The shooting, carried out through pure cinematographic style, is founded and is based on a theory in which the shots are "preparatory sketches" where dip the graphic pen, without ever resorting to pre-packaged tricks. The editing of the tables is based then, in true comic style, on an accurate storyboard. This is created before the shooting and in line with the predetermined story.
The book can be browsed in sequence from the beginning to the end, following the script of the author, as well as you can savor every single table as a separate element, every time the reader wants.
The application, available in Italian and English, contains 93 high-resolution images grouped in more than 50 boards. In the final part of the volume, for the curious ones and for the lovers of the "making of", the app collects more than 100 images from the backstage.
