Loved the Michael Moschen-like rolling diabolo's bit at the end.

Contact diabolo seems to be getting very popular these days.

Perfect! As always, I'm impressed of you three - Arjan and Ceri-Anne as cool diabolists and Tijn as one of the greatest editors. (btw did Arjyn and Ceri-Anne edit, too?)

@Ceri-Anne - hey, finally some suicide and suicide stuff  :wink: great!

@Arjan - So amazing contact stuff - will try it maybe :P

Looking forward to see you three again!

JACK JOHNSON IS GREAT!!!

Another great video where as much thought has gone into the presentation as to the tricks. A winner - thanks guys!

i'm not a fan of jack johnson, coldplay, or credits that take up 1/4 of any production, but still, great video.

i liked the L to R passing, the good camera angles, smooth editing, and Arjan's smooth innovative style. cute finesses too! i'm gonna have to watch this one a few more times ;)

Yeah. Super nice video. In addition to the smooth diaboloing. I really Enjoyed everything else, cameraangles, backgrounds and editing. Very nice result  :shock: The part where you are sitting under the tree are really great.

Ps. Nice Idea to keep pink diabolos through the whole video.

Take note all future video producers, how you film the tricks is as important as the trick itself.  That was a wonderful production with some great ideas.

Contact diabolo is definitely on the up and up, something I'd like to play more with, might put down the Circuses and fiddle around with my Finesses a bit.  And Ceri-Anne, excellent integral around the leg, fabulous trick.

Dutch team at it again!  Man, feel like such a waster sitting here.  If you guys handle your school-life and work-life in with all of this playtime, must be a busy schedule.  Thumbs up!

WOw, great video! It had a very relaxed mood to it, and there were some great tricks in there. Man, that contact diabolo stuff is wierd, but cool. Looked like you guys had lots of fun filming and stuff too.

my mom listens to Jack Johnson :P

it actually wasn't a big deal, it went with the video, so it made sense. if it was just diaboloing randomly against that song, i would've ripped my head off. actually, it was so integrated, that i didn't notice the music standing out.

You guys just keep on raising that bar  =D>

thats the slickest production (I say production as its much more than a mere video) that I've seen in ANY juggling prop vid.

Inovative tricks very well executed, thought out and shot (loved the different camera angles on the same trick) with post production to match.

Kept my glued attention right to the very last second of the credits.

Very Very well done.

Fabulous, a true source of inspiration.
Even better than 3 days, 4 nights and 7 Diabolos, and that says quite alot.

Such a great, creative video.
After some initial scepticism on my part when I first encountered contact diabolo, it is really growing on me recently. Buisson, Cedric and now this video show that it is definitely a style to look out for. I really enjoyed the section with three diabolo traps.
Other highlights were the under the leg integral, the duicide to mini-genocide thing at 0.45 and the whole section starting at 1.42. Excellent work, guys.

Arjan, I thought you said that you didn't like playing with slack. That slack-cradle has a really nice style, maybe you should change your mind.
Martijn, great job! If this was the project that delayed the Collabaration video it was definitely well worth it! Can't wait to see how that turns out.

Now I wish I wasn't stuck at work when it is sunny outside.

This is one of those video's I will be watching over and over again, just because of the feeling it projects (I hope this is not to improper english).

Oh yeah, the diaboloing in the video was totally freaking awsome too...:)

Really nice vid.

I appreciate very much the fact that you didn't put every single trick you know in the video, but just chose the most relevant ones. I'm a bit tired of seeing 10mn vid with a hundred boring combos. Your video is the opposite of that, short and pleasant to watch.

I feel here and there the influence of 9-1, is this just an idea ?

as always great editing, presentation & the tricks that were in it
Still I didnt really like the video that much, first, I dont like the first song and hate the second (still it fits perfectly in the video :roll: ) and also I'm not really into the contact stuff, some are nice but it was too much for me. Its a well made video but I doubt I will ever like it.
