NZ animation gurus Mukpuddy have been drawin’ pitchas for a fair wee while now – you can keep up with their awesome work via their blog. They’re perhaps best known for the series “Sparkle Friends” on TVNZ’s What Now and their regional winning 48 Hour film short “Camp Fear” but there are lots of exciting things going on in the MukCamp so keep an eye on their blog for new developments throughout ’09!

For instance, in late Feb they’re hosting Flipbook to help draw the Auckland animation community closer together. Flipbook is an informal get together to screen cartoons submitted by the community, talk shop, have a few drinks and play some Guitar Hero xD so if you’re an animator in Auckland or the surrounds, make sure you head along! For those who aren’t in this exclusive club, keep an eye out for pics and/or video at the Facebook event page afterward.

The shindig’s going down at the Fordes Bar on Anzac Ave in the city – full details can be found here or on the Flipbook Facebook page!
