Title: Collaboration video 2013 - Call for videos
Post by: Håvard on June 30, 2013, 11:40:43 PM
Hello everyone!   8)

July has begun, and i think we should start to think about the diabolo.ca collaboration video 2013. Jarle and I are really happy to be the editors for 2013, we appreciate the opportunity  :)


Please read these guidelines to keep the video for 2013 as good as the previous ones:


- Please make your footage HD, at least 720p. If you don't own a HD camera, borrow it from a friend! Send your clips in the best quality you can.

- You can send as many clips you want. Feel free to record your sequence from different angles.

- We only need little sequences, we can't put a sequence that has one minute in the final video, leave space to other participants too.

- Send the clips in the original format

- You don't have to only send in technical stuff, it can be funny stuff, bloopers, or everything else that involves diabolos.

- Mind lighting, photography and locations. Please don't just record something in your messy backyard, try to find cool locations, and maybe add some camera movements to make your clip even more awesome. (You can bring your friend to help you with the filming)

- Include your name as you want to appear in the video, your forum username and the place where you live. (city and country) Not the place your clip is recorded, but the place where you live.

- Please don't release your clip on the internet before the final video is online. If no one knows each others tricks, it will be a suprise for everyone!

- Have fun and be creative!


You can upload your videos to sites like dropbox, ge.tt , box.com , 4shared.com or any other

Send your clips to hovvi_97@hotmail.com

the deadline is october 1th (The reason for that is because i think 3 months is plenty of time to go outside and record something cool, and ill try to make the video done in the end of november. Of course you can send videos after october 1st, but then I can't assure it'll be in.

If you have any question just leave a comment below!

Wow nice...but in original format?! Dayum, you know how huge is that, for me at least. Can I send in another format that is less pain to upload?

Thanks :)

I myself am not a experienced editor/computer geek but what I do know is that the raw video format, as recorded, is very important in keeping a clear good video quality.
Title: Re: Collaboration video 2013 - Call for videos
Post by: 5p3ak on July 01, 2013, 11:05:16 AM
Hmm for me a 30 sec clip is about 120MB +- but then again clips around 30sec are just enough right? Do you guys need more? I've tons of unedited footage.
Title: Re: Collaboration video 2013 - Call for videos
Post by: Håvard on July 01, 2013, 03:26:17 PM
As Arjan said, it is important to keep the original format, so we don't lose any quality.

Also, I think that a 30 seconds long sequence is a little too long for a collaboration video. Try to film short tricks or combos, to make space for other participants. If everyone sends in 30 second long clips, We only have space for about 30 participants in a 15 minute long video. Last year we were 46 participants, lets try to keep it up!  ;)

How many videos can we submit?
I assume 3 max will be used

The BKA Collaboration - 2013 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8_xDnbSDas#ws)
This might give you some ideas of the length of combo - I edited it btw

You can submit as many videos as you want  :) Ill consider how many i use, it depends.

This might give you some ideas of the length of combo - I edited it btw

Well, kendama is a bit different from diabolo, so the tricks dont have to be as short as in this kendama video. Just watch previous diabolo collaboration videos to get an idea of how long the sequences should be. Feel free to send in as long clips as you want, but if it is too long (30 sec or something) ill just cut out the best part  :)

PS: Feel free to write comments like "Yay, im in" or "I will record something!" etc  ;)

Alright so just straight to the point, or rather straight to the trick am I right?  :-D

Most probably submitting through Mediafire.

And if I can I'll record some diabolists in Brazil too.

Post by: Chloé F. on July 04, 2013, 07:17:27 PM
Do you think you'll be able to include everyone in the collab video ? I mean if an nknown diaboloist as me did an integral or a trick, would they have luck to be in the video ? Because I'm going to film a short integral ;-)
Title: Re: Collaboration video 2013 - Call for videos
Post by: Arjan on July 04, 2013, 08:51:20 PM
In respond of Chloe's post, I'm pretty sure the editors will try to include everyone sending something, since that is the whole point of this.
The technical difficulty of a clip does not necessarily have to be very high, there are much more factors that come in play here.
Plenty of room for everyone to do something they feel proud of and share it in this epic annual video.

Maybe we should consider trying to reach out to diabolists not only via this forum, maybe social media or other forums. Anyone?

Post by: dimensions on July 04, 2013, 08:58:51 PM
One step ahead of you Arjan - I posted a link of this thread to the kendama forum
There are a few diaboloists on there like "The Void" and "Donald Grant"

I agree and disagree.
First off i don't mind the idea of asking  other diabolo/ forums, what i disagree with is going to sites like YouTube and other video and social media sites as it would be extremely hard to keep track of everything  :-|

Final note is that this is the Diabolo.Ca collaberation video!

To counter your argument, Mediaboy, the participating population here has dwindled vastly in relation to the rise of other social media platforms (go back and see how much discussion we would get in 2009-2010 compared to today). Further, how is a community supposed to 'grow' if it stays gated due to some halfassed argument that "its our collaboration"? As an example of how some are already going elsewhere to recruit, the fact that Tancle has posted a request to this group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/139434249475118/ (https://www.facebook.com/groups/139434249475118/)) is exciting because then we'll might get some participants that we haven't had in the past. Finally, could you clarify how things will be hard to track - the call for videos is very clear and simple regarding name and place; why would it then be hard to keep track of everything?

Was thinking the exact same Void! Thanks for kicking in and proving your active state of lurking!
Would be lovely to have a big diversity of diabolo-ists from all around, and these names mentioned cannot be missed!
Title: Re: Collaboration video 2013 - Call for videos
Post by: Ronnie on July 05, 2013, 09:17:29 PM
Not to hate on dimensions, but Donald had Facebook so it is easier to ask him through that (although I do understand that dimensions may not have Facebook).

Talking about Facebook maybe we could ask some non-active diaboloists through that? There are many amazing diaboloists on Facebook who lost their passwords or are just inactive but are amazing nonetheless!

I guess the more the merrier right?
Title: Re: Collaboration video 2013 - Call for videos
Post by: The Void on July 05, 2013, 09:29:54 PM
So this is the *DCA forum* collaboration video, right?
So if people are suggesting advertising it elsewhere, are they thinking that
A) It may prod lapsed forum members to poke their noses back in, and submit? (And become re-active on the forum.)
B) It will prompt new people to join the forum and submit? (And become active on the forum.)
C) Non-forum members will submit something?

A and B would be good: bringing new blood and new activity to the boards.
Not sure about C. What does it gain for the forum? If advertising elsewhere, I think people should specify that it's a collaboration video *for forum members*... But that new members are welcome to sign up and join in.

Does that sound right?

I agree with what Max said here:

I meant that there may be too many submissions from just random people all the the net and it MAY be hard to keep track of who's where in the editing process.

Its great that we have one great collab video every year and everything is improving each year.

The only thing that i want to say is:  2 Tricks per person/group is enough.
I always think when i see someone for the 3rd time in the collab: oh notthat person again!

People are free to submit more than 2 clips, but i will decide which clips i will be using :)

I have only received clips from 3 different persons yet, so come on guys! Go outside, find an awesome location, and film some tricks! Feel free to include some nature shots of the location aswell :)

When I was organising the BKA kendama collaboration the Void told me that 90% of collaboration submissions are submitted during the last week and we still have 2 months left to film

But... I will submit soon, there is another trick I would like to film - I have already filmed one, but I need to get some other camera angles from a friend

I hope this years collaboration will be highly exceptional and full of exceptional tricks

Hi everyone, how are you?!  :-D  sorry for not updating in a while!

I actually planned to release this years collab early, and at least in good time before christmas, but due to illness and much schoolwork it has been a bit more delayed than I expected. Now it begins to take shape, and I maybe think it will be finished next week sometime.

By the way, good job everyone, I have received a LOT of creative and awesome clips!

Cheers,
Håvard
