Globe Trot (50 filmmakers, 23 countries, 1 dance)
This is an international crowd-sourced dance-film project put together over the web. I got 50 filmmakers on all seven continents (including Antarctica) to each shoot two seconds of dance by choreographer Bebe Miller. There was a manual on my website that trained the filmmakers in how to learn their 4-count phrase assignment and how to frame the performer they would find on the street. Each person then sent their footage back to me for editing. I explain it more in this HuffPo blog.
Role: director, editor

That video was super great, love the dance, the locations, and the collaboration that made it all possible.

Awesome concept. Thanks for sharing the manual. It's interesting to see the planning and directions given to achieve the effect.

Speaking as a guy who generally dislikes dance in all its various forms, this is absolutely mind-blowing. SUPER awesome flick.

Bravo! Great project. Big bouquets of roses to all involved. I've been looking for great clips to show some best-of-the-internet to the elderly people I work with. They will love this, as do I.
