Local art app used by Disney

Illustrator James Cuda’s Procreate iPad app is attracting millions of users worldwide, including Disney. “We created it for the professional market and we just built it so we would love it,” Mr Cuda told The Mercury. “Now we’re getting used by Disney and Pixar and getting great requests coming in from movie studios, but we still measure (the app and new features) by whether we’d like to use them.” Savage Interactive, which he and wife Alanna began in a spare bedroom of their suburban Hobart home, now boasts a conventional office and 11 workers. The firm’s achievements are inspiring other Australian app enthusiasts to seek similar success, with more than 113,000 Australians now working in apps. Procreate sits in second spot on Apple’s paid entertainment apps chart, making it one of Australia’s digital success stories.
