Enrich1

Some changes are subtle, with Enrich simply adjusting the size or arrangement of the building, while adhering to basic architectural constraints. Others are absolutely mind-bending!

Video of the Day: STOMP and Harlem Globetrotters Make Basketball Music

STOMP

This is so good! 8 STOMP performers teamed up with Globetrotter stars Bull Bullard, Cheese Chisholm, Firefly Fisher, and Handles Franklin in this fun collaboration directed by STOMP creators Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas. The final video is all one continuous take, and somehow it only took 7 tries to nail it despite all the ambulance sirens, car traffic, and school children that surrounded this outdoor basketball court in New York City. The video was filmed with a three-axis, gyroscopic-stabilized hand-held MoVI (I don’t really know what that means but I figured someone would ask about the camera setup). Watch below!
