Leading up to next week's Virtual Worlds Expo in Los Angeles that we are sponsoring, Animax announced the launch of its new KID KONCEPTS initiative. Read the press release.
KID KONCEPTS leverages Animax's expertise in entertainment and virtual world development, in order to simplify the complexity most brands face with getting into virtual worlds. This includes creative scoping, positioning, core functionality, site differentiation, business model development and financial modeling. Animax helps clients determine the business case, investment and launch plans for entertainment, toy, confection, publishing and other kid-focused brands interested in developing a presence in virtual worlds.
KID KONCEPTS was founded on the success of Animax's work in building kids virtual worlds from the ground up, developing components for existing worlds, and ongoing world maintenance. Currently, Animax has multiple KID KONCEPTS clients with virtual worlds scheduled to launch Q2 & Q3 of 2009.

Strange Brew turns 25 today - in the US at least. The film was released on August 26, 1983. For those of you living under a rock, The Adventures of Bob & Doug McKenzie: Strange Brew starred the SCTV characters Bob & Doug McKenzie, played by Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis, who also served as co-directors. The venerable Max von Sydow co-stars.
And if you haven't heard by now, Bob & Doug are soon to return to a small screen near you in the aptly named TV show Bob & Doug - this time in animated form. The first season of episodes is in production now with an early 2009 air date.

The Animax website relaunched with more in-depth access to our portfolio. The site was built using Adobe Flash with a very nifty Adobe Flex backend that finally gives us a nice way to manage our award winning portfolio of work.
Not everything is in our public portfolio though -- a lot of our virtual worlds work needs to stay hidden since some of our clients are shy. Email us if you want to see all of our top secret, stealth projects.
