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. We 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, including my The Whale Story, screening on May 25th at 1PM.
