Midnight Madness

At midnight tonight, or maybe a little afterwards, take a look here. Disney magic happens in two-and-a-half D.

Starlight Starbright

ANIMAX was just asked by the Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation to create a DVD version of the award-winning website Coping with Chemo that we created for them last year.

We're also creating a series of websites to help kids understand a range of health related issues including sickle cell anemia, cystic fibrosis, kidney failure, what an IV is for, and a few other topics. We've actually been doing a lot of health industry work where we use animation to help communicate difficult subject matter in a more palatable way for children and adults.

Little Devil

ANIMAX created a game called Cursor Grabber for Fox Studios' Grab.com. See if you can keep your cursor from getting eaten, burnt, sucked into a vacuum, exploded, stolen or mangled by a little red devil. He's fast, so watch out.

Thank God for KCRW!

Okay, maybe that's a bit much, but we have to thank KCRW for one of our favorite clients, SL-Tech. SL-Tech offers a range of solutions for school districts and cafeteria systems as well as for families with kids in school.
After hearing a profile about them on NPR's All Things Considered, we picked up the phone and cold called them. That one call spiraled into us helping SL-Tech reconnect with their business and consumer client base in several new ways, from a wholesale identity campaign to marketing collateral production to character animation to a pending redesign of their website (due in January).

We must give props to Dale Carnegie for their cold calling class - cold calling is evil. It's ugly and dehumanizing and usually a waste of time. Until you happen upon a gem.

Thanks Dale. You're swell.

Disney Countdown Begins

In a few weeks you'll be seeing something very magical appearing over on Disney's site. Animax is very excited about it and hope you'll be as well when you see it. But for now, it's a secret. Ssshhh.

Animax is #1!

Well, actually Chicken Little hatched from the weekend as the number one movie at the box office. And of course, it's all because of ANIMAX and our contribution to the writing of the film. :)

Princess Enchanted Christmas

Starting today, you can get your Disney Princess: A Christmas Of Enchantment DVD. ANIMAX Entertainment animated all the classic Disney Princesses including Ariel, Cinderella, Belle, Aurora, Jasmine, and Snow White as they perform an all-new song that celebrates the beauty of the season. We produced the animation of the classic characters using Macromedia's Flash and traditional techniques. Find all things Princess at Disney's site.

Chicken Little

It's coming. It's almost here. The Disney film Chicken Little that is. We were writing consultants on the film that hits theaters this Friday. Make sure you keep your head covered in case the sky really does fall.
