My name is Dave Adams and I’m the Videographer and one of the Digital Marketing Specialists here at Snagged. Movies have been a part of my life since I was a small child. My first memory of the movies was being terrified of Ghostbusters 2 with my dad in the old theatre that used to be in the Supermall here in Sudbury. To be fair though, I was 3. Bill Murray’s comedic deadpan wouldn’t really connect with me for at least 4 more years.
My dad was always instrumental in introducing me to movies and television that weren’t just the same as everything else. To show me what the medium could be used for. He introduced me to the differences between American comedy and British comedy and made sure I always had a wide knowledge base of what film and television COULD be used for.
Having been so entwined with movies from such a young age, I developed an eye and a fondness for telling a story through the medium. Using not only what’s being shown, but how it’s being shown to invoke meaning and emotions into the visual aspect. The visual aspect of what we do has always been a big part of who I am and why I do it.
I was born in Sudbury and have lived here my entire life. I graduated from Laurentian University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, focusing on the areas of motivation and behaviour. While I was there, I took every single film and photography class I could fit in as my electives, and now I use my combination of talents in the field of Marketing. Mixing these two disciplines, I have a unique sense of what works, why it works, and how best to accomplish our goals for you, our customers.
Outside of work, I’m a big sports fan, following the Patriots, The Maple Leafs, and of course, the Toronto Blue Jays. I’m also at the movie theatre on average about once a month, but sometimes it’s much higher.
