Russian superheroes are so popular that BUBBLE's stories get translated into other languages by our international partners and are then published in Europe. A few years ago we also launched a special neural network that turns photos into comic book frames based on one of our most popular artists' works. The network is still learning and you can always help it by uploading your photo to Bubble Face: https://face.bubble.ru/en/
Our next ambition is game development and creating mobile and video games based on our characters and stories. We are also taking our first steps in the direction of getting our heroes to the world of cartoons and animation.
BUBBLE Studios, our movie division, was created back in 2015 when we filmed a short movie "Major Grom" all on our own and then presented it at the Berlin International Film Festival 2017. Right now the film is free to watch on YouTube. It won the hearts of Russian viewers right away, getting more than 3 million views in the first couple of days, and then was streamed on the main Russian TV channel. https://youtu.be/RLt65JxNsWI
That kind of popularity allowed the creation of a full scale movie which came to the cinema screens nationwide on April 1st 2021: the first ever blockbuster based on Russian comics, Major Grom: The Plague Doctor received high praise from viewers and critics alike.
