Adam Pitzler grew up near Seattle, WA. His love of film was cultivated from an early age. By age 10, Adam was making amateur videos about stuffed animal cage matches with the kids from around his cul-de-sac. In high school, Adam started writing seriously for this craft and others.
Unsure of the shaky footing film school brought, Adam instead earned a Master’s degree in Business (MBA) and decided to pursue filmmaking independently of film school. After working on a web series for a few years, Adam gathered as much local talent as he could, and tackled his first Indie feature: Manhandlers. Which won Best International Horror/Comedy at Cal-Tex Worldwide Horror Fest at it’s inaugural festival in December 2015.
