camera was really shaky, maybe invest in a tripod. then you can film on your own too.
i absolutely hated the music but that is just my opinion, although i think it may be shared by others :-\
and the tricks were ok, nothing too amazing, but still good.

maybe try and work on different camera angles/shots? slack stuff and cradle stuff looks crap from far away.

The music killed the mood. It really didn't fit.
Some places the diabolo was hard to see. Try to make sure its visible. Also cut out the accelerations and mix the scenes up a bit more.
Good work.  :)

same as everyone else, shaky camera, some bad spots but above all the music........ come on man MC scooter???? it was the worst production on any track i have heard (and i have heard a lot of crap in my time).
however nice work on getting a vid out which is more than i can say. I'm sure the next one will be better than this.

kill the cradles, please. Nobody finds cradles interesting. Invest in longer sequences of diab action instead of single tricks. And don't show so much acceleration.

other than that, same general criticism

I think you'll find the general public LOVES cradles and pretty much anything that isn't the diaboloist just gazing at their shoes. You're looking at it from a .ca perspective - we're certainly a different type of crowd than what you'll find when you're performing on the street/some other type of gig that isn't just a juggling convention.

if anything cradles are underrated. they're dripping with 3rd base potential. its all about the delivery

i didn't think the vid was actually that bad. just get a tripod. not bad for a first attempt

thats true. D.ca perspective does say cradles=bleh
general public? Well that just shows how little they actually know, huh? haha
but cradles=3b? Awesome. I think we should just designate 3b as its own category.

1) OT.
2)3rdB is derived from other categories (IMO). So no.

The camera man should stop juggling while filming.

I just wanna clear this out

I DID NOT DO THE EDITING MUSIC

ITS ALL MY FRIEND

So dont blame me for his mistakes...

EDIT: Just again one more clearing out to do

The camera man had to hold like a bag full of stuff (Dont really know why) there by making him shake like a freshly fished fish

i dont care what anyone said- i liked the music.... just not for this video
other than that prettty much the same stuff. also, another thing to keep in mind is the zoom. it was really far away from you, so you couldnt always tell what you were doing.
beyond all, great video! just remember first is the worst- ur only going to improve!
