Please Say Something

David O'Reilly has created innovative animated short films using a raw, stripped down aesthetic (perhaps you will remember some of his animation for the "guide" sequences in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy). Xeni Jardin of Boing Boing described his style as "somewhere between Kubrick, Kaufman and Ketamine".

His short film "Please Say Something" won the Golden Bear for best short film at the 59th Berlin International Film Festival and is a moving tale of love, self absorption and domestic abuse involving a digital cat and mouse.

Check out the question and answer segment with O'Reilly from Boing Boing, where the artist describes his work exploring the production of "emotion and authenticity with something blatantly artificial and unrealistic. You can even do it without facial expressions."
