Aardman does DSi shorts

Wallace & Gromit house to make Flipnote movies

Wallace & Gromit house, Aardman is set to produce a series of films for the Nintendo DSi's Flipnote Studio.

Aardman's Tim Ruffle is to create the short and funny animations using just the DSi app and you'll be able to download the first one - called The Sandwich Twins - on the Flipnote Hatena website from September 16.


Each animation will feature "unusual and fun characters" created exclusively by Aardman, it says, and will be made available each week in the run up to Christmas.

Ruffle said: "I had a lot of fun making these. Flipnote is so simple to use that it's easy to make short, fun animations. 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!"
