Adam Elliot: Master of Clay Story Telling

Adam Elliot, Australian creator of claymations: "Mary and Max" and "Harvey Krumpet" talks in a brief tell-all about the vastly changing world of cinema and claymation's role in it all.

If his films have not been on your netflix queue, than this matter should be rectified asap. These aren't children's films and they certainly are not feel good Pixar films either. You won't find jovial green ogres or talking donkeys, but rather mental disorders and unfortunate relationships told in a dark elegant humor.

"Harvey Krumpet was an amalgamation of about 8 people...I'm not very good at sitting behind a computer making up things out of thin air, so look out you could be next!"- Elliot
