Dancers Wanted

Hello internet!

I'm looking for dancers. And by dancers, I don't necessarily mean professional. I'm working on a video right now that involves dancing; I'd do it myself except for the fact that I cannot dance to save my life. That's where you come in...

With your camera on a tripod or table, film yourself dancing for 10-15 seconds. Make sure your entire body is in frame. If you're doing something that involves only your hands, you can just film that. All styles are welcome. If you're not sure what to do, try some Michael Jackson, Beyonce or even Napoleon Dynamite moves. Feel free to use props. Remember, this isn't a contest so have fun with it!

Please send as high quality as possible, HD is preferred but not required. If you're using point and shoot style camera that records video, you can just send the entire file from the memory card. Upload the file using www.yousendit.com and send the download link to dance@mikerelm.com.

The deadline is Saturday, January 9, so get dancing! Please email dance@mikerelm.com with any questions you might have.
This video is a good example of framing, notice he set the camera on a table or tripod:

Home, Sweet Home!


Blue Man Group's "How To Be A Megastar 2.0". Whew, it was a tour like no other...February 2007-May 2008, over 200 shows (not counting the ones I had on "day-offs"). It was an experience of a lifetime, where I got to play for packed arena crowds for more than a year and worked with one of the most amazing groups of people the entertainment community has to offer. I'm a lucky bastard, most artists would be lucky to have a handful of the shows that I've been doing for over a year. So if anyone from BMG is reading this, THANK YOU. You guys have your pick of the litter and you chose me. Lucky for us, I don't suck. The level of talent on stage every night was phenomenal and inspiring, from Blue Man to the band (which by the way, just so happens to be made of world class musicians).

So I said my good-byes, which felt similar to when I say good-bye to my family and friends before I leave home. Maybe because for the most part they have been my family. I have the utmost respect for them and I can't wait for a reunion!

Feels great to be home...for the moment.
