Tom Fun Orchestra "Bottom of the River"
Wonderfully grim visual interpretation of a song by Tom Fun Orchestra, an eight-piece gypsy folk-punk ensemble from Nova Scotia. A bit of Brecht and a dram of Tom Waits, this gorgeously dark animated short packs a punch. Directed by Alisdair Brotherston and Jock Mooney of Trunk, the “Bottom of the River” video was showcased on BBC Films and nominated for Best Animation at the 2009 UK Music Video Awards. We say bravo, Trunk. Well done.
