What's in a name?

"Addo" means "to add" (of course) in Latin. "Volt" refers to a unit of electromotive force in English.

"Addovolt" is just a word combo pulled out of the air that I smooshed together.  To me, it means "to add force" or "to add" voltage, electricity, life, etc., etc. you get the idea.

In truth, the name Addovolt Productions is really just a corny, obvious nod to Mary Shelly's Frankenstein (because I love the classic horror books/movies/shows and I always have, even when I was a little kid).  But it works and Addovolt's been the name for a long time now.

Do some projects feel like out-of-control monsters of my own creation?  Without a doubt!
