Thesis: Steamboat Willi (1928), Please Say Something and Bolt (both 2008)

In my thesis work I am featuring the greatly appreciated David O'Reilly whose webserie Please Say Something explores ways to find new aesthetics for animation with the new tools of the trade. I realised that in doing so, his work gets closer to the earliest works of Disney like Steamboat Willi from 1928. Abstraction of form, movement, sound and event relationship have much in common, while of course O'Reilly applies much more current storytelling structure and a format appropriate for the Interweb. High speed Soap Opera.

In the meantime Disney's new feature Bolt does the "old eye candy with cute puppies and some Pixar flavour" trick.
