ANDREW ADAMSON (Director/Screenwriter) made his directorial debut on the first "Shrek,” which won the first Academy Award® presented for Best Animated Feature. He is next set to direct the live-action film "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” based on the classic book by C.S. Lewis. The film will be shot in Adamson's native New Zealand. He is also collaborating with "Shrek” co-writer Joe Stillman on the screenplay for another animated feature for DreamWorks, currently titled "Truckers,” which Adamson will also direct. "Truckers” is based on Terry Pratchett's best-selling fantasy trilogy known as The Bromeliad. 

Adamson first joined PDI—now PDI/DreamWorks—in 1991 with an extensive background in visual effects. His credits as a visual effects supervisor with PDI/DreamWorks have included the films "Angels in the Outfield” and "Double Dragon.” He has also worked on the visual effects for such films as "True Lies,” "Heart and Souls” and "Toys.”

Adamson also served as a key member of PDI/DreamWorks' commercial division on numerous award-winning spots, including Converse's "Planet Kevin,” Dow's "Scrubbing Bubbles Greatest Show,” and Miller Genuine Draft's "Juke Box.”

Apart from PDI/DreamWorks, Adamson's work as a visual effects supervisor includes the features "Batman Forever,” "A Time to Kill” and "Batman & Robin.” He saw his visual effects work on the two "Batman” films short-listed for Oscar® nominations by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences.

Adamson began his career in computer graphics nearly 20 years ago in Auckland, New Zealand, as a computer animator at The Mouse That Roared. In 1986, he moved on to the post of design director/senior animator at Video Images Ltd., where he worked on a variety of broadcast logos and television commercials.
