I started making videos since 2002. It was around the time that independent filmmakers were realising that the internet was a good way to share their stories.

Over the years, I’ve seen some excellent films and wanted to try it for myself. Unfortunately, I didn’t know anyone who was willing to be in front of a camera, nor did I actually have a camera. So I turned to animation and I was able to enlist online friends who lived too far away to do anything live action but who were interested in voice acting. I also helped run the Machinima Expo for 8 years.

Vassago Studios was founded in 2014 by Roman Perezogin, who has been working independently with his own funds in this one-man studio, where he has utilized iClone and its Character Creator tool to meet deadlines and funding for the game.

In 2015 the production of the first Vassago Studios title “Darkness Anomaly” started with the creation of a playable demo which tapped into the CRYENGINE INDIE DEVELOPMENT FUND –  a grant program for the indie dev teams doing work with CRYENGINE.

The aim of the campaign was to test the atmosphere of CRYENGINE for a horror game. In 2016, preparations for the campaign began, bringing insights to whether there is interest in the game idea for Steam – Valve’s digital distribution platform. After only 3 days, Darkness Anomaly ranked 10th of all submitted projects.

“Creating beautiful, highly-detailed NPCs in hours, and letting them come alive in the CRYENGINE was never so easy before! We are very lucky to have found the iClone software for indie devs.” – Roman Perezogin

I was born a long time ago. A few decades later I graduated as a Film and Television director. After that I was spent my life waiting for a tool that would give me the luxury of avoiding work with living creatures, and let me become a one-man film making crew.

Then came a real-time animation software and my waiting days came to an end…

Realm Pictures is about fusion, about combining two concepts to give birth to a new stronger one.

Their goal is to combine the resourcefulness of Independent Film with the impeccably high production values of Hollywood cinema. To combine the mystical tradition of British storytelling with the newest in digital and solid state technologies. In doing so they hope to choose a new path of strength, integrity and excellence.

In their production, they have chosen to use the iClone 3D Animation software for pre-visualization prior to the actual shooting of the film, along with character motion capture for their scenes.

I am Pedro Alvera from La Peonza Digital, a digital video company fitted in Madrid, Spain.

During one of our most recent projects, we’ve done 15 video-guides pieces for visitors of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, which is one of the most visited fine-arts museum in Europe!

In our project, we used CrazyTalk Animator (CTA) for the whole process which included creating characters of the paintings to make them come alive. We also used animation templates with lip-syncing in both Spanish and English language.

Hi my name is Alvin Snerling, and I live in St. Louis MO. I have been using iClone for about a year and a few months now. I also use MotionBuilder and sometimes Blender to make animations effects

I refer to myself more as a Machinima artist than an animator, and I am working on my next project which currently I don’t have a name for, but it is going to be a tribute to Monty Oum who inspired me. Just be on the lookout for it when it drops!
