Director Biography - Adam A Orton

Ed Begley, Jr is rumored to have once said that working with Adam Orton was a "dream" - and by "rumored" we mean that he was captured on a behind the scenes interview saying so, and by legal standards that totally counts. (The recording is also a ringtone for the IRS on Orton’s phone so whenever they harass him he can be reminded that he’s not entirely the POS his father predicted he’d be.)

Orton’s work has been seen and complimented by legendary filmmakers Gore Verbinksi, Matt Groening, Vicki Jenson, Wim Venders and actor Seth Green. Chris Ellis (APOLLO 13, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN) said "look out, Spielberg!" referring specifically to Adam - though he meant it rhetorically. (Still counts, losers!)

Eddie Jemison (OCEAN’S ELEVEN) even said, “Leave me alone. I will not give you a quote about my time working with Adam Orton,” so that’s proof he knows who Orton is and worked with him.

All that aside, Adam Orton is paving the way for a new wave of filmmakers like a bat out of a pretentious film school hell - donning his Netflix approved camera.

A graduate of Columbia College; a student and employee of The Second City; the director of a independent feature film AMELIA 2.0 that he raised over a million dollars and singlehandedly created over 500 visual effect shots for (because he enjoys suffering;) the co-producer of the critically acclaimed docudrama THE KILLING OF KENNETH CHAMBERLAIN (recently acquired by Morgan Freeman;) and director of THE ASPIRANT - the short film with more than 30 worldwide wins and was seen and hailed by the aforementioned group of insanely talented and eclectic group of filmmakers — Orton truly is a hot piece of moviemaking ass.

This bio was definitely not written by ChatGPT - unless you greatly disliked it. You’d be a fool not to want to meet and hire Adam Orton as a director: the greatest, only humble filmmaker to have ever existed.
