Aquifer is bringing the world’s first-ever 3D animated celebrity on Cameo, True from hit Netflix series True and the Rainbow Kingdom.

Have you ever wanted to put some star power into the special messages that you send your family or friends? Cameo is the marketplace that makes it possible. People can select from a wide range of celebrities including actors, musicians, athletes and other personalities to record personalized video messages. Now, Cameo is adding a new kind of personality to its roster - 3D animated True!

For everyday celebrations or special events like birthdays, graduations, and holidays, parents and family members can now request personalized videos from True for their little one.

Aquifer's cutting edge instant animation technology is breaking ground in the world of personalized celebrity videos. The popular service introduces the inspiring character True from the hit Netflix children’s show True and the Rainbow Kingdom, produced by Guru Studio, responsible for bringing to life the beloved PAW Patrol characters and other favorites including Ever After High and Justin Time.

“We are thrilled to partner with Guru to premiere the first 3D animated character on Cameo,” said Chen Zhang, CEO of Aquifer. “True’s greetings are so unique and special because they are really more like mini, personalized episodes made for each request. We think True’s fans will be delighted.”

True is breaking barriers in more ways than one: not only is she a strong female figure for children to look up to, but she’s also Cameo’s first-ever 3D animated talent on the platform. This new direction on Cameo is made possible by the 3D animation technology behind Aquifer’s video platform that allows creators and teams of any experience level to create cinematic animations.

How Aquifer’s Technology Works

Aquifer’s instant  3D animation platform is easy enough for anyone to use. From just a voice performance or video recording, the technology generates a cinematic 3D scene with  face and body animations, cinematography, and backgrounds. 

For each of True’s personalized videos, a performer receives the request and captures their voice and facial expressions on Aquifer’s mobile or desktop app.  Then Aquifer’s animation technology interprets the audio or visual data into over 50 different movements in the character’s face, auto-generates body movements that match, and selects the perfect shot of True. From there the user can add to or edit the scene, and then export the scene into a high-res videos with the tap of a button. The final mini 3D movie is rendered in the cloud in minutes and ready to share with True’s fans.

Aquifer was born from a passion for animated movies, and its magic is made by leveraging the latest in real-time rendering technology and machine learning. This technology is shaping the communication of forward-thinking creators and brands. We believe True will set a precedent for future characters to come to life on Cameo and other social video platforms. 

What makes True so special?

True is the protagonist of the hit Netflix series True and the Rainbow Kingdom. True bravely keeps the citizens of Rainbow Kingdom safe through her unique ability to receive The Wishes from the Wishing Tree. These wishes grant True magical powers that she uses to save the day. 

Heartwarming and supportive messages are a significant part of what makes True such an admirable character for so many children. She encourages compassion among children through her boundlessly kind and empathetic spirit. 

The momentous times in your child’s life are exciting, but can also be stressful. Change means growth, but it also means new challenges. With True’s help, parents can help remind their children to “take a deep breath.”

“Leveraging Aquifer’s cutting-edge technology, we're excited to be leading the way enabling young fans and their families to create an even deeper, and more personal relationship with the characters they love.” - Daniel Rattner, VP of Marketing at Guru Studio.

The Future of Animated Character Content

The introduction of True onto Cameo demonstrates the exciting possibilities for how we can communicate with family and friends. True is just the beginning. We aspire to bring all your favorite animated characters to life on platforms like Cameo, TikTok, Instagram, and more. 

“We all love to see our favorite characters in streaming shows and movies, but audiences are engaged with social media and video on a constant basis. There is a huge appetite for animated characters to tell their stories at the speed of social, and some of the world’s most beloved characters need more ways to reach their audience. We built Aquifer to meet this need and enable these characters to tell more stories.” says Matt Udvari, CTO of Aquifer.

Aquifer isn’t just limited to kids and family entertainment. Aquifer brings characters to life for all content purposes. Learning and development teams use Aquifer to create fun, snackable videos that engage their employees. Social media teams use Aquifer to create consistently entertaining content for their channels. You can even start a Youtube channel using your brand’s IP with Aquifer. 

Aquifer is playing a major role in bringing these possibilities to life. You can explore these possibilities yourself on Aquifer’s all-in-one platform whether you’re on mobile or desktop, no experience necessary.
