The Book, The Art of Mila, celebrates the creation of this groundbreaking short film, taking readers behind the scenes with full-color illustrations and a detailed background on each step of the process. Showcasing the best examples of the earliest concept art, spectacular full-color stills and all the steps in-between, this book includes character studies, color scripts, storyboards and more. The careful artistry involved in recreating the warn-torn town of Trento, Italy frames the poignant story of Mila, a courageous young survivor of a WW II bombing attack on her home town. Through a masterful use of lighting, texture and design, we not only see Mila find hope again through the kindness of a stranger, but also feel her disappointments and her triumph.
