The son of an acrobatic prawn farmer, over the last decade Adam has spoken at virtually every type of event and conference, from the giants at Google and Apple to a bunch of hairdressers in Borneo. He leaves audiences thoroughly entertained, energised and worked out.
Far from an overnight success, Adam spent years animating blobs of plasticine in a run down storage unit in searing summer heat and freezing Melbourne winters. Despite running out of money, being dumped by his partner, moving home with his parents, and ending up on the dole, he was determined to finish Harvie Krumpet no matter what the odds.
Yes, Adam always brings his Oscar with him, and accompanied by a dazzling slide presentation, he gives a blow by blow account of his Oscar experience in Hollywood and how he took on the giants at Disney, Pixar and Fox to win his Academy Award.
Adam has made new films since winning the Oscar with some of the world’s leading actors that includes Geoffrey Rush, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Eric Bana, Toni Collette, and Barry Humphries. Viewed by millions of people around the world his six films have participated in over eight hundred film festivals and won over 100 awards. In 1999 he was the Young Achiever of the Year for Victoria and is a voting member for the Annual Academy Awards. He was recently declared a Melbourne Icon by the Lord Mayor of Melbourne, and is currently developing his new feature film.
