Cyber Group Launches ‘Giganto Club’ on YouTube Kids

Created with motion capture driven by XSENS technology and powered by Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, the studio’s first fully digital native real-time kids’ animated series is now available globally.

Cyber Group Studios has partnered with YouTube to launch Giganto Club, its first fully digital-native and 100% real-time animation series, now available globally on YouTube Kids. Available in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish, the show builds on the success of the studio’s popular animated show Gigantosaurus which launched worldwide in 2019.

Giganto Club is hosted by real-time animated dinos that engage viewers with games, songs, and themed segments such as "Dino-news" and "Dino-guests.” The 26x11 animated series presents fascinating facts about the Cretaceous period and provides interesting comparisons with today’s world and features breathtaking landscapes and locations.

“This is the beginning of a wonderful relationship, and we are pleased to be adding Giganto Club, our very first digital native series, into the YouTube Kids Safe Streaming service,” shared Cyber Group Studios chairman and CEO Pierre Sissmann. “Cyber Group Studios continues to rapidly expand and diversify our digital presence with exciting new distribution partnerships. We’ve created exceptional and immersive content and we are thrilled to bring it to children and families around the world.”

Developed and produced in Cyber Group’s high-tech studio in Roubaix (France), the show was created with motion capture driven by XSENS technology and powered by Unreal Engine provided by Epic Games. Cyber Group Studios received an Epic MegaGrant from Epic Games in 2021 to help the company accelerate its ability to create immersive entertainment experiences and further its mission of delivering film-quality content and interactive games to homes via all devices.

Giganto Club is directed by Olivier Lelardoux (Gigantosaurus), written by Mickael Frison and Jacqueline Moody (Gigantosaurus), and technically supervised by Andreas J. Carlen, a veteran lead software engineer and technical director with 25-years’ of experience in real-time production. The virtual production and real-time animation initiatives are being led by Cyber Labs, the brainstorming and experimentation division of Cyber Group Studios.
