We’re delighted to announce the addition of London based director Adam Kaleta to the roster at Dark Energy. Adam brings over 15 years experience directing namely automotive and sports commercials for a host of major brands for TVC’s online content and documentaries.
After a fairly long stint working in various Soho post and edit houses (where he initially met Dark Energy founder and EP Matt Brown in the early 90’s) he then went on to become Head of MTV Sports Europe which led him into directing a handful of award-winning sports films such as Surf (O’Neil Deep Jungle), mountain biking (Tricks & Stunts) and snowboarding (Arctic Challenge) he continued his TV career having also directed a number of cutting edge documentaries for both BBC and C4.
Having then developed an acute eye for style, detail and connective narrative, Adam combined his extensive skill set and moved into the automotive world directing campaigns and content for high profile brands such as Ford, Bentley, Range Rover, Land Rover, Mercedes, Kia & most recently Renault.
He’s also worked with a host of stars and well known celebs such as Jay Leno, Bradley Cooper, James Cracknell and Chris Froome as well as being highly skilled at crafting believable performances from unknowns and non-acting talent alike.
Twenty years on from sharing a flat with Dark Energy founder Matt, Adam is now happily re-united with his old flatmate from the 90’s and looks forward to directing some fresh new work as part of the Dark Energy roster.
