Fashion Shows – Video Montage

It’s graduation season, and I had the opportunity to attend two end of the year fashion shows for some local tailoring schools. Sadly I don’t have a zoom lens, so am without quality photos to show you. Instead I haphazardly put together a couple of the video clips I shot to try to give you a taste of the events.

You’ll see a couple of walks down the runway, a poetry reading (I think, but couldn’t understand her very well), and some traditional singing and dancing. Be on the lookout for playback (lip-syncing) towards the end (and will likely be the subject of a future more detailed post).

Added bonus: listen for the Celine Dion at the end, and realize that the same song was on repeat for the whole 2 hour runway segment of the show, I kid you not.

    Was quite a unique experience even for me! My next project: to figure out how I can get the guy playing the calabash drums to put on weekly mini-concerts.
