Team & Partners
The AMGI Studios and My Pet Hooligan team are a talented and devoted group of individuals, spanning the landscapes of gaming, animation, business development, and Web3.
AMGI’s objective is to combine proprietary technology with high quality, character driven animation to develop a new path between Hollywood and the Web3 space.
On the forefront of real-time animation, AMGI is uniquely positioned as innovators in the space, with a pipeline of original content and the ability to bring traditional animation into the future.
With the support of high caliber creative talent from renowned studios such as Pixar, Disney, ILM, and Pixomondo, AMGI Studios delivers a quality of work that is unmatched in the industry.
Each individual brings something unique to the table, and we are well aware that the success of this project is the sum total of a massive group effort. Every single member of the MPH community is also considered a part of our wider team, and have a role to play in this our collective journey.
AMGI Studios (www.amgistudios.com) is reshaping the animation landscape of entertainment, game content and interactive AR/VR environments by combining our creative team with cutting edge technology initiatives. Our current Studio focus is on animated movies, NFT 3D character designs and building a massively multiplayer online role-playing game that is interoperable with our minted NFT characters. We plan to secure partnerships with brands and projects to bring their content and characters into the game.
AMGI Studios is in development on a an animated feature film, has successfully minted 8,888 My Pet Hooligan NFTs in December 2021, and is currently building a complimentary Web3 interactive/immersive experience, The Rabbit Hole - with creative design input from many of our 100,000 strong community members across various social media platforms.
Longer-term, the studio will build out a unique metaverse, INTERLOOP, a decentralized set of interoperable “Autuverses” (Our INTERLOOP white paper will be published in the coming months.)
Our Studio recognizes that game-play and digital experiences are fundamental to all aspects of human interaction and their influence has intensified. Communication technologies are currently aggregating billions of game-players through the conveyance and the adaptation of digital content. We are committed to a Web3 focus in our design philosophy. Positioned at the intersection of physical and digital worlds. Our design will focus on creating “games within a game” stoking an element of chaos in the game's strategic dynamics while building fun and intrigue into the underlying game mechanics. “The Rabbit Hole” is our initial multi-player game.
The Rabbit Hole is more than a game: it is an immersive experience that brings together Web3 technology, gaming and proprietary tools developed by the studio to enhance the physical to digital experience. The Rabbit Hole is the first immersive social metaverse platform for connecting as much as it is for playing popular games.
