Blurring the boundaries between the fine and applied arts.
Adam Elliot has become one of Australia’s most celebrated animators, and certainly our most successful short filmmaker. His touching trilogy of short films, Uncle, Cousin and Brother have built his international recognition as a master storyteller. His shorts trilogy has participated in over two hundred film festivals and won over fifty awards, including four AFI awards.
But it is Adam’s latest short film, Harvie Krumpet, that has ensured his name will be remembered after his exciting Oscar win at the 2004 Academy Awards. The little plasticine character Harvie beat three of the giants of the animation industry, Disney, Pixar and 20th Century Fox - to win the coveted ‘best animated short film’ award.
