See the new character creator from Plotagon, leaders of the fusion between user-generated creativity, animation & social media!

(Stockholm, Sweden) March XX, 2014 – Executives from Plotagon, a user-friendly creative app that allows anyone to tell stories as 3D animated videos, will be at SXSW at booth #1147 from March 11-19 to unveil their exciting new character creator. The free, in-app feature lets users create themselves, their friends, or notable and famous people. Users can immediately insert the characters into their videos. Users—who can upload the Plotagon videos to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and other social media platforms—also can animate themselves in messages they send.

“The new Plotagon character creator is an exciting innovation that takes creativity and self-expression to new heights,” notes Philip Edner, co-founder and CEO of Plotagon. “Imagine animating yourself and your favorite celebrities in a video that you create with absolute ease. We’re giving complete creative control to users in ways they’ve always wanted.”

SXSW attendees not only will get a sneak peek at Plotagon’s innovative character creator, but also can learn about the company’s unique technology platform. Plotagon’s app, which was released in July 2014 and is available on Mac and PC, uses special phonemes and realistic lip-syncing for excellent text-to-speech capabilities. The app also employs an animation engine built from the industry standard Unity game engine.

On-hand at Plotagon’s SXSW booth will be Karin Wahlstrom, CMO; Michelle Plett, Social Media and Communications Manager; and Daniel Engstrom, Digital Marketing Manager. CEO Philip Edner will be available via Skype.
