Six for the Sky

This book is different! In “Six for the Sky” you don’t need to find six small ∞-symbols to watch the full loop on your device but you need to connect the dots to accomplish the full picture.

Miga meets a boy on a black hill with a watering-can in his hands. The guy watering the ground. Changing the perspective we see that Miga and the boy are not on a hill, they’re on top of a black tree.The white water-drops scatter over the black tree like shining stars on a beautiful night sky. The camera pans down the tree and we see the cross-section of the ground. The ground with the water-drops, tree’s roots and some white stones form a night sky and shining star signs. Some of the roots that connect the stars shape a picture which needs to be completed by connecting the dots in the loop book. The last drops and connections form a swing where a girl in a white dress is sitting. She has a growing black tree in her hands. The camera zooms in and we see the black tree in front of a the white background of her dress. ∞

 

Even though the two are not together yet they share the same sky.
Above you can see the storyboard and a sketch of the pictures you get after connecting all the dots correctly. The movie shows a mock-up of the loop book. This book is the other way round, if it’s fully open you will have a nice poster of the three and the night sky.
