Parent Category: 19-09-2013
Spanish production company Tiempo de Rodar has released the country's first app series – El Gran Día de los Feos – a short production designed for mobile devices through an Android and iOS app, according to Europa Press.
The main idea is for it to be more than a regular web series, enabling various kinds of interaction between the viewer and the audiovisual product.
Social TV activities are one of the principal aspects of the app. The series has a social layer which allows users to comment and share online while watching the episodes. In addition, the app connects the series with its background, bringing access to, for example, the characters' blogs, the series' social profiles, pictures and extra audiovisual contents.
The first two episodes are released today (19 September) and are available by downloading the app. The other six episodes will be freed up in packages of two and have a price of €0.99. The app includes the possibility of purchasing the whole series, while all the episodes will be directly available in the device as soon as they get released.
El Gran Día de los Feos is a comedy which reflects on totalitarian politics and offers a critical overview about fashion, over-consumption and media power, and how not everybody is accepted within the system.
