New App From Matthew Modine Allows Kubrick Fans Insight Into 'Full Metal Jacket' Production

Stanley Kubrick fans now have an opportunity to explore the making of his 1987 Vietnam War film "Full Metal Jacket" like never before with a new iPad app, created in a collaboration between the film's star Matthew Modine and artist Adam Rackoff.

The partially Kickstarter-funded app is comprised of Modine's personal diary, whose detailed accounts from the film's two year shoot originally made up the 2005 book "Full Metal Jacket Diary." Now, with the help of Rackoff, the original diary has been adapted into an app that combines audio effects, original footage, interviews, and Modine's original diary into one all-encompassing experience, now available on Apple's App Store or at the www.fullmetaljackdiary.com, along with stills from the set and the diary in print form.

For those interested who do not own an iPad, "Full Metal Jacket Diary" has been accepted into the "APP" category of the 4th Annual new Media Film Festival, which will run June 11th and 12th at the Landmark West LA theatre in Los Angeles. Visit www.NewMediaFilmFestival.com for any additional information on the festival.

    The "Full Metal Jacket Diary" app is a work of art. I recently interviewed Matthew Modine and he shared about how the idea to create an appumentary was born. Here is a link to my interview with Matthew Modine who also shared how using his intuition has guided his success as a filmmaker and humanist.
