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 film only grew when he began crafting his own film. 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 another two equally exciting films.
