New Session: RINGTONE DEATHMATCH is a 13 part series where nine animated contestants perform their Ringtones and compete against each other. Psycho Teddy, Hilda the Witch and The Hobo Monster are contenders in a new creation from Sydney’s Sixty40 that combines the greatest elements of reality TV into one roller coaster of doom. Be prepared for the thrill of killing off contestants you hate. It will change forever what you expect from reality TV. "Finally, we’d be able to make a show that would simultaneously be fun to make and also allow people to exact violent revenge on annoying contestants" says Matt Taylor, Animation Director. Sixty40 combines their love of the weird and wonderful with their hatred of mediocre television "We just want to give something back to the community" says Mark Simpson, Design Director.
