Beach-side Pool-side “Hot August Nights” – Video Dojo Expo FIVE

SUMMER is UPON US…'s Video Dojo Expo FIVE

LearnMMD’s Video Dojo Expo FIVE

“Hot August Nights”


… AND SEE the Chosen Champions!

Bathing beauties and sheer summer gowns… beach-parties… surfers… dancing in the moonlight… romance under the stars… cold drinks and hot dreams… moon-palace vaporizing at sunrise.

Your video MUST, somehow, reflect the theme of Summertime, Summer Fun, Summer Vacation Activity, Summer Party, Celebration of Summer, Golden Sunlight, long shadows… pool party, beach party, camp-out, cook-out… you’ve gotta give me “Summer”… MAYBE it will be in the STAGE you select. An awesome summertime stage will help to set the mood.

I have already had to decline to accept a couple of MMD video entries because I could not see anything about our summertime theme in them. So… be sure to include the theme as you plan your Expo video entry.

Music ideas to set your ideas into motion…

Entries are due on JULY 21st, 2020…

Your video entry must be posted to YouTube before the stroke of midnight (Pacific Time) on the night of July 21st, 2020.

JUDGING will be by “Viewer’s Choice” in which the viewers will be asked to vote for their favorite video. VOTING will take place between July 22nd and July 29th, 2020… with winners announced on July 31st.

SIX WINNERS will be announced…

FIVE winners will be selected by the “Viewer’s Choice” and a SIXTH winner will be selected by the LearnMMD Team.

This is an Exposition…

No one entry will be “the winner”… our goal is to pick the top six entries which will then be entered into our HALL of CHAMPIONS!


Each of the six winners will be awarded a listing on our HALL of CHAMPIONS page with a link to their video and a link to their YouTube Channel… links that will be online, on display, there, for all eternity (or, for at least as long as is able to stay online)… and each winner will get a “The making of…” article on so they can describe their video and how they “made it happen!”
