Friday Fun: The Next Generation


If you're wondering what some of us here at Cadence do for a hobby (and I know you are!), here's an example.  We wonder what it would be like to be part of a chip design startup, and we act it out with puppets.  Of course!

We created this series entitled "The Next Generation", about a team designing their next generation chip.  The production quality is definitely low budget, but hopefully it is entertaining nonetheless.  See if you can identify the voices of some of your favorite AE's.

Here is the pilot show.  There is a youtube channel where further episodes will be posted, and there is already a backgrounder video on the characters. Enjoy!

Man! Good to know that no dollars were harmed in the making of this series! :)   I saw that there are more videos up already at: www.youtube.com/ZBBproductions   Good to see we can have a sense of humor in these tough economic times!   Thanks for a few laughs (along with the thinly veiled messages too!)....

Looks like Dante Semi has some challenges ahead of them.  I like the format.... bare-bones production quality, but good content. Sounds like it reflects real world problems.
Plus....the characters are funny looking!
