INSANE Domino Tricks Goes Insanely Viral!
After posting INSANE Domino Tricks! (a collaborative effort with Millionendollarboy, a domino artist in Germany) on Reddit.com it went viral within a few hours and garnered requests to post or re-post from numerous media outlets, news agencies, TV stations, publications, and celebrity Tweets throughout the world – too many to list. The video went completely viral with an astounding view count of over 9,000,000 in just the first week (it has now had over 21 million views) and was even featured on the front page of YouTube for several days.

22,000 Dominoes Goes Viral!
My video titled 22,000 Dominoes! (200,000 Subscriber Special) went viral a few days after it was uploaded! This is my personal record for the most dominoes setup at one time by myself. I built this in celebration of reaching 200,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel.

Live domino event at Vermont Art Museum
The Brattleboro Museum and Arts Center hosts an annual well-publicized domino toppling event. I was asked to be part of the team to build this year’s setup (30,000 dominoes) and used the 2014 Winter Olympics for the central theme; the event was broadcast live on the local CBS affiliate.

This was a collaboration of 6 domino builders and one of the biggest domino events in US history with a grand total of 45,000 dominoes. The theme of the event was Games, spanning all different types of games including old school gaming references, some sports projects, classic board games, and everything in between. Hevesh5 created the final edited video using raw video files from 6 cameras, plus previews, time lapses, and other extra footage. Then annotation and the soundtrack were added in. Hevesh5 created the trailer as a separate project. (7/2012)
