Good to see that artists have no qualms of sitting anywhere when they want to capture something interesting. 12 minute video. All this activity reminded me of the Urban Sketchers I captured four years ago at the Botanical Survey of India. Something big is coming up for the Urban Sketchers in the first week of December. These three slides below will give you a better idea of the event.

You can dance in any style as long as it blends with the beat and the music. Video 1 Video 2 Video 3 There is some more footage of the band and if time permits, I will upload them too. If you see most of the pictures above in fancy colours, it is because of the psychedelic lights that were used at the venue (and a nightmare for photographers) I mean just compare the two pictures below. It is the same singer Gisele in both the cases but see the difference the lighting makes.

Of late I have been trying my hand at Stop Motion animation and found it very interesting and challenging. This morning I saw this crocheted Unicorn that wifey just completed and was wondering "how can I animate this?"
Some basic tips:All non moving parts should be fixed/taped down. If using a mobile camera, keep it on Airplane mode and the Auto lock to 'Never'
Adding the right sound effects makes a lot of difference, like the steam engine approaching or the popping sound of the lid of the M&Ms container.I used the Stop Motion App to make these videos I have not used any props / armature for these videos and plan to proceed this way. It is the idea that matters.
