Adam Bonke

Adam started his career in London’s Soho, editing and compositing before realizing his talent as a director and returning home. Back in Denmark, he started as an on-set runner, did a few jobs location scouting, casting extras, and – with a start in Nobody Cph, he got a chance to pitch, to win the job, and all of sudden Adam was screaming “Action!” for the first time.

One year after having started as a runner, his first film won the 1st prize at the YDA Cannes. Since then, Adam has directed over 80 commercials in 18+ countries all over the world, as well as music videos, documentary-series, and a complete season of a Danish tv-series. In short, Adam is a very versatile director, greatly acknowledged for creating and bringing together astonishing images with humor that resonates with its audiences. When you don’t find him behind the camera, there is a good chance that you’ll find him experimenting with sounds and compositions for his music.

Adam is represented by Bacon Cph in Denmark and Sweden, and by AgentZoo in the rest of the world.
