Virtual characters
We Make Digital DNA
The quest for cognizance

For the past 25 years we’ve been working to create compelling virtual surrogates that can step off the screen to become your personal digital assistant. They will be smart, articulate, interesting and have the capacity to respond in a meaningful way with the equivalent of original thought.

VR isn't really going anywhere until articulate CG characters take it there.
Character creation has come a long way since I made Marlon and Marilyn. What once took weeks and wheelbarrows full of money to accomplish, can now be done in an afternoon with relatively inexpensive gear.

Perhaps the more important component of modern virtual characters is their evolution into cognizance, as they increasingly become much more relevant inhabitants of the virtual worlds we're building.

As corny as this may sound, carbon based life forms are destined to wait out the flatlined Darwinian evolutionary process while our social evolution is rapidly surging toward vertical on our hockey-stick ride of technology. Quite simply, our biology is lagging behind our technology.
