How I went from ‘dole, dumped & living with dad’ to beating Disney at the Academy Awards

Adam Elliot is the Academy Award winning Animator of Harvie Krumpet. He’s also one of Australia’s funniest and refreshing speakers and after dinner raconteurs, and he will be speaking at the Melbourne Event Organisers Summit on the 20th April at iconic Eureka89

Adam spent years animating blobs of plasticine in a rundown 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.

And the naked golden man? That’s his Oscar, which he’ll have alongside him as 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.
