PES (born Adam Pesapane, 26 May) is a director and animator of numerous short films and commercials.
Receiving a B.A. in English Literature at the University of Virginia, PES migrated to film as a storytelling medium. His use of everyday objects and stop-motion animation to create original material is instantly recognizable. His work has been recognized in the United States and internationally, especially the short films "Roof Sex", "KaBoom!", "Game Over", and "Western Spaghetti." An early influence on PES's animation style is the work of Czech surrealist Jan Švankmajer.
PES's first animated film, "Roof Sex," features two life-sized chairs having sex on a New York rooftop. Though only a minute long, the film took 20 shooting days to complete. In 2002, "Roof Sex" won the Best First Film award at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival. "Roof Sex" was featured at over 100 film festivals worldwide and won numerous awards.
