About Seattle Experimental Animation Team
Seattle Experimental Animation Team (SEAT) is a collective of animator/filmmakers who use a wide range of techniques to make films frame by frame. SEAT uses nearly every technique from classical hand-drawn to computer animation. SEAT's members make films independently, but group endeavors involve non-traditional screenings and interactive events such the Long Walk installation in Tolt-MacDonald Park in July 2011 and the ongoing WALLRUS installation/performance for Sound Transit in Cal Anderson Park. Our growing collective of award-winning animators includes Webster Crowell, Stefan Gruber, Sarah Jane Lapp, Salise Hughes and Tess Martin.

'Inter-Action' is a program of twelve films by SEAT that is touring Europe in October 2011. Curated by Tess Martin, these films explore inter-actions – action between each frame of motion as well as between each subject on screen. Made individually by twelve members of SEAT (Seattle Experimental Animation Team) these thought-provoking films reflect on love, insanity, faith and murder. Bruce Bickford appears in this program as an honorary member of SEAT.

'Inter-Action' premiered at the NWFF in Seattle, WA on June 16, 2011 and has screened in New York City at 92YTribeca on July 18, 2011 and the Anthology Film Archives (NewFilmmakers series) on July 20, 2011. This European tour marks the first time most of these films have been seen overseas. These are the upcoming tour dates:

London: The Horse Hospital, Sat Oct 8, 2011
Newcastle: Star & Shadow Cinema, Wed Oct 12, 2011
Groningen: VERA Zienema, Mon Oct 17, 2011
