The Disney Pixar short "La Luna" wordlessly tells the story of a young boy who accompanies his father and grandfather in a rowboat to the moon so they can sweep up the stars that have fallen. In "La Luna: The Story Project," this video is released in an app that also retells the story in a charmingly narrated interactive video and a sumptuously water-colored storybook. The app also offers a look behind the scenes, as storyboards progress from line drawings to simple renderings to the full video, and showing how sounds and models are created to help in the telling of the story.

Tablets and mobile devices have changed how we consume media. The ability to touch and interact with content adds a new dimension to the narrative experience, and the content itself can be personalized to the user. Creating these experiences, however, typically involves programming bottom-up at significant cost, delays and loss of creative control.
The Swik Platform provides a sandbox where content owners can author these next-generation narratives in an environment that is creator friendly, integrates with existing tools (Photoshop, After Effects, Pro Tools, etc.) and content management systems, and embraces the tight iterative process at the heart of all good storytelling.
