CREATE * TRANSFORM * SHARE

What if stories were alive?

What if they could adapt, learn, breed and evolve?

 

 

We’re creating a completely new technology that’s going to transform the way people consume and create animated movies. Powered by machine learning and crowd creativity, our platform allows every story to be evergreen.

We democratize creation, allowing anyone to influence the story and see the impact that changing dialogue, characters, actions, or even the whole story universe has on how the story unfolds.
