Markus Magnusson’s entry to the Animation Sequence Project, Cat Mayhem!
What do you get when: you cross visions of Stonehenge, a demon, a robotic giant, and a supernatural cat? You get Guilt—a Vimeo “staff pick” award-winning film by 21-year-old filmmaker, Tobias Larson. (Warning: Gory scene, NSFW 01:49).
Of course I would post this. How predictable of me.
A few years ago now on one of my many internet safari outings, I remember stumbling upon an animated gif of what I now know was a Cat Piano. Fascinated by this demonic instrument of evil, I delved into it’s history to see what I could unearth, thinking to myself “This would make a great idea for a animation some how”. However, unlike the extremely talented directing duo of Eddie White & Ari Gibson, I left it at that. And I’m extremely happy that they perused their idea! What we have here is a wonderfully dark tale narrated by none other than Nick Cave. A truly great animation short that you can’t help but become engrossed within it’s world and enjoy every moment.
You can also find the cat pianos potent influence in the recent Coke Yeah Yeah Yeah commercial, with Calvin Harris.
