There's always been talk about allowing longer video clips and other sections etc (well there's always talk about the should and should not's for COL! wink ) So we listen and learn and investigate possibilities. and now we can actually do something about it without breaking everyone's bank!

Double layer DVD printing technology is now sufficiently stable and cost effective that we will be able to produce a one disk COL DVD of extended duration for not much extra cost. This allows us to open up new categories and also provide the option for increased duration clips. So we have:
https://www.homeofpoi.com/articles/video_compilation.php

New category: CoL4Kids - for the under 13's. Not a competition, but a chance to show everyone what you can do and learn and improve. We hope this section will encourage the next generation of object manipulators.

Amended rule around duration - new maximum of 5 minutes. This is a reasonably arbitary number (any number would be arbitary), but we feel we need to put "a" limit and 5 mins is as good as anything as a starting point. We don't want to encourage looooong video clips just for the sake of filling up the time so the rule says something about a target average of 3 minutes per clip and tell us your reasons if you go above 3 mins.

We've been listening and thinking about the other suggestions for new sections, professionals/amateur, hoops/juggling/staff/poi etc... at this stage, like some have said, we don't see how these can be readily distinguished between and the lines will always be blurry, so we prefer to keep everyones options open by having the one "general" category until such a time as other sections become more obviously in need of seperation from a general category.

Your continued feedback is always welcome and will help shape the future. The Rules are not fixed in stone so please, kick this around and let's see if anything needs changing...

Oh, and in case you hadn't noticed before, I wrote a few pages about the history and philosophies of CoL into what I optimistically call an "e-book". There's some information gaps (even Malcolm's brain doesn't hold all the info wink !) so any feedback to complete and improve it would be appreciated. https://www.homeofpoi.com/articles/e-book_Circles-of-Light.pdf

so, whats the news....?


No story - straight to bed! Wait.... wrong home!

We almost have the list of acts on the DVD finished - almost. Hopefully next week we'll be able to advise the people on it to check their details are correct, but the general announcement won't be until later closer to the time the DVD will be available after printing.

Congratulations for all those that made it on to the final video.
Sorry to those that did not. It was a dificult choice as per all previous years. Once the DVD's arrive, hopefully in a few days, we can send out to the Judges for their final verdict of the TOP 3.

https://www.homeofpoi.com/col2008

It's a bit messy on that page and it is missing a lot of details but I did promise it would go up within 24 hours, alas the server broke today for 3 hours.
I was hoping to get time today to send out a mailing too, so this will now go out on Monday. Big hugs everyone and have a great weekend smile

Regards

Malcolm
PS. I hope to get a preview up soon.

Infact - that's a kick-ass line-up for a video.

Sage, MCP, Noel, Clurrrrrrrrr, Sandy, FireGroove, Yuta, Bluecat - all on one DVD (Possibly others, but not all performers are listed/known to me)

Isn't it amazing what a little monetary incentive can do wink

Oh man! Chris Bailey (Rovo) should be on there too with shilly shally fire arts... nice to see some of durbs spinning in headphones... good title dude!

Shame Yuta and Ronan's video isn't on there, cos it's AWESOME! Not that I've seen it or...er... yeah anyway.

I could fill in some more details for mine, but I'll wait for someone to email me, cos I don't know if you have decided if the music is 'free' enough.

Anyone coming to this thread can watch the bit that didn't make it! Yays! https://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2880288393397280495&hl=en
