In this age of social media, museums need to use new tools to reach audiences and encourage museum goers. That is the idea behind our entry into the Museum Dance Off 4 competition. Plus, planning and filming our Museum Dance Off 4 video was a whole lot of fun!
Danielle, Glanmore’s Administrative and Collections Assistant explains why she wanted to participate in a Museum Dance video:
Dave, Glanmore’s Museum Technician shows us the “cat-cam” camera mount that he made and explains the idea behind the cat paws and feline POV features in the video.
and off course we have a few out-takes as well!
In case you missed it, here is our video:
Don’t forget to vote for our video on April 18th at www.whenyouworkatamuseum.com. There is no limit to the number of votes you can place to please have at it!!! We need your votes to win the Eastern Canada Division. If we are lucky enough to get through, the Canadian finals will take place on May 5 and the Thunderdome international championships will take place on May 8.
