    We’ve had a lot of fun…and a lot of frustration. Sounds like every creative endeavor, doesn’t it? Every time we think we can move something into the DONE pile, it seems to develop never-seen-before bugs. Yet–we ARE making progress (even if some of it is just getting back to where we thought we were the week before). We had a team meeting in an updated version of our app, with two new levels added, including our lobby level. We have more menus, more polished animations, new characters and a more robust backend.

    We also have more samples of MERCH. We’ve been testing out designs for t-shirts (short- and long-sleeved), sweatshirts and glasses. We have several that we love and they’ll be showing up here SOON.

    Can’t wait to show you everything!

    Ok, so the “part one” back in June turned into a whole summer disappearing. We were hoping to have reached a milestone with our demo before the end of that month, but forgot to take into account the more frenetic pace of a short summer term of graduate school, travel, kids at home, etc. We did make an enormous amount of progress on our demo this summer though. We now have a rough draft of the complete animation for 11 characters, the food truck area is done, the house is decorated, users can enter nicknames and room names to hang out with their friends. Everyone has done an amazing job. I love our team!

    We’re also re-vamping our “Flippity Flops” channel. We spent a lot of time thinking it over and we really want to consolidate our efforts under one theme. Soon we’ll put up more behind-the-scenes peeks at our motion capture and animation process, but they will have a different format and a different name. No worries though–we’ll definitely link to it from here so you can easily find it.

    For the same reason, we’ll be replacing our iFilmFlops t-shirts with Bacon Wrapped Avocado shirts. We’ll post the new designs soon. Let us know if you’d like one or if you think one of our other characters should also get their own shirt. The Hand has one, soon BWAHAHA will too, but if you’d rather have the Corazons or Mum or ZBBBD, shoot us an email from the contact section at the bottom of the page. If we get enough response, we might make some available for purchase. (Right now you pretty much have to work for us to get one.)

    Keep an eye peeled for updates! It’s getting exciting over here.

    Yep, we’re hoping for more news in a couple of weeks 😀

    Right now, we have our next short up on YouTube and TikTok. It’s a behind-the-scenes (BTS) view of the filming of  The Hand of Flopsville Animated Series, from the actors’ point of view.

    OK, well, I suppose it’s not “really” BTS since it’s all animated, but it is a fun look at what filming with a zombie-made drone camera might be like.

    Until next time–enjoy!
