Directed by David Codeglia and shot by James Codeglia, Misty Robotics entrusted Ghostlight to announce their amazing home robot to the world.

David co-wrote the script with producer Rob Maigret, focusing on Misty’s place in robotics history and robot developers and fans alike. James shot on Ghostlight’s Red camera in 8K, blending several aesthetics from smooth cinematic camera moves to documentary handheld. The result is a slick ad that looks more expensive than it cost.

Our RoboCop Remake - Scene 9A giant cardboard robot shoots a puppet!

Our RoboCop Remake is a fan-made parody of the classic film RoboCop, where each scene is created by a different filmmaking team. David directed Scene 9 and James was the Director of Photography and they both built the full-size walking replica of the original ED-209. Ghostlight edited and created the VFX. Our scene was a massive undertaking that succeeded because of our amazing all-volunteer cast and crew, whom we thank with all our hearts. Full credits on YouTube!
