Approximately two weeks ago we set out on an experiment to crowdsource a video.  We asked our audience (that's you) to send in ideas to explore for our Leadel Hanukka video.

It’s important to understand a bit about the process of creating a video.  Making videos requires great amounts of preparation and editing clips together so they look "natural” (i.e. unedited) which takes hours upon hours of work and energy.  Hence, jumping in the water and letting the tides of the crowd navigate like we did was quite a different approach; one that led to a very different result.

Lights, Camera, Action! Direct Leadel's next video

Thus, here it is, "a mesh" of your comments and insights to Hanukka.

As we received so many different “bits” of media, we used a Prezi to combine them. So, just lay back and follow the path with the arrows; and it's best viewing in “full screen” mode.

As always, if you have any comments, please email us and we will start collecting ideas for next years Hanukah’s project! is a Jewish New Media Hub/Lab dedicated to widening and deepening The Jewish conversation using New Media.
