Bot & Dolly's Film Box joined the ranks of other Webby Award honorees by winning the 2013 category prize for Best Experimental & Weird Internet video. The Experimental & Weird category honors sites and Internet videos that reflect a fresh perspective in thought and action strong enough to start a revolution, change a behavior pattern, or advance old thinking lodged in bad habits, or that are just plain weird.
Congratulations to the Bot & Dolly team for their amazing work. We are proud to have been part of this Internet sensation and know that there is more to come from this creative powerhouse.
"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.
