Starting on Sept. 16, the site Flipnote Hatena (http://flipnote.hatena.com/) will feature shorts made by Aardman Animations using Flipnote Studio, the free animation tool available for DSi. Aardman will be producing 12 shorts, which will roll out through Christmas. Tim Ruffle is producing the shorts, the first of which is titled THE SANDWICH TWINS.

Videogamer.com quoted Ruffle as saying, “I had a lot of fun making these. Flipnote is so simple to use that it’s easy to make short, fun animations -- but there’s a surprising amount of features there too, meaning you can make your creations more complex as your confidence grows. Budding animators will find this a great way to get creative!"
