Who Am I?

Adam Hodnett – Journalist, Videographer/Photographer, Project Coordinator

Journalist/Videographer/Content Marketer/Project Coordinator

I come from journalism. I planned for a competitive, multimedia industry. I worked mostly in newspapers.

I ended up the 'last one in, first one out' a few too many times, and decided to make my own company — Folk Media Communications Inc. An idea that was rolling around in my head since university.

We now focus mostly on video, and content marketing. But I've struck up relationships with an amazing amount of talent in the region, and all over the world. Folk Media is now a hub. We facilitate complex multimedia campaigns with the best talent around. We believe consistency is key, and have assembled some pretty impressive teams over the years.

But I'm also still a journalist. I love true stories. I write as often as I can, frequently contributing to Brunswick News sections. I also love photography, and music.

My greatest accomplishment to date is the creation of the Nujignua'tegeg — a community news organization for Listuguj First Nation. We grew it from a biweekly printed newsletter, with a website and multimedia content, to team that really honed in on community participation and relevance. We enjoyed a lot of positive feedback.

Aside from that, I do a lot of the usual freelance videographer/photographer odd jobs – wedding videos, family portraits, and event photography. Business introductions, live music videos, and anything with a documentary style and a focus on a unique person or artist continues to occupy a soft spot in my heart.

But most of all, I love when a business or organization has a problem. I've been around enough solutions to likely have an answer for you, but more importantly – I know how to find them! Get in touch, I love brainstorming solutions!
