We have been looking for investors to keep MovieBot alive for nearly a year, and despite our best efforts, we have been unsuccessful. We launched MovieBot Plus with the hopes that it could offset some of our costs, but the revenue is not significant enough to continue operations.
As much as we want to continue building this product for you, we are forced to acknowledge the reality that we are nearly out of money and will need to wind the company down. The app will remain operational for roughly two weeks, after which we will remove it from the app stores and shut down this Discord on Thursday, October 5, 2023. Because the AI services and text-to-speech systems cost money, they will also stop working after that time.

Although this is not the outcome we were hoping for, there’s still a lot to celebrate: we brought 3D animation tools to nearly 1 million young creators, we shipped 35 updates in less than two years, and we created an experience that consistently inspired laughter and joy in those lucky enough to play with MovieBot. Most of all, we are grateful to you, our community.
THANK YOU for showing up, sharing your videos, providing detailed feedback that has made MovieBot better, and for making us laugh every day. We appreciate each and every one of you.
The MovieBot Team
