DisneyXD Snobots

DOMO ARIGATO MR. SNOBOTO

To celebrate the holidays on Disney XD,for two years running, we’ve created a snow spectacular featuring the SnoBots. Reuniting with artist and cardboard sculptor Kiel Johnson, we shot on green screen with a live-action cast of pop-lock dancers wearing his cardboard robot suits, and then whipped up some CG snow for them to play in. Abominable snow farts and some shivery shuffling highlight “SnoBots Dance.” For “SnoBots Fight,” we incorporated animated video game graphics to depict the high-tech snow fight every boy dreams of. The project was inspired by our “Dancing Machine” music video, created with Johnson and Cypress Valley College, after it showcased at PromaxBDA in 2012.
