On September 24, Avantgarde in conjunction with The Creators Project launched Bot & Dolly's BOX, a film that documents a first ever live synchronized performance using 3D Projection Mapping, Robots and Actors. The launch was an amazing success with over 1 million views in first 24 hours and 4 million views to date. Press for the film included Engadget, Wired, Gizmodo, io9, Motionographer, The Verge and The Creators Project to name a few.
As io9 says, "It's a five-minute short film called "Box" — and it's nothing short of revolutionary."
"Box" explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely in camera. Bot & Dolly produced this work to serve as both an artistic statement and technical demonstration. It is the culmination of multiple technologies, including large scale robotics, projection mapping, and software engineering. We believe this methodology has tremendous potential to radically transform theatrical presentations, and define new genres of expression.
