A slew of SEAT animators have pieces in this year’s Local Sightings Film Festival, a showcase of work from the Northwest organized and held at the NW Film Forum here in Seattle. It runs from Oct 1-6, and the most animation is in the ‘Drawn to Moving’ program on October 2nd at 7PM. Here are the films by SEAT filmmakers:


Drawn To Moving

A Program of Animated Short Films

Gentle Giants

(Clyde Petersen, Seattle, 2010, 1 min) The Brontosaurus family enjoys lunch with the Stegosaurus and prehistoric moths.

The Man Who Shot the Man Who Shot Lincoln

(Drew Christie, Seattle, 2010, 5 min) An animated interpretation of the strange life of Boston Corbett.

Crashing Waves

(Britta Johnson, Seattle, 2010, 7 min) Castaways perform strange tasks on a deserted shore.  Are they gods, or have they been driven mad by their predicament?

Celluloid Heroes Never Really Die

(Salise Hughes, Seattle, 2010, 6 min) What a celluloid hell might be like…but celluloid heroes never feel any pain.

I’m sad to say I’ll be out of town for this but I am super excited to see The Man Who Shot the Man Who Shot Lincoln eventually.

There are also two of Clyde’s Petersen’s works in the music video program on October 3:


Backyard Music

A Program of Music Videos

Belly of June

Laizzes Les Bon Temps Rouller

(Clyde Peterson, Seattle, 2010, 4 min) A film of titanic proportions, animated paint on an Ikea-dresser constructs a multi-plane, music video for Northwest rockers Quasi.
