Have you seen Where The Hell Is Matt (Dancing badly around the world) ?
If you haven't, take a look:
I was thinking that we could make something similar with hooping, but with many hoopers, like a compilation video. Hooping around the world ! Would anyone be interested ?
We would need short clips of you hooping in your home-country, or any interesting place you've travelled with a hoop. The hooping doesn't have to be fancy, simple moves are fine !
It would be nice if the background would be interesting: if not a local landmark than a street with local people or something interesting.
What do you think ? Is anyone interested in participating ?
Olivia has kindly agreed to do the video editing for this project ! Send your clips to her at firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT WHERE HOW :
* Each clip needs to be in a different location ! That means you can send more clips if you have travelled a lot.
* Can't decide whether to send the clip of you hooping my the beach or in the city square ? Send both. If we get too many clips with beaches, we'll use the city square.
* Please choose an interesting location. If you can't hoop near an interesting monument, a scenic view or some interesting animals, try an interesting street with something typical of your town: be it shop names in another language, a little fountain or statue, typical street-trams or billboards, locals staring at you... anything that says something about your corner of the world !
* Group-hooping is also welcome ! So is hooping with a bunch of bystanders / dancing friends / jugglers / jumping kangaroos.
* What kind of moves / dancing ? Whatever you like, but simple would be best ! The focus of this compilation will be the locations as much as the hooping, so using your most complicated move probably is not the best idea. The hooping should look approachable, like anyone can learn it !
* Beginners just hooping at the waist also welcome !!!
* A couple of funny / different clips would be nice: goofing around with the hoop, falling down, teaching your grandmom some moves...
