The Maelstrom International Fantastic Film Festival returns to Seattle this coming weekend. The Animation Shorts program is screening on Saturday, October 6th at noon at the SIFF Film Center. Click here to buy tickets.
The program consists of 14 shorts, including Don Hertzfeldt’s It’s Such a Beautiful Day. If you didn’t catch this when Don had his own retrospective at SIFF Cinema earlier this year, I highly recommend going. The trailer is below.
The other 13 shorts seem to be roughly 50% computer animated and 50% either stop-motion with puppets/objects or drawn animation (some with heavy compositing)- a pretty good ratio!
