We had the privilege recently to work with Art Linkletter on a documentary film about the modern resurgence of hula-hooping. Art stayed up on everything, and he certainly has made our film more lyrical.

We will miss you Art.
The film is in its final stages and it will be dedicated to Art Linkletter. Its release will be announced on www.thehoopinglife.com and facebook.com/thehoopinglife
