Posted:I dug it, great music. I'm dead tired, though, so I'll have to give it a rewatch with a more critical eye. Very nice energy, though. Thumbs up overall.

Posted:I thought that was a good video wow

I'd like to say I thought it was a great video but... It was too damn dark to see what was going on.

I loved the music ( Celtophile here ) and the dancing that went with it at the beginning of the clip, the overall energy was great but by the time i got to the two minute mark I found myself starting to squint. By three minutes, I was starting to feel disappointed but I stuck it out to the end and simply watched the first two minutes over, and over and over.

I loving that Yuta influenced style.

I particularly liked that spiral wrap done down low. and those changes between the regular "performance planes" and the 90 degree plane bends into " planes edge on to the camera " were quite effective, thanks for that. wow

ETA...I really appreciated the variations in poi head speed.

Overall, I feel that if you re shot that video ( at the JFF ? ) you'd end up with a film that'll go down in poi history as a classic.

Cheers.

Please do, and come back and beat me up with some awesome constructive criticism =)

Thank you =) Your words make me a proud spinner. I also feel that the two first minutes is what really makes it shine.

Yeah, Yuta, friend and sensei, he's a major inspiration to us all I think.

Tried to change speed according to music. Nice to see that it's appriciated.

It's funny tho how, when i focus on one thing, i forget the other. Like I would like the video to be more varied in places. There is so much more I can do and should have done.

I havn't decided on the music piece for JFF yet, but I hope I will find something entertaining =)

Cheers to you as well my friend.

Also here is the long story why and everything is wrong with the video:

It was raining outside, only a little bit, you can't see it. The battery was dead so I had to drag a 25 meter cable outside, everyone who was supposed to help me film was busy so I had to make 6 burns until I got a good video shot from a good angle without the poi appearing far outside, so that's why I avoid jumping around with lots of energy like mad the entire song.. I became afraid of going outside and having to redo it again...

Posted:I think Stouts already covered most of the gripes I'd have... location could be a bit nicer, technique is clean...

I mean, the only thing that would have joyed me more would be lending more of your body to the movement at times, giving a bit of a lean into something, moving your head or arms on more of a curve... but then snapping very much back to the firm upright posture that looks great as well, just variation there... but thats just being as picky as I really can be just to churn out some constructive criticism.

I think I'd have to work pretty hard to squeeze out much more than that, I enjoyed it, plane changes were indeed nice.

Posted:Thank you, it's the small details, like the leaning stuff you mention and other things that shall definitely be worked on. ( actually in this particular video I'd say there is less lean and more funny jumping around ). But that's a matter of taste. =)

Heck yeah, I got permission to use this music from Jeff and Mychael Danna, the people who made it, for JFF. o_O

Awesome!

Posted:Oh yeah, I agree, but thats what I meant by "at times" you could slip in and out, contrasting them against one another... even if its just a lull in energy followed by a lean in into a leap and back into a nice rigid posture with the funny jumping...

Wow... this post seems to make no sense... do you actually understand what I'm gibbering about?

Actually It does to me. I know basically what your talking about. Hell why don't I just mix it all together and make a rigid posture why leaning and jumping around ? Haha!

Seriously dude, someday you'll have to tell me exactly what your on about, but until then I assume I have to vary my movement pattern more. =)

Posted:By leaning I tend to mean "following your poi"

The easiest example is doing a 5bt off to your side (Waistwrap, not btb waistwrap?) and as it comes from behind you to in front, lean forward as though you've got to pull the poi out from behind your back with the weight of your body... its a little dip...

You can do it to a lesser extent with a buzzsaw fountain or similar. Its a very different style from what you've got going and you're a whole lot better than I am, so I feel strange offering advice, but IMHO it'd probably help you out if you were more variant in your body movement so that it contrasts and makes the dancing aspect more apparent.

That should hopefully make more sense.

Posted:Hey Peter, those are a couple of great clips you've put up. Too bad about YouTube butchering the quality of the flow and tech one, it was kind of annoying to watch what would have been a fine piece of film making all messed up. Have you considered using Viemo, or Daily Motion ?

Wow !!!! on the performance one. Now that seriously covering a stage. Good to see that patented?? lol, stall on the back move again.

Still loving your style.

Posted:Haha, thanks for the continued support =) Keepin me spinnin & alive =)
Yeah, I have been told I do use the whole stage =).

my first draft of the show was supposed to be a bit ballet inspired with some moves, however I changed very late because I couldn't come up with some of the things I wanted to do.

Finally, the stall on the back I have variations that I want to get out there, but they are much more difficult to work out. Another thing I had to cut out from performance due to short time to practice it.

Spinning love

Posted:Really nice flow you got going there, Peter smile

On the Union square one, it's very sad that much of the effect got lost in the lighting conditions (always the problem with performance in public urban places - too much light) and the choice of music (too fast).

The one in the park I wonder about how the vid turned out... never seen YouTube behaving like that... what's the raw file you uploaded? because the resolution seems quite good. is it an .mov?

Never experienced that with .wmv or .avi's (so far)...

Overall I like it smile

Keep shining


the best smiles are the ones you lead to wink

Thank you so much for your kind words =). While I also think the music is very fast, I do, very much enjoy challenging myself as to what kind of music, speed, tempo & rhythm that I can play with. And yeah, to bad about the lighting smirk

I would guess I actually uploaded an AVI, however I honestly have no idea at this moment. The problem is mostly trying to compose a very heavy HD format (AVCHD) on my computer(which is a laptop). I'm not sure why it happens but whenever there was vertical movement it would slow down the conversion and it was very difficult to work with.

Youtube only helped butcher it a tiny bit, the rest I fear is my laptop.

I do try to keep myself up to date and preferably beyond, haha, however I seriously lack in some departments, like tangles & throws and such. Please do watch more of the youtube video collection, I imagine there are lots there you may enjoy =)

Spin well 81LL! And than you =)

Posted:That could have been a nice video...if I could have seen what was going on. I tried lighting you up by shining a large, powerful flashlight on my monitor but all that did was turn you into a ball of light that appeared to be spinning.

I dunno, maybe I need a new monitor, but it was state of the art when I bought it in 1984 and I'm kind of attached to the monochrome green.

But from what I could see...lookin' good my friend
