… for your dining pleasure.  (And no, none of them involve Lego bricks or Duplo blocks or any other confusingly trademarked plaything.)

Some folks have produced their own audio tracks to go along with their animations.  If they work (and if they didn't use any music or sound effects that belong to someone else), we'll try to use what they made.  For the others, we've got a stock music tag that we'll use.  Either way, it's a lot of fun.

This one is cute… with a 3D jelly…

Another nice one rendered in 3D, with a nice soundtrack to boot.

This one is interesting…

Apparently jellyfish go all staticky when hit in the head with an anchor.  (Come to think of it, so do I.)  Maybe too violent for the kiddos?

This next one involves a CGI jelly, tracked into video footage of the animators kitchen.  It's a fun effect.

And finally, something a bit more "high-brow."  This animator executed the logo in charcoal, a fairly time-consuming old-school technique.  Check it out.

Interesting, huh?  I've asked the animator if he could make a short film about how he did this piece of animation, which I think kids might find interesting.  ("You mean you didn't use a computer?  You rubbed charcoal all over a piece of paper?!?"  "Yes, children – that's how Abraham Lincoln had to produce his animated films.")
More to come – and, hopefully, more news about a launch date for JellyTelly…
