Please Say Something – Full Length from David OReilly on Vimeo.

Three years ago we were going on and on about how much we loved this tiny bit of animation by someone named David OReilly, and now he’s won the Short Film prize at the Berlinale for the above film, called “Please Say Something.” It’s about “A troubled relationship between a Cat and Mouse set in the distant Future.” It’s also a pretty extraordinary piece of storytelling that is entirely fresh, heartbreaking, lyrica,l and disturbing all at once. It recalls Krazy Kat, Felix the Cat, Chris Ware, Jason, and a lot of other things. We haven’t loved a cartoon like this since the Quay Brothers.

You can see more cartoons (executed in vector animation) at the link. Like we said, totally fresh and modern, in an unexpected way .
