FOUNDER / PRODUCTION DIRECTOR
Adam founded Red Element Studios in 2009 with a single camera and a ton of energy. Today he leads the company in creating high production value videos that delight both clients and their customers.

Jana is passionate about seeing stories unfold into reality. Outside of Red Element, you can find Jana at SIFF Cinema watching the latest documentary, or pug-spotting in Seattle’s public parks.
DIRECTOR / EDITOR
Evan grew up bored in the suburbs of Southern California, where he started making films and videos with friends as way to pass the time. Over the years, that hobby turned into a passion, and then a career. After studying film at Boston University, he began directing short films and freelancing for a wide range of clients. He joined Red Element in 2018, where he directs, edits, and collaborates with the team to bring video projects to life. Outside of Red Element, you’ll find Evan cooking healthy foods, or playing the 4 chords he knows on guitar.
