Our friend Tim Collins from Mexico City shares with us a cool dance video production that we're very excited about: "The One-8 Project." They are looking for help to finish production on six amazing dance animations, featuring over 760 dancers.
Introducing the One-8 Project - Crowd funding campaign!
More than 3 years in the making, The One-8 Project is a stop-motion animation featuring 760 Lindy Hoppers from 37 countries. Each couple takes the position of the couple before them and continues the organically evolving swing dance choreography defined by the creativity of every dancer involved. The first phase of the project was shot in front of a green screen at Frankie100 in 2014.
Each song will have a distinct animation style.
The project contains:
- 7460 photos
- 461 8s = over 115 phrases = nearly 29 choruses
- 6 songs
- 16 minutes of animation not including credits at roughly 220 Beats per minute
This project a testament to the incredible International Lindy Hop scene. It is a demonstration to the world that we are all equal. That the Lindy Hop builds community and is a magnificent unifier. That we don’t need to speak the same language, or have the same ideology, or eat the same thing for breakfast, but that we can solve many of the world’s problems and misunderstandings if we all knew how to swing out.
