Tintoy's hip-hop ghostbusting cartoon Wins 1st Prize!

12 Apr 2009 - Tintoy Chuo & Actiontintoy Studio's quirky creative east-meets-west cartoon entry "Ghoul Smashing Quarter or GSQ" took the top prize (animation category) at the MSC Malaysia IP Creators Challenge 2008 final judging event at Palace of the Golden Horses, Sri Kembangan, K. L. today carried Live on AstroRia.

The event was the culmination of an intense 8 months of creative development work while also being made subjects of a new realityTV programme by Astro.
The creative pitch involved 5 different finalist teams hoping to create the next big hit animated series. Personally, I can't wait to watch the RealityTV show.

Congrats to all the winners and good luck with the follow-up negotiations for a bite of that RM850k bank of grant money! To infinity & beyond!

Next, the stakes are raised for the MSC Malaysia IP Creators Challenge 2009 which offers grants totalling RM1m.

Closing date: 02 July 2009.


So - can you do animation? write/illustrate a digital interactive comics? have ideas for a computer casual game? or mobile phone game apps? Get cracking then!
