Israeli startup AniBoom has raised $4.5 million for its emerging online animation community, reports NewTeeVee. The round was led by Israeli VC firm Evergreen ($610 million under management).
AniBoom is an online video aggregator for animated films, with online tools (such as a Shapeshifter
) that empower users to create animation of different genres, techniques and means.
To provide the right incentive, AniBoom created a revenue sharing model based on popularity and prize-awarding contests to inspire participation. According to its FAQ
, AniBoom is working on “Animated Idol”, an online competition for animators.
AniBoom is led by CEO, Uri Shinar, a seasoned Israeli TV executive.
