2015

Dogbotic collaborated with the dynamic Hungarian animation duo Mészáros & Rádóczy to create an orchestra of office supplies for the quirky and delightful universe of "Black-Out." Much like the film's blurred lines between live action and animation, the score vacillates between the diegetic pulse of the protagonist's drawl clerical life and the electric groove of a Brazilian-inspired percussion ensemble. As our hero escapes the modern prison of the office, he finds solace in returning to the wild--all thanks to an industrial apocalypse brought by an auspiciously timed power outage.

"Black-Out" has charmed audiences and judges alike at some of Europe's largest film festivals, including Contravision, the London International Animation Festival, and Ciné Court Animé, among many others.
