Title: Request for Videos of the Week
Post by: Sean on December 10, 2004, 05:24:21 AM
I want to emphasize the intent of the videos of the week (http://diabolo.ca/tricks.htm) and to plea with people to submit clips... and to start submitting those clips soon.

First of all the videos of the week are now archived here (http://diabolo.ca/tricks.htm).  The videos are meant to be of original, creative, rarely seen, new combinations, or simply hard tricks. These don't need to be fancy or well polished tricks. We'll even accept funny tricks. ;)

Elmeri wrote in this message (http://diabolo.ca/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1415&highlight=#1415) that he was concerned his trick was too easy for the video of the week. I want to point out that no trick is too easy for the video of the week providing it's a bit creative or original. I think most people would be glad if someone submited an original trick that they could quickly learn as opposed to just staring at it in confusion.

Our hope is to nourish the diabolo world with small, short, and informal videos on a regular basis. For this to work I need your participation. I have spoken with a number of you on a one on one basis, but I think this message needs to get out to everyone since I would like to get as many of you involved in this as possible. No fancy editing is required. If you want help with video conversion just let me know.

We desperately need videos for video of the week! If you've got anything up your sleeves, now is the time to get to it, film it, and send it to diabolo.ca "at" gmail.com or post it and send me a link. If you've got more than one trick you'd like to submit, we can use them all. Come on, you know you want your picture up on that new spiffy page! Think of the fame and glory. ;)

I wish I had a video camera (or knew someone with one!) then I would show y'all up with my double trapeze simultaneous release!

Sounds good! Thanks!

Oli, if you find someone with a camera sometime, get it on film and send it in!

To everyone else: it would still be great for you to send in all your videos. I'd like to have a bit of a reserve going so I don't have to worry about coming up with a video every week. Makes my job a little less stressful. ;)

I can't think of anything new or cool. Yes i am aware that it can be something old school or rarely seen. I'll get my thinking cap on. i'm sure i'll have some material for you after Vegas  :wink:
Still need to find time to film that leg kick tutorial.

I've just bought myelf a rather nice mini DV camcorder.  Now all I need is tricks!  And half a clue about using the thing...
