The Seattle Experimental Animation Team invaded Portland last night with their Bloodbath & Beyond: The Little Shop of Animated Horrors. The event was held at Valentines, a lovely venue with high ceilings and outdoor tables. The animators set up three projections, one on the bar’s main window, and two on their big white walls, showing the SEAT collective film based on the 1960 film The Little Shop of Horrors as well as a reel of other animated clips from SEAT members.

It was a balmy evening and people mingled inside and outside. It was a great night, and a lovely anchor between the NW Animation Festival from last week, and the Experimental Film Festival this week. If you’re still in Portland, be sure to check out the EFF screenings, at least two SEAT members have films in them!

Turns out our friends at Interstitial Theatre are kicking off their Mobile Screen Tour on April 4th in Pioneer Square, the same evening as the SEAT Bloodbath & Beyond event at Zeitgeist. The Mobile Screen tour is a video gallery on wheels, where media work from 14 artists is showcased on a loop and accessible to the public.

The screen will be situated at TK Lofts (115 Prefontaine Pl S) from 5PM-8PM on Thursday, April 4th, as part of the Pioneer Square Art Walk. Check out Interstitial Theatre’s Kickstarter campaign they have going right now. After catching that, saunter over a few blocks to Zeitgeist Coffee (171 S Jackson St) where from 8PM onwards you’ll be able to catch the new SEAT collective film The Little Shop of Animated Horrors, playing on a loop on multiple screen on windows and walls along with other new animated work.

It’s going to be an epic Pioneer Square Art Walk!

SEAT is at it again! We’re creating a second collective film, this time based on the 1960 film The Little Shop of Horrors! What will it look like? Find out on April 4th at the premiere of the film at Zeitgeist Coffee at 8PM, as part of the Pioneer Square Art Walk.

AND, it will hopefully reach Portland as well on May 20th, as part of both the NW Animation Festival and the Experimental Film Festival.

BUT, in order to do all this we need some funds for projectors and projector stands. We’ve created an Indiegogo campaign that just launched a few minutes ago and will close on March 14th. You can see the campaign here. Please, consider donating! Contact Tess Martin (tess [@] for a full press release and flier. Also, check out our humorous fundraising video here:

Remember how the Seattle Experimental Animation Team has been making work on one portion of the big red construction wall on Capitol Hill? Specifically a portion of wall near the cone fountain inside Cal Anderson Park?

Well, this four-year project involving rotating animators is called Wallrus, and on Thursday, Oct 11th as part of the Capitol Hill Art Walk we are turning the wall into a screening space, and projecting the work created on the wall in the last two years. Here is the Facebook event.

Specifically you will get a chance to see Clyde Petersen‘s video for The Thermals, animated in chalk, Tess Martin‘s short film The Whale Story, animated in paint/pixellation, and works in progress from Amanda Moore, Webster Crowell (you may remember people roaming the park in rocket suits a few month ago?) and Otto Bulut (actually animating this weekend! So stop by the park to check that out also).

Since it’s art walk there will be snacks, beverages and live music!


Big Red Wallrus

Five murals, Five animators, Five larger than life experimental films.  Thursday October 11 2012 from 7 to 9pm at the North end of Cal Anderson park, join SEAT (Seattle Experimental Animation Team) for an outdoor peek at five films animated larger than life on the Sound Transit Construction wall.

Clyde Petersen, Amanda Moore, Tess Martin, Webster Crowell and Otto Bulut host three screens with finished videos and works-in-progress in an evening including live music, snacks and rocket juice.
