This comes after the video game trailer’s win at the 14th Vienna Shorts Festival, where it won the Vienna Shorts Jury prize for animation.

The jury statement read:

The “Jury Prize – Animation” goes to a film, which beyond being entertaining has a strong poetic and philosophical theme. It serves a highly educational purpose, including an important political statement, that encourages us to let our egos dissolve and gain a new perspective on the world.

The award goes to “Everything,” by David OReilly.

Now, the David O’ Reilly-directed short has become eligible for an Academy Award nomination under the category Animated short film.

Everything¬†is a video game available on the PS4, PC, and Mac. It’s a game where you can literally be everything, from a bear to a micro-organism.
