The technology behind unforgettable characters

Ever since 3D animated characters first appeared on the glowing CRT screens of labs and universities more than four decades ago, artists and engineers have competed to produce increasingly life-like CG creations. Now with the help of Ziva, these creators can effectively blur the boundary between the virtual and physical worlds.

Founded in early 2015 by Academy Award-winner James Jacobs and USC Professor/TR35-winner Dr. Jernej Barbic, Ziva Dynamics is changing the way virtual characters are brought to life. Ziva character technologies harness the leading methodologies from engineering and computer science to rapidly produce the most accurate and scalable character results. Ziva fundamentally changes the character creation process, while providing greater control, speed, and capabilities to artists of all levels.

Emerging artists, award-winning studios, and global brands are all leveraging Ziva’s technology to make world-class characters for movies, TV, retail experiences, and interactive environments.
