JibJab staff wears dresses for Halloween, in support of Sierra Leone education!

This Halloween, the JibJab staff are dressed in…Australian school dresses! Why, you ask? We’re participating in Do It In A Dress, an initiative that aims to provide girls in Sierra Leone with an education. Funds donated to the Do It In A Dress campaign go towards scholarships, improved classrooms and sanitation, and business training. Some […]

Happy Halloween!

The spookiest time of the year is upon us, which means it’s time to grab your buckets of candy, start work on the scariest costume imaginable, and prepare for an epic night of debauchery. JibJab is celebrating with not one, not two, but three brand new eCards, including a hair-raising rendition of “I Will Survive” […]

Happy Halloween from the JibJab Team!

We had a ton of fun dressing up in our Halloween costumes at the office yesterday! In the afternoon, we passed around candy & carmel apples, played spooky music and even held a costume contest. One of our artists, Eddie, won for his creative Wallace and Gromit getup. Did you dress up or did you […]

Behind the Scenes – The Time Warp – 3D Backgrounds

Over the years we’ve been able to improve our Starring You technology in a number of ways, including head rotation and secondary hair animation. Now we are able to add 3D environments to the list! While Jump Jive and Wail was the first time we incorporated 3D environments into a Starring You video, Time Warp […]

Behind the Scenes: The Time Warp – Meet the Actors!

After attending one of the midnight showings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show™ here in Los Angeles we knew that we had to make The Time Warp into an eCard this Halloween. We asked the actors of the show to come into our studio to film and they were thrilled. They even had their own hand made […]

Happy Halloween from the JibJab Team

Thanks to our fans, over 12 MILLION people saw the Monster Rap this month!  Wowee zowee! So from all of us, a big haunted thank you and a Happy Halloween!

Mashin and Rappin All Across the Nation

We’ve been waiting all month to share our list news stations and morning shows that have featured Monster Raps, Mashes and videos from our Halloween collection.  We didn’t expect to get to this point and have almost too many to list.  Instead of doing a rundown station by station, location by location on the blog, […]

The Mouth on that Monster

Frankenstein’s script called for the monster to convey some real emotion, which is a challenge when you don’t know what the expression of your characters (ie; your uploaded faces) will be. This lead us to our first experiments with animated Starring You mouths, allowing you to have a big toothy grin, show sadness, fear or […]

Frankenstein B&W Backgrounds

Our artists came up with sweeping landscapes, black and white rainbows, noirish corridors, evil labs and spooky nights to bring Frankenstein in a Minute to life. Have a better look at some of the scenery below and check out more in our Facebook album!

Terrorize Townsfolk Just to Keep’em in Check

If you frequent our site, you may recognize some faces animated into Frankenstein! Several folks from the JibJab team got to have their heads featured as angry villagers, including most of our summer intern crew that worked on the short so diligently. Meanwhile, we had Jeff take some awesome photos with the beard he was […]

That Poor Cat

The cat in Frankenstein really grew on us, in fact we loved him so much we found ways to cram the kitty in all over the place. Here’s a better look at the little furball in action.

The Good, Evil Doctor

For Frankenstein in a Minute, our designs were a bit stretchier and wackier than usual, as apparent in the evil Doctor’s long limbs, good for grabbing things off screen.

Frankenstein’s ReAnimatic

Take a peek at our animatic for Frankenstein, sans the texture and colors to come.  It will give you a whole new appreciation for the piece when we publish the insanely background art next week!
