Adam Elliot: Cousin – a short animated film

Adam Elliot (born 2 January 1972 in Berwick, Victoria, Australia) is an independent stop-motion animation writer and director based in Melbourne, Australia. His five films have collectively participated in over six-hundred film festivals and have received over one hundred awards, including an Oscar for Harvie Krumpet


At the 2004 Academy Awards ceremony, Elliot thanked his boyfriend, making history by becoming the first Oscar winner to thank their same sex partner.

We’ve been in love with his work since discovering his animated short ‘Uncle’ in the late 90’s.  We’re delighted to see he’s now sharing through his own YouTube channel.  Check out the incredibly moving ‘Cousin’ from 1997. It’s well worth the 4 minute investment.
