Director Biography - Andrew Akler

Andrew Akler began his film making career in 2013 when he set out to bring his very first original screenplay to life. Although Andrew has been composing original musical scores for film since he graduated high school, his passion for making movies only grew when he began crafting his own.

His first film, Wake Me, has gone on to win several awards via the festival circuit and has also allowed Andrew the opportunity to craft many more equally exciting films.

Love Bug, the second film in Andrew's repertoire is a departure from his usual dark style. Love Bug plays like a cartoon in live action, and is a unique tale of high school love and drama.

In the summer of 2015, Andrew crafted a unique and original screenplay called Batman: Patient Zero - A daring new take on the Batman mythos. His script garnered the First Place award for Best Original Screenplay at the Fan Fiction Screenplay Festival 2015 and also received a table read with some very talented actors. The story was so well received, that Andrew knew he just had to bring it to the screen.

Now, October 5th 2016 marks to world wide release of the fully completed film, made possible by the hard work and dedication of his incredibly talented cast and crew. Andrew is beyond thrilled to share Batman: Patient Zero with the world!

Now - Andrew brings you Courtside; A film about coping with loss and learning that when we think we've lost someone, they've never truly left.
