The story of a career (Adam Elliot, ACEC 2010)

Adam Elliot was the second keynote speaker at the ACEC 2010 conference. He spoke most entertainingly about his life and his career. It was a story of a struggling artist who spent four years making Harvie Krumpet - a short animation movie that in 2003, won the Oscar® for Best Animated Short Film.

He initially wanted to be a vet but did not get the math and science grades necessary. The careers advisor was not very supportive and Adam ended up at the St Kilda craft market.
