White The App - Catherine Wheels and Hippotrix Case Study - AmbITion

White The App - Catherine Wheels and Hippotrix Case Study - AmbITion | White: The App | Scoop.it
One of the greatest challenges in making the app was maintaining the feel of the original production. Jonathan and Simone worked very closely with White‘s designer, Shona Reppe. They painstakingly photographed all the individual elements of the show’s set to capture her original design intention. It was a time consuming process, but has given the app the same tactile ‘homespun’ feel that makes the show so charming.
Ben Fletcher-Watson's insight:
Producer Paul Fitzpatrick describes the making of the app as a case study for the AmbITion programme.
