“We were pleasantly surprised by the awesome reception from the SXSW audience. We are really proud of the amazing feedback we are receiving from our new collaboration with Amber Rose. We’re excited to see all of the creative messages to come from Amber’s ‘Rosebuds,’” says Meinike. “We’re looking forward to the next character animations we have in store for ‘MUVA.’ We have several surprises on the horizon; today was just the beginning.”
