What are we up to Now!

Hey all, some of you may be wondering about our lack of posts recently, well I can tell you we've been hard at work on a series of 10 animated shorts for What Now? (a long running kids variety show here in New Zealand) called "Sparkle Friends".

Basically, we pitched the idea of taking the What Now presenters, or kid versions of them, and putting them into mundane situations (brushing teeth, playing cards, washing dishes etc) and turning it into an over-the-top japanese parody. So far it's been alot of work with crazy hours, seeing as we've had to produce 1 short a week, each one being 3 minutes long, but it's been really fun and has, definitely, evolved since it's conception into something we're really stoked with.

We're going to be posting up the 1st episode next week, as it airs this weekend (between 8-9am, Sunday 7th "What Now", for those Kiwis out there!), and we'll be posting some production work from the episodes as we go along, so stay tuned! But for now heres the 1st installment.....
