The Bolt Cinebot co-starred in a fantastic new music video featuring Jax Jones and Ella Henderson recently, proving that it can be a hit both in front and behind the camera! Currently, the video has had 1.7 million views on Youtube. The cool creative video was shot at Love High-Speed Studios using their camera equipment and was shot on an Alexa Mini and Phantom Flex4K.
Director Favourite Colour Black said “The idea for this video had been in the back of my mind for a while. Every time I do something with motion control, I watch the rigs and can’t help but imagine them being alive. Maybe it’s because I grew up with films like Demon Seed, Short Circuit and The Terminator. The brief was very open – to do something with choreography, as neither of the artists were available, and the song title ’This is Real’ seemed fitting with the idea of someone dancing with a robot.
It was a very tight turnaround. I wrote a script with timecodes from the song, which I gave to my choreographer Mark Jennings, and he turned those ideas into movement. Once we’d done that, we took another day programming the Bolt … to ‘react’ to the main dancer’s choreography” .
