Turning 50? What better way to celebrate than a trip through the decades of your life with a Video DJ at the Port Theater in Corona Del Mar, which is exactly what Irene did. Party Planner Lisa Fogerty was most instrumental in fusing the foods and decor with the decades. TV dinners for the ’60s, fondue for the ’70s, Chinese chicken salad for the ’80s and so on.
Sometimes I come across something so creative I just have to step back and breathe. Can you imagine coming home after working your hard job and getting back to work on your video project that is this complicated. Kina Grannis, 26 did just that with this video using 288,000 jelly beans and a concept idea by director Greg Jardin. Production was very intense for each of the 2,460 individual frames, and a crew had to build a jelly bean portrait out of thousands of jelly beans which Grannis would then lay down on a piece of glass mounted over the jelly beans. The topper to this video is that the song is really great, and I will definitely add it to the Tasty Sounds play-lists.
Yes I know the Harlem Shake craze is weird, (and a huge waste of time if your looking at them on youtube) and many of you don’t understand it, but anytime I can get all crazy then I’m all the way in. The first one is for my Daughter Kelly’s elementary schoolCalahan, they had a jog-o-thon that I volunteer for and I talked them into doing it. The second video is for a great family (Hamontree) in Newport who had a 8 year old birthday party. I’m not sure the kids understood what I wanted them to do, but they seem crazy and Jen my dancer and I had fun. The next one isSt. Eupharasia Catholic Schoolin Granada Hills, and I was handling another Jog-o-thon. What was great about this one is the principal Mrs. Blair helped start things off, fun school, fun parents, and great teachers. Lastly we handled Maia Yosef’s Bat Mitzvah and of course we had to do the Harlem Shake. It’s a little like where’s Waldo but instead it’s wheres DJ Alvis?
