Oh, what a lov-e-ly bunch of coconuts...
App Description**An "Essential purchase for any self-respecting Python fan." â€” ZDNet**
Submerge yourself in the world of Monty Python & the Holy Grail as the six members of Monty Python take you on their foolhardy quest to make an epic film in just 28 days (coconuts not included) through this interactively interactive Holy Book of Days.
In order to re-create authentically all 28 shooting days of The Holy Grail, the Pythons have gone back to their vaults and pulled out a treasure trove of never-before-seen (or heard) outtakes, rehearsals, songs, sound effects, scripts, dozens of stills, and much much more.
Every page of the Holy Book of Days is packed with Python history, from Michael Palinâ€™s day-by-day diary of the filming to Terry Gilliamâ€™s storyboards to the original continuity sheets covering every shot to 360Âş views of props from the movie, itâ€™s an unprecedented and a totally new look at Holy Grail.
The Holy Book of Days is crammed with over a gigabyte of media, including:
* More than 70 minutes of never-before-seen video, including outtakes and visits to the Holy Grail locations.
* Interactive 360Â° Props
* More than an hour of audio, featuring rehearsals, wild tracks, songs, sound effects and your favorite quotes from the film
* Interactive map
* Original animations
* Never-before-seen stills
* An introduction by John Cleese
* The screenplay
* Continuity Sheets
* Michael Palinâ€™s Diaries
* And more!
The Holy Book of Days is a stand-alone app -- but it can also provide a Second Screen companion to the Blu-ray release of Monty Python & the Holy Grail. With your iPad and Blu-ray player synced via your WiFi network, the app becomes your remote control and lets you see the exact scenes talked about in The Holy Book of Days. Itâ€™s an entirely new way of watching the film.
