ADC-BUTTER-Curators1David Wittlin

David Wittlin has been immersed in the world of filmmaking for nearly a decade. Working on commercials, TV and feature film he decided to make the switch to working almost exclusively to online video to be more a part of the creative process. In 2011 he founded Rocketship Creative with a jack-of-all trades mindset—mixing his skill set for shooting, editing and motion graphics—to independently produce online video for corporate and non-profit clients. In 2013 he teamed up on a 9-part web series for the International Rescue Committee which won a 2013 Webby Award Honoree for Public Service and Activism. Prior to this, David worked at Beliefnet as a producer. Within a year he helped them win a 2007 Webby Award for Overall Web Excellence and a 2007 ASME National Magazine Award for General Excellence Online.





This month’s BUTTER will feature a special surprise from our friends at Tunica Magazine — a receptacle of international culture based in New York, which acts as a membrane to capture and showcase various talents; combining disciplines, and haring through ideas and styles.

Stay tuned for details!
