Leeds. My Hollywood on a budget.


Having always had an inclination to favour the look and feel of films from across the pond, Adam made it his goal to achieve this cinematic aesthetic with what was on offer around him. This opened a rabbit hole of constantly being out of his comfort zone, getting into trouble and learning how to look at things in a totally different way. Adams talk is an insight into what goes into the stages of production on an indie level.

This talk took place on 19th July, 2017at Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen.

Adam Lyons

Adam is a Director and Cinematographer at Leeds based creative agency BlackBox.

After graduating in graphic design at Leeds University, he went against following in his fathers footsteps of getting a proper job and decided that telling tales and playing with lights was a much better use of his time.

In the 12 years he has been in the film industry, Adam has worked on a wide range of feature films, documentaries, TV commercials and music videos. He also is very fond of creating awkward moments and taking things just that bit too far.
