    Projection showing animation from our ‘Rocquita’ short

    Our last presentation was in Sao Paulo at IED – Istituto Europeo di Design.  What a fantastic turnout! Thanks to all the Brazilian animation people who came along and made it such a success. 

    It was great to meet so many Mucha Lucha! fans there too!

  • Toon Boom/Animate Launch – BUENOS AIRES

    Fwak! continues travelling through South America.  Friday’s presentation in Buenos Aires was an interesting event; a more serious, contemplative crowd than in Mexico City attended the event and it was fascinating to observe the differences between the animation industries of the two countries.

    Our next presentation is in Sao Paulo Brazil on Monday; full details and photos of the whole tour when we are back in Los Angeles on Wednesday

  • Toon Boom/Animate Launch In Mexico City


    Okay, we did sneak in some Mariachis, tequila, a traditional Mexican floor show full of corazon y dolor, tequila, a visit to the Palacio Nacional and (naturally) a trek to luchador Super Astro’s cafe…

    …and finally our ANIMATE demo at MUMEDI (Museo Mexicano del Diseño) which went exceptionally well!  (Phew!).  Thanks to all the wonderful animation people in Mexico who attended. More pictures from the demo tomorrow when we get our breath back!
