Hailing from the deep south of the United States, Adam Wingard was just 24 when he finished Pop Skull, a film he directed, co-write, edited and produced. Made for around 3,000 US dollars, it managed to capture the attention of major French distribution company, Wild Bunch. The film went on to premiere at the prestigious Rome Film Festival and the American Film Institute Film Festival.
His dark and sometimes abrasive directing/editing style has been compared to directors such as David Lynch, Darren Aronofsky and Shinya Tsukamoto. As well as directing, he shot, edited, co-wrote and co-produced the film.
Adam started making films at just 19 with his debut feature - a slasher horror called Home Sick.
