OK. A few things. Crit/suggestions wanted.

My Crit:

Waving needs practice. Only been doing it a month or so.
The bridge is a bit sketchy. needs work on the coming down...
5/6 seconds: when I move the ball from one side to the other, not very pretty. too much of a curved line of travel.
The walk isolation = rushed.

And I miss the catch at the end!!

Enjoy: Ed plays with his balls... (no right click needed)

Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.

Hmmm
You wanted crit....

~ it's too short, and badly lit wink
~ On your waves, try and make the arms/hands start and stop at the same level, i.e. don't drop your arm down after it's waved (unless it's going down for a specific reason)
~ The bridge was oooooooh so close smile Personally I think a heavier ball would also make it look smoother as it would take out all the bouncing around over your fingers
~ You missed the catch at the end wink

I dunno... I've seen you CJ much better than that. Your isolations weren't 100% which I know you can do, it seemed much faster than your normal (natural?) speed, for a video wanting crit - there wasn't much to look at - about 6 moves? One bit of waving... Erm.

Suggestions?
Make a longer video - you won't have to rush moves and can just play as you do normally throwing in the new ideas as and when.

Gosh, this sounds harsh...

Er - I like your hair (?)

That's what I wanted!! Sorry there's not much of it, but there's not many clips of me doing contact that I feel comfortable sharing. That was just an 'unannounced' recording, that I thought looked cool.



Tips on the waving are most appreciated. biggrin Thankyou.



OK, heavier ball... I want one, but hard to come across. that was a solid stage ball, and acrylics and clubs don't go so well in my opinion...



The speed, Music affects that. I was more dancing than CJing... (in my head, anyway wink )



as for the bridge... well, it needs practice, but drunken clubbers don't realise that wink



But thanks... Ideas to work with biggrin Keep 'em coming smile

Hmmm... it has come to my attention that some people can't see this clip because of the streaming whatnot. Hmmm... How do I fix this?
