Richie Adams is an award-winning filmmaker who cut his teeth as a title designer (’Babel,’ ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith,’ ‘Water for Elephants’) first under the mentorship of legendary title designer, Richard Greenberg (’Alien,’ ‘Untouchables,’ ‘The Matrix’), and for the past 12 years, under his own company banner, Louisiana-based River Road Creative.
As a title designer, Adams has worked with many of the great players in the motion picture industry, including Alejandro González Iñárritu and Doug Liman, as well as newcomers like Ryan Coogler, for whom Adams designed/produced the titles and special graphic sequences (cell phone sequences) for Coogler’s Sundance Grand Dramatic winning ‘Fruitvale,” and later Coogler’s follow up hit, ‘Creed.’
After several years in Los Angeles, Richie returned to hometown, Baton Rouge, LA, to form River Road Creative, a boutique live-action studio where he continues to deliver design and related services for film and television as well as directing/producing commercials, which have garnered awards and accolades at most major award competitions, including an EMMY® nomination.
As a film director, Richie’s recent narrative feature ‘Of Mind and Music,’ starring Joaquim De Almeida, Aunjanue Ellis and 2017 Oscar-Nominated Ruth Negga, played the 2014/2015 film festival circuit earning numerous audience and juried awards, as well as a nomination for the Best New Director Award for Adams at the Vancouver International Film Festival.
