Summary

Thank you for your interest in our company, FIGURAMA, and the 3D Comics Platform. It is our mission to create the best way for people to experience all interactive 3D stories. For that reason, we’re building an app and a library of content, that we believe has the potential of becoming the most accessible interactive content of the future 3D / AR / VR platforms. 3D comics consist of 3D scenes and interactive text, so we’re working with both 3D artists and writers to build & publish stories.

But even though we’re taking care of the production of software and content, we still need and appreciate your help, to make this mission a reality. We’re providing all the resources assembled in this Media Kit, to help all of us gather support for our passion to bring Comics from paper into their true digital future in 3D. Let’s get started!

FIGURAMA, the 3D comics platform, is the best way for people to experience 3D comics and stories. In 3D comics readers don’t view 2D images, but explore whole 3D environments and choose their own path. By making it easy to create and view these stories, the company believes it’s building the most accessible interactive content library of the future 3D / AR / VR platforms.

The problem with digital stories has always been the need to build custom software. But the content of 3D comics is made up only of 3D scenes and interactive text. FIGURAMA already took care of the app, and so it built the tech that lets artists and writers create their own interactive 3D stories. By making it easy to create and view 3D comics, and empowering many people to tell stories in a new way, the company believes it’s building the most accessible interactive content library of the future 3D / AR / VR platforms.

FIGURAMA was founded in 2015 as a 3D scanning studio, to assist with production of digital characters for video games and interactive apps. These were difficult to build as a lot of custom code needed to be developed. One of the founders, Andrej Grek, was experimenting with new ways to use the 3D scanned characters, only to discover with his team a unique way to tell stories in 3D. A few months of work later they had a prototype of a new storytelling product. In 2017, the 3D Comics Platform was born. Andrej’s team is now creating a universal app called FIGURAMA, that will be the primary way to experience 3D comics and stories all in one place.

In a traditional comic, a reader views a 2D page, but in a 3D comic you explore a whole 3D environment to understand the story. The problem with such digital stories has always been that they needed custom software to be built. But 3D Comics content is made up of 3D scenes and interactive text. FIGURAMA already took care of the app, and so it built the tech that lets artists and writers create their own interactive 3D stories. By making it easy to create and view 3D comics, and empowering many people to tell stories in a new way, FIGURAMA wants to take full advantage of modern digital devices and form the most accessible interactive content library of the future 3D / AR / VR platforms.

FIGURAMA was founded in 2015 - first as a 3D scanning studio. The studio was built, to assist with production of digital characters for video games, animation and interactive apps. One of the founders, Andrej Grek, was working on these at the time. It’s difficult to build these, because of a lot of custom code has to be developed. This’s been limiting the ability to tell all the stories that Andrej had on paper. As he’s been experimenting and thinking of different ways of using the 3D scanned characters, he and his team discovered a unique way to tell stories in 3D. They set out on a journey to build the prototype, and after a few months of coding and 3D modeling, they had a working version of a new storytelling product. In 2017, the 3D Comics Platform was born.

Andrej’s team is creating a universal app called FIGURAMA, which lets you access digital 3D comics and stories all in one place. In a 3D comic, unlike in a traditional comic, a reader doesn’t view a 2D page, but explores a whole 3D environment to understand the story. The FIGURAMA team realized, that the technology to create stories in 3D, just as easily as on paper was missing. A 2D illustrator needs to just pick a pen and after a few strokes, another person can view the sketch and appreciate the art instantly. To build digital story products such as games, costly software has to be built. FIGURAMA app is the new technology, that removes the need to build software to create interactive 3D stories. FIGURAMA is the paper for 3D stories.

3D comics content is made up of 3D scenes and interactive text, and can be developed entirely by artists and writers. FIGURAMA publishes this content and makes sure viewers have the best possible experience browsing it. They believe, that by making it easy to create and view 3D comics, they’re empowering many people to tell stories in a new way. Everyone is using digital devices, but these are capable of so much more, than just copy the functionality of paper. Interactive 3D stories on FIGURAMA take full advantage of modern digital devices and can form the most accessible interactive content library for the growing 3D, AR and VR platforms.

Product

 

The future of digital comics is 3D

FIGURAMA is a 3D comics platform, your universal way to access all interactive 3D stories. In a 3D comic, unlike in a traditional comic, you don’t just read a 2D page, but explore a whole 3D environment to understand the story. The experience works like a video game, but focuses on the story and interactivity, rather than providing a challenge.

To let you explore as many 3D comics as possible, FIGURAMA takes away the effort of creating and exploring interactive 3D stories. The content is made up of 3D scenes and interactive text, and can be built entirely just by artists and writers. Once they get published on the FIGURAMA app, you can access and immerse yourself in all the stories in one place.

By giving you full control of your view & the way stories progress, 3D comics empower you to explore, learn and find out more. Even about stories you already knew from a single camera angle. The initial content is in production, ranging from adaptations of educational books and children stories, all the way up to action comics heavy on visual effects.

FIGURAMA app takes full advantage of modern digital devices and is shaping up to become the most accessible interactive content library of the future 3D / AR / VR platforms.

Andrej Grek

CEO

Started with game development in 2010, and fascinated by the unbounded freedom, he stopped pursuing architectural design education. But 3D art always stayed his passion, and soon after the switch in career, he’s founded his first interactive company “boARd 3D”. The company was funded and went on to develop a highly innovative AR game. During this time, in 2013, Andrej combined forces with his father Lubos, to design and build a 3D scanning and motion capture studio.

They managed to build it by 2015, and started utilizing it in development of their next interactive experiences. With this end of production being covered, the software aspect was still a bottleneck. So in 2016, they began thinking of a way to solve this problem, not just for themselves, but for all 3D artists. Together they came up with a way to tell interactive stories in 3D, without having to develop custom software. This is when FIGURAMA, the 3D comics & storytelling platform was born.

Today, Andrej is leading the team at FIGURAMA, to bring you the best possible interactive 3D story experiences on future 3D/AR/VR platforms.
