deren, Mel Brooks, Walt Disney, and Quentin Tarantino.

Please view our Featured Project (one of our more recent ventures) and be sure to visit our Upcoming Projects page to see what we're working on at the moment.
