Long Time Lurker Posts Practice Video
« on: March 27, 2015, 06:33:38 pm »
Hello, everyone!

My name is Odhran (Or - An) and I'm from Dublin, Ireland.

I've been lurking on this forum for a looong time, but today I decided enough was enough!

So, here's a few ideas I've been working on lately.
 

Tricks and editing are sloppy as all hell, but whatever... I'm very lazy.

I'd welcome any and all feedback, good or bad.

Peace! :)

Arjan

Hey Odhran, thanks for putting out your work here and sharing it with us. For me the highlight of this video was the very first trick, that also repeats at 3:01. What a beautiful and simple combination of basic elements, and I love how you have put them together in that trick. Well done!

Wow, thanks a lot, Arjan! Your work has definitely been a big influence for me.
I really aspire to build a style as smooth and polished as yours someday!

Very nice combinations. It seems to me that we like to play in a very similar way :) That last trick was lucky ;) 2:18-3:05 is a good time of nice diaboloing. The slight down is that because of the camera or maybe the editing is a bit hard to see the string a bit too often. Got a proposal for you, try combining what you do at 2:08, mixed with what I do in this video at 3:56, for me it's fun :) https://youtu.be/f1TPnpOTGpc?t=3m56s

Nice tricks, style and filming, I enjoyed it. I haven't been doing diabolo much recently, though I have been doing a lot of ball juggling.
Sorry for my awful posts years ago. I was even more anal and un-self-aware than i am now.
