I thought i would start a thread for people interested in fire staff juggling,i am really interested to see any videos of people throwing two or more staffs,and in particular anyone taking it in new direction.
I am currently working on routines with two and three staffs and contemplating a serious attempt at the four staff shower,

I didn't bother in the end, I broke my hand in 3 places a while ago and any bang causes serious discomfort now because it didn't heal properly (due to it being missed on first x-ray)
My current contact staff is heavier than the one I had at play wink I snapped that one on my head ubblol

I have light doubles though but still 135-140 long, I want 1m or 120's to juggle with so I'm pretty poor at the moment.

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

Ok. Let's make it happen.

Please send me a PM or email at antti[at]rubberheart.com if you want to be a part of this video.

REQUIRED: max 1 minute of staff juggling (1-4 or more(?)) Can be small routines/sequences or single tricks. I prefer the first one.

SEND IT TO: contact me and ask for my home address and send it on a minidv or a cd

OR: upload the file on your server for me to download

ABSOLUTE DEADLINE: 10TH OF FEBRUARY (if you can't make it then you won't make it)

EDITING: I'll do to editing unless I'm too busy for it and pass the honor to Imakokode. Or we might both do it to make two wicked versions of the same footage.

WILL BE RELEASED ON: The internet and I can put it on high-res on dvd and send it to the people involved.

IT WILL BE: Amazing.

Point your toes.

It can be purely technical. I'm not going outdoors either. If someone wants to use fire go ahead but make sure the tricks are visible.

EDITORS REQUEST: Shoot 10 seconds of close up posing.. few seconds of it will go in the intro of the vid... smile

i set this thread up and to be honest completly forgot about it,i am very happy to see so many familiar faces and a few new ones talking about staff juggling,althought the great seb himself seems to missing.

bentstix..is that the incredible toe twirler i spent time with at uber??

kooothor.....salut mon amis

as far as the video goes i am very up for it and think we should post it on some juggling sites as well as here
is you tube any good as a server antti????

For all my twirling and juggling with two or more i use 90cm staffs,this is good and bad,

good because they are less likely to collide in mid air and therefore easier to juggle

bad because the heat from these short staffs is very intense and therefore harder to juggle

another point i cant resist making,although i agree for the purpose of the video daylight shots will be much easier to watch and understand i believe that these tricks for me personally are only worthwhile from a performance point of view when i can deliver them with fire at night........................which as we all know is sooooooooooooooooooo much harder(especially when 8 wicks are involved!?!?!)

If somebody wants to go for fire on this one feel free. I'm sure everything will look amazing. We don't need to be able to understand and copy and paste everything. But I'll go for the classic circus hall setting with out fire. I guess the best one for the video would be if everyone would do both but let's do that for the sequel.

I got a 30 second sequence pretty much figured out already. I'm trying to get it clean now. Or atleast get all the tricks done in a row.. Or atleast find time to practice it.. Anybody else started working yet?? If you want to go for single tricks that is fine also.

Wish I could contribute but most of the above + a complete lack of originality are holding me back (not to mention a lack of video camera or ability) but I'm working on it, so maybe next time smile

oooh, oooh i did loads the day before yesterday and yesterday. now got heaps of tricks to enter, but not sure if i can get them into a routine, so it might just be individual tricks cut together frown

i'll try to get them filmed this week. antti, can you PM me your address...? and i've also got an interesting idea to give you.......................

Individual tricks are fine.. I'm going for more of a routine since I feel as individual tricks they're not that special. Get me off the contact staff please..! 98% of my training these days is contact.

Address on the way.

antti although i love your contact routine give yourself a shake and get back to juggfling
imho its the greatest crowd pleaser and the hardest to deliver due to the infinite process of drop elimination

rob,get some tricks sent to antti routines and fire will do for nthe next project(tim stokes the cats chin and throws him a fish)

Whahahah... Well I might but it's not happening soon. I'm concentrating on single staff contact for the next 5 months. Plus I have some problems with my shoulders and they can't take proper juggling sessions. Even though I practice with light staffs now. But I'm getting some inspiration back. And this project feels good. Let's see what happens.

I shot my part of the video today. It came out ok and since I'm a slacker I'm not doing it again wink. Nothing too mind blowing but some nice variations on stuff I've been doing earlier. And I also shot the 3 staff cascade we discussed earlier on this thread and I might put it on the vid if it fits in.

So we got two entrys already. Waiting for more. The sooner you can make it the better. And please let me know if you are making one and when.

Anybody want a teaser?

Oh yeah.. Please shoot on 4:3 ratio. And if you are taking many clips you could change the place of shooting or the background. Thanks.

And Oh yeah.. Try to find a background from where you can see the staffs on the video clearly. I mostly failed miserably on this one.
