My name is Benjamin Sokomba Dazhi. I am from Nigeria. I have been doing animations since 2014, and I am always developing myself in it.
I am an animator and I mostly use iClone as my main animation software tool. I am very passionate about animation and I am creating a fully animated movie using iClone. In my country Nigeria, there are very few animation studios but we are beginning to grow in numbers. For now I am working alone as an indie animator, but thanks to Reallusion tools I am slowly building my team and making my animation studios dream come true!
442oons is a highly successful YouTube channel with over a million subscribers, that creates weekly-animated football parodies with songs and pictures.
Dean Stobbart, originally a teacher from Norton, County Durham, had in the past been a part-time voice actor and also did some animation for his lessons.
From the beginning, Dean saw a gap in the market that “no one had really done football cartoons before”, so he made his first video – a cartoon parody of Luis Suárez and Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger in a scene from The Silence of the Lambs.

Hi my name is Orly Rodriguez. I am 43 years old and I started making video games only four months ago. I always dreamed of becoming a professional game developer, but I never imagined it would have happened so fast.
It all started for me when I decided to take a Virtual Reality Bootcamp at Game Art Institute. I began spending day and night doing everything I could to learn Unity, Blender and anything else I could get my hands on.
One day I was watching Twin Peaks: The Return, and I had this crazy thought… I should make The Black Lodge from the show in VR. A few days later I was standing in that very room. It was absolutely surreal. Now, I have a small development team called Nothing Like You Productions. We love what we do and we are passionate about creating virtual reality experiences at an unprecedented level of immersion.
Thanks to tools like iClone and Character Creator we have been able to achieve things that normally would have been impossible for us.
Jedediah “HakJak” Steen is a solo game developer, striving to live a life-long dream of making games for a living. He started HakJak Productions part-time in 2015, while finishing up college courses, working a full-time job and raising a family.
When his first project, Guts and Glory, went viral on YouTube, he took a leap of faith to work on the project full-time. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, signing with publisher TinyBuild, and many updates later, the game recently launched on Steam’s Early Access platform to let the community help shape the future of the project.
When he’s not writing code, creating art, or consuming too much coffee, he can be found spending time with his family of five, spoiling his dogs or, of course, playing video games.
“Reallusion is helping to level the playing field between AAA game studios and indie game developers. Character Creator gave me far more freedom and power to create what I wanted than any other character creation software I have used. ” – Jed Steen / HakJak Studios
