Posted: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?

Posted:how about submitting it to a poll in social chat? then take the results at the end of the day? and NO voting for your own vid wink

failing that, everyone who entered could make a suggestion and the best one gets picked?

just trying to work out the fairest way of doing it: and isn't coleman supposed to be posting a vid sometime? wink

ubblol spinners and decision making: it's like herding cats wink

Posted:i think there should be a poll for the choice of word...

as for the videos, i didn't realise the point was to win, just to do it within a week... shrug but i do think they should get increasingly harder, nature's fairly easy when you think about it smile

...on the herding cats front, it's got to be easy when you're on a bloody big horse threatening to trample them all... or a dog... a giant dog.....!

Yup exactly, that's why I don't like the idea of a vote/poll.

As creator of the thread, I hereby claim total autocratic powers and create the rule that:
Whoever puts in the first, viable entry (not just a bodge job) gets to choose the next challenge

Notice that it's a challenge. It doesn't have to be a one-word theme - it can be "maximum of 20 seconds", make a video without spinning your prop, any kind of restriction or elaboration.

Or just a one-word theme.

It's all good.

Posted:Gayle> that figures! wink

ok then, I'm going to put the next challenge as


COMPOSITE


to be interpreted how you wish!


Strugz> you'd better get an entry together if we're going to have 'animals' as a theme wink (which I would quite like to see)

we have some lovely footage now but like i said, it didn't really suit the theme.

expect a new video in my thread sometime not very soon.

it has a smallboy in it (with fire) bounce2

and a bambam (with sticks) ubblove

and a me (with some cool pants) umm



official excuse section:

we're out every night this week

we're away for the weekend

i need to read some stuff

i need to take my computer to a shop next week so they give me a new one with a screen that won't burn my eyes.





this thread rocks biggrin

guy, your video is hilarious and fantastically inspired.

non - genius. do you have a fire version of those poi...? wink

nick - there's some badass spinning in that video. especially liked the gilligan section biggrin

durbs - that's some wicked footage and spinning. love your 'random' choice of the the first theme wink ubblol





am looking forward to more of these and i love the 'least slack person gets to choose next challenge' rule.

Posted:Thanks Cole! I'm now really looking forward to your vid!
Just make sure you get it done before I go to China! wink

Nick, thanks man! biggrin

I tried to think of a word that would give a few different potential interpretations, to keep things interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes out of it!

Posted:edit: the previous post never existed. (i'd turned the sound down)



soooo then... am i too late to vote>? for what's its worth:



Durbs - Nice vid. Very creative work from your nature troop, i especially liked the snake branches and various forms of juggling....

juggle

Non - Wicked idea.. the ultimate organic poi! ubblove And they're edible! I'm so impressed the actually worked you get my vote hands down... by the way, you could've ate the grass, it's ok you know... biggrin



Mr. Widd - I'm afraid you're automatically disqualifed not just for using one of the most appaling breaches of the basic rights of aural appreciation but a crap re-mix of it as well. eek Which is a shame cos with the sound off, the spinning was top notch, the locations and editing good, and the girl on her stilts looks like my girlfrends best mate. biggrin By the quality of your stalls, you're not mr chut in disguise are you? umm



Guy - Quality. Next time i want the script memorised though... and more creeping through bushes! ubblol



So I vote for *NOn* smile
