Wonky Films has released an app for its latest short film “Why did the chicken cross the road?” The short film which was part crowd-funded finally provides us with the answer to one of life’s greatest questions, a question more baffling than whether the chicken or the egg came first, but now Wonky have the true story behind the famous question. The journey follows Mr Chicken all the way from his troubled childhood to the most famous moment of his life.

The Why Did the Chicken Cross The Road? app which is now available for free from the Apple app store for the iPad contains the full film, plus a peek behind the scenes with additional content including storyboards, animatics and film designs by illustration duo Peskimo. This bonus content provides the viewer with a valuable insight into the steps involved in producing an animated film. Great for aspiring animators to get a glimpse behind the scenes

There is also a bunch of additional mini games featuring the films protagonist Mr Chicken and his pesky enemies Robin and his gang, including the addictive “Whack a Robin” and the challenging “Quest for the Golden Egg”, plus hundreds of laughs to be had with the “Joke Generator”.

Jake Hobbs, Research & Interactive developer at Wonky Films said of the app:“At Wonky we are looking at the new ways we can deliver our animated content across digital platforms. On mobile and tablet devices there are exciting opportunities to reach new audiences and showcase our work in new ways, a we are looking to utilise our film content in order to explore these opportunities. We hope that this app for Why did the chicken cross the road? will be the first of many apps released in tandem with our upcoming short films.”
