Madefire

Madefire has developed a proprietary Motion Book Tool that delivers a reimagined collaboration experience for the storytellers, stylists, innovators and writers behind the stories.

Their goal is to give creators the freedom to escape from the traditional confines of 21 static pages, and create a new world of words, pictures, motion and sound. The Madefire app unites the artistry of comics and graphic novels with the iPad’s groundbreaking interactive capabilities. The app offers a continuous flow of new episodes and original titles from some of the world’s most renowned storytellers, including comics book legend Dave Gibbons, with his new title “Treatment.”
