BLACK LAKE

David OReilly / Black Lake

An evocative and spare exercise in computer animation by David OReilly and Jon Klassen, who previously collaborated on the U2 music video “I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight”. The video is intended to be viewed as a loop, and contains a ‘making of’ portion at the end. It’s a revelation seeing how elegantly Klassen’s design-heavy illustrations work can be translated into CG imagery.

O’Reilly creates animated short films using digital tools. He allows the natural voice of the digital image to speak through hastily rendered polygons, compressions artifacts, and trace elements of the interface.
