Would you like to help shoot a video? How about something like a 'Flash Mob Video'?
We can use both additional camera persons and assisting crew persons in this endeavor. Experience and/or your own equipment is Not Required, but could be helpful. We want to capture both performers and spectators alike at the 'National Train Day' event held at Portland's Union Station. We will be creating a short video which will be posted on our Stumptown Vimeo Web Site … as well as potentially be used by the performing dance team, and perhaps by AMTRAK or related organizations.
While there are an abundance of activities and displays which will be ongoing throughout the day-long event, the particular activity which is intended to be the primary focal point of this particular film making project is a dance performance, scheduled for 12:15 pm. In spite of the fact that the dance activity (including about 45 professional dancers) is scheduled 'on the event calendar', we expect it will catch most visitors by surprise, especially as the dancers activity will 'evolve from within the crowd', and attempt to encourage spectators to join in with the activity.
The dance group is “Le Grand Continental,” part of the well-known White Bird Dance Company. (They had a MAJOR write-up in the Oregonian a few weeks ago … a full front page of the A&E section.
Also performing will be the Mudtown Dixieland Jazz Band at 3:00 pm., (and we might try to catch a little video and sound of this performance too).
Among the many other exhibits and displays will be ... live Steam Locomotive #700, walk through tours of a caboose and one or more historic rail cars, model live steam rail exhibits, 2 diesel electric locomotives, and the Rose Festival Clown Corps! Expected are day long crowds of 6,000 to 10,000 visitors, based upon past attendance counts.
Please consider being a part of our 'Stumptown contribution to the cause' and join in with the fun ... And practice your video making skills at this free public event! Sign-up (so we know your coming to help) and show-up!
