I'll try to come up with a starting move for a Video Tennis. Let's say 3 more people can join in. Who's up for it? Please post here... ;)

I could be tempted to throw some yo-yo style into the mix.
Count me in.

Allright, it seems to me we've got our first Diabolo.ca Video Tennis group together :D I'll try to film something as soon as possible. I'm really looking forward to it guys!

How's video tennis played? I've not come across it before.

Someone films the beginning of a combo/routine. The next person learns that and then adds something to it where the first person stopped (the keypoint).

We can have it go like this: Martijn (starting move) -> Nick (adds some more moves to the combo) -> Beni (adds some more moves to the combo) -> Ceri-Anne (finishes off the combo), but I'd like to do it as followed: I start of with a starting move and then Nick, Beni and Ceri-Anne all 3 post their (hopefully different :D) endings to the starting move. I think it's nice to go for the last option, to keep things easy.

You could also make video tennis into a weekly bi weekly thing.  Have a beginning move and then through the week people could post their ending and at the end you could have a poll to pick the best ending.  That way a lot of people could get involved and it might take a little pressure off whoever is in charge of trick of the week.

Hmm yeah, that's also a good idea, I think we can try something like that as well. The thing is, it takes time to learn the previous move, come up with the next move and then to film and put it online, so it might be better to only take a few people every Video Tennis. To start this whole thing off, I wanted to keep it small and simple, hence the limited participants.

Go ahead and start your own with a few members if you'd like :) I don't see why 2 VT's couldnt be helt at the same time. I'd love to see this little concept to be explored by different people. It's totally awesome.

You could make a d.ca vt youtube account and give people doing it the password so we can all submit to the same thing and we don't have videos in a format that some computers can't read.

Most of the time I will post both a HQ downloadable version of my videos and a streaming version at Youtube (like more and more people are doing). I think a lot of people already have a Youtube account of their own, so it can easily be uploaded there.

OK, it's just that if one person submits in .avi and another "tennis" player's computer can't read .avi, for example.

Well.. in that case I'd suggest try another program to play videos with.

I'd quite like to give it a go, but if it's ok by everyone, i'll miss out the two diabolo bits?
Not sure how many times my diabolos have been in the pond

Hey, we already assembled a group of 4 people for this VT, but you're free to join the next one ofcourse :) Also, usually a VT is done with 1 diabolo, to keep things (speed) somewhat easier.

I could do the next one. This sounds like a good idea to keep forumers active.
