Make DIY animated movies easily with this tool by Stan Lee.

Plotagon is a movie-making tool that creates an animated movie from the screenplay your write. This platform lets any amateur writer test the waters of creativity, freeing their inner Jane Austen or Stephen King. If you want to see the story you created in real-time, Plotagon will take your words, turn it into code, and tell the story just the way your wrote it. Scenes will follow the sequence you envisioned them. You can also expect your movie to illustrate the dynamic details you imagined as well – dialogue, animation, the whole nine yards.

Created by comic book legend Stan Lee, Plotagon features five characters and six environments – avid moviemakers can also purchase additional characters from the software’s built-in store. The computer-generated characters can be a bit domineering, considering their intense facial expressions and awkward body movements, nonetheless, this is a great example that demonstrates just how far 3-D model technology has developed.

Lee’s team is in the process of creating new additions to the Pl0tagon store, which include superhero characters and a Pride & Prejudice plugin. The KTH Royal Institute of Technology has also signed on board to help Plotagon’s team of 24 create more believable animations.

This software cuts out the production middleman, and lets you produce movies the way you want. As the software develops, you can expect to create 3-D avatars of yourself and position yourself into the storyline.
