The Best of Circusplanet 2005
« on: December 04, 2005, 12:04:52 am »
Hello everybody!

Circusplanet is a crew of 5 good friends which manage to take care of a Dutch/Belgian website  (www.circusplanet.net) about juggling, diabolo, devilstick, ballspinning, unicycle and balance. Each one has his own favourite prop. This year, we made a video together called 'The Best of Circusplanet 2005'.

I (Martijn) edited the video, with the help of my friend Pieter Jansen (aka g0t). We used the programm Sony Vegas 6, and compressed the avi file with the DivX 6 codec (Go to www.divx.com if you don't have the newest player yet).

So sit back, relax and enjoy our video! We'd love to read your comments, cause we put a lot of work in it!

loved it!  It was great!  The angles of the video camera was really cool and none of the stuff was repetitive.  Great choice of music too!  Hope my next vid is half as good XD

great video with impressive content, it looks great (using Divx...i could only love you more if it were xvid), and the music sucks :P

as always martijn, i have no idea how to say your name, but that doesn't stop me from being impressed. you're a great diabolist, i look forward to the next video already ;)

Well that was awesome. Really nice use of camera angles, locations, edits, music, tricks, everything! Just a great video.

Highlights for me included
-the opening credits (the black and white, with names. coool)
-the 2 6 ball flash shadows
-the reversed double ball spin clip (you had me confused at first [although only for about a second])
-Janklaas's stupid balance of everything put together
-i really liked how you timed the 'ready, steady, go!' after the credits. I think very few people would have had the idea, or patience, to do that.
-and strangly i really liked the empty swing at the end, that was genious.

As you can see, it appears my highlights were mainly editing things (which is good, because i think that is what makes a good video) but ofcourse i loved all the tricks aswell, very cool.

I dunno what more to say, just a brilliant vid.

I downloaded the high quality version and the DivX player just to view it, but for some reason no matter what I try it always goes back to the beginning at 8:27.  I tried restarting, dragging the bar past etc., but it never lets me get past.  Anyone know why?

But the bit i saw was great  :D

Thanks you guys! Really appreciated, great to read your comments (especially Norbi's :))

I found DivX 6 a bit better than XviD Matt, are you having trouble with DivX? It's 'Mart-ain' pronounced in English btw :P

No I'm sorry but I don't know. :( Maybe something went wrong while downloading. Feel free to download again, and see if it works. If not, try the mpg version...

Thanks again!

yeah norbi is right, there are bettere jugglers, of course, but it's one of my favourite vids now, due to the editing!!!

I know it's kinda sadistic, but never laughed so much as about that devilstick drop in the end :lol:  sry guy if you read this...

Well, previously (with DivX 5 versions at least) XviD was considered to have better compression... and best of all XviD is open source. But from what I've read, DivX 6 is a big step up, so it might very well be better than XviD right now, and as you've done, the most important part to getting good compression is trial and error. Open source still has a nice feeling to it though.

Anyway...

Great video! Behold the power of non-Windows Movie Maker editing!! Excellent editing (that must have taken ages to work out!), some quality video shots, along with some highly technical and creative juggling. A pleasure to watch!

LOL, no problem. They say that laughing is healthy. I guess you meant the backroll with the devilstick. That, in fact, is not healthy.  :P
