Bart Dijkman - Billy (2005)
Billy is an animated video that tells the story of the Haggard family's fatal holiday in The Netherlands. The Haggards, an American family, wanted to spend time with their terminally ill mother in a quiet environment. We experience the dramatic turn of events through the eyes of little Billy Haggard. Bittersweet stage sets adorned with flowers form a glaring contrast with the poisonous conclusion of the story. Dijkman is an early adopter of the kind of these kind of pungeant, cynical narrative style and tragic humor that has become quite popular in Internet animation today.
