A city of singing cats is preyed upon by a shadowy figure intent on performing a twisted feline symphony.
The film went on to win ‘Best Short Animation’ at the Australian Film Institute Awards and ‘Best Music in a Short Film’ at the APRA Screen Music Awards. After watching even the first ten seconds, you’ll understand why.
Watch a downtrodden, lovesick cat beat along to the poetry of Nick Cave in the award winning short film The Cat Piano.
The Cat Piano follows the story of a struggling beat poet who falls in love with a gleaming songstress in a bar. At the height of his entrancement a dubious character kidnaps her, whisking the singer away to involve her in his own dastardly plans.
It’s everything a deep Nick Cave fan desires – smoky bars, poetic musings, dusky settings and an underlying darkness make the film completely addictive from the get go. The cats are just a bonus.
While Cave’s voice is an obvious highlight, the unique animation style and simplistic musical accompaniment kick this production to the next level. It’s a must watch.
