David OReilly exploded on the animation scene as a CG wunderkind, pioneering a raw digital aesthetic and singular filmmaking style. His body of work, spanning nearly every format imaginable, from short films to experimental websites to games to concept twitter accounts, always returns to fundamental questions about how we live our lives and what it means to be alive. His dark, surreal sense of humor playfully pushes against the edges of whatever medium or tool it’s constrained to, deconstructing the form while indulging its inherent expressiveness.
David will talk about what he has learned from creating 3d worlds in animation and video games, and describe his thought process in approaching different mediums. He will go into detail about his newest project ‘Everything’.
We will also screen a retrospective of his short works, and his feature film The Agency.
