AUCKLAND CITY WINNERS 2014

Man!! That was an awesome night!! What a crazy good line up of films... the judges must have had a super tough time. Asylum absolutely nailed it with their ridiculously perfect film. Grand Cheval, Hybrid Motion Pictures and Lense Flare we're amazing as always... is anyone else talking about the house fire in Lense Flare's film? A goddamn real house fire!! Amazing!! And the rest of the films... all outstanding... some truly original and awesome films. Congrats to everyone.
We're thrilled to have walked away with 1st place and Best Animated Film... it was a amazing and genuine surprise.

Clunkiest compulsory line ever?

I think it's just one of those things. It's the one bit of dialogue we are all waiting to hear in the film and I imagine we all give that moment a mental tick and pull ourselves out of the moment (hopefully only briefly). It's like a Stan Lee cameo... no matter how they try to use him... it's still Stan Lee shitting up the scene ;)

I once asked a bunch of plumbers to come and do some work at my house... they could do 10 minutes work or a few hours, it was up to them. I told them I would inspect all of their work and pay a 10th of the invoice to the one who's work made me give a kick-ass thumbs up (I would also give a 2nd and 3rd prize coffee to really sweeten the deal). They said no guys... THEY SAID NO!! What a bunch of A-holes. I was offering them a great opportunity to hone their skills... I wasn't forcing them to come and do it. It was almost as if they had a very particular skill, a skill that they were trying to make a living off. Such greed.

Winky face.

AUCKLAND CITY FINALISTS + AWARD NOMINEES 2013

in reply to Rowox:

Hahaha... no 48Hours for us this year unfortunately. Schedule didn't allow. Great to see a bunch of names I don't recognise alongside some of the greats... should be an exciting final. We will return... at the very least we're due to have a complete render fail and miss hand-in by 30seconds ;)

Love in Decay - Behind the Scenes Video

It's a little late... but we finally got around to cobbling together the footage of us making 'Love in Decay' over the 48Hour weekend (including some Grand Final stuff). So yeah... behold, 11minutes of us looking like buffoons.

2012 GRAND FINALISTS & WILDCARDS

in reply to Rocket Boy:

We might be a full time animation studio... but we are only 3 people with pretty sub-standard gear. But we make it work for us... because the ideas trump tools. We still work in the exact same way we used to when we started up Mukpuddy as a hobby... same sensibilities... same sense of humor... same drawing style (sort of). Only difference now is, sometimes people pay us to make things... sometimes ;)

I hate the whole "amateurs Vs professionals" thing... I really do. Trying to find a reason a film didn't make it through seems more about personal justification. When we were starting out we would NEVER have wanted to be forced in to an "amateur" category... we always want to compete against the very best. No one gets anywhere playing in their own sandbox.

Now I'm gonna go call my Mum and tell her someone called us "professional"... it's a first!! Haha.
