‘The iPad edition contains all of the articles and ads appearing in our print edition, but includes nearly twice as many photographs, many of which are interactive, allowing readers to toggle back and forth between plates and comps and elements to see how visual effects shots come together. Whenever possible, we also incorporate video clips and breakdowns of effects shots and sequences.’
Just as thrilling is the promise that every single back issue of Cinefex will be made available on the iPad through the coming year – yes, all of them! If you’re a regular reader of my Revisiting Cinefex articles, I’m sure you’ll relish the chance at last to get your hands on all those classic editions from the ’80s and ’90s.
The app is free and, to kick things off, you also get a free download of issue #127 (featuring Captain America, Cowboys and Aliens, Anonymous and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows). Regular issues are priced in the UK at £2.99 each or £13.49 for an annual subscription.
So if, like me, if you’re still compiling a list of reasons to justify actually buying one of these damn new-fangled tablet things … well folks, that list just got a whole lot longer.
