Tell Me is an animated short film about a love story, set on a surreal train ride. It’s purpose was to explore and document the traditional animation techniques that make a digital end-to-end animated film verisimilar – combining principles of composition, narrative, storyboarding, editing, animation and film aesthetics into one complete whole. Created over the timespan of 6 months, the entire project was scripted, storyboarded, edited and animated by a single artist.

Director: Domen Lo
Domen Lo, young slovenian digital creator and artist, produces most of his artworks in only two dimensions. Putting aside some exceptions his computer screen represents his canvas and his tablet represents his brush. Not focusing on the used media Domen stays loyal to his expression … the surrealistic motives often shock the viewer with their rawness and directness and emerge a wish to further explore the work and its message.
His style can most easily be defined as grotesque, hyperrealistic or surrealistic – his process consists of painting in a virtual space, allowing him to have complete control of the paint and the ability to mix different classic media that would otherwise not be able to coexist together.
The work plays with the idea of alternate reality, where connecting objects form a playful new visual symmetry, trying to connect to ideas of humans connecting to technology connecting to nature.
Domen is currently working on finishing this Masters thesis in illustration.
What is the point of art, if not to create a world better than reality? And what is the point of looking at art, if not to be forever changed by the experience. This is my view of surreal art. I love to put dreams on a computer screen, I love to give irrationality pride of place. I like to push your buttons. I want you to see the beauty and the fragility of things, which is sometimes only obvious when you see it completely out of context. I love to have no limits.
