Posted:has everyone seen the video in this thread posted by orbit?:
newest spinning craze!
it's almost certainly the most amusing spinning video i've seen.

i think it would be fun to remake the video, shot by shot, with people from hop. you could split it into shots and get various hoppers from all over the world to film a shot in a similar looking location from the same angle as it is in the original. then send it to someone (erm ... me) to edit it together.

perhaps even try to get malcolm and the moderators to participate.

obviously it would require each person to have the time to make a swing wing, and video themselves using it.

anyone else think this would be a good idea?

Posted:There are 25 opportunities for people in the video. One scene has 2 people in (the boat scene) and one has 4 people in (the second-to-last scene). Please note that I have included the elephant and the monkey.



So, shall we divide the video up into 21 scenes? I would do it now, and put timeframes and stuff up for each, but I should be working. I might do it later.

Posted:argh, just tried making a swing wing and it's slightly more difficult than i
thought.

anyways, it would be far too easy to just video people at a juggling
convention with one swing wing. it needs to be people from all over the
world, all with different swing wings. the randomer the better.

not worth splitting up the video into shots just yet (but cheers anyway
puresock) until we've seen if enough people are interested.

i think it should be in black and white, and the titles stolen straight from
the video. anyone else got any other suggestions?

Posted:How could people not be interested, 2bags? They'll jump at the chance, I'm sure.

I can't decide whether the "classic" black-and-white approach is better than the "modernisation of the original" colour approach. Black and white would be a bit more true to the advert itself, and would allow title theft, so maybe that is the best way.

argh, just tried making a swing wing and it's slightly more difficult than i
thought.



In which way? smile It occurred to me that the hat part of the swing wing seems to be made out of some kind of dome, not unlike half a diabolo, or a football marker disc, which would already have a hole in the top for the "wing".

I'm wondering who will volunteer to be the kid swinging the wing while hanging upside from a tree branch...

Posted:I heard of an idea of a poi vid where a poi is thrown out of the shot and passed to the next person in the next shot do a funky move then pass on , if that makes sense. The only prob is I cant catch a poi.

Is it the Truth?
Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?

frodo are on the case. the thread was more to see if people
thought it was a good idea or not. if there's enough interest
then we'll split it up and start assigning slots.
