Lame. William Lame.
« on: November 21, 2008, 05:29:42 pm »
Wanted to wait a bit longer after the collab but I have other stuff to do soon so I'm doing this now ...
It's one of theses numerous practise sessions I've filmed and that some of you may have seen.
So, just a still camera and some fooling around. Sorry for those who were expecting a proper video, seems I won't EVER have time for that  :-|

Enough with the introduction, here's the link (right click, save as ...)

http://www.circuspla.net/video/lame_williamlame.mp4 (61MB)

There's also a youtube version but watching it without downloading the video would be an insult to Panasonic.
Just for the ones who don't have any choice :



Hope you guys like it!

Huge thanks to Martijn for the hosting and the name of the video  :P (which is "obviously" a mix between William Lin, Lame (because I'm lame) and James Bond)
Well for everything in general really  :-*

BJC is going to be mental! I think the BJC video should involve doing diabolo whilst getting naked and streaking through the convention!

Also this video is nuts. Nuts.

I asked for blue ones but they didn't have any left. I am deeply sorry.

This is a great video, I like every thing in it, the way that you master 1,2,3 diabolos, the bonus and much more.
I recommend you change your name to William Great.

so what camera do you use? I have a panasonic too and the video quality is comparable. I cant remember the name, but its 8mpx 35mm wide angle lens something something.

great video. It shows the progression of diabolo these days- tweakage and smoothness!

I tried it out for a friend, I actually never use the wrap over start ^^

so what camera do you use? I have a panasonic too and the video quality is comparable. I cant remember the name, but its 8mpx 35mm wide angle lens something something.
Panasonic NV-GS320

That was so lazy...
Good to see you got the same feeling viewing the video I had filming it  :-D

Its all in the stick colour. Which mind you - I was totally rocking first
True, I would still go with orange over theses ones if I could but they didn't have them in stock ...
Starting to get used to this colour now though

such a smooth style and I totally loved the background!

Still haven't got round to saying my bit on here. In terms of style and content this is probably my favourite video I can remember. Top notch. Editing and scenery leave something to be desired but the quality of the diabolo is superb.
