Amy L. Maddox
Principal / Creative Director
Amy has been a principal and creative director at Cortina Productions since February 2000. An award-winning producer, Maddox has over 25 years of experience in designing and producing media experiences that engage, educate, and inspire. She is an expert at collaborating with the client and exhibition teams to transform complex curatorial content into fully-realized films and interactive experiences.
A central force at Cortina Productions, Amy guides our story team in developing media content that delivers accuracy in compelling and emotional ways, and – along with Joseph Cortina – leads staff training and development services to team members as well as provides presentation services to our clients’ public and private stakeholders. She has been an advocate for understanding the exhibition’s goals early in the project to ensure each one of Cortina Productions’ media experiences is designed to meet our client’s storytelling and technology needs. She understands the value of iteration, user testing, and universal design when creating location-based media experiences on time and on budget. Maddox’s work has been honored with numerous American Alliance of Museum MUSE awards, CINE, Telly, and New York Film Festival awards.
Before joining Cortina Productions, Amy was the director of multimedia exhibits at the Newseum in Washington, DC. She earned a Bachelor of Arts, Visual Media, from the American University School of Communications.
