PAO 2018 Worldwide video audition
« on: December 27, 2017, 02:51:20 pm »
Hi all

As you may know there was a video audition for PAO Diabolo Battle, and I think most of the videos are worth watching, one minute and a half so the videos are packed.

Here is a PLAYLIST with all the videos
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5vEh99Gs3iciItHOYkIGDDx9WH-pzID5


Here are the final results for the overseas players, meaning the non-Taiwanese, from Europe Alexis and Henri are selected. I was anyway going to Taiwan in those dates, that is why I applied, with terrible results. I will take another try in the last chance battle. As I understand it is a battle that happens in the place, and it allows to enter PAO if you defeat the other players. If this was a Disney movie, I would have a lot of chances with this unfavorable set-up. Obviously for me the goal is to make a round or 2, even qualifying to PAO is rather impossible.



Alexis


and Henri


(there was a controversy because in the rules the videos were not suppsed to be edited, but the rules were not clear, so in the end edited videos were also accepted)

apart from people from Asia Aaro also took part


and me, the previous to last classified :)

I am obviously biased, but i do have some thoughts about this process.

It seems that the technical level of diabolo juggling was not a big factor, a bit bigger from judges compared to votes, but still.
I guess this goes along with the battle format, there seems to be demand for flashy moves combined with dancelike movement, and even though I understood the clip was supposed to be one shot, there was editing from some contestants. How they are going to edit their live show remains to be seen  :-D

Thanks for reporting Wis, and hope to see you again soon!

Hi, my friend is on that list. What do the red highlights mean and how do I know if he got accepted or not? Thanks.
Working my way up!

I am not sure. I can tell you that Henri is finally not attending. I will ask Dada, the organizer if he can help you. What is the name of your friend?

Dada says that red means finalist, and that Henri is change in the final for HAU WOEI LIN

@Aaro: After this process I have discovered that my concept of originality differs wildly from the one that the judges have, so I have little chances there. I trust my criteria, though :)

This may be a Disney movie, because after having problems with the plane, I arrived 1 day later than I planned and I went from the airport in Taipei directly to the battle, mega tired, and after three battles, I'm undefeated, with luck, and I will be tomorrow in the finals. I hope this will encourage you skilled guys that think this is impossible.
Watch me tomorrow losing with style, or making the biggest miracle since The Simpsons were created.
Yes, I'm the oldest in the competition, and it tastes so sweet.
And I did all this with a pink Flamingo on stage #class

Tim from Malaysia won!!  final against Alexis, I lost in the first battle, but it was amazing, and apparently Taiwan people liked it a lot.

Congratulations to Tim, Alexis, and all the other players. Europeans, Americans, feel invited for next year!
