Portrait of Adam Elliot, Academy Award Winner, filmmaker, director, writer, sculptor and animator. The creator of stop-motion animation cult classics Harvey Krumpet and Mary and Max .This is a depiction of the conscious and subconscious creation of the stories and their forms, and how they are born in the brain of the creator who then become a beholder and interpreter. The personal story and life reflection in this portrait is deeply embedded in the representation of his characters and symbolic elements found throughout his films.
