Andrew Roddewig began his career as a media guru at a very early age. At sixteen he was selected to be the Program Director for WLTL, a nationally awarded community radio station located at Lyons Township High School in the western suburbs. During his time at WLTL the station received numerous awards in professional radio competitions. Andrew was the recipient of a National Communicator Award for his local news show “People, Topics and Issues”. After graduating from Lyons Township he chose to immerse himself in an environment drastically different from the suburbs of Chicago. Andrew attained his B.F.A. from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). At SCAD he learned the technical craft of filmmaking. As Vice-President of the Savannah Filmmakers Collective, he was responsible for working with faculty to promote the works of students and alums. During the Savannah International Film Festival, Andrew organized local stores to screen students’ works in their windows as a way for SCAD film and television students to gain exposure during the week of the Film Festival. After college Andrew moved to New York City, where he worked as a freelance film/television technician. In NYC Andrew learned what makes for successful production and management by working at every scale of production, from mega blockbusters to small independent films. After five years in New York, he returned to Chicago in the summer of 2009 and co-founded Clarion New Media, a company specifically focused on creating video content for the web. Since then, Clarion New Media has produced web videos for a wide variety of clients, including professional services companies, restaurants, not-for-profits, and artistic organizations. Andrew volunteers with Sixty Inches From Center (SIFC) as Media Director and a Board Member. SIFC is a not-for-profit Arts Archive focused on exposing the public of Chicago to art that exists outside the recognized institutions. Andrew produces special video content for the site and events, and trains new volunteers on basic production techniques in photography, audio recording and video recording.
