‘Please Say Something’

'Please Say Something' by David O'Reilly

David O’Reilly’s new animated short, ‘Please Say Something’ is a breath of fresh air.

Here we have a troubled Cat and Mouse love story, expressed in a way that is refreshing as a Gin and Tonic on a hot summer’s day. The shots are reminiscent of video games, the characters are irrestibily charming and the sound effects are oh-so-cute.

The first 20 secs were abit jarring though, I almost turned it off. Shots quickly jump from one another and the aesthetics are very crude to say the least. But when the characters squeak for the very first time you’ll fall in love instantly.

I haven’t seen a short this good for quite a while. I saw it 3-4 times in 24 hours!
