S2DIO CITY and LXD – inspirations for “Dancing For Film”

S2DIO CITY and LXD (League of Exrtordinary Dancers) is a web show produced by Jon M. Chu http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0160840/ ( Director of Step Up 2, Step up 3D, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, creator of The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers, The Secret of the Magic Gourd ). Besides being great, an inspiration for dance and film making, it also points out the ever growing interest in dancing as cinema / TV focal point. With the changing landscape of broadcast, web channels like YouTube, Vimeo, Hulu, and Yahoo are becoming target venues for major producers, directors, and actors. Tom Hanks is producing a animation series for exclusive viewing on Yahoo, actresses Jennifer Gardner and Virginia Madison are on a YouTube series. While not having the resources some of these folks have I think we will be able to create a very nice series through our own upcoming Dancing For Film class!
