Adam is a 1992 British 6-minute stop motion clay animated short film written, animated and directed by Peter Lord of Aardman Animations. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short and the equivalent award at BAFTA in 1992, and won two awards at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in 1993. It is based on the beginning of the Book of Genesis. It was distributed by Aardman Animations.
The film is a "spoof of the creation of life". Adam is a man who is created by the Hand of God and is put on this lonely planet. He does silly acts and does all sorts of strange things. When God realises that Adam is lonely, he makes Adam a friend. Adam, expecting it to be Eve, gets himself ready as if for a date only to find out his new friend is a penguin.
