It took a crew of more than 60 people to stage and film the three shoots. The “High Five Robot” spent two weeks traveling to Tokyo. The three robots have traveled a combined total of more than 15,500 miles. 65 hours 52 minutes and 43 seconds of footage was acquired on 26 cameras over 3 days of shooting.

About the Stunt: ● Why robots? ooVoo is a tech company that enables people to connect emotionally. The robots are symbolic of how technology can spark emotional connections. ● Why a family? ooVoo is great for connecting families across distance. We made a mom, dad, and kid to represent the families who are using ooVoo. ● What were the interactions? We didn’t tell people what the correct interaction would be. They had to figure it out on their own. The mom robot (New York) needed to be hugged. The kid robot (New Jersey) needed a fist bump. The dad robot (Toyko) needed a high five. In Japan, a high five is called a "High Touch" (ハイタッチ) ● What were the prizes? The winner in New York (hug) won $1,000. The winner in New Jersey (fist bump) won a tandem bicycle. The winner in Toyko (high five) won a karaoke party for 10 people. Music by Kye Kye: https://youtu.be/wkRXwYNigDI
