Director Biography - Adam York

Adam York is an independent filmmaker from Sanford, North Carolina currently living in Charlotte, NC. Adam is known for his directing work on “The Devil’s Lettuce” – the award-winning comedic spoof of the propaganda films of the 1950s. Other directing credits include "The Presence", an independently produced sci-fi short about a Janitor who discovers something unusual in the shadows. Adam also served as Executive Producer for “Behind Comic Con Curtains” – a documentary exploring the world of fandom conventions and the interesting people that frequent them. He was also Line Producer on the feature film "Ringfinger", a LBGT romantic comedy set in Asheville NC, and produced in association with Third Eye Media and Eros Thanos films. Adam is perhaps best known for his work on "Scienstars" – a live-action, educational science fiction series that introduces ideas, practices, and crosscutting concepts from a new set of science education standards. Adam was lucky enough to serve as director and one of the showrunners, and is looking forward to further developing "Scienstars" in the future.
