I am sure you remember the La Luna short. Well now there is an App that can take you further into the journey of Bambino and his family. I am really not a fan of the shorts but this one I really loved. It is just such a cute story.
The App retails for $3.99 in the App Store. I think it is worth every penny.
There are a few different areas of the App:
Short Film: Well it is just that, the short film. You can watch the Short in this part of the App. I must admit I couldn’t stop watching it. I have always wondered, does it sound they are speaking gibberish to you?
Interactive Video: This is like a digital storybook. The story is narrated and the words appear on the screen. At some point during the story an arrow will pop up and you get to control the movements of the characters. I like that because it makes you feel like you are a part of the story.
Storybook: This looks just like a traditional storybook except the story is narrated. You get to turn the page to continue the story just like a real storybook.
Behind the Scenes: This is the coolest because you get to see what goes into making this adorable short. There are a few different categories within this feature:
Storyboards: You get to see each characters 3-d model on a turntable. Click on the character and swipe across it to see it slowly turn so you can view it from all sides.
Sound Design: You get to see side by side scenes with how they made the sound for that scene.
Visual Design: This shows you how they make the characters. How they look and function the way they do.
Progression Reel: This is the best because it shows how it all comes together to become the short we all know and love.
Overall I give this App an A! The only thing I would say that could make it better is if it had included a game.
Wishing you Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust
