Sundance House Installation

Commissioned by HP
Produced by Helm Media

The Animation Hotline Hotspots were built as an interactive event for the Sundance Film Festival. The Hotspots are television-telephone combinations that allow the viewer to watch previously created Animation Hotline videos and then, if they feel inspired, pick up the attached phone and leave their own message. Ten messages were then chosen to be animated and put back on the televisions (as well as the internet) to be viewed. The five Hotspots were placed throughout the festival (HP Sundance House, Filmmaker Lounge, and in will-call lines), and the new messages were animated live at the Sundance House in downtown Park City, UT, during the festival.
