Mediagloss created sound design and interactive music for Google’s Toontastic 3D. This project included interaction sound design, music construction kits that allowed young storytellers to give their background music an arc that followed along with their story, and “sonified” these cool explainer videos like these.
With Toontastic 3D, kids can draw, animate and narrate their own stories. You just move the characters around on the screen and narrate your story aloud, like you would with puppets, and this app captures the whole thing. The app comes with lots of big, beautiful 3D environments (camping, sailing, science lab, etc), tons of characters, and 3D drawing tools so you can create your own backdrop and characters.
Google’s own launch announcement says it all: “We hope the app will empower kids to imagine, invent and explore while developing skills for the creative jobs of tomorrow—whether they dream of becoming a filmmaker, a teacher, a designer, a cartoonist, or just want to explore the boundaries of their imaginations.”
