Van Leeuwen Vinyls - Adam spins some Ray Charles & talks filmmaking
You never know how amazing people are unless you talk to them right? In this installment of Van Leeuwen Vinyls we caught up with Adam and found out about his awesome kickstarter movie. Read on for more...

Meet Adam Khatib

We caught Adam spinning some Ray Charles on the vinyl one sunny morning and took a few snaps:

Stand Clear of the Closing Doors

While chatting with Adam we learned that he was a producer on a film that premiers soon called Stand Clear of the Closing Doors. Intrigued we asked a few questions...

Erin: What's this film about?

Adam: STAND CLEAR OF THE CLOSING DOORS tells the story of Ricky, a 13-year old boy with Asperger’s Syndrome who gets lost one day in the New York City subway system. While his mother frantically searches for him above ground, the sensory-sensitive Ricky is exposed to the cacophony, eccentricity, and menace found in New York’s underground (including some scenes shot during Hurricane Sandy, which came to figure into the film’s story), resulting in a truly authentic view into both the wonders and the horrors of what lies below.

Erin: Tell us how you got involved in this film.

Adam: I originally went to graduate school for Cinema Studies, and after completing my first year decided that it would be an interesting idea for me to become involved in filmmaking as opposed to simply film analysis and theory. I took on an internship with SeeThink Films and fell in love with the process of filmmaking. After my internship I moved into freelance production position and I continue to work with SeeThink on a variety of feature narrtive, documentary, and commercial projects.

Erin: When and where can we see it?

Adam: STAND CLEAR OF THE CLOSING DOORS premiers May 23rd at Cinema Village in NYC.

Erin: What would be your dream project?

Adam: That's a tough question. I'm still relatively new to the production process so right now I'm still hashing out what types of projects I enjoy working on the most. For me, dream projects are ones in which I'm able to best help a director with a strong vision realize their ideas. Seeing an idea go from the page to the screen, and seeing all of the hard work that happens between those two stages, is really exciting.

Thanks to Adam for the Q&A and we'll see you all at the screening right? Watch the trailer below:
