Screening of animated shorts set at Skylab.

The first incarnation of Malt Adult Animation Nite back in November was such a hit, local animator Sarah Schmidt is already back for round two. Schmidt held the first Malt Adult event not only to promote work being done by contemporary animation artists, but also to offer fans of the form a chance to screen them in a space with other fans instead of at home on a computer screen.

“We had an amazing turnout for the first night. … This second screening we expanded from around 30 to 60 minutes. I am realizing just how many non-commissioned shorts are out there, and how well certain films flow nicely into others,” Schmidt said.
