There also is a new, free Valentine puzzle game with a whole new set of tricky Valentine photos to puzzle through.
Yes, it’s Groundhog’s Day today and the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow which means six weeks more of winter. Little Pim also had a little debut when Wired’s Geek Dad shadowed Pim in a nice app review of Little Pim’s Word Bag (Okay, we stretched the Punxsutawney-Pim correlation a little).

Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg have been on ESPN Radio for 10 years now and as part of the celebration they are replaying a bunch of their best clips. One of their top moments was the Emmy win for the animated series Off-Mikes that Animax Entertainment produced. Here’s the clip from the show where Mike & Mike generously pat Animax on the back. Thanks guys and congrats on the anniversary!
Inc. Magazine just highlighted Animax in an article about Social Media employee policies. In general our policy is pretty liberal in that we’d much rather focus on being part of the conversation than on controlling the kinds of things employees or connected folks say in particular. Our policy organically developed as we started to use Facebook, Twitter and other social media for marketing for Animax, FunNugget.com, as well as on client projects. One caveat: since we’ve produced a lot of kids focused work there are definite differences in approach to conversations in order to ensure security and safety.
With superlatives like “excellent” and “innovative,” Animax Entertainment just won three Pixie Awards for a mix of our original animation productions and client work. Popzilla and Bob & Doug won Platinum level awards (the highest honor), and then Joint’s Don’t Jump won Gold. The awards represent the work of many animators and in particular many Flash animators working together.
(Sorry if the Pixie Award image) is NSFW but hopefully you’re okay reading this blog post.
This February NY Toy Fair and the Engage Expo are teaming up to run a conference about the next generation of play. Animax‘s Michael Bellavia is moderating a panel called Adding A Powerful Online Presence To An Existing Offline Brand with executives from Scholastic, Mattel and Hidden City Games.
