Director Biography - Adam Steinfeld

Adam Steinfeld, based in south Florida, studied to be a filmmaker, at the University of Miami, directing, writing, and creating, mini-versions of the Tonight Show, and his final senior thesis short film thesis, "the Box", on Houdini, he went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree, in Film & Television, all while performing as a skilled street-style magician, that put himself through college.

Soon, after graduation Steinfeld's travels, focused on his magic skills, presenting at; comedy clubs, and mega cruise-ships around the world, to performing & producing in one of the longest running permanent magic shows, over 2,300 shows, Magic Live!®...comedy on the beach, at two mega island casino resorts, in Aruba, that ran close to ten years.

No doubt, magicians, played, an early key role, in the development of feature films, from Georges Méliès , to Harry Houdini , to Orson Welles, and that's one of the reasons, Mr. Steinfeld, believes, in that expansion of the Art form of magic, mixed with, television, and film, now many years later, Adam, is very much involved in shooting, writing & editing his own self-produced projects.

"I shot many many shorts, said Steinfeld, working with my long time magic assistants, in my magic show, as the star actors, and crew...each time, I increased my directing and editing skills."

"You have to remember, I studied to be a filmmaker years ago, but the new digital film technology, has allowed me to experiment with various stories, on an ultra low, no budget projects, such as; Ask Madame Wonder?, Creezy, Magic Schmuck, 2nd Best Magician, Houdini Lives!, Magic Island, to a writing collaboration, of my novel, Houdini Lives! , with award-winning Boston crime author, Al Blanchard, and other comedians, and filmmakers."
