Posted:Thanx Malcolm.Just thinking that i might send along some other twirls for consideration for the video, cause we did some twirling under the harbour bridge, so that is in the background and also the opera house and it looks kinda cool!

Posted:hello hello :-)Well, I'm fairly crippled, but after 5 solid hours of pissing around with a staff and 3 solid hours hunched over an editing suite I think I may have something resembling a tape. And now I realise we have an extra month......yay!
Non-Https Image Link
(although if I'd known earlier, I probably wouldn't be in so much pain right now). Anyways, cool, this means I can practise a bit more and get some better shots before I send my tape in. Malcom......got a question for ya. Is it okay to have multiple edits in the tape? Like, to pick out the most interesting moves and get rid of all the gunk inbetween? Or is this considered cheating? There are some moves which I can't get every time but would still like to share with everyone, so I've tried to get a good shot of each one and joined them all together (yay for free editing equipment at university!). Is this okay? Or should I send a long shot of me just jamming instead? Or as well? I don't want people to think I'm giving myself an unfair advantage by editing out all the boring stuff.....some of these moves I can only get maybe one out of ten times, but they do look quite funky when I do. Maybe I'll just send a jam tape to be entered in the comp and you can put some of my weirder tricks on the compilation video. Anyways, let me know. And good luck to everybody else with their filming.....I expect to be gobsmacked ;-)xaeda

Posted:Yeah I was wondering that too..I just tried to squeeze all my best stuff into one 4 min video because all I have for editing is a camcorder and a VCR, stop and play, so.. also I used a wicked song, and I didn't want to have it jumping all over the place.but I'd like to see your weird and wacky tricks xaeda, I can do most of the stuff your doing in the videos, allthough that full nelson staff thing still evades me.

Posted:Well Wildfire, You'll have some stiff competition and if you want to win you better go practice now. I have to practice as well or my friend Pozee's going to break me off. You better start learning some BTB wraps cause after watching my friend I think he'll break us both off. Good luck man, You'll need it going against POZEE. (I hope he comes back in time to take this comp, if not at least I have a better chance.)LOL, you think you're going to win, HAHAHA, you make me laugh.Eric

Posted:Wow, I did not get this many questions last time I did a video competition. You are all obviously thinking lots about it. Personally speaking I rate higher someone who can do all there stuff without needing any editing better than someone who has edits/cutouts every 5 seconds. Any mistakes will be edited out by the video production house for the compilation video as per usual.

Please, give the egos a rest and exercise some humility already!

Secondly, did you read what is looked at? Not only technicality but creativity and presentation, which means all the behind the back wraps in the world won't help you if you haven't a good presentation. In my opinion watching someone stand there and do nothing but techinical moves is damn boring. Style, pinache, creativity with the same ole moves is what I personally find to be the challenge and interesting to watch.*sigh*I know I am not going to win, but then I am submitting more for the video compilation than anything...at the urging of those like Cassandra and Dangerboy. If I gave in to what I want to do...I'd not be submitting anything at all.Best of luck to all....the humble and the not so humble.

He is also a great guy and a very good friend.And where is he I hear you say?Well if you were paying any attention to the posts on HOP then you would have noted that here we all fare welled Pozee and wished him the best of luck. http://www.homeofpoi.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/001373.htmlAnyway.....didn't

Non-Https Image Link
Well, I've changed my mind, I'm not gonna do the edit thing. I got up early today and filmed some more shots of me just jamming and they look a *hell* of a lot better.....my style shows a lot more whereas the edited tape just looks like dull, isolated moves. So yeah, I must have just been having an off day yesterday, cause I'm finding it a lot easier to run these moves together now. As for the tricks I can't do reliably.....I'll leave them out and enter them in the next competition when I have them flowing well
Non-Https Image Link
I think this is fairer to the majority who probably don't have access to editing gear, and it means we all get judged on how we actually spin most of the time, not the occasional outstanding flukes we all have now and then. Hopefully the others who do have editing gear will follow the same line of honesty, and nobody will have an unfair advantage. Cool :-)Anyways, how is everyone elses filming going? (save the egos here, guys, remember, it's just a game :-)...). This morning when I was filming in the botanic gardens opposite my house, I was unlucky enough to have a *giant* lawnmowing tractor drive behind me, spraying grass everywhere, in the middle of a great run of spinning! heh, it looks *soooo* funny on tape, but I'm not sending it in
Non-Https Image Link
heehee. I'm pretty happy with the tapes so far though, I think I look a bit more comfortable and relaxed than I did in the ones already online. I've managed to convince the students association to let me have the cam for one more night tomorrow, so I'll film some firefingers (just for interest, not for the competition) and attempt to get my staff vid looking as good as possible. I've found seeing myself on video so useful, especially with trying out new ideas.....I can freeze frame the exact points where I screw up and try to not make the same mistake next time. So yeah, I'm having fun. And ooohhhh my muscles are complaining ;-) I've gotten so out of shape over winter.Anyways, good luck to everyone that's entering, and Pele, I thoroughly agree about the ballooning egos here......we just don't need to see this kind of snarkyness here. I know I posted a big rant about it earlier, so I won't go into it again. But please guys.....it's not necessary. If people like your videos, they will *tell* you that you're good. You don't need to tell *us* you're good, we can decide for ourselves :-) It might do you some good to think about why it matters so much to you.......would your world fall apart if someone was better than you? Mine certainly won't :-)Have fun peoples, I look forward to your vids with bated breath

Posted:Hmmmm....never once did I call anyone stupid, nor would I. I did not single you out Myst. I understand fully what you have said, as well as everyone else, which is why I said I hoped you were joking...**I** am not that stupid. It does go back to taking things personally that are made as a wide ban statement. I am quite sure everyone who has said they are going to win is good, just as I am sure everyone who has said they are going to lose is also amazing. My point is that it is very tiresome to keep hearing "I am ganna win...I am ganna kick your ass" when in truth none of us has any full idea what the ones on the other side of the globe can do. It is presumptuous and moot. It is irritating, not only to me but also to others I have spoken privately with, when this is not meant to be a cut throat competition but more of a display of ones creativity in an art form and it has turned into some gladiator area bout. Just as everyone is welcome on this board, all are welcome to join this competition and enter for Circles of Light 2.....the "I'm ganna win" debates are deterring those with a less competitive nature, which is simply not right. This debate is not going to win anyone the competition, it is not going to earn you respect nor good standing in other spinners eyes.*sigh* Take it as you will and be pissed. I don't care. I am simply tired of the egotism abound.

Now...Xaeda, I too am thankful for the extra time. I did do filming this past weekend and never being happy enough with anything I do, I welcome the extra weeks. My show received much accolades but I am still not as happy with it as I could be. I am going out to refilm soon (and I am thankful that Prom has a camera he is willing to part with for several weeks!)My best to all.------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...http://www.pyromorph.com

Posted:quick question, not sure how to adress malcolm directly. i am having trouble copying my camcorder video to regular vhs, if all else fails would it be a waste of time to send the camcorder video in? not sure if he has the capability or if it is even possible without my video camera. just thought i would ask, maybe someone can help me with a schematic.
