The video has gone viral since being featured on TMZ and posted on news websites around world. Much to Cloud’s surprise, it was even  tweeted by Norman Reedus, The Walking Dead star who plays Daryl Dixon in the hit TV show.

Oh my how the year has flown by — we’re nearly half way through! Here are last month’s three most popular posts on Ed & Ruby for those of you who missed them.

1. An update on Daniel Cloud Campos’ Kickstarted project. He asked the public to lend him a helping hand in creating a dream – to make a feature length film using music, song and dance.

2. Mario Kalpou shares the inspiration behind The Old Library’s award-nominated design. It’s an Italian diner in Cronulla, NSW that’s brimming with beachside chic.

3. We chat to Fabian Scaunich who is a Maestro Mosaicista (qualified mosaic artisan) — the only one in Australia! He shares his inspiration with us and takes us into the world of mosaic art.

UPDATE: Daniel Cloud Campos Kickstarter

Just last month we saw a short video posted on YouTube by Daniel ‘Cloud’ Campos, about his Kickstarter project, where he asked the public to lend him a helping hand in creating a dream – to make a feature length film using music, song and dance.

Daniel Campos, known to many as ‘B-Boy Cloud’, is a dancer and film maker, who has inspired many around the world with his moves and creativity. He has successfully made his way to the top as a dancer, winning competitions all over the globe, featuring in music videos, touring the world with Madonna and even making it to the big screen.

The winner of the World of Dance award for ‘Dancer of the Year’, took to YouTube and Kickstarter to ask fans to spare some coin to create a presentation that he could take to movie studios to pitch. It took just one day to be successful.

“In my opinion, doing what you don’t LOVE to do is a crime. It’s your life and whatever makes you happy is what you should be doing with it. Continue to do what you love and do it with all your heart and you will live an amazing life!” – Daniel Cloud Campos.

The $25,000 target was passed within 24 hours and today, with 10 days to go, the project is sitting at $51,000, and still rising. The project will be funded April 20, and see Cloud filming soon after.

Considering he was able to make such amazing work with only a tripod in his living room, we’re pumped to see what he’ll be able to do with $51,000. Cloud’s project can be found at Kickstarter.com.

Kickstarter is one of the world’s largest funding platforms for creative projects, where people can go and pledge dollars to projects from the worlds of film, art, music, technology and other creative visions.

UPDATE: Stay tuned folks, as we will be having chat with Cloud in the coming weeks! Like us on Facebook, Twitter or subscribe so you don’t miss out.
