Seasonal Affective Disorder
Sunlight loving vampires? Sounds like a terrible affliction to have, but that is the premise of Paula Assadourian's Seasonal Affective Disorder. Featuring a vampire working on a beach filled with sun kissed babes as an ice cream vendor, it's a light hearted romp executed in a really fun, mostly line-less style.
Despite the nearly child like visual qualities that the short has, a few scenes drove this short into dark humor territory. Assadourian mentioned that the short was created during a stint in Paris, as part of an exchange program that Calarts is running with the top notch Les Gobelins academy in France.
