iClone Avatar Builder - Create Actors Online

Want to play mad scientist and build your own actors?  We've just launched a DIY actor creator powered by our partnership with Evolver.  Now you can generate actors that are ready for iClone using an intelligent avatar builder that allows you to select two different types of styles and morph the result to sculpt perfect hybrid actors with human, alien, monster or animal details. When you've built the perfect actor for your film you can then spend your iClone BackStage points to download the character.

Movie Monday: Voyages of the Sojourner

Gabe's Anima Technica premieres this 3 part steampunk series with a wide range of Machinima actors.  You'll hear many voices from around the community and even my best southern US/german scientist accent in part 2.  Gabe's movies are always full of rich set design and custom clothing for the actors.  It takes time to work in that detail, but Gabe is a great example of why it's all worth the time.

 

Recently Gabe shared some of comments about his filmmaking journey with iClone:

Gabe Abchanzar, Anima Technica

By day I am a marketing analyst for a microprocessor company and after work, i turn into Anima Technica, a machinima movie maker, digital artist and character designer. When i am not making machinima, i am often at various internet radio shows commenting on the use of iClone for machinima, as well as driving my daughter to her soccer games. An avid fan of sci-fi, fantasy and adventure stories, I had always wanted to try my hand at writing stories in these genres but never got around to it.
When i first ran into iClone it just opened my eyes to the possibility that here at last is a easy enough tool to not only tell my stories, but also allow me to visualize pictures i've had in my head.

With the rise of user created content and machinima - i coined a term to describe my activity as MyCinema - movies created by me, for me, that hopefully others can enjoy as well. My current project is called The Voyages of the Sojourner which is a sci-fi Steampunked themed story. I use iClone exclusively for generating most if not all of the shots in this as well as my older movies. iClone produces amazing visual quality for a machinima creation tool. It offers such a range of flexibility that movie genres is only limited by your imagination.
