Posted:right said fred. some videos for you:



25/9/05 - Orbit has very kindly uploaded all of these videos to a server from where they are downloadable. many thanks to him for doing so



26/05/06 - videos working again, thanks hyperlight and fni for uploading them onto servers this time hug



hug from oli and ros. right click and download to save them,



stix n sox - this is an old one, filmed back in march. features oli walking round a sock, a tree, and russel being silly (7:44, 52mb (for now..))



not a sock in sight - features 3 minutes of oli spinning fire, too fast. i wanted to not do any editing to this, but ended up editing out one bit where i got sketchy in a tangle, this ruins the flow a bit. this video uses the tried and tested formula, fire poi + trance = video, so dont expect anything original. (3:06, 8.4mb)



at the bottom of a cliff - oli spinning socks. if this looks a) messy b) out of control c)like the sketchyest poi ever, then thats because it is. theres some cool bits amongst the maddness though. my excuse for the general ragedness of it, is the wind wink. also some bits are out of focus, becuase when i started filming the sun was out but it promptly went in and it got a bit dark for autofocus. look out for floppy sock. i have one major criticism of this video (aside from it being messy) but im not going to tell you what it is because im not sure how obvious it is. things i learnt making this video: staying upright on pebbles is hard. anyway i hope you have as much fun watching this as i did making it. (8:36, 25mb) ubbloco



the taste of lyme - quick film featuring ninja dave (1:10, 3mb)



strange things happen - this was nearly 'zest of lyme' but daves too slack. this is apparently the first online film appearance of ros (fluffy naplam fairy), she spins poi (and sticks) properly and it rocks smile its quite long because choosing which bits you dont want is hard, so sorry about that. its got some nice views at funny angles in it too, next time the world wont look like its flowing off one side of the shot, i promise. cool (9:00, 24mb)



dinosaurs ate my circles - features a small white fluffy dinosaur and ros and oli doing some tricks with poi in the suuuunnnn biggrin. (8:13, 40mb) or smaller more compressed flash version - made very kindly by matt on www.spherculism.com.





sending signals to spaceships - the video that was then wasnt and now is. ros and oli flag down some passing aliens and teach them how to spin. if anyone knows the music please tell me.





remember: criticism is cool ubbrollsmile and its nice when the sun comes out sunny

'spaceships' is a seriously good video guys - be proud.

Posted:hiding in a cave I think. :-)



Oh, and I had not seen your "first" appearance yet, but now that I have.... wow ubblove. I've been wanting to see a video from you for a long time, you know... hug And now that I have, I must ask, "Where have YOU been hiding?!?!?" eek



I love the way you lead the poi/staff with your body, almost snakelike (belly dancer), very beautiful style, precise movement, graceful footwork like a martial artist or balarina or something. Awsome moves.



And oil's style complements yours very well, like yin and yang, bangin videos.

Posted:Beautiful video from both Oli and FNF. FNF especially love to see the improvement from video to video - you really seem to have focussed on body movement and precision - and it shows. Stunning to watch - To an extent your show reminded me a little bit of Sage's effort on COL2 (I think?) in terms of mixing up technical and rythmic flow. Keep up the good work smile It makes me want to pick up my poi and push for more precision - thanks for that!

Posted:hehe smile im so glad you all enjoyed the last video, thanks biggrin grouphug

my video camera is broken at the moment, but before it got broken i did a little bit of filming and on monday i put togther a little video, ive just been trying to upload it and i cant get spymac to work... confused so if anyone wants to host 36mb (big file because it didnt compress very well because it was windy and theres lots of moving trees i think...) of oli doing some pretty sketchy but fairly intertesing poi, let me know, or if anyone knows how to get spymac or any other free hosting service to work also thatd be cool smile
