Los Angeles, United States
As a teenager, Minnesota native Adam Stanzak was introduced to film-making through skateboarding. After investing in a Hi-8 camcorder, he filmed his friends at the local skate park and around town - unknowingly laying the foundation for the upcoming journey. He began developing a keen interest in visual arts and imagery.Taking video production classes in high school to exploit the school's editing software, he furthered his interest in cinema, inspiring him to explore new realms. Transcending with skits, documentaries and music videos, he honed a personal style that continues to grow with each project. His fascination took him into the darkroom where he began experimenting with photography, learning more fundamentals and developing black & white prints. Eager to learn more about the world and art, Adam moved to Los Angeles to tread fresh water. Making videos for local artists with childhood friend and collaborator Tony Oberstar, the two advanced their craft and began preparing for the years ahead.
