We were cruising the web the other day and ran across the work of Eoin Duffy, a filmmaker and animator based in Vancouver. His work is thoughtful, cutting edge, experimental, and sometimes quite startling. But in particular we were struck by one piece of his, “PBS Budget Cuts :(“
It is just twenty-six seconds long, and simple to the point of abstraction. It contains only a caricature of Donald Trump, another cartoon which may or may not recall Elmo, and a child’s voice. For a moment, it seems almost innocent. But then…
Do give it a watch when you get a chance. Duffy’s message is, alas, all too profound, and his story all too true.
