Give a voice to animated cartoons on Anmish

Ox Animation, an animation studio, based in Jordan and Syria, founded in 2010 by Wasseym, Amer, and Nasser Abdulghani, has just launched a new interactive site, Anmish.

Anmish gives you a chance to unleash the actor and director in you, adding voice-overs to the creative caricatures they provide, while switching between the available still images.

The caricatures include Hilary Clinton, Hosni Mubarak, Barack Obama, Prince Charles, Nicolas Sarkozy, and Muammar Gaddafi, as well as an Anmish original called Garo.

To create your own animated video, select your caricature, after which you can choose the extent to which you want to use voice morphing. If we had one small request, it would be to be able to preview how each level of voice morphing sounds.

Once you start recording, you can use the keyboard shortcuts to opt for a close up, medium or long shot, switching between the three as you record.

You can also change the characters emotional state from happy to sad to angry.

Once you’re done with your recording you can either give it a title and save it, or you can reset and start all over again. Each animation can be up to 30 seconds long.

The service does have a few kinks to work out. Despite having the option to keep your video private, it still shows up in the public listings, so if you plan on testing the site, you should bear in mind that your videos will be viewable to anyone who clicks on them.

You can easily share the videos using Twitter and Facebook, and can also leave comments on videos, but have to be logged into your Facebook account in order to do so. There is currently no way to embed your videos on other sites.

Our favourite animation has to be the one of Gaddafi entitled You Ruined My Life.
