For brands it is a huge advantage to be able to literally create an ambassador in their image and to be able to define his personality, his communications and his interactions with the audience, according to their strategy. Not to mention a total availability and an unlimited ability to travel. The service is divided into two main phases: the design and CGI creation of the character and then the production of content. Production and media placement become the two main costs of a campaign while rights and fees no longer exist.

For Stéphane Dalbec, co-founder of Big Company, the creation of virtual influencers is only the first step: “We hope to be able to offer virtual brand influencers fed by artificial intelligence to maintain conversations and create engagement with the communities of the brands they are associated with in writing or with synthetic voices. The objective is to remain relevant and consistent with the interests and social codes of the members of the targeted communities. A task that normal humans sometimes struggle to do.

Based in Lyon, Paris and Montreal, our production companies revolve around 4 areas of expertise: 2D/3D Animation, Motion, Video & Post-production and Interactive & Immersive.
