Mumfin Book Designs

Hi peoples, Tim here.

Recently, Ryan's been writing a kids book called, Mumfin. So I thought I'd have a go at designing the characters. This is the little boy so far. There's also a little girl and Mumfin himself (a creature thingy) so I'll probably do them to when i have a spare moment.

We're considering doing it in anaglyph 3d (the red and green glasses kind) so I'll do some tests and see if it's worth doing. I'll post them up for some feedback too, once they're done.

Pluto - Baby Cruel Video


Well, we're finally aloud to reveal the music video we've been working on for New Zealand band Pluto. It was done on a fairly small budget and the 3 of us completed it in about 3 weeks. Apart from the initial character designs and the bg's, it was made entirely in Flash. Making this vid allowed us to experiment a little with flash so next time around we'll hopefully come up with something even better. Right click here and "save as" to check it out. (It's around 6.9MB)
The band are extremely happy with the final vid, so that's cool. They liked the vid so much that we actually got commissioned to create a 1 minute animated skit, featuring the characters, so we'll post that for you to see as well. Check that out here at
Look forward to hearing what you guys think!!

Hey Folks,

First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Hope you all had a good one.

Well, we got a great reception from all the people who saw our Xmas idents, so we've been commisioned to do 10 more 15sec idents featuring each of the presenters on C4 (NZ Music channel). So that's pretty cool. We'll hopefully post them as we go. So stay tuned.

Our new years resolution is to actually complete our very own kickass animated short film that will go on to win an oscar and win much critical acclaim! However It's a good chance that only part of that will actually come true, but you cant win 'em all.

Anyway, we'll keep you posted on our progress, so hopefully that keeps the pressure on us to keep working on it. Guess I better start writing a script then!!!

Seeya, Ryan
