This event brings together a multitude of Portland’s creative minds and cartoon enthusiasts for a night of collective animation that culminates in an animated movie. Participants will be broken up into teams as the first set of six animators race to create eight frames in ten minutes, leaving their last frame on their light box. Starting with the previous artist’s last frame, the next set of people will produce another eight frames, and so on. Each animator will only see the frames he or she is currently drawing. At the end of the evening, six different collaborative films will be projected on the big screen for everyone to enjoy.
