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, Fun Size Horror, Punk Globe, Metal Underground, Creepy Pasta, Legends of America, Art Reveal Magazine, 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 the work of Frederico Fellini, Kenneth Anger, Sophia Coppola, Baz Luhrmann, Tim Burton, F.W. Murnau, George Romero, Tobe Hooper, Maya Deren, John Waters, Walt Disney, Werner Herzog, and Quentin Tarantino.
