David OReilly "Alien Child" for Spike Jonze's HER

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 02, 2014
If you remember, Spike Jonze's film "HER" had a bunch of really fantastic artistic touches, not to mention some fantastic film sequences shot in Shanghai. Juxtapoz cover artist Geoff McFetridge covered office walls with his drawings, and today, we wanted to take another look at David OReilly's animation work that coincided with shots inside Joaquin Phoenix's apartment. The "Alien Child" hologram sequences were all designed, 3d modeled, and composed by the former Jux feature artist OReilly. Another great example of how great filmmakers like Jonze are including the best of the best in art to help create his films.

Former Juxtapoz featured artist, David OReilly, created this animation as part of Part of Tim and Eric's "Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax." This is not good for work (NSFW) but chances are you are just waiting in line to take back a cardigan right now, so enjoy.

David OReilly's new film "The External World" now in Full-Length

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 09, 2011
Last month, when we showed you the trailer for Berlin-based David OReilly's "The External World," we were confused by his description of the film, "A boy learns to play piano." There was no piano in the trailer. Now, after screening at the 67th Venice Film Festival and Sundance 2011, OReilly has released the full-length, and there is a boy learning piano. Watch in full after the jump . . .

The External World Trailer by David OReilly

We featured Berlin-based David OReilly in the April 2010 issue of Jux, and we learned that the artist used digital tools to create animated short films. U2 liked him so much that they had OReilly direct and create their "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight" video. Song was awful, video was amazing. We look at OReilly's new project after the jump . . .
