Today, we had a little fun at CloudKid (I swear we do work). We have been creating micro Halloween-inspired pieces of artwork, and today we had the chance to have a little show and tell – as well as a little Halloween merriment. After all, who doesn’t love a juicy piece of Candy corn? Enjoy the pictures, have a safe holiday, and remember to check underneath your bed before falling asleep.
For the last week, we’ve been hard at work on Fizzy’s Lunch Lab and a classified project, but we’ve also been working toward creating the greatest iTunes Playlist in recent memory – Saxy Time! CloudKid has been searching far and wide for the greatest sax-infused songs of all time. According to the official CloudKid rule book, a Saxy Time-nominated tune must meet the following criteria:
Please note: We collectively decided that only one Bruce Springsteen song can make the cut – We feel that the E Street Band abused the saxophone, but should be recognized for their contribution to the genre.
If you’re a soft-rock saxaholic, please join CloudKid’s mission and and share your stash. You no longer need to be ashamed. We’re not.
As you may know from our previous posts, we’ve been getting ready to serve up the second season of our Emmy-Nominated series, Fizzy’s Lunch Lab! The new season kicks off today with a rockin’ Halloween music video featuring Fizzy’s house-band, Freezer Burn. Starting November 5th, new monthly themes, webisodes and songs will start rolling out. The new topics include: calories, food choices, calcium, sodium, fiber and home gardening. The website will also be releasing 5 new online games, as well as 40 new printable recipes that encourage families to get out of the drive-through and into the kitchen. In addition, PBS will be airing 12 national on-air spots to introduce The Lunch Lab characters to a broader audience. Those shorts are slated to roll out in early 2011.
To get you into the Halloween spirit, here is Freezer Burn’s new video, “It’s Halloween Night” – enjoy!
Today we are releasing one of our in-house Flash production tools called Keyframe Caddy. Our animators use this tool to assist in doing some of the more menial animation tasks like lip-syncing. We did a little demonstration video as well as made the tool free for download from our website. Click here for more information.
We’ve all been working hard here at the studio, so we thought it best to get outside and get some fresh air. What better to do in New England in the Fall, but pick apples! We took a drive to Honey Pot Hill Orchards and snagged some awesome looking (and tasting) Macs, Cortlands, and Empires. Check out the pics!
