Rusty Frank and the Global Lindy Community present...
"I CHARLESTON L.A."
It's L.A. Wear whatever you want! The other I Charleston The World videos show people wearing casual and colorful attire. But, if you feel like it, dress up! Dress in your favorite swing dance clothes. Dress vintage-y. Dress dapper. Let's have fun with this!
Take a look at "I Charleston Sofia" (Bulgaria) to see how they dressed.
SMALLER SHOOTS: We have a list of locations we want to include (List). If you would like to grab one of those, email me - firstname.lastname@example.org - so I can remove it from the list. Don't go and shoot until I confirm the location is yours!
WHO CHOREOGRAPHS MY ROUTINE?
You and your friends. Or you can use Rusty's "I Charlesto L.A." routine. Be fun, be creative, be zany, be goofy...
WHO FILMS IT?
Hand your camera or iphone to someone!
WHAT IS THE DEADLINE?
April 30th!!!! (We dont' want to take forever on this)
Don't worry about the sound, as we'll be taking your video and laying it over the master track.
HOW LONG SHOULD MY DANCE BE?
I would say, don't make it longer that 8 counts of 8.
ANYTHING I SHOULD KNOW BEFORE I SHOOT MY BIT?
Make sure the light is good. Actually foggy, gloomy days are great, as shadows aren't cast on you.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN BE IN MY GROUP?
As many or as few as you want!
PLEASE BE COURTEOUS TO THOSE AROUND YOU, AND ESPECIALLY BE QUICK. JUST GRAB IT AND GO!
