Posted:I would think it would be flippin awesome if we could start a collaboration video (like they do on glowsticking.com) here on the home of poi website.
Please let me know what you think about the idea and what you could do for the video. I know i can make some footage, but I'm no video editor. So I'm trying to find someone to edit the video, and alot of others to send make footage.
Get back to me and let me know what ideas you have! smile

Posted:Basically the spinners of the forum get footage of themselves spinning, and someone of the forum will volunteer to put the best clips from these videos, and edit them together in a bad ass way. And then we can post it on the forum for everyone to see! Its just something fun to do.

So it might be cool to start the 1st HoP video collab.

PS. I should of posted this in the video section. But meh.

Posted:If no one better than me volunteers, I'll be up for editing it (as well as filming myself and getting the word out around Israel)

General guidelines would be helpful-
1. Use a tripod if possible
2. Use a good camera
3. Video length limit - 2 mins (?)
4. Nice location, cool costume etc

Would be cool if a mod moved this to the video forum smile

Posted:I know just the location and just the costume... As for the camera, I have a small Sony high-def handheld (can be tripod mounted), but it doesn't really allow for manual adjustment; do you think that'd work out, or should I borrow a better camera? (I know when doing still photography I can never bring myself to use a non-SLR camera...)

Posted:Hey, great idea! A friend of mine just finished editing the diabolo collaboration video of diabolo.ca and it was a great success (http://juggling.tv/video/3386/diaboloca-collaboration-2009).

If there's enough enthusiasm we could probably pull off something like that with spinning.

Posted:Good idea, I'm in. Possible problems: Video formats: If said editor is working with a PC, and some spinners only have a mac. I have had troubles before trying to send friends raw video footage for this very reason. I'm sure the problem could be easily tackled though.
Also are we going to have a theme. I know GSC has like the Spinning in Nature Collab, Project Oldschool, etc... each one usually has a common theme. Not that we need one, just wondering.

Posted:I reckon that would be a good idea, maybe a few different videos at different levels, otherwise I could see it ending up with the same spinners over and over. As much as I do love watching people like Nick, Ronan, G, Durbs, Yuta, Jon, Tom Nevisoul etc etc and all the other mind blowing spinners on here spinning, I'm not sure that would really picture what HOP is about (if these guys are interested in also making videos).

If people are up for it, maybe a beginner/intermediate video, intermediate/a little advanced and an advanced video, covering all the different skill levels of HoP users instead of a COL kinda thing where only the best videos of the best spinners get shown?

Just a thought, but would be a nice chance for everyone on here who wants to be on it/them to have more chance of getting their faces seen.

Either way, I would be up for putting forward some footage of me spinning. Maybe a limitation on duration too? To save editors rummaging through hours worth of footage to find the best of all videos submitted.

Not so keen on this, only a handful of spinners I have met have been interested in dressing up for it... Personally, I would rather spin how I'm comfortable in normal clothes, instead of dressing like a giant fish (yes I have been asked too in the past ;))

Posted:Doubtful that I'll have anything to add to the video, but if this does get made I can mix the music for it. Will just need whoever is doing the editing to let me know the total length and I'll mix a few different tracks for you to choose from.

Posted:Well, the idea would not nessecarily be to be mind-blowingly good. Just to have something to show. Interesting is good though.

Going to guess around 30 minutes to start?

My vote is Nature + Urban. tongue2

But Urban, if I have to choose just one.

Eep, Feb 7. Had better set aside time...

EDIT: Also, does anyone have any tips on making small poi more camera-visible? I tested out my usual heads and they don't show up all that great.

Posted:At the end of each video we should all jump up with joy and throw our poi. Then the person editing can do like a big super fast roll of everyone jumping at the end. Followed by(with his permission of course) Ronan acting goofy at 2:20ish




Or something. haha =)
