    Has anyone heard of the Harlem Shake? It's some sort of craze, sweeping the internet! Well, it's basically a group of people in any desired location, usually in a typical or mundane setting, behaving in a normal manner. One person will start dancing and then all of a sudden everyone will join in, wearing strange and random outfits, doing completely random things. Some of them are actually pretty funny.
    Anyway, my friend has decided to start up a large (50 - 100) Harlem Shake charity event for the NSPCC and we're in need of some one to take care of the video editing. I've found a nice little compilation of Harlem Shake entries for you and posted it below. As you'll see, there's not a whole lot that needs doing but it would be nice to get someone on board who knows what they're doing.

    If anyone could lend some help, that would be awesome. If you require any more details please ask below!
    P.S. The first scene does not set the tone for the following ones!

    This might help.To break it down, the Harlem Shake meme is:[14T x (A1 + V1)] => Δ => [14T x (A2 + V2)] => [2T x (A3+V3)]Or[14 seconds of (build-up music) played as (one person passively dances while others linger around them motionless)] then an instant video cut to [14 seconds of (bombastic dance music) played as (many people dance aggressively)] then [2 seconds of (a slurring sound) and (slow-motion video of the aggressive dancing)]Some references:[url="https://www.youtube.com/watch...ch?v=8vJiSSAMNWw&feature=youtube_gdata_player[/URL][url="https://www.youtube.com/watch...ch?v=8vJiSSAMNWw&feature=youtube_gdata_player[/URL]Better late than never.

    [​IMG]Its just not cool anymore, its not viral when they start doing Harlem Shake porn clips (oh yes) and it pops up on regional news as an 'and finally'.Some things were meant to stay viral and only really work online. They generally are poorly shot, crudely edited and quite small and compressed. That's why they work because they can be easily emailed and quickly viewed at work or school.But anything that can raise money for such a worthwhile like the NSPPC should be commended.

    Well the popularity surrounding The Harlem Shake only serves to encourage people into joining into an activity or event for the purpose of raising money for the charity in question. Outside of that, and people having a good time, it doesn't really matter. We're not looking to make a video with the most hits.
