Google has unveiled the trailer for On Ice, the latest short in its interactive Spotlight Stories series.
On Ice takes places at a fanciful ice show and revolves around a battle for the spotlight between its star performer and an uninvited guest. The short was directed by industry veteran Shannon Tindle, who also came up with the idea for Laika’s upcoming Kubo and the Two Strings and was the film’s original director before being replaced by Laika CEO Travis Knight.
On Ice, which was nominated for an Annie Award this year in the short category, is produced by San Francisco-based Evil Eye Pictures and developed by Google’s Advanced Technologies and Projects group (ATAP). Google, which first teased the short at Comic-Con last summer, will soon release the project for iOS and Android devices.
