"The Cat Piano"

The Cat Piano is a beautifully animated, short film made in Adelaide by The People’s Republic of Animation. It was voiced by Nick Cave, written by Eddie White, and directed by Eddie White & Ari Gibson, in 2009. 

The Cat Piano won awards at a heap of Festivals, including Flickerfest, Melbourne International Film Festival and Sydney Film Festival, and made the Oscar shortlist for the 'Best Animated Short' category at the 82nd Academy Awards in 2010. 

It is also the best example I have come across of a short film being marketed across the social media spectrum. You can read about the film, listen to the soundtrack, check the vital statistics, discuss it on Facebook, buy the DVD, or simply watch it, at several locations. See the list below the video window below.

Note: This is not a cartoon for children.
