Title: YouTube Tutorial Series
Post by: TimEllis on February 11, 2007, 06:46:33 PM
I'm doing a bunch of video tutorials on YouTube.  What tricks?  Well that's up to you to decide.  I'm taking requests.  

I made an initial video found at

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--1MFJhlXkU

And the first tutorial (requested by a professor at my school) is Front to Back and Back to Front suns found at

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoyRcdNVWH0

Just let me know and I'll get to work!

I'm working on the "continuous" mini genocide i've seen in a few recent videos.  The one where you do a mini-g then let go of the stick and catch the stick coming round going straight into another mini-g.  I just can't get the release from one to the other stick (One of the people in diabolocamp 2 video does this im pretty sure).

Otherwise a nice 2D transfer tutorial because i lost my old one when hard drive gave up on me  :(

Thanks,
Dan

Awesome idea. We should make some kind of wiki or something where we can embed all the youtube tutorials with some text description maybe. And add all the tutorials already made.

Please could you make a tutorial on entries into arm orbits, as i can't quite work out how a sun to arm orbit works, and my entry into orbits looks pretty timid.
Also, a figure 8 arm orbits tutorial would be helpful too, as I can go round my arms all day, but anything out of the ordinary is a bit much for my relatively young diaboloing mind hehe.

Thanks for doing this kind of thing. It's greatly appreciated!  ;D

how about a 2 diabolo suns. I can do singular left suns but a tutorial on continuous suns, left and right suns, pirouette suns, and sprinkler suns would be nice.

Just so you guys know, I am a full time student as well.  So you'll have to be patient for this.  And I do still kinda wanna work on that "hard stuff."  I think a Wiki with all the various tutorial videos at least linked would be a good idea.  Anybody wanna get on that?

Also, if anyone ELSE wants to hop in and make a video, feel free.  I won't be mad because someone stole my thunder.

Well I finally got around to making another one.  I think this will end up a weekly thing.  This next tutorial is Continuous Mini-genocides.  Enjoy!

Keep the requests comin.  I'm keeping track of what needs to get done.

Some Integral Suicide tutorials would be cool, I'm really bad at those :D
Title: Re: YouTube Tutorial Series
Post by: TimEllis on February 17, 2007, 08:45:40 PM
Ya know, I'd like to see one of those tutorials too!  I'm no good at them either.
Title: Re: YouTube Tutorial Series
Post by: Beni on February 17, 2007, 09:27:26 PM
The thing with integral suicides is that you just have to work them out for yourself. An easy one to try is a Tomicide with an easy entry. Simply start doing minigenocide movements with and open string (just swing the stick around anticlockwise [for righties]) and let the string wrap around the axle. As it wraps, let go of the other stick and catch the first stick as it comes round. Catch the second stick in your right hand and your left with a right backside, exactly like a tomicide. Once you realise that, you can explore genocide and mini genocide exits. Once you have this solid — which wont take long — try doing Eric's trick, which is the same movement but you just hold on for longer and swing the stick around again. Exit by catching both sticks at the same time.
This probably doesn't make sense, but if you really want I can make a video, though I don't think that's neccesery necessery needed ::).

I can't view your vid, and as there are 0 views for it, I don't think anyone else can. :o
Dunno whether youtube is a bit broken at the mo, or you need to re-upload, but the tutorial vid seems to be broken. :-\ Damn... I was looking forward to that *sniff* :'(

Hope you or youtube can get it back up and running. Looking forward to watching it!! :)

It has and is working for me, althouhg you are right in saying that the views and ratings are incorrect.
Title: Re: YouTube Tutorial Series
Post by: TimEllis on February 18, 2007, 09:46:40 PM
YouTube has gone silly :-\

I can see the video.  Can anyone else?  I'll reload if you want me to.
Title: Re: YouTube Tutorial Series
Post by: Alex! on February 18, 2007, 09:56:40 PM
I can see it but it says it only has had 1 view, probably best to reload it, unless people just aren't watching it :D ;D

I can see it now, but it was a bit touch and go there for a sec hehe.

Good luck with the harder tricks you're trying for. If you keep up the tutorials, we'll catch you up in no time  ;D

A great visual aid for starting diabolo:) can we have some arm combos, perhaps simple 2d combos?
Title: Re: YouTube Tutorial Series

It's good to see you're knocking out tutorials for all abilities. Streetlight Manifesto at the start!-A man with good taste ;)

Correction, a man with "your" taste ;-)

Still, very nice, tutorials are very helpful for most things diabolo in nature.  Hope to see more,

Ye i would also love to see some nice arm combos and maybe some other body moves.  Thanks again for the mini-g tutorial  ;D

Dan
Title: Re: YouTube Tutorial Series
Post by: Jay1981 on March 03, 2007, 12:15:19 PM
I agree with Dan. Arm combo's would be good. I'm currently working on one of my own, which is coming together slowly. A tutorial on the figure 8 round both arms would be helpful. Haven't quite worked that one out yet.

Post by: TimEllis on March 06, 2007, 04:50:33 PM
A bit off topic, but something has changed in my camera.  I don't know if you saw in my last tut, but everything seemed really like washed out.  Someone turned the contrast way down it almost feels like.  I took some video at the NYC festival over the weekend and its the same case.  Didn't used to be like that.  Anybody have any ideas?

I realy like the tutorials :D i have been wanting to learn the continuous mini genocide for ages but i havent know what it is called. I named it the spiny lots of times stick trick..
I would like to see some simple 2 diabolo moves besides
a sprinkler and double sprinkler, a fan,
Mabye some stalls, magic knots, some cool transfers and a 180 fan.

Its a big list but someones got to do it!

Excuse my spelling mistakes if there are any. I cannot spell :(

Most of those tricks that you requested are already on diabology.  You really should buy it, it may be slightly old but it's really worth every penny cause it's so freaking awesome!  Also what are you looking for in an arm combo tutorial?  one diabolo combos have to be thought out by you!  It's the originality of tricks from Antonin that cause everyone to try to copy it.  There are several things that you should consider in tricks, smoothness/flow, originality, and difficulty (like mini-g's or suicides in the middle of a combo).  I might do a tutorial for three low some time...  If I feel like not being lazy or am just inspired due to some incredible videos ^.^ hint hint.

btw, off topic question, when is the WJF 3 dvd coming out?

What camera do you have
Title: Re: YouTube Tutorial Series
Post by: TimEllis on March 18, 2007, 05:11:25 PM
I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC21.

And about fan and mini columns, I'm working on those myself, so I may not be the best person to teach.

Post by: David - SAS1 on March 19, 2007, 06:51:28 PM
If the picture is all washed out it could be to do with the apperture letting in too much light when it is recording, why not try changing that so les light gets in through the lens.

Could you do some leg stuff.
Title: Re: YouTube Tutorial Series
Post by: Jem on March 19, 2007, 08:27:13 PM
Hi,

I saw a couple of requests for fan to mini columns so I've posted a couple of short vids which may help:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfyh2qeIDQY

This one is from a 45 degree angle and slows down on the front wrap (vortex) entry.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5rgp6aQDzg

This one is from a side-on view.

I hope these help. If you would like further explantaion, please feel free to PM me.

Cheers,

Jem.

Seeing as you seem to be good with suns... I was hoping you could get a good tutorial for between the legs suns?

I've seen it in Diabology, but the angle they show it at doesn't really help me on what you're supposed to do with your legs, since whenever I try, it just hits me on the leg...
Title: Re: YouTube Tutorial Series
Post by: Jem on March 23, 2007, 11:32:46 AM
You are welcome.

I've also got this on you tube, which shows how you switch from  an integral to an eternal suicide in slo-mo for anyone whose interested:

Post by: Eric Moffett on June 06, 2007, 04:30:44 AM
Since I'm too lazy to read all the request posts... Sorry if this has already been requested...

I have absolutely no idea how to do any slack whips, I've seen videos, slow-mo videos, and read some basic instruction, but it doesn't make any sense to me... So a tutorial on slack whips would be really awesome!

(I might be getting a camera soon, so I might be able to do some of the easier trick tutorials requests!)

it would be real cool if you'd do a tutorial explaining about each different fan (M/S/AC/C)+ Instructions on how to do each...
