Tavi Gevinson and her character in Cadaver.
FINALLY! You know when something is announced and then you get bits and pieces of news and then you wait and wait and finally feel like you should just give up on the whole buisness it’s been so long? Yeah we know you do. That’s how we felt about Cadaver, Jonah Ansell’s macabre, heartbreaking animated short starring Rookie EIC Tavi Gevinson, Katy Bates and Christopher Lloyd. Not only does Tavi voice the lead character, a reluctant, sensitive med student who begins to dissect a cadaver only to have him come to life on her, but contributes to the short’s soundtrack, performing Neil Young’s “Heart Of Gold” and Pet Shop Boys’ “Heart.” Tavi hinted in her Bust magazine interview that Hollywood might be her next stop, in what is already at just 16 years, a VERY accomplished life, and her performance in Cadaver is certainly a step in that direction. Watch the full short after the jump and let us know what you think in the comments!
