| Momentous. Changed my view on animation.
As a film addict, I am often stumbling upon 'shorts' that are animated rather than film. And to be frank, I hate them all, because I never saw the value of animation vs live action. Until I saw "the External World" by David O reilly. It's magnificent. It's superb. It's honestly the one piece of animated work i always remember when people ask me about my favorite short films. Genre defining. Make sure to check his video games (yes) and his art installations. David is a genius.
