Posted:Nice. I think you've definitely got enough of a technical repertoire to perform with, and it's pretty clean, too. It's tough to critique movement indoors, since you can't get much room, but I think the only thing that I didn't like was that you were kind of glued to one spot. But in general I think you're learning good stuff that will lend itself to moving freely.

Posted:Great flow, but since you're not outside and what you would normally be doing, I can't really critique much. But there are some things that you just repeat too much. That's just something I had to actively take notice of and practice not repeating things. Although I still do it at times. It's an ongoing battle for everyone I would believe, just hoping you'd take notice of it smile

The only luck is bad luck.

Shut up before I stall my poi up your ass grin

Posted:Looks like you have a higher ceiling than myself, confined areas make things a touch tricky. With the light level in your video it would help for you to turn on your LEDs, then we see the poi better and get to see you. yes

decide to use the glowsticks after all. i tryed to have a good flow in the video and keep it simple so it looked good. but i think i made it a bit to repetitive.

Posted:Next time keep the lights on, some dim light and LEDs allow us to see your body and the LED help enhance the poi. smile

Posted:That was really good and the best footage for lighting and screen shot you have so far! smile

When posting videos (I have to self record too) setting up the camera before hitting play is the part of filming I take the most care in so I know my marks and ensure the lighting is adjusted. It helps a lot setting up where to place yourself in the shot and equating the marks to where you appear on the screen. yes

Enough of the com-tech jibberish, you did it well with this video and remember to take the same care in future ones because you did a good job spinning and self filming! clap
