Bots High in Tampa this Weeked at IFF (Best Doc Winner!)

Bots High will be playing in Tampa this weekend at the Independents’ Film Festival. It’ll be playing Saturday at 10 AM and an additional screening was just added for Friday at 4 PM. Myself and editor Andrew Hevia will be there, and possibly some people from the film. We’ll also be at the awards ceremony Saturday night where Bots High will get the Best Documentary award!

Follow the History of the Teams in Bots High

Bots High takes place over the 2009-2010 school year.¬†Unsurprisingly, the teams had a history before and after the time the film takes place (2011 Epilogue now in the DVD!). So to expand the scope and add some cool context and backstory to the Oct 6 screening day, I’ve been tracing the history of each team in the film each week in the newsletter. So far we’ve heard about how Will from Ransom first built a robot in 6th grade, went up against a senior team, and won. Just now we explored freshman year of My Mechanical Romance’s Liz and Danielle, when they first get introduced to robotics. I’m using Storify to compile this narrative, and updating as I release new stories via newsletter. But the newsletter goes more in depth with longer anecdotal stories. So catch up and check out the history of the teams on the Storify page, and signup for the newsletter to get a weekly update about a team or robot in the film, leading up to October...

New Epilogue Video Update

I’m working on the epilogue for the new DVD release and took a brake to show the bizarre, close proximity I am to what I’m editing.
