Out of Practice
« on: March 06, 2010, 07:46:07 am »
I have mixed feelings about posting this. I really didn't want to make a video as I'm severely out of practice and have barely touched my diabolos in the past two months. I have nothing new to share and I wanted to wait until I had something worth sharing before making any new videos.

However, Mike wanted to test his new camera, so I agreed to do some tricks for him. He edited it into a full video and the quality amazed me, which is the reason I have decided to post this. No effects were added in post, it's all lenses and filters. The filming is pretty amazing. Thank you, Mike.

What's wrong with the sound? And Jesse when you move back to Finland, please take that Mike with you?

Nice touch with the Collab music on!

Filming was good too, much like its predessessor.

I like your string combos, especially the one around 3.30 - I'm gonna try it and tweak it if I can!

Nice one Jesse.

I like more the angles in this video. More variety and upper part of the body almost always present, i think that's important
good video

Great video!
The quality is amazing and I really like the 'uncommon' camera angels!
Maybe not new, but your tricks are awesome!

Thank you. No idea how the sound turned out that way, I will ask Mike about it.

Samuli, I'll do my best, I can try and steal his equipment at the very least.

The filming and editing was really nice I thought. The slow motion shots were lovely.

Wasn't me. I would've used different music, but I don't think Mike has seen the collab, so he didn't know. I didn't even know that he was going to edit a video, I thought that he was just testing his camera.

Hath, would love to go to the UK. Don't have enough money at the moment though. I'll see you guys at the EJC and FDC though, right?

that was really good.
I like whatever camera filter that is at 0:48, looks cool.
but yeah I think there is something up with the music (at least when you watch it at 360p) it gets kind of sketchy and skippy at parts.

I would really love to make it there, but I just don't think I will be able to afford it... Perhaps I will take a career break though borrow some money off the rents, and go to that music festival as well...

Big love for this.  The warm redish shots are just what i needed on this bitter Winters day.

Makes me think how far the diab vids have come since I joined this forum.

Loved the variety of camera angles and just generally had a good feel to it

And very well edited and filmed

Okay, that's it. Beers are on me. Let's not loose the shoes man.

You and me Jesse we need to get in shape again and kill them at diabolo nationals 2011. I fear it's a bit too late for this year ;)

Ridiculously good video, i liked this even better than the previous. The sound was perfect, no need for change.  I really need this to my IPhone for daily carry. Is the vimeo version already up?

Haha, Marko I take that challenge. 2011 here we come!

Vimeo version coming in a few days. Mike has the original and he promised to send it, but he's a busy man, so it will take a couple of days.

Oh and thanks everyone!
