Adrian grew up in the Namibian Desert. After studying art and photography in Johannesburg he started working in motion graphics and animation where he quickly developed into a versatile director all around. His natural ability towards a wide multi-focused approach to direction has allowed him to explore many different aspects of his craft - a natural sensitivity for humor and storytelling ,an efficiency in complex VFX and a strong aesthetic sensibility. Most recently his work integrating a strong CGI component looks towards the future of directing and how best to ‘humanize and integrate’ new technical possibilities without sacrificing believability or beauty.

As a contrast to his technical finesse, Adrian’s photography resonates with an appreciation for simplicity and reduction. He is happiest returning to the desert, taking pictures and camping with his wife. He hopes to direct one of his photographs into a film soon.
