When life gets hard…you get jump roping.
This is my submission for the Amex Tribeca Film “My Movie Pitch” competition. You’re only allowed 60 seconds for your clip, but if I had more time I would have gone into the codes of the sport (right-footed vs goofy-foot jumpers, hand signs, and the code names we have for different jumps) ; and the struggles of being a jump roper that can’t get no appreciation.
Thanks to Nanowar for their creative commons music, and the artistofideas for the suggestion to submit, and Greg for his fabulous filming capabilities (even when I’m continually falling)
This is the first time I’ve ever done anything like this, but after he sent me the link, I thought, “why not?”
If you win the Amex Tribeca thing, your idea gets made into an ACTUAL VIDEO. So…..
I’d love any ideas you’d have to make this better (you actually have until May 25th to submit so teeeechnically I think I could re-submit).
In the meantime, you keep on jumpin
The rest of the day in the life videos are here ;)
Have a great weekend!
