Now available the new animated short 360 Google Spotlight Stories, entitled On Ice. A video of humor directed by Shannon Tindle that parodies a number of Star Wars-inspired ice skating. In addition, its graphic style is somewhat inspired by Clone Wars.
This series, inherited from the old Motorola, are not only designed to be seen 360 degrees with the mobile or virtual reality goggles, the best thing is that they are interactive. Depending on where the view focuses on each time develops a micro history or another within the main plot.
In the YouTube Player from browser or unsupported device appears that its duration is 47 seconds but not so, that’s just the trailer. You will pass if you do click in the video of this post if you have it all ready. But this issue of skating with special effects and unexpected events hard ten and a half minutes.
And as it is typical in this type of production, you can not try to see it all first. In general it is impossible to catch everything it offers a 360 video at once trying to miss a few elements, unless it takes two or three times to find everything what is happening outside the flat primary. 360 Google Spotlight Story also invites to give three or four passes to try to launch actions in the recesses of the stage.
Non-gut, here’s a small synopsis. Ice skating duo displayed their skills in a performance about Star Wars focused on the battle between the force and the dark side. The stage, a Sports Hall, converted, is perfectly decorated with ships and extras. The actors know their choreography and begin to stage his fight. But no one has an unexpected character that causes everything to change.
