Shmonster Is…

We are a software company focused on educational tools that utilize art and animation. At Shmonster, we believe animation should be fun, intuitive, and accessible to everyone. This is our passion, and we want to share it with you.

Shmonster was founded by software engineer and visual effects professional Michal Finegold. Michal is a proud mom and avid artist, who wants to encourage creativity in people of all ages.

Michal has years of experience in film and television, as well as experience teaching at places such as the School of Visual Arts.

Our Projects

We make software that helps you easily animate anything. Our customers can range from children bringing to life their drawings and toys, to animation professionals creating design driven visual effects. We’ve got some iPad apps for kids on the store already, and more are on the way.
