It's like if David Lynch made a film with a bedtime story
The most striking aspects of "Telly" are its surrealism and animation. I don't think I've seen a film, short or long, that looks quite like this. Maybe someone else could draw a comparison, but I can't. The story, although kind of hard to describe, has to do with a little girl living with her father. The girl builds this television and... I guess she becomes possessed by it? Try watching the film and figuring the story out.
I financially supported "Telly" (just a bit) on the website Kickstarter before its release. I apparently forgot that it's completely digitally animated as opposed to handmade. It looks pretty handmade, though. As it turns out, this look is what the maker Evan Mather was going for. A strong testament to his skill as an animator. "Telly" may not be extremely heartfelt, but it still does a solid job of telling a weird story with weird animation.
