No doubt, magicians, played, an early key role, in the development of feature films, from Georges Méliès , to Harry Houdini, to Orson Welles and that's one of the reasons, Mr. Steinfeld, believes, in the expansion of the Art form of magic, mixed with film and television, now many years later, Adam, is very much involved in shooting, writing & editing his own self-produced projects.
"I shot many many shorts, said Steinfeld, working with my long time magic assistants, in my magic show, as the star actors, and crew...each time, I increased my directing and editing skills."
"You have to remember, I studied to be a filmmaker years ago, but the new digital film technology, has allowed me to experiment with various stories, on an ultra low, no budget projects, such as; Ask Madame Wonder?, Creezy, Magic Schmuck, 2nd Best Magician, Houdini Lives!, Magic Island, to a writing collaboration, of my novel, Houdini Lives! , with award-winning Boston crime author, Al Blanchard, and other comedians, and filmmakers."
