How does he do it? How can something made out of plastic or steel become an inviting dish? It all happens thanks to the magic of stopmotion. The recipes he makes up seem so natural that you almost want to take a bite of what you're seeing on the screen.
Adam Pesapane (1973) received his BA in English Literature at the University of Virginia, but then decided to become a storyteller and he is now a worlwide famous movie director and animator. His style his immediately recognizable. His shorts are all under 2 minutes. He is somewhat able to find the right object with the right shape and color to emulate what he wants. As I mentioned above, his favourite theme is food. After a few shorts that aired in many film festivals around the world, PES went viral in 2008 thanks to Western Spaghetti, his first food-based short. Bon appetit!
PES is now working on two feature films: in March 2012 it was announced that PES would be writing and directing a movie based on the Garbage Pail Kids, the popular 80s trading card game designed to parody the Cabbage Patch Kids.
In September 2012 instead, WIRED magazine reported that PES is working on a movie called "Lost & Found" based on an original idea by PES himself. He's collaborating with Seth Grahame-Smith, writer for "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and Tim Burton's "Dark Shadows".
Both movies will have his distinctive signature style.
