Posted:Thought id post this here rather than the video forum, but for those of you that may ant to know what weve done with all that PLAY footage.

smile

******************************************************


Ok people listen up!

I know a lot of you enjoyed PLAY festival last year so much!, you all may have forgotten, but I havent, I have been sat watching all your faces for the last 6 months!

Admittedly the DVD has taken slightly longer to get out thank planned, but hey its been produced by a few spinners / jugglers and we all know how reliable and prompt they can be right!

The original plan for the DVD was a lot different to how the final result has turned out, this was our first attempt at doing something a little bit different, not just showing off all of the talents and skills which were there but trying to capture the vibe and relaxed fun atmosphere that the festival has.

The whole thing has been produced by myself and 2bags, we have spent a serious amount of hours playing with this lot over and over, about 15 full tapes I had to rip before we could even begin editing down it has been a massive project to take on considering neither of us had done anything like this before.

You may or may not know that the dvd is a 2 disc set containing about 3hrs worth of PLAY festivities! So here is what is on them:

Disc 1: The Festival

Play Days

This is the main feature on this disc and contains about 8 chapters, its a lot of random footage and photographs edited together to give you an idea of what went on over the 3 days. You will see many familiar faces and a huge variety of toys.

Workshops

This is a short video produced using all of the workshop footage shot, its a generalization of the workshops that were being taught that weekend to give newcomers a view of what they can have the chance of learning.

Games

The games were run on the Saturday afternoon and include many different challenges all of which can be seen in this little cut together.

Cooking up Play

Whilst setting up play festival we sat lots of cameras around the site capturing all of the work that went into its preparation, this will give you an idea of the works carried out, not to mention a few laughs!

Exeunt

This is a little video produced using footage from the final night there after everyone else had gone home, it involves masses amounts of pizza, some baby poi and some tough guy performances by 2bags and Rossco who decide to take on the 15ft fire.

Durbs Interviews

This is a section edited together of all of the interviews Durbs carried out after the show on Saturday evening, it contains fire spinning and lots of familiar faces, some of which in a very questionable state!

Playboy

This is a video interview with Dunc Huxley the main man behind PLAY Festival

Gallery

This is a 4minute scrolling gallery accompanied by the title tune and contains some of the pictures used in the videos and more!

Credits

This is a little video showing all the credits for disc 1 and its contents.

Hidden Bits Disc 2

The Pant Battle

Bed of Nails & 6 poi
Dev Kev Session

With the show disc you have a choice of how to navigat through it if you hit the play all function it will play the entire section of the show.

Skipping a chapter at and point will take you to the beginning of a routine or the beginning of Drors comparing before each act.

If you jus want to watch a certain act you can select it from the menu screen and it will play just that act before returning to the menu.

Other bits on disc 2

Performer contacts
Credits video for the entire festival
Sneaky peak at the upcoming Spherculism DVD.

Above all there is lots and lots to watch and find on this DVD and despite it not being quite what we had originally aimed for I think I can speak for all involved by saying we are happy with the end result and hope you are too.

Now that we have been through this whole learning process I think we can safely say that this years play will offer another dvd of a different kind, and hopefully before xmas too!



Please do post any comments you have as so much work and time has gone into this it would be nice to know what you all think,

Me personally, in this world of festivals and spinning ive never seen anything like it!

Take care and enjoy!

Posted:royalties! ubblol



all he done was stood there (and did a sick ass trick, but thats a minor detail) - he should be honoured!! wink



if anyones getting any form of money from this - im first in line ubbloco



Not that that is going to happen as thats the whole point of this dvd - to generate money for the festival and only the festival - the more you put in - the better you make the festival - it really is that simple smile

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Posted:I didn't collect my pre-paid DVD from the stall as I didn't want to leave it in my tent which was doubling up as a tandori oven. Plus I heard on the gtapevine that they didn't have the list for those who had or hadn't paid already so I refrained. But am I right in thinking that any that have been ordered but not collected will be posted out to us soon?

Posted:We had a list that was used for some collections but we think it got cleared away into the recycling by mistake one night. So then we took names of folks who wanted to collect presuming they were honest when saying they had pre-paid and built a new list from that. We tried to tell everyone they could still collect but I guess not everyone heard. Sorry!

All DVD's will be sent out early next week, please note that we're (I'm) mega busy sorting out the remains of play, the site wasn't clear until late wednesday afternoon and the rest of my time is dedicated to a family who've barely seen me for a month and then I have gig's and other things to do this weekend coming.

Hopefully by Monday they will all be in the post finding their way to you sometime really soon smile

If you haven't received a copy by Friday 30th June please let us know direct (ie by email or through the "contact us section" on www.playfestival.co.uk not where it might get lost in a forum not directly associated with PLAY Festival wink ) and we'll jump right on it.

I hope to have some normality in my life soon and plenty of time to dedicate to you lovelies to make sure you're all as happy as possible smile any problems, it's best to contact me direct as I don't check the HoP Forum or the PLAY Forum as regular as some of you guys do.


Let's relight this forum ubblove
