Thinking Outside the Box
The first time watching “Box” is a unique and awesome experience.
The viewer must juggle pure enjoyment with logistical questions and thoughts about the potential boundaries.
The second time watching it—and we recommend that on a full screen—makes the magical illusions less illusory, meshing the images back to a state of reality that we can fully comprehend.
We watched in awe. How did they do it?
The production house Bot & Dolly introduces us to special robotic camera systems that can move objects with remarkable precision. Flat images projected onto the screens make it seem as if 3D objects move around a room while a man, seemingly in total control, interacts with them.
It is rare to come across a video that introduces a technique that is completely new to the film industry and to see it on the grandiose scale of “Box” is unforgettable.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
