Pocket.watch, the leading kids and family studio creating global franchises for Generation Alpha, and Sunlight Entertainment, the studio behind Ryan’s World, have launched the first animated character on Cameo Kids based on a real-life kid with Red Titan, the massively popular animated superhero alter ego of Ryan from Ryan’s World. Red Titan and his best friend Combo Panda are available on Cameo Kids for parents and loved ones to book personalized Cameo video messages for kid fans, powered by AI voice and animation technology.
The popular Ryan’s World characters will deliver personalized Cameo videos in their own voices in a way never before possible, enabling Ryan to connect with his fans in a personalized way that is fun, safe and scalable. The launch of Ryan’s World paves the way for pocket.watch to bring many more kid-creators to Cameo Kids through the power of AI-driven animation. This is yet another way that pocket.watch is extending kids and family creator franchises to kids everywhere.
Launched in December 2022, Cameo Kids is a new destination where parents and loved ones can book personalized Cameo videos from kids’ favorite family entertainment stars. It’s an extension of the popular Cameo platform, long-known for creating authentic fan experiences across every pop culture vertical. The new pocket.watch characters are the first on the platform to be powered by Cameo’s proprietary AI animation technology. They are also the first to join from a YouTube property based on a real-life kid and will continue to bring the fandom of digital-first stars to the growing Cameo Kids platform.
“We’re proud to welcome the popular characters from Ryan’s World to Cameo Kids as we expand the number of child-friendly stars we have available for families to enlist for life’s important moments,” said Steven Galanis, Cameo Co-Founder and CEO. “As we continue to grow our offering, it’s important to partner with the most sought after franchises that kids know and love, and pocket.watch, which is pioneering new territory in the kids and family category, helps us reach an incredible new audience and achieve that goal.”
Personalized Cameo videos from Red Titan and Combo Panda can be booked on Cameo Kids to bring joy around birthday celebrations, help kids overcome everyday hurdles like going to school, provide encouragement or guidance around homework, help ease bedtime routines, and deliver sweet get-well messages. New occasions and characters are expected to launch over the coming months.
“Through Cameo Kids, parents can enlist the beloved Ryan’s World animated characters to magically speak directly to kids, helping them celebrate the special moments in their lives,” said Chris M. Williams, Founder and CEO, pocket.watch. “Pocket.watch is committed to extending our creator franchises everywhere that kids are, and this opportunity lets us provide personalization at scale to engage fans in a meaningful way while prioritizing the health and safety of our kid-creators.”
Joining Cameo Kids allows pocket.watch to provide its creators an opportunity to reach their millions of fans in a personalized way. By leveraging artificial intelligence, the animated characters are able to connect directly with their kid fans while both the talent and the kid audiences stay safe. Red Titan is voiced by Ryan Kaji, the 11-year-old star of Ryan’s World, and the technology innovation to use his real voice was achieved in partnership with AI leader, Veritone.
