Posted:My 2 cents:

I loved watching this video. So many different and interesting ideas. I picked 5 favourites based on a)concept of video b) technique/flow c)costuming and background d)sticking to one prop - for some reason the videos that always resonate with me are when only one prop is used instead of jumping between differeint ones (eg staff to poi to staff etc)


Fave 5 (n no particular order):

Everyone is Happy - I'm not even a staff spinner and I loved this video. I thought the setting was great and I loved how the spinning went with the music. The whole concept of the video was fun. Really it was over to quickly for me!

Loooop - I've enjoyed watching some of your other videos aswell. You guys have a great style and flow together. The way this one was shot and with the music it was almost like I was watching a tango between 3 people.

M32.2 - Very cool video. It was very well thought out and I loved seeing two people spin in suits grin You guys had some moments of perfect synchronicity - awesome. I loved the drawing editing thing too.

Encyclo-Poi-dia - I liked this video alot. Less from a performance aspect and more from a learning aspect. I loved hearing your ideas and visions for poi. Shooting in such a dynamic space aswell I felt really added to what you were saying. I will definetly be watching this one again to see what else I pick up on the second time.

Will Kim Jong-un Wear a Jumpsuit? - Obviously I love partner poi grin I thought you guys were great. You had a nice flow and nice technique and obviously ALOT of chemistry wink The only thing that makes me hesitate to put you here was the lack of costuming.


Honorable mentions:

Hilltop spin: absolutely the cutest beginning to a video ever!

Hisui: that lift at the begining was beautiful and I loved the attention to symmety in many of your shots.


Videos that had something special that jumped out at me:

Witches Sabbath - The scenes with the fans were just beautiful. I wish I could've been there to watch you make this video.

MCP - the section where you mimicked what you did with the small staff with the big staffs was really cool. As was the shot from overhead of you doing that matrix type move.


Anyways that is just my opinion and really I thought everyone did a great job and I will definetly be watching a few again to dissect some trix.
