About Adam

Adam Elliot is not only an Academy Award® winning Animato, but also one of Australia’s funniest, most unique  refreshing corporate speakers and entertainers. Adam has given his inspiring and motivating presentations to hundreds of groups all over the world, from the giants at Google and Apple to a bunch of hairdressers in Borneo. His anecdotes are timeless and extremely popular with a diverse range of audiences. Adam has spoken at virtually every type of event and conference, including business breakfasts, gala dinners and awards nights. He often receives applause throughout his presentations and leaves audiences thoroughly entertained, enthused and exhausted!

The son of an acrobatic prawn farmer, Adam has become one of the world’s leading independent filmmakers and ‘clay’ animators. His story and journey of how he won his Academy Award is one of the most funny and inspiring rags to riches presentations you will ever hear. He eclipsed three of Hollywood’s giants – Disney, Pixar and Fox studios, to win his Oscar – a classic David and Goliath scenario where Adam triumphed and in front of one billion people, gave his hilarious and moving Oscar Speech. His slide-show and anecdotes about what happened afterwards, along with his encounters with Clint Eastwood, Steven Spielberg and other Hollywood icons will keep your audiences enthralled and captivated.

Dedicated to his artform, Adam spent years animating blobs of plasticine in a run-down storage unit in searing summer heat. Far from the glamour of Hollywood, his plasticine would often melt and he would be forced to work in his underpants. Despite running out of money and ending up on the dole, he was determined to finish HARVIE KRUMPET and with conviction, persistence and passion, took on the Hollywood studios and won – proving that small businesses can take on the big guys and that with the right mind-set, anything is possible.

Adam’s five animated films are sophisticated and bittersweet tales for mature audiences, voiced by some of the world’s biggest stars including Geoffrey Rush, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Barry Humphries and Eric Bana. They have been viewed by millions of people and have won over 100 awards and have participated in over 600 film festivals.

His latest film, ‘Mary and Max’ starring Toni Collette, won a string of awards and was the only Australian Film to ever open Robert Redford’s Sundance Film Festival. His films have inspired many and have a cult following. They have been turned into books, plays and ‘Mary and Max’ is even being developed into a Broadway Musical.

In 1999 Adam was the Young Achiever of the Year for Victoria and is now an official voting member for the Annual Academy Awards.® ‘Mary and Max’ is now officially one of the highest rated animated films of all time and in-between his speaking commitments, Adam is currently developing his next plasticine epic. He was also host of the 2013 AFI AACTA Awards with Geoffrey Rush and Hugh Sheridan.

A naturally gifted, engaging and entertaining communicator, Adam Elliot shares his life story of hard work, persistence, patience and determination to finally win an Academy Award. He tailors his keynotes for all sorts of groups and has a wonderful collection of glowing testimonials. Clients often cite Adam as one the best speakers they have ever booked.
