Final Aardman Flipnote Hits DSi

Posted by James Newton

Last call for animation wizardry

If you've got a DSi, you should really have Flipnote Studio, the brilliant (and free) flip-book animation program that lets you doodle away, add sound and then share your creation with the world.

Whilst the efforts among Nintendo Life staff are far too crude to show to the public, master animators Aardman Animation of Wallace and Gromit fame put together a series of super-impressive short animations, the last one of which is now available to view.

Named The Weatherman, it's still as cutesy, funny and downright oddball as the previous entries in the series, though in our view it's not quite up there with The Sandwich Twins. You can check out the final animation without leaving this very page, and then head over to Flipnote Hatena's dedicated Aardman Animations portal to catch up on any short flicks you may have missed.

I am very disappointed and expected so much more from the whole animations...

For me several animations from amateurs are a lot better in view of humor and quality.

Aww.....

Even though some of them weren't as funny to you guys, they were enjoyable to watch.

Well, I extend a hand or gratitude to them for helping to end the age of Flipnote petitions.
I hope another animation studio follows suit.

these are great. Very nicely done and classically drawn. Seems like some on here don't know how to appreciate classic, short form animation. This is a welcome breath of creative modesty from some of the best animators out there.

It's great, but I have to agree. :)

Wow... why can't I make anything like this no matter how hard I try? Lack of patience, I suppose... _
