Animator David O’Reilly is a 22-year-old filmmaker from Ireland whose unique raw style has garnered a lot of awards and opportunities. He created the music video for “I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight” by a little band called U2, and this trippy video PLEASE SAY SOMETHING that depicts “a troubled relationship between a Cat and Mouse set in the distant Future.” Take a look at this winner of the Golden Bear for best short film at the 2009 Berlinale. When I was 22, I think I was photocopying thousands of pages of legal real estate contracts for [insert censored name of meanest attorney ever], not winning film festival awards and directing U2 videos.
