DancingFlea - The Ukulele Craze will be an exploratory documentary. We will
follow along as our host travels across two continents to interview the
young ukulele players inspiring this project. We will interview
Pocketfox and Orla Gartland, two staples of the YouTube ukulele scene
and we will also follow Honoka and Azita, two girls competing in the
International Ukulele Festival which has been held in Hawaii for the
past forty-five years. We will look for the motivating factors behind
these young musicians love of the ukulele and the different means which
they use to express this to the world.Locations for this film are
projected to be: England- Home of the Ukulele Orchestra of the United
Kingdom. Greenville, South Carolina- Locale of the high school contest
California- Home of the Uke Shop. Hawaii- Home of the International
Ukulele Festival, the largest and most prestigious festival of its kind
in the world.

Our
first trip takes us on a journey to California where we plan to film
the Uke action taking place in several locations. We will be on the
road talking to people in several cities from Atlanta to LA starting
June 11, 2016. We will post stories here, on the facebook page at www.facebook.com/ukefilm, and Instagram at www.instagram.com/dancingflea along the way!

Possibly a trip to England for a very special spin on things!

The
Impact!Empowering Kids through Music. This Documentary can have a big
impact on things. Bringing attention to this movement will get more
people into playing. It will bring together people of all ages to
empower themselves as individuals and as a group. It will also help in
getting kids into playing an instrument that they can actually afford
and enjoy for the rest of their lives. So many benefits to the
community! I think we all can agree that music benefits everyone. It
builds confidence like nothing else can. With your help, we can make a
huge impact. We
are proud to be partnered with VH1 Save the Music. There are several
