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 work has 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 film and documentary projects 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 Darren, Walt Disney, and Quentin Tarantino.
