Andrew Adamson began his career as a budding digital animator in his native New Zealand during the 1980s, but his rise in Hollywood paralleled developments in the CGI technology and a style of family entertainment that would become his calling card. With a whimsical graphic sensibility as well as an ear for story and dialogue appealing to both kids and their parents, Adamson went on to earn an Oscar for the $500 million grossing "Shrek" (2001), topping himself by bringing in nearly twice as much for the sequel, "Shrek 2" (2004). Adamson proved equally adept at live action, segueing into the fantastical by helming the first two installments of "The Chronicles of Narnia" series, where he cemented his role as the top force behind the highest grossing family franchise films of all time.
