Posted:well... I've finally gone and done it... videotaped myself spinning... I dunno why I didn't think about it, earlier... just used my mobile phone, and youtube took care of the rest.

anyway... it's me practising a newly learned antispin thingie... is something that I already knew how to do, but decided tonight to reverse it back and forth like at the beginning (and subsequently) of the vid; wanted to play with it, working into and out of it. think it works pretty well.

ummm... ye... I got confused a couple times there, but managed to work a few lil isolation/antispin things in there.

need to get a few more things on vid, cos it's really helpful to see stuff played back. not sure how to get the flowers in, cos there's not enough room under the patio cover to extend fully upwards.

oh yes... the vid:

Nice work my good man. The transisions need tidying up slightly as do the horizontal and vertical positions of the antispin weave.



But already I can see how you're formulating moves with the building blocks you've been given.



And you know that thing you do every so often? What's it called? Oh yes... smiling! biggrin biggrin biggrin



Keep doing that... smile



Happy playing dude... hug hug hug

Posted:Wow, that was with a cell-phone??

All that double-staff work looks incredibly complicated! But it looks good (to me, anyway!)

I definitely agree with you about playing back the video to watch your form. I'd do it if my digital camera didn't take such choppy video. If you go too fast it just looks like a series of unrelated frames, and it doesn't give you any way to fine-tune the video settings....

Posted:Dave, that's exactly what I told him...I love the little smiles ...spontaneous and unaffected...

He's really doing well with his spinning...I just can't wait to get back so that I can watch the real thing, again...

Its obviously because you aren't posting enough videos.

Major point here is that its probably too long... 10 mins is a HUUUUGE amount of time watching... I found myself skipping through it... you probably didnt need all the transitions in there, unless you were going to specifically teach them.

And trust me... I know how hard it can be to actually get a tutorial out there that is nice and succinct... especially one that has a discussion at the heart of it.

Good on you for putting something out there. Hope my criticism is reasonably well accepted...

Posted:ye, actually I concur... and in fact, I didn't realise it was anywhere near that long till I started editing it. is mostly due to the fact that I went into it without a plan. I just hit record and started rabbiting on... so my first piece of advice to myself and any fellow tutorial makers, is to treat the process much like you would a choreo; plan what you're going to do ahead of time, even if only loosely.

but ahh well... I'm pretty sure there'll be a doubles newbie or two out there, who'll put themselves through it. grin

and ye... I gotta get in front of a camera more... I'm a card-carrying member of procrastinator's anonymous.

Posted:I'm in the same boat. Since your technique on tutorial making seems to be quite similar to my own, perhaps you'd wanna check out the couple of ones I've made... stalls and cateyes. They're made with the same delivery, but I usually think of a few things I wanna say, bash em out and add anything I think of at the time. I really do hate referring people to my videos, but I feel the urge to if theres comparisons to be made. My delivery is far from perfect and you could learn from my mistakes as much as what I do correctly.

Posted:thanks, I'll check em out... I won't understand them, cos poi is evil and my brain (and more so, my body) rejects it. but it'll no doubt be instructive for the pedagogy.
