Tomm Moore speaks about his next feature film

During the Cartoon Cine, that took place in Viborg in April 2013, Tomm Moore ("Brendan and the secret of Kells") presented his next film : "The song of the sea". The Cartoon Media had the kindness to share with us a video with Tomm Moore, who briefly resumes his presentation… but he didn't forget to mention TVPaint :)

If you want to know more about the film, we advise you to follow this official blog ! By the way, a conference about the work in progress of the Song of the sea will take place during the Festival in Annecy, Salle Pierre Lamy, on Friday June 14th at 11:15 AM..

Gigglebug : Charming 2D-animated app for iPad

Gigglebug

The same Finns behind the animation studio Anima Boutique have recently released an iPad app called "Gigglebug". This charming 2D-animated app for children is based on the simple idea that laughter is contagious.

Gigglebug is a tiny creature who’s particularly good at laughing. But some of his friends are equally good at being grumpy. The idea is to cheer up grumpy animals with tickle-like touchscreen gestures. All the animated sequences and characters gameplay in the app is animated in TVPaint Animation.

You can download the app for free on the Apple Store and with a one-time purchase you can unlock the 2D-animated story sequences and more grumpy animals to tickle!

If you like the artwork and the app you'll be glad to hear that there's a Gigglebug animated series coming soon.
