Google Unveils New Trailer for Felix Massie’s ‘Rain or Shine’

Trailer comes on the heels of a sneak preview of ‘Rain or Shine’ from Google Spotlight Stories at the Annecy International Animation Festival.

Google Spotlight Stories presents the trailer for their newest story, Rain or Shine, directed by Felix Massie.

The sun is shining, the birds are singing, there’s a spring in everybody’s step. Everyone in London is enjoying a perfect summer's day… Until Ella steps outside. Everywhere she goes it rains -- is she going to ruin everyone’s day forever?

Together with Nexus Animation Studio, Google Spotlight Stories proudly presented a sneak preview of Rain or Shine at the Annecy International Animation Festival. The project is the studio’s most interactive short yet -- as with other Spotlight Stories, the viewer can look around, and in doing so, can find subplots and surprises.

Google Spotlight Stories is a new form of storytelling made specifically for mobile and VR. In these 360-degree interactive stories, users’ phones become a window to a world all around them. The sensors on your phone allow the story to be interactive; when you move your phone to various scenes, you are able to unlock mini-stories within the story.
