I teased that a certain animator would appear again on the list and here we find ourselves returning to David Romero. I guess you could say tonight we have a sort of… “creature feature”. Babysitting shouldn’t be that hard, but something tells me that is going to be the least of Lilly’s worries.
Please enjoy today’s short: Other Lilly
First amazing use of point of view, completely make you nervous of what lies out of your field of vision a predicament this character is in. That ending… not how I expected it to end. I liked this because it kind of had a realistic portrayal of if we had to combat a supernatural creature such as this… we’d get effed up really quick. I guess this one relies more on the jumpscare type horror but doesn’t go full screamer nonsense I guess. I don’t necessarily dig the character designs in this but I think David Romero was trying to have characters who matched the environment a little better, and at least it did compared to midnight snack. Overall these animations are just fun because they feel like done before concepts, but the execution is delivered well that it’s hard to anticipate the end result. I like in how both of the Romero shorts there’s the classic animation thing were objects that are interactive with are distinct from the backgrounds, it’s fun but the end they don’t change the window until after the creature breaks through so that it comes as a complete shock. Can’t deny that Other Lilly is certainly shocking.
