Adam Barton
Adam Barton
Executive Producer + Head of Development

Adam spends his time breathing down the necks of editors, tinkering with new content ideas and, when provoked, will step into the ring as a director who can take a project the full 12 rounds. He came to NYC right from Wesleyan University in the early aughts, and has been staying mostly out of trouble in Brooklyn ever since. Early film breakthroughs include editing two Oscar nominated short HBO documentaries and co-producing the SXSW Audience Award winner Kumaré. Since then he’s directed and produced projects for some channels (History, Nat Geo, Esquire, Epix, PBS, & Fullscreen), and led commercial projects for some brands (CapitalOne, Dell, Coca-Cola, Budweiser, Chase, MSG, The Global Citizen Festival) all while working on his jump shot, carving up fresh powder and taking abstract photos all over the globe.

Chloe Sabin
Chloe Sabin
Production Coordinator

A product of NYC’s indie film scene,  Chloe exhibits her own brand of hustleone that hinges on an ability to schedule and staff high-functioning productions, while leaving no penny unpinched.  Her previous experience as wardrobe assistant, paperwork tyrant, as well as her stints in front of the camera, give her an acute eye to anticipating the needs on any set. Her favorite assignments include maintaining zen levels of hydration and caffeination for crew and talent, playing with numbers, and attempting to predict the future. If you bring your own water bottle to set she will be your biggest fan.  Before joining Resonant Pictures Chloe spent a number of years supporting her sisters of the world as a professional bra fitter.  Did you know 85% of women are wearing the wrong bra size? We did not.

Alex Cullen
Alex Cullen
Director + Cinematographer

Alex is a nerd with a decent fashion sense and a compulsion to create that many have described as “obsessive.” Among his many obsessions, directing and cinematography top the list. His breakout in NYC was directing the viral commercial  “Love” for Honey Maid, a bold collaboration with the ad agency Droga5 that turned hate speech against the brand into a message of inclusiveness.  Since then, he’s made his mark in NYC with an eye for dramatic lighting and bold frames, creating work for clients like Jameson Irish Whiskey, Pandora Radio, The New York Times, and Adidas. His documentary work can be seen on channels like Epix, Viceland, and Al Jazeera. It is probably worth mentioning here that his first feature doc “Fair Chase,” which you can watch on Netflix,  was about a bunch of elite athletes running through the desert in pursuit of an elusive antelope. Come to think of it, this is a perfect metaphor for Alex’s life and career. Easily the least predictable member of the Resonant team,  Alex is often heard trying to convince his business partners to go white water rafting on a Tuesday and he’s been known to wear costumes to parties where it wasn’t required or requested.

Sam Bathrick
Sam Bathrick
Executive Producer + Head of Operations

With an editor’s ear and an auditor’s eye, Sam brings a sense of humor and a scrappy ethos to each production challenge. He’s not nearly as moody as his bio photo would suggest, but he’s happy to have you think so. His work has brought him to many corners of the world: first as a refugee caseworker in West Africa, interviewing people whose lives were fragmented by civil war. Later he was seen chasing musicians through the streets of Tokyo, Istanbul, and Miami for the BBC’s travel series Music Voyager. In NYC He’s directed some films (200 Miles, a Tribeca Film Festival premiere was his latest) and produced content for some of his favorite cultural outlets (Pandora, ESPN, and Madison Square Garden). As a father to a spry toddler, he spends his non-working hours changing batteries in robotic dinosaurs and blowing on chicken nuggets that are too hot. These days, he’s known around the Resonant office for an obsession with organizational systems to maximize efficiency. As the saying goes, “robotic dinosaurs don’t walk themselves.”
