Flipnote Hatena Weekly News: September 10, 2010

Hello guys! Here is the weekly news!


Hello from all of us on the Flipnote Hatena team. This is Aaron at Hatena’s offices in Kyoto, Japan with another edition of our weekly news blog.

Earlier this week, we posted the winners of the Flipnote Hatena 1st Anniversary Contest. If you haven’t already seen them, please have a look at the link below:

Flipnote Hatena 1st Anniversary Contest Winners

We enjoyed seeing your ideas about the concept of “time” last week, and would like to thank all of you who took part. This week we’ve chosen a new topic that is based on one of the fundamental concepts of animation called “Squash & Stretch”. We hope that taking part in the weekly topic can help you to improve your animation skills, and welcome you to experiment and have fun when you create your Flipnotes.

One of the goals of this news blog is to give you the opportunity to try new things and become better animators, and we hope that the weekly topics and Flipnotes that we feature here can both entertain and inspire you.

From now until September 16, 2010 (Thursday), you’ll get one chance to win a prize for every 10 stars you exchange for themes in the Color Star Exchange. If you’re lucky you might win the weekly limited edition theme.
