PESFreshGuacHeaderStop motion animator PES is best recognized for his commercial work with Scrabble, Bacardi and Coinstar, but he just picked up a Best Animated Short Oscar nomination for “Fresh Guacamole”. The premise of the short is simple–an unseen cook uses a series of unusual ingredients to prepare a bowl of guacamole. Although the plot is not revolutionary, the imagination and execution is. Toss in exceptional sound editing and you have a short that is front runner for the Academy Award.
