Clint Alphin has a world premiere this week for the video of “Talkin’ Socrates Blues.” But before we get into the video interview with Alphin, we wanted to hear from the video’s animator, Neilson Hubbard.
“Clint wrote a song that is as timely as any great folk song can be,” Hubbard says. “Like a singing Mark Twain, he navigates the land mines of modern culture with wit and bite. We were so excited to be able to take that humor and perspective into the world of animation and run wild with it. We were allowed to visually represent that same technique of the song—to be able to have a critique on society while making everyone laugh in the process.”
Now for Clint’s thoughts about the song and video:
DittyTV is happy to offer this world premiere video for “Talkin’ Socrates Blues,” and then tune into the network Wednesday night, July 15, at 11/10c for the DittyTV Debut on The Curve.
