just wanted to say a huge thanks to everyone at uberoz. i was definitely not a poi twirler before uberoz (because almost all things i could do with club swinging), but now i cant put them down. i especially want to thank rob. you truly are an inspiration to me, in all areas of object manipulation, and have turned me into a poi nerd. i look forward to the next time our paths cross

mark

docta; there sure will be. when and where as yet tbc, after some loooong thinking(and some sleep: currently back in london at 5am on the internet redface damn that jetlag....)

Dunno! We certainly made enough fuss about it. I nearly got the Hassler of the Year award for handing out flyers and stuff! Come up and introduce yourself at Moonfest or Juggle Jam and we'll make sure you get Personally Hassled next time! I'm easy to spot... that's me in the photo (p15) in the front with the bucket! biggrin

**BUMP**



Well I finally have everything sorted for the uberOz fire video i'm making.



All the footage is captured, Kyle and elliott have made a badass tune.



I've clipped 90 minutes of fire footage (from outside the hall on the saturday and poolside at the party)



I just need permissions from people to use their footage as this is going on the Spercular Vision dvd.



So if you are one of these people or know their hop name then pm me please.



If i get everyones email i can just bulk mail you all.



(I'm not too hot on names so apologys if i get your name wrong)



Alice: who was spinning staff with kyle



Amanda: Double short fire staff



Ben-ja-min



Bill Bender



BurningDan



Another Dan i think: Firepoi, Long brown hair, 3/4 length jeans



Dentrassi



Dom



Kyle



Luke: YT i think?



Mark: the club juggler, fire and glow footage



Nick Woolsey: only a little footage of you frown



I think another guy called Matt spinnning fire staff on his back



Rob Bluecat



Ry



Troy





Rob i'll be able to get his footage to you at some point, it's about 15Gb tho so i'll have to figure a good way. I'll see what size it is if i compress it down to dvd quality.



Brings back very fond memories watching all this footage again. The level of skill at uberOz was breath taking. It's an increadibly hard task cutting this down to 9 mins, might have to overlay 2 people at once just to fit it all in.

Thanks for that.

I had my camera at confest but never got round to filming any fire, so it's probably someone else.

more editing to do, laters,,

Hey Matt
Yep, I give permission for my backyard to be used as a location wink
and the Dan with long hair you refer to is Dan Brookes, can be contacted through Kyle McLean.
Amanda and Matt are indeed from Three WOrlds on the GOld Coast.
The juggler Mark is Mark Douglas from Sydney. Matt I can PM you mobile numbers and email addresses for most of these people if you ask nicely. Or maybe i'll do it anyway when I get back from Kingston Green Fair.
Hugs

Ben you look marvelous, and i'm a great editor wink

Gabe, didn't wanna put you out whilst you're off on great adventures. But some contact details would be super sweet. Hope you're having a blast in london town. You really should head down to brighton on a sunny weekend, my home town will treat you well i'm sure.

Bill, i forgot you've got that footage. Had a lot of fun spinning at confest. I don't have that much footage of you i'm afraid, just 1 burn in gabes garden. But i'm sure we could come to some arrangements. I'll be back in melbourne on the 3rd july smile Easiest thing for me is to bring hard drives round and copy straight across. Then you can have whatever you like.

Right, must stop procrastinating, gotta finish the uberoz video (looking sweet as btw)

OOOOooo maybe just 1 more cup of tea wink
