Muvimi is a pocket-sized animated movie studio targeted at Gen Z, millennials and beyond, which allows players to make their own cartoon avatars and use them to create exciting, customisable cartoon movies that are ready to share on social media.
Muvimi allows players to become the stars of their own show through the actor customisation tool. They can choose hairstyles, clothes, accessories – every detail down to the shape of the actor’s .
Users then animate their avatars in a range of ways – by programming their movements and expressions and letting them interact with props and each other. They can also give their characters a voice by recording speech directly into the app, using automated lip sync technology to simply and easily create a high-quality cartoon.
After recording the clips, the player can select and reorder them in the simple editing suite. Once they’re happy with their film, users can premiere their cartoon movie to the world by sharing directly to social media.
