David O’Reilly: The External World short film

Matt Taylor from Sixty40 Reader Find

By Matt Taylor from Sixty40 in New Film on Saturday 20 August 2011

Mr O’Reilly is a unique breed amongst animation directors, having both style and substance. I’d call him an auteur, but he’d call me a nasty name or send me a virus. This short film left me more satisfied after 14 minutes than many feature films can do in 90. And heck, you can buy his […]

Brilliant Adventure Time cartoon series

Paul Sprangers from Free Energy Reader Find

By Paul Sprangers from Free Energy in Video on Saturday 14 May 2011

This is the perfect cartoon. It’s like a person with a well-developed personality. It’s gentle, and has a wide-eyed enthusiasm for pure imagination, but the characters use contemporary, up-to-the-minute slang and usually deal with insane situations in realistic ways. It is one of the most weird, creative, and satisfyingly entertaining shows I’ve seen in a long time. Also, the animation reminds me of late 80s computer games or something made on MS Paint.
