Last year he gained mainstream notoriety for serving as the animation director on the Spike Jonze film Her( remember the videogame scenes?), and for directing, producing and animating the Adventure Time episode, ‘A Glitch Is A Glitch.’ His trademark stripped down 3d aesthetic has allowed him play with storytelling structure, varying from the typical to the absurd in content & execution. Expectations are non-existent with O’ Reilly. As with his latest gem, THE HORSE RAISED BY SPHERES.
The short is part of a greater story O’Reilly is produced on this website. Don’t worry, if you’re confused as to how to get to the shorts, just play around with your keys and watch the magic happen.
