Novi Sad-based startup Wonder Dynamics raises $9 million

Novi Sad-based startup, founded by Hollywood actor Tye Sheridan and visual-effects artist Nikola Todorović, announced today it has raised $9 million in what it called a “highly strategic” Series A round. The funding was led by Horizons Ventures with participation from Epic Games and Samsung Next.

Over the last four years, Sheridan and Todorović have been quietly experimenting with using artificial intelligence and machine learning to create interactive video applications. Now, Wonder Dynamics is gearing up to introduce a new AI production tool that they promise will let independent artists produce dazzling VFX and CGI animations for far less than is required today.

The funds will be used to expand the team of machine learning engineers and CG artists in order to expedite the development of Wonder AI Suite – an AI-driven, cloud-based content creation platform. The foundation of the platform is designed to bring blockbuster-level VFX to creators of all levels, but the potential of its applications extends well beyond visual effects.

Sheridan, who starred in Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One” and “X-Men: Apocalypse”, and Todorovic have lined up a roster of Hollywood and tech mavens for their advisory board.

Wonder Dynamics has offices in Los Angeles and Novi Sad.
