Evertoon lets users turn stories into 3D animated movies. In two
minutes, you can make a movie of yourself chatting with Taylor Swift or
debating politics with Barack Obama.
The online video industry is growing explosively, but most user-generated
content still consists of a person talking straight into the camera.
We don't go to the movie theatre or watch television to see Brad Pitt
talk directly into the camera for two hours. We expect more: a story
between characters with dialogue. Evertoon puts you in the director’s
Evertoon lets users put photographs onto 3D avatars' faces, and record
dialogue. Voice filters and emojis-turned-into-animations bring further
excitement, allowing users to create movies they'll want to share on
Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. The process is so easy that one
user published a parody of Peyton Manning from the comfort of his
couch after watching the Superbowl -- no lights, backdrop, or actors
Evertoon has proven to be popular for making parodies of current events
and celebrities, and bringing movie / television show fan fiction to
life. Our vision is to democratize storytelling, so that anyone
can make story-based movies, regardless of their location, race, gender,
age, or appearance.
We raised seed funding of $1.7M from Greylock Discovery Fund, Arena VC,
Amino Capital, ChinaRock, and strategic angel investors including former
Reddit CEO Ellen Pao, Wealthfront VP Ali
Rosenthal, and Quora cofounder Charlie Cheever.
Niniane has loved avatars and storytelling since creating Google Lively
in 2006. She has wanted to build a moviemaking product since 2010, but
smartphones were fast enough to render movies. Our phones have now
advanced to the point that they can render a mini version of the same
movies that require thousands of servers for movie studios.
Niniane raised $1.7M in seed funding and met Chris, an engineer from
Oscar-winning Moonbot. Then Shyam joined Evertoon from being an
engineer on the Metal Gear Solid game franchise. Art director Eric came
from popular mobile game company GREE, and brought on Kaan, a Zynga
animator who once animated DOOM 3.
The team loves watching the quirky Evertoon movies made by users.
On two occasions, team members laughed so hard at a
Evertoon movie that they cried.
