Violin

Producer/Director/Writer: Pat Yaney

How does one change classical music presentation to generate a broader appeal, while simultaneously making it seem too pretentious to be endured by anyone except the author? Violin is a computer animated two-man violin solo addressing just this concern.

What makes this cartoon disturbing to some, innocently funny to others? Why is it often found to be “just wrong” by the same people that cannot help but giggle? Why is it that this above description can apply to almost any two minute cartoon that can’t really be explained without ruining the cartoon for the viewer? Only the viewing of Violin can resolve these questions. Come. Watch. And wonder nevermore.
