June 1, 2012: Flipnote Hatena Weekly News


Hello, this is Aaron in Kyoto, Japan with the latest news about Flipnote Hatena.

The "Puzzle" themed Flipnotes from last week were a lot of fun to watch and we would like to thank everyone who took part. This week we have a new food-related topic that we hope will inspire you to make some new animations.

Now that June is here it is getting hotter in many parts of the world. Why not sit down in a nice shady place and make some Flipnotes about the weekly topic?

Thanks for checking out the news blog, from all of us at Hatena!

This week's topic: 'Cheese'

This week we would like you to create animations about cheese. Make animations about how cheese is made, create stories about mice and cheese, take photos of your favorite types of cheese, or make an original song about cheese with animation to match it. You might even want to try to explain the mystery how holes get into some types of cheese, why the the Moon is made of green cheese, or about stinky or sticky cheese! If you are a cheese lover, or even if you don't like cheese please have fun making Flipnotes about this cheesy topic. See where your creativity takes you!

Please submit your weekly topic Flipnotes by midnight on June 7, 2012 (Thursday) US Pacific Time, and we will present some of our favorites on June 8, 2012 (Friday).
