ADAM KNIGHT

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. Adam’s always looking for new ways to tells stories, new technology to implement, and new ways to craft an emotional message. Outside of Red Element, Adam can be found plotting his next global adventure, nerding out about cameras and lenses, and mountain biking in the woods of the Northwest.

 

JANA BOLOTIN

Jana was born in Moscow, but ended up in Seattle via Jerusalem, New York, and Chicago—it’s a long story. Prior to joining Red Element, Jana worked as an associate producer at the August Jackson Company in Chicago, and has also worked in nonfiction television for A&E and the Biography Channel. 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.
