Event description

Description

This talk requires a (free) seat reservation. Reservations will be made available to book at 10am on 4/19. These tickets are first-come, first-served. Please note that this event is part of the Berkeley Center for New Media's Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium, held in conjunction with Arts + Design Mondays @ BAMPFA. All lectures are held in BAMPFA’s Osher theater. Reservations are limited to the amount of seats available in the theater.

SEAT RESERVATIONS POLICY: You are only permitted to reserve one seat at a time (one name per reservation). If you are able to secure a seat reservation, please be aware that if you are not seated in the theater by 6:30pm, we will be opening up the theater to people waiting at the door. We will not be holding seats and will not allow anyone in the theater to save seats for late attendees. At 6:30pm, A+D staff will fill any remaining seats in the theater on a first come, first serve basis with people who have opted to stand in line at the door. Please know that if you choose to stand in line at the door without a reservation, we cannot promise that any seats will become available.



Adam has spent his life gathering skills that allow him to take what's in his brain and make it real. He's built everything from ancient Buddhas and futuristic weapons to fine-art sculptures and dancing vegetables.

In 1993, Adam began concentrating his career on the special-effects industry, honing his skills through more than 100 television commercials and a dozen feature films, including Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and Episode II: Attack of the Clones, Galaxy Quest and the Matrix sequels.

In 2002, Adam was chosen along with Jamie Hyneman to host MythBusters, which premiered on Discovery Channel in January 2003. Fourteen years, 1,015 myths, 2,950 experiments, eight Emmy nominations and 83 miles of duct tape later, the series ended in March 2016.

Today, Adam stars in and produces content for Tested.com, including behind-the-scenes dives into multiple blockbuster films (including Ghost in the Shell, Alien Covenant and Blade Runner). He also produces and stars in his Brain Candy stage show with Vsauce's Michael Stevens.
