The idea for “Sonaria” was conceived by Scot Stafford, creative director of music and sound for all the Google Spotlight Stories projects. Stafford co-directed the short with L.A.-based animation studio Chromosphere.
Duet is an interactive animated story. It is a synthesis of the most ground breaking virtual world technology and the most ancient of all art forms—drawing. From the beginning of this project we knew it would be a celebration of life through line. Pollen won the 2015 AICE Award for best original score.
Justin Lin and YouTube have released the first digital live-action short that fully uses Google’s 360-degree technology. Directed by Lin (Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift, Star Trek Beyond), puts the viewer in the middle of downtown Los Angeles just as an alien crash-lands on the planet.
Aardman Animations (Wallace and Gromit, Shaun the Sheep), Google ATAP’s Spotlight Stories, and Pollen Music Group team up for the original short, Special Delivery, a film using Spotlight’s unique interactive storytelling experience that is viewable on the YouTube app.
“Much in the same way that Pixar has tried to bring animated shorts back, these two Spotlight Stories put a warm smile on your face and leave you with a desire to see more. From a technical perspective, these stories create an amazing augmented reality landscape.” – Wired
The phone’s screen becomes a looking-glass that peers into a stylized virtual forest. Music plays, with the Django-esque, jazzy feel of an old-time Paris bistro. Move the phone up, down, right, left, and you can see more and more of this colorful world. Try it yourself in the Google Spotlight Stories app for Android and iOs.
