Tell Your World [Short Vers.] (Dance Cover) Trivia

– I filmed this dance on October 20th.

– As the release for the extended edition of the first Hobbit movie is coming up, I’ve been psyching myself up by listening to the soundtrack repeatedly and scene-skipping through the theatrical version. All of this Hobbity goodness also seems to have inspired my outfit for this dance (if just a little bit). XD

– While we’re on the subjects of Middle Earth and my outfit, I’d also like to point out that I’m wearing a pendant that I bought from Weta Workshop’s website; it’s a dark stone with the White Tree of Gondor etched into it (and I love iiiiit)~. =D

– I’m sporting a rare braid here (though I rather like how it looked in this one, so I may wear my hair like that more often).

– Can I just say that I love those boots? They’re not quite as easy to dance in on carpet as the black ones I’ve been wearing in a lot of recent dances, but I’m not too upset about that because, well… I just love those boots. XD I’ve always wanted a pair of knee-high, brown boots. ^__^

– I had wanted to do a quick practice recording in my boots to make sure I could move properly while wearing them, and, since the song is only a minute long, I didn’t wear socks for the practice take. Unfortunately, I found some mistakes in my dancing, so I ended up doing more than one practice take in my boots and ended up getting a small blister on one toe. Don’t worry… I fixed it up with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Band-Aid. XDD

– I had to play an audio clip of me counting to three before the song started, because the dance starts right away, so I was always too early or too late on the first move. (^_^”)>

– The moves from around 0:28 to 0:31 and those from 0:50 to 0:51 were the most difficult parts of the dance for me. In the first of the aforementioned sections, I had a bit of trouble stepping on the correct foot (I always wanted to start stepping back on the right foot), and then I had trouble making sure I looked in the correct direction as I did the arm movements (notice how I looked down and to the left instead of just to the left orz). After fixing all that, I realized that I wasn’t turned the opposite heal in as I stepped back, so I had to fix that, too. For the second troublesome part, my arms and legs simply refused to cooperate and coordinate themselves properly. orz I hope it doesn’t look too terrible. orz

– Unfortunately, I had to do quite a few takes for this one. A few of them were because I was too close to the wall, so I ended up accidentally hitting it or I wasn’t able to step back at all. Other takes were ruined because I was so focused on doing one part correctly that I wasn’t thinking about a different move, so I would mess that one up. *sigh*

– I used the same editing technique from my “Heart Beats” dance cover in this dance; that is, I lowered the saturation (to 0.75) for the first half of the song, and then, as soon as the chorus started, I switched to a higher saturation (1.25) to give the video a pop of color. That being said, I rather like the muted look of the 75% saturation.

Thank you all very much for watching my videos and reading my posts~! I know they’re not always the most interesting, so I really appreciate your time~. ^__^
