Posted:I got bored this afternoon so spent a couple of hours making a vid. Probably not the best showcase of my skills but who cares its about time I got something out there. Apologies for the quality, it was taken on my phone smile



Enjoy! Comments and critique welcomed *shudders*








New vid with new camera! - I shot this the morning after Strawberry Fair in my garden. Was in two minds as to whether to post it cos its a bit messy but I had fun making it so I thought what the hell. Hopefully I'll be able to get some more regular contributions up here now I have a decent camera so look out for more. Anyways here it is:








****New Vid****



Poi in the Punt 2



Some comedy moments in this one, and finally some footage of me with fire. No spoilers, just watch and enjoy. As always comments welcome.

Posted:Nice flick, you've got some cool spinning coming along there. Yeah your right about the quality though, the framerate really ruins the poi alittle. I'd love to see a vid of yours in decent quality though. Good work, keep them coming biggrin

Of course mate, I can burn the original footage to a CD for you or I can give you the tape, whichever is easier really. Quality on Guba is rubbish unfortunately, the original looks much better frown If anyone can host a higher quality version let me know biggrin

I figured you wanted the original footage to re-edit (maybe for the CCC promo vid?). I can upload to google video myself, will try to do it this evening. I had to cut out a lot of the fire footage to keep the length down, if you still want that I'll stick it on a CD and give it to you next week. I'm also thinking I might use some of the extra fire footage, together with some of whats in the PITP2 video to make a separate fire vid. Watch this space biggrin weavesmiley



Edit: Changed the above link to google vid smile

Posted:***NEW VID***



As promised I've re-edited some of the PITP2 fire footage, theres some stuff I didnt include before as well as I had to keep the length down. I don't have a fire vid "out there" at the moment (except some of the footage in PITP2) so I decided it was time to make one. Ive tried to be a bit more creative with the editing so let me know what you think. I borrowed some of the music I used in PITP2. Probably not the best fit with the style of spinning but I like the track so meh :P Anyway, as usual I hope you enjoy it, commets/critique welcome. I'm also hoping this one will prompt a few more people to check out the PITP2 video because it really is worth a watch wink



3:49 seconds play time. Simply entitled "With Fire".








Cheers

Posted:Wicked video there Tom! I very much liked the editing in it. Got some good points;
The guy on the back left at 1:10 really is an awsome spinner arn't they?! Who is it?
Also, the snakes at the beggining is a masterpiece!

;-)

Very very nice. smile

The only problem I have with the video is this:
If you are going to be swapping to another video clip in the video without using any effects it only works with fast paced music when it suddenly changes (I.E from a calm verse [put gental non-fire here] to a fast paced rock chorus [mental fire spinning here!]) See what I mean? As you didn't do that it looked a bit jerky when you swapped clips.

Posted:Hi Tom..

PITPunt.. fun fun.. sorry I couldn't make it smile

Mate, those ropes look silly! How rigid are they? you were basically stacking a stall on them and leaving it there- surely thats too rigid? They look like a nice weight (at least head to body/handle ratio wise) overall given the way they fly smile

Hope to see you before too long.. sorry its been this long already

Posted:Hi Chutters, didnt see this post before :P Yeah the ropes are a little silly, before I burnt them you could actually do perpetual stalls if you twisted them slightly, they are loosening up with use though and they are quite fun to play with. Apart from fuel weight they are perfectly balanced as they are identical at either end which makes them nice to throw.

Most of the footage I got with my monkey fists was too poor quality to use (theres a few seconds towards the end), mainly because they dont put out enough light for the auto focus (yes i know, should use manual) to work properly on the camera without supplemental light and both sets of snakes are a bit cumbersome to do a lot of stuff with. I'll try to get some decent footage with some "normal" poi soonish and do a vid that better represents what I can do.

You'll have to try to make it to PITP next year mate, bigger and better hopefully biggrin Hope to have a catch up before then though!
