Robot Builders Doc Bots High: Mad Hot Ballroom with Nerds – Thompson on Hollywood [Press]

Robot Builders Doc Bots High: Mad Hot Ballroom with Nerds – Thompson on Hollywood Bots High is a film that proudly declares its geekiness, which is a promising sign for a documentary that follows three groups of high school robotics students as they develop and (literally) battle their way to a national combat robots competition in Miami. Basically, it’s Mad Hot Ballroom with nerds. Check out the great writeup of Bots High and the Free Screening Day over at the IndieWire blog Thompson on Hollywood (though written by Combs). I love the headline, that was exactly what I pitched the film as two years ago when I was meeting people. Sadly they hadn’t seen Mad Hot Ballroom. But the same fate doesn’t have to happen to you with Bots High – join a free screening!...

If you’ve found yourself here because you just read the article, then welcome! Bots High is a documentary I’ve been working on for over a year. I’m currently wrapping up editing, and then the film will be sent off to get the sound and image polished. It’ll hit the festival circuit early next year. Here are ways to stay connected with the film: Newsletter – Sign-up for the newsletter. Frequency is about once a month, if that, so you won’t be getting bombarded with emails. This is also the best way to find out about screenings and DVD releases. Facebook Page – Most of the updates I post are here, along with links to cool things I find online. Twitter – I post a lot of updates here too YouTube & Vimeo – There are a few podcasts up. As editing the actual documentary comes to an end, more podcasts will start coming up. In a way they’ll be mini-documentaries. I shot over 100 hours of footage. 1% of that made it into the film. There’s lots of little side stories that just couldn’t fit into the film, and they’ll be put online. Thanks for checking out the film! Please feel free to leave any questions or comments...
