Performances / Hamish Smithers NJC 2017 Routine
« on: February 19, 2017, 04:43:59 AM »
Hey guys!
Here is my routine from Newcastle Juggling Convention 2017. I hope you like it!

Performances / Zelda Diabolo Performance by Hamish Smithers - MJC2014
« on: October 23, 2014, 10:01:46 PM »
Hey guys! For Melbourne Juggling Convention, I decided to put together a special performance combining 2 of my favourite things: Diabolo, and Zelda. I'm sure I just lost half of you but essentially it's my favourite video game franchise. So, I put together a performance with the goal of making it enjoyable for the general public (of which there were some at the performance), For jugglers and diaboloists, and those that shared my love of the Zelda series.

Before I link the performance, massive thanks to Richard Clement (who's footage is this. You might hear him say "YEAH" a couple of times.), Tyson Grant (who also got footage for me), and Jarle Bergo who freaked me out by showing interest in the performance.

TRAIN2. A video that was remade so that it wouldn't be muted. Oh well.

Gear / LED kits of Epic A-Dream
« on: December 29, 2013, 06:54:49 AM »
Hey guys. Wondering if there are any LED kits that either a) were made for the Epic A-Dream or b) would fit and be easy enough to install on an Epic A-Dream diabolo.

Possibilities. In the world of diabolo, there are plenty. Here are just a few I found, put into a small, but hopefully sweet video. Enjoy.

General / Top 20 Diaboloists 2013 - Voting
« on: December 15, 2013, 01:10:59 AM »
Hello everyone! I have decided that I want to do a 'top 20 diaboloists'... 'thing' this year. It will be similar to Luke Burrage's Top 40 Jugglers... just with diaboloists, obviously.

To vote, simply message this Facebook page with your 10 favourite diaboloists of this year!

Voting closes on the 3rd of January. That's about 20 days!

It'll take just 2 minutes of your time. :) Thanks!

Gear / Please Help! Loose Epic A-Dream
« on: October 04, 2013, 04:19:09 AM »
Hey all

I recently ordered 4 Epic A-Dreams and since they arrived 3 days ago I have been loving them.

But today when I was practicing one of them got loose. I've tightened it to some extend, but I'm not sure If I can get it to be fully tight. Is this normal? I've never had this problem with a non-bearing diabolo before.

I bought it from oddballs, and I think there is a way to get it refunded/sent back. Did I just get a dodgy one? Should I send it back? Or is there something I can do to fix it?

Hello all! Time for some fun times from MJC! There were many diaboloists who all brought different skills and ideas to the convention.
Featuring Hamish, Richard(who also has a video from MJC coming), Karl(Who we are not happy with for not bringing his diabolos ;) ),William(Who refused to so his insane stuff to the camera because "it wasn't awesome" or something), Luke(and his ghetto sticks), Joe(Juggler extreme), and others! While the tricks might not be Scandinavian level, we all had fun filming and making this was very fun!
It's also in 1080p for those of you who don't live in Australia and have actual internet ;)

Performances / Hamish Smithers Renegade - MJC 2013
« on: September 27, 2013, 05:01:52 AM »
This was an act by me, Hamish Smithers, at the renegade for MJC, that earned the top spot with many of those who saw it.
The point of this act wasn't about the tricks, more about having a laugh with those who do contemporary circus acts! It was almost completely improv.

More MJC videos are on their way.

Videos / Sydney Juggling Convention 2012 - Toddyupa's Collab.
« on: February 21, 2012, 09:15:24 AM »
Hello guys!

First of all, I a, back! I bet like No one remembers me, but I started with a little break from diabolo last year and then didn't really pick it up again until MJC last year. So, now I am back, I'll be making some videos, which brings  us to the video at hand...

SJC was amazing. Absolutely brilliant. Not many diaboloists rocked up, but with really only the three of us, it was still pretty awesome. On the last day I decided to film some random stuff, and with the small amount of footage I got, I made this:

Don't even try to watch it at the moment, as it's kinda being blocked by EMI... new version coming soon.

Hope you liked it, and if you were at the convention, YOU ROCK!

Over but far from out...

At MJC there was an Act Devising Program. It basically helped you make an act. All of the participants had the opportunity to perform their new found performing skill at the end of the Program. Here is my performance :) Enjoy

Please note: This is not my normal performance!! It was in front of jugglers and diaboloists, so I put a little more tech in it, hence the drops...
