I love telling stories about family, the bigger the drama the funnier I find them. John Cassavetes is my favorite filmmaker; and I'm addicted to watching dog videos.
ADAM CHRISTIAN CLARK
A graduate of the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts, Adam Christian Clark began his career while still a student when he was hired to direct the hit CBS television show BIG BROTHER.
Following graduation, Clark worked as a roster director for Quentin Tarantino and Lawrence Bender's production company, A Band Apart. As a commercial and music video director, Clark has directed such notable artists as Kanye West, Jackie Chan, Gnarls Barkley, and Lupe Fiasco; as well as helming commercial campaigns for Pepsi, Motorola, MAC, Diesel, Lay’s, and Quaker State.
At age 25, Clark directed China’s first ever reality television series FASHION STAR. He would two years later return to China to shoot his second narrative short film GOODBYE SHANGHAI.
Clark’s narrative career began in 2007 while collaborating with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Charlie LeDuff on two projects, Clark’s first short film: THE EDITOR: A MAN I DESPISE, and BAG MEN, a feature screenplay for Plan B Entertainment.
Clark's critically-acclaimed first feature film, CAROLINE AND JACKIE was theatrically released in Los Angeles and New York after premiering with honors at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival.
Clark lives in downtown Los Angeles, and is currently in post-production on his second feature film NEWLY SINGLE.
NY TIMES - The true indie mentality and style are reassuringly alive in 2013 in “Caroline and Jackie.” It captures the awkwardness, loneliness and unacknowledged desperation that haunt us all but that are particularly poignant when seen among attractive 30-somethings.
THE WALL STREET JOURNAL - Visually polished and emotionally raw.
VARIETY - Displaying nerves of steel and a generous heart, helmer Adam Christian Clark takes a lot of chances with “Caroline and Jackie,” a tale of troubled sisters that keeps the viewer off balance throughout before delivering a payoff that serves as both catharsis and absolution.
HOLLYWOOD REPORTER - Their relationship will ring true for many viewers, and Clark's intelligent handling of it should elicit good word-of-mouth at arthouses.
NY MAGAZINE - Top-Notch!
REUTERS - The plot is complex, the performances brilliant. First-time director Adam Christian Clark has made a compelling film.
VILLAGE VOICE - Sounds like family to us.
GENE SHALIT’S MOUSTACHE - It's the first time in awhile that a scripted, dramatic film was able to play with my senses; the way CAPTURING THE FRIEDMANS did, in documentary form.
