While you may be familiar with her early web series highlighting the dating misadventures of a lovelorn New Yorker, an online show with a “Washington Outsider” talking politics, or her appearance at the first CNN/YouTube Debate, Matthew’s projects that seem to resonate the most (at least with me) are the ones where the greater online community is intimately involved.
After the success of her New Year’s Eve Project Midnight (where Matthews asked anyone and everyone to send in photos from the exact moment they rung in the new year and then compiled the shots to the tune of a nostalgia-inducing Ben Folds number), Matthews is asking for your help in giving the internet a big round of applause.
A storytelling device relegated to the cliched climax of teen movies, the slow dramatic clap seems like the perfect project for the internet to endorse. Help Matthews to create the biggest and bestest collaborative clap ever by uploading your rendition of the slow dramatic clap by Friday, May 1.
Send Matthews a link to your video or post it in the comments here to be included in the exuberance.
