The art of filmmaking is to tell a story through film. Films influence culture and societies. How are stories developed? What are the challenges of raising capital through such vehicles as Kickstarter compared to traditional means? Has the power of the internet made it easier to market and distribute?

Adrian Esposito is a young prolific filmmaker. He is 26 years old and has already made seven films many of which have won awards. Adrian’s films tend to focus on social issues and subjects that have faced significant challenges in life. Diagnosed as having autism as a child, Adrian has faced many challenges of his own. His history includes dealing with many educational and social barriers but he remains positive focusing on his talents and strengths rather than limitations.
“Inspired by his love of film, Adrian began to take classes at The Animation Workshop at Animatus Studio in Rochester when he was 12 years old. This study opened a door for him. He found a way to express himself using the vocabulary and the medium of film,” writes journalist Jim Memmott in an article about Adrian Esposito in the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle (Oct 18, 2008). In 2008, Adrian received his certificate in Radio & Television Broadcasting from Monroe #1 BOCES EMCC. He continues to study filmmaking with Animatus Studio.
Adrian feels that his Autism works well with his filmmaking. “People with this disorder tend to hyper focus on an area of interest, my interest area has always been movies,” says Adrian.
