Starting two diabolos on a loop
« on: November 07, 2006, 07:22:03 pm »
I've just started creating a 'two diabolos in a loop: different starts' video. I've put up a section as a taster here: http://www.jugglethis.net/filemgmt/singlefile.php?lid=813
Would people want the format to be like this for the rest of the video? More camera angles? Slow motion?
Feedback appreciated.

Hmm, looks like a lot of fun, i've not attempted even one diabolo in a loop, but this tutorial seems very good anyway!
Not sure how many times my diabolos have been in the pond

Hmmm. good tutorial format, explains it perfectly.

However with different tricks different ways may be easier to understand, this trick seems rather simple, (not neccesarily easy, but simple to do) whereas some tricks are more complex, so slow motion can be good, it just depends on the trick I think.  Same goes for angle(s) it depends on the trick, for that trick the angle was perfect imho.  In general though, I think your format is good.

Now to start learning 2 on a loop.

Thanks for the Tutorial btw, I've been wondering how to start for a while, I look forward to seeing all the different possible starts.

Cheers for the comments, guys. I'll make the rest of the video this week, so it'll be out soon.
Christopher, I'm aware of Barnesy's page, but I've got some starts that aren't on there. Plus, I think that a couple of his starts could do with a having a couple of tips attached to them, to help understand the technique a bit better.
