“My Very Own Adventure!”, a patent-pending system which allows children to be the star of their own cartoons, is a kiosk-based, turnkey operation created for Family Entertainment Centers and Party Rental companies. Each child chooses the “Adventure” in which they’d like to star.
They are then filmed in front of a green screen performing a series of actions based on that Adventure’s story line. After filming, the action footage is woven into the cartoon, a keepsake DVD is created, and “Presto!” the child is the star of their own cartoon. The entire process is completed within 8 minutes. There are currently 7 different Adventures to choose from, with new ones being released quarterly.
“My Very Own Adventure!” is a product of Cybergraphix, Inc., an interactive media company based in Nova, Ohio. The system was unveiled at last year’s Fun Expo in Las Vegas. Since that time, the system’s proprietary software, GreenKey, was completed, and “My Very Own Adventure!” has debuted in test markets throughout the country.
“These past 9 months have been all about getting MVOA out there, gauging response from both operators and customers”, says Rob Robertson, the creator of “My Very Own Adventure!”. “We’ve taken that input and made real-world adjustments to the system which will make it both more appealing to the market as a whole and more lucrative for our partners”.
Two versions of the system are available: a castle-themed kiosk for Family Entertainment Centers, and a Mobile System for Party Rental Companies. Shipping, set up, training, and P.R. are included with purchase, as well as ongoing technical support, all new Adventures, and software updates.
Each Adventure features original characters and voiceovers. The storylines range from navigating a Haunted Manor to exploring space to touring the countryside from the top of a friendly dragon. Custom Adventures featuring mascots are also available.
The Adventures are geared toward children from 2 -15; however, many adults have enjoyed the experience of creating their “Very Own Adventures!”
The “My Very Own Adventure!” system will be demonstrated at Booth # 815 at Fun Expo 2008 from September 10 – 12 in Las Vegas.
