David Adler was accepted into the prestigious National Film School of Denmark after having attended the Visual Arts & Design program at the Vancouver Film School.
Adler’s movies are most often rooted in particular historical periods or events. His first major student production HVID (WHITE) was a tale of patricide during the era of the great polar expeditions. SORT (No Man's Land) was, just as his award-winning game “1916 – DER UBEKANNTE KRIEG”, inspired by a young soldiers journal from the trenches of the First World War. During his time at the National Film School of Denmark Adler has developed his own style and technique for working with animation. This combined with a strong conviction that the media contains a much greater potential than its most common use for children’s entertainment has so far shown, means that this graduate has a clear mission for his professional future: to create emotionally engaging animation films for a mature audience.
