Are you a fan of FULL METAL JACKET? Do you have an iPad? Are you broke? Well if you happen to sit in middle of that Venn diagram, Mathew Modine has you covered!!!
FULL METAL JACKET DIARY (FMJD) has been called an "appumentary" by Entertainment Weekly, “something Stanley Kubrick would be proud of" by Wired Magazine, and named "iPad App of the Week” by Gizmodo. It was selected as one of the "Best Book Apps of 2012" by Kirkus Book Reviews, won the "Best App" award at the 2013 New Media Film Festival, and received the "Best Mobile Media Programming" Award of Merit from The Accolade Competition.
"In 1985, Stanley Kubrick encouraged me to take photos and keep a journal while playing the lead role of Pvt. Joker on the set of FULL METAL JACKET. In 2005, I published a limited edition book of my photos and diary. This app is based on that book; enriched and reimagined as an interactive, audiovisual experience. I hope you enjoy it!"
This weekend Matthew has made the iPad edition of his book available for free through the App Store.
