#WatchMeViz – Submit your video!

September 22, 2015

My loyal readers probably saw the last post about chart based dance moves and guessed something was up. Well, you were right. My pal Aaron (who recently started a blog called Veni, Vidi, Vizi) approached me with an idea to do a Tableau based parody of the hit dance craze “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)”. Together, we wrote some new lyrics and came up with some dance moves and “Watch Me Viz” was born! The fabulous MC Short Shorts helped out with the backing track:

Now we need your help! We want to put this all together into an awesome music video before TC15 and we need dancers! You can submit videos by hosting them on Dropbox, Google drive, or another file sharing tool and filling out this form.

Of course, to make a video, you are going to need to know the dance moves. Luckily, I made this handy guide. (And yes, an entire wall of my apartment is a giant map. Deal with it.)

And during the “Oooh TC15!” part, you can freestyle. I recommend recreating moves from old episodes of Soul Train for inspiration. Now go get your groove on and send me your videos! I need the videos by October 1st in order to make the video in time for TC15!

Couple Questions:
Are you looking for raw footage to edit or can we use video effects?
One video with the music, or broken out into the moves?

    Just looking for footage. I’m going to splice a bunch of the clips I get sent together for one music video! You can send it all it one video though
