Beyond 3D: The Animated World of David OReilly
631 W 2nd St, Los Angeles, California 90012
Tickets: HERE

By David O'Reilly.

A look at the past, present, and future of David OReilly, an Irish filmmaker, artist, and writer based in Los Angeles. He began animating at the age of 14 and soon after started working at Shynola and Studio AKA in London. Since then, his commissions have included Spike Jonze's gaming sequences in "Her", the Cartoon Network's "Adventure Time," videos for U2, M.I.A., and animated sequences for Garth Jennings' "Son of Rambow."

Craving to explore his own ideas, he often leaves the professional world to focus on his own short films and experiments, stripping back 3D modeling to its bare, low-polygon form and freely incorporating glitches and other software anomalies into brilliantly warped narratives.

His visionary, mind-bending work -- surreal and disturbing short films such as "The External World" and "Please Say Something" -- have garnered over 80 awards, including Berlin's Golden Bear, the Cartoon D'Or and had premieres at Sundance and the Venice Film Festival, among others.

Most recently, OReilly has been writing for South Park, creating a app called Mountain, and designing a series of dark online narratives .
