Dodles has revolutionized the computer animation process! Built around simplicity, design speed and functionality, the illustration suite adds a fresh twist to the traditional brushes, shapes, fonts, and image editing found in many creative suites. dodles adds to illustration a powerful and innovative suite for animation. Central to this is Canimations: a breakthrough, pre-canned approach to instant animation with “intelligent objects” that have preset functionality. Just drag, drop and animate!
Collaboration & Marketplace Collaboration exponentiates beauty! The dodles marketplace allows creators to design their own projects using the work of other artists. Artists can promote, post and sell their work in the Marketplace by licensing original characters, objects, scenes, sounds, and more. Dodles helps artists protect their intellectual property through the timestamp for each asset and by crediting the original author with a tag that follows licensed content throughout the system.
Craig Doriot has a proven, extensive history of turning technical innovation from concept to sale on shoestring startup budgets. He co-founded Yupi Internet, a major Hispanic-based search portal, in 1996 (sold eventually to Microsoft). He led the turnaround web strategy for a water filter distribution which spun off into a company with sales exceeding $10 million annually. And his latest startup venture (LoanSifter) was sold in 2013 amidst a number of challenges that form our story, being produced into an animated comic within the app itself.
Craig’s sale proceeds from LoanSifter are nearly spent in funding this project, which he sees as easily his greatest opportunity to date.
The highs and lows of Craig’s fascinating adventures are the subject of a funny musical animation interwoven throughout the dodles app as progress rewards. Some of the highlights include: the embarrassing story of meeting his future wife on a plane, dealing with corrupt sharks in the business world, learning to seek and follow and trust God, and the founding of dodles.
Dodles believes in the unique value of every single person, and wishes to use its influence to highlight the plights of those who are often discarded by society, because they don’t fall into acceptable norms. We believe dodles will help those with autism by turning their ability to hyper-focus into productivity and become effective in communication, as they learn to express themselves through dodles’ creative tools and find self-worth in the collaborative universe.
Craig has overcome many barriers to have a successful career and marriage as someone diagnosed with High Functioning Autism (formerly asperger’s), along with his dodles colleague and Chief Innovation Officer, Paul Klemstine. He hopes that the public success with dodles will raise awareness of the capabilities of those with autism, while also inspiring others who struggle with it.
