The Nexus

Check out my latest collaboration with Chantal Claret! We used Google's Nexus One, and since I'm the world's worst dancer, I got my good friend Jon "Bionic" Bayani to do his thing!

In case you're wondering, yes the video on the phone is the actual video being played on the Nexus, NOT added in post-production.

You can also download the song on iTunes!

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:

San Frandisco!

I love San Francisco. I love film. What better way to combine the two than with a party at Mezzanine with the San Francisco Film Society? Friday was an absolute blast, and I got to unleash over an hour of all new material to a packed house! I also got to hang with Party Ben, whose video mashups are just brilliant (and in case you couldn't tell, I'm a huge a/v snob). SFFS also brought out Peanut Butter Wolf who dropped music videos for songs that I didn't even know had music videos. I'm willing to bet he's got the largest private collection of music vids. All in all, it was fantastic. The bay area audience was amazing as usual, such a great show to come home to!
