Ok, so this is an idea ripped from contactjuggling.org - but could be fun to spice up some videos here and make people think outside the box...



With the joy of YouTube.com, anyone with access to a camera can pretty much put a vid online smile



So basically, the idea is a Theme or Challenge is given and then people have 2 weeks to get something along those lines online, it's quite interesting to see what different stuff comes up.



For example on CJ.org one word was "Travel" so your video could be spinning on a train, walking along somewhere, an entire routine based around the "Wheelchair" move (Dom's I believe) etc.

Or you could try and film an entire 2min single staff set WITHOUT letting go of the staff at all; no throws, no contact. Crazy I know...



Thoughts?

Yeah i might be up for that, not so keen on youtube but whatever needs to be done i guess.

Also i'm on dirty dialup so vids are a bit of a luxury at the mo'

any other takers?

If the first theme is, "spend 15 minutes getting the first thing you find on your hard drive to a server" then i'll do it smile

BTW, hello durbsssss smile sorry we never bumped into each other down under, currently in melbourne.

Cool Idea! biggrin

maybe a random word generator would help?

I think Durbs should choose the first one as he's posted this thread, maybe the maker of the best vid should get to choose the next word?

Nice one Durbs- I was going to suggest something similar but along the lines of every takes a piece of music and interprets it in their own way.. i came up with this whilst being very silly to the Shatner version of luck in the Sky with Diamonds. biggrin

that sounds like a darn cool thing to do... i have indeed got a camera, (well it's not mine...) but i can't capture anything of it because i have no software installed! yay! it's already taken me four weeks to do anything about it (and i still haven't) so i think for the 8th... well that's pushing it a bit... biggrin Nevertheless, great idea, bring it on...

You could make them like the early MCP ones where you turn it on line it up and them walk into the picture and do stuff. I guess that might make a few people happy at the close up Naturist bits. wink biggrin ubbrollsmile



Or find the first small child you see in a park/wood/ cave and ask them to film you, then you get interesting angles. ubblol Offer them body pain in exchange.

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?

So pretend for a moment that the word was actually *drumroll*. This video is crap, but it's all I've got right now. Also, it is pretty easy to beat. wink

anyone got started on this yet?

i reckon the deadline should be extended to a week after falmouth so all that lovely countryside footage can be put to a good use (instead of having six general 'what we did at falmouth this time' videos).

but i'm just saying that cos tonight is the first time we'll have the opportunity to get some new footage and i'm not the fastest video editor around... tongue

Nah - that's cheating.

Well...maybe Wednesday, at the latest.

ooh, 15 minutes before the deadline...
A nature documentary on Poi
it's about 20 MB, but hey, it's on time! Anyway, please take into regard that I've been very busy this week and haven't had time to do things like:
a) learning lines
b) come up with a half decent script
c) sort out decent sound effects

anyway, for what it's worth, I hope you like it! smile
