PES is the creator of some of the most widely viewed stop-motion films of all-time including Western Spaghetti, Fresh Guacamole, Submarine Sandwich, Game Over, Human Skateboard, KaBoom! and Roof Sex. On his YouTube Channel alone, PES's films have been viewed over 600,000,000 times.
PES's uncanny knack for transforming familiar objects and people through stop-motion animation has earned him global recognition and dozens of honors, including an Academy Award® nomination for Fresh Guacamole in 2013. (It is the shortest film ever nominated for an Oscar.)
PES is the inventor of the stop-motion cooking genre, with his short Western Spaghetti earning Time Magazine's #2 Viral Video of the Year in 2008 as well as the Audience Award at Annecy in 2009.
In addition to his original content, PES has also directed over 75 commercials for major international brands including Corona, Honda, Android, Orange Telecom, Kinder Surprise, PlayStation, Sprint, Samsung and Bacardi. His Honda "Paper" spot received an Emmy® Award nomination for "Outstanding Commercial of 2016" and has collected numerous ad industry awards including the One Show's "Automobile Advertising of the Year Award." It was also recently added to the permanent collection at both the Louvre's Museum of Advertising and The Museum of Modern Art.
PES's most recent film The Fish - sponsored by Corona and Parley - launched on PES's YouTube Channel on Earth Day 2019 and speaks to the problem of marine plastic pollution.
