Welcome to the first 3D Story Challenge, organised by FIGURAMA – Interactive platform for stories & experiences in 3D/AR/VR. 

  • We’re building this platform to help 3D / VR artists monetise their 3D scenes, by turning them into a story using our toolkit and publishing for all major devices.
  • We invite Artists, who strive to tell stories using 3D models and 3D scenes, whether using traditional modeling packages or the new VR painting & modeling tools, to join this challenge.
  • With the help of our team, community and FAT (our toolkit for Unity), you’ll be able to build your 3D story and publish it for experiencing through our app.

Winners will get Cash Prizes & an Exclusive Area on the app for Monetising their 3D stories!

This is an example of a simple 3D story made out of 6 static 3D scenes. The video also shows how people will experience your 3D story.

3D Story Spotlight #1

In this challenge, you will create one (1) 3D story consisting of a minimum of either: 

  • six (6) static 3D scenes
  • three (3) stop-motion animated 3D scenes (with a minimum of 5 keyframes per scene)
  • one (1) fully-animated 3D scene.

     (You can pick your own technique)

We will publish the 3D story and it will be presented as a product on FIGURAMA app. Through the app, everyone will be able to play and experience your story in first person view.

You can create 3D scenes for your story using any technique and software you prefer. The only technical requirement is, that the scenes need to be imported to Unity game engine and exported using our plugin (FAT).

To join this challenge, join the FIGURAMA Community and create your own WIP thread / topic for the 3D Story you’ll be making under the “3D STORY CHALLENGE #1” forum. In the first post to this topic, please introduce your 3D story (idea / theme / plot) and what technique you are planning to use to create it. You need to do this before the registration deadline.
