Party! “With just a webcam, a mic, and Adobe Character Animator you can animate using face-capture technology. With the addition of animated triggers you can make characters do whatever you can imagine,” says Scott Evans from the UK Design duo, Digital Puppets.
Ted the bear and Ricky the raccoon are party animals! Ted likes to rock out with his guitar and drum sticks. Ricky loves to go to Ted’s shows or any party. Ricky has various party hats and gifts. They both come with triggers, replays, and helpful controls. With your creativity and their expressive mouth shapes they can look surprised, happy, sad, mad, unimpressed, and more! They also have hand gestures like thumbs up and down, point, and wave. Download both puppets.
Created by Digital Puppets, Scott and Antony Evans provide their services to individuals, businesses, and other studios all over the world. “Using digital puppet technology, you can produce animated promotional content faster than traditional animation, keeping the costs lower without loss of quality,” Scott says.
Build, grow, and interact with your audience today! “With digital puppets, it is now possible to use a character to talk directly to your customers. You can do this with Facebook Live, Twitter, or YouTube. Create a live talk show, animate a podcast, create a character for your gaming channel on platforms such as Twitch and Mixer. It’s a great way to engage with your audience and stand out from the crowd!” Antony says.
