Mummu the Creator- Tommy and Markus Vad Flaaten

Mummu the Creator- Tommy and Markus Vad Flaaten

Mummu had the pleasure of welcoming animation super-duo Tommy and Markus Vad Flaaten (aka TwinTrash) to our studio for a two-week internship, before they returned to their final year at Kingston University.

Over the two weeks Tommy and Markus got involved with various projects going through the studio and also created this fantastic Mummu sting for us, complete with their own sound design!

Taking inspiration from Mummu’s Babylonian roots, the twins created a God-like character with a hands-on approach to craft and an eye for perfection!

Top Tips for creating a showreel!

Creative Bloq recently asked Mummu and a few familiar faces in animation for some top tips for creating a showreel!  Check out the full article here:

A Modern Day Babylonian God

Last week we introduced you to Johan, our Hyper Island Intern.  Before arriving in London we asked Johan to visualise Mummu; the Babylonian God of Craftsmanship and technical skill, then bring the character to life in the form of a GIF.  After exploring a variety of characters Johan came up with a modern day Mummu, chilling outside our very own studio on Hoxton Street!

Kingston Visit

Kingston University came to visit our studio and quiz us about the world of animation!  Here's a snap of Sam and Karl sharing the story of Mummu!

Marvellous Movember Mogifs

Fancy getting hairy with Mummu?

Mummu are donning their Mo’s this Movember and we thought it would be a great chance to get creative and collaborate with all our Mo brothers and sisters to help raise money and awareness for Prostate and Testicular Cancer.
So we created MoGifs a page for animated characters who could grow their Mo’s too. We have the support of Movember who love the idea and we hoped that you might like to get involved.

London’s Hero 2013

London’s Hero 2013

Mummu were fortunate to be asked to particpate in this Exquisite Corpse animation collaboration with Cut&Paste along with 5 of the best animation studios in London. Each team had to create 10 seconds and were given approximately 5 hours for the production (there may have been a bit of before and after preperation!), the last 30 frames of each animation were passed on the next studio to create seamless transitions. Credits - Blackmeal (baby), Mummu (child), Fred&Eric (teen), Animade (young adult), Territory (midlife) and Golden Wolf (senior).
