Director Biography - Steal Adcock

I grew up with my aunt and uncle in a small town with not much to do in terms of the city. My first interest developed when I was three years old when my mother (aunt) had this old medical dictionary. I saw a picture of the human digestive system and asked her to explain it to me, and as soon as she did my interest in the human anatomy sparked. I participated in science fairs up until junior year in high school gaining experience along the way.

Back in fifth grade, however, my interest turned to the art of film-making after my teacher assigned me to make a live-action film for my school project that year. At first unsure, I commenced to complete this project and found that when you are the director and the writer you can make the story and the film whatever you want it to be, and that creative energy drove me to make more films with my friends outside school.

Now I am attending St. Mary's University with a major in English Communication Arts and a minor in Psychology, with a plan to attend graduate school for a Phd in Philosophy. I await to submit my full-length film, True Love Story, that I completed my second semester, freshman year of college, into three different film festivals, one being Sundance.
