SINGAPORE - A boy walks through a wasteland filled with discarded metal parts. Except for green railings that appear briefly, there is hardly any clue that this film is set in Singapore.

The film may be only seven minutes long but eight months of physical labour went into it - constructing sets with hot glue guns and hammers, crafting puppets and moving them around for every scene. Says Dr Yanyun Chen, 32, the project's art director:"Previously, the categories at NYFA were such that the animated films only competed with one another in technical awards.

The film's editor Lee Jiaying, 28, says:"Stop-motion is interesting in that it's both animation and live action. There's a camera, unlike 2D animation, so there's room to play with angles and lights." The first film from NTU to be selected for Cannes, Adam is about a mixed-race boy of Chinese and Malay descent caught between two families.
