Posted:This year's already looking supa sweet for spinning vid's (possibly the best year ever!) and here's another one which is gonna be a bit special. Matt's been slaving away in NZ for the last 6 months editing the Spherculism DVD together an I've been itching to get me hands on it ever since i first saw some of the raw footage! It's got some of the slickest and loveliest spinners I've met in it, a lush sound track, some really creative visuals, spinning from Brighton, Bristol Juggling Convention, UberOz and Uberpoi, a mess up's section and some cool spinning based VJ. Since I've seen a few of the completed sections I'm literaly drrooooling over it... tongue



Anyway here's a (very) short taster Matt's put up on Spherculism. Check out the videos section of the forum for more info...

Posted:Oh Yeah, PAL or NTSC?

The whole film is made as NTSC, cos of the higher frame rate to catch fast moving poi.

UK, OZ and NZ are all PAL
USA is NTSC

I was going to release PAL first but i think most people can play NTSC and PAL.

Any thoughts?
Anyone not able to view NTSC dvds?

Posted:Hey olive, that's funny. I thought your name was olivier masson. But one of the band members is called oliver mason so i wasn't sure.

Anyhoo, glad noone else replied to this as i've just got a load of changes from the band. aahhrhrh.

anyhoo. It's taking ages to finalise, but i figure you guys won't mind a few extra days for perfection.

The quality of the whole thing is top notch. It's been really hard juggling doing the editing, production, graphics and all the monkey work (spell checking etc) But it's very very very nearly done.

You'll love it, i promise.

i've got aboslute faith in that... matt'ss graphic skills are second to none and the level of spinning on display is stratospheric, even if the footage is all a year old now... this is going to be a mind blowing good package! still can't wait... wink

Posted:Hahaa, chutney keeping me inline again..

thanks chris..

Moved house this week. Got a lush new flat in melbourne, I expect to totally finish the dvd today/tomorrow. I've said to malcolm he can expect delivery on the 31st july, which should be just about right.

Big projects like this take forever to finish. So many loose ends to tie up. And even a minor change can mean as much as 3 hours rendering time. During which i can't do anything else since my pc is buggered....

Anyhoo.

Back off home,

ITS DONE, FINISHED, FINITO!!!!!!

I have 100 copies eagerly waiting to be sent to malcolm in the morning.

Those copies are probably gonna move pretty fast so you might wanna get your order in pretty quick.

Everyone in the dvd gets a copy free from me. That's about 50 people tho so you will have to be patient. Or you could just buy a copy, then i'll send you one and you'll have 2, yay, that's twice as nice.

Not too sure on the progress of the new site. I'll be online again soon (dirty dial up) and i've now got oodles of time to devote to the site (sorry for my lack of webby stuff lately but i've been hella busy, the dvd is the best thing i have ever produced and has been my full time job for past 6 months)

Anyways, gotta go eat, the dvd could be in your hands within 2 weeks.

Big Love,

matt

Posted:Sent the order off to malcolm this morning, so should arive in 5-7 days and am emailing him the graphics right now. I'd show you all the pics but i'm in a web cafe and can't upload to my server frown

The finished product looks very very cool. The hardest bit was trying to describe the film on the back without sounding too w@nky It's a prettty unique thing tho. The soundtrack is excellent, mainly bad science from brighton. 20 tracks, 95 mins long. Some tracks are real slow and demonstrate how to do poi and staff things, some tracks are fast and agresive, some are simple edits, others are ferociously complex. Some have no effects others have oodles of effects.

Poi, staff, diabolo are the main toys, then there's devilsticks, fire hoop and some wicked club juggling from mad mark.

Wanted to not focus too much on poi and staff.

It' sinteresting how it turned out cos no one is spinning FOR the camera, it's more fly-on-the-wall style, lots of people playing. I guess it's really a road trip documentary with no words, if that makes sense. Like a view into what we all do in our spare time.

The best thing i can say about it is that i've been listening to the music and watching the films over and over and over again for 6 months solid and there is only 1 track that i tend to skip. smile So you'll be able to watch it over and over again.

For those of you that remember my Moments Of Truth video from a couple years ago....you're in for a treat cos the whole 95 minutes is more meticulously edited and more skilfully crafted than that video.

The style of each track is dictated by the audio. I restricted myself in various ways on each track so each one ha sit's own feeling. I can't wait for you all to see it.

People in the dvd will get a copy once i burn a big run (which shouldn't be too long) sorry about this but i'm totally skint at the moment and sending out 50 dvd's all round the world is gonna be quite spendy (however i'm sure we can come to some arrangement, pm me)

I'm so totally stoked about finishing. I almost don't know what to do with myself.

The next film i'd like to be more performance based. What would be great is if Te Pooka, Flame Oz, Burnt Toast, Solar, etc etc want to professionally film performances, get permission to use the audio and so on. Then i'll edit together a load of promo videos for the performers to use and make them into a dvd.... just a thought

Or a group of my favourite spinners could all fly to a paradise location for a month, film and edit the whole thing and release it......

But that's not gonna be right away. Got a few other projects to fit in before then.

Anyways,

big love, can't wait to hear what you all think of the film
