General / Re: can anyone in the uk give 1 on 1 lessons or no of anyone?
« on: October 06, 2011, 02:47:53 PM »
Where are you located? There are a number of juggling clubs around the country offering a good opportunity to share tricks and learn with other people. These can be quite small and not all of them have top top level diabolo players going regularly. Another option is conventions. There are many of these across the UK through-out the year. Some are a week long, some are a day long but they normally always have a decent turn out of people with a pretty decent skill level and are really good places to learn new skills as well as meeting other like minded people. Depending where you are you can always arrange meets and tell everyone on here to come along. In terms of 1 on 1 tutition, I'm not sure if I really know anyone who does that but if you let us know where you're based and if you happen to live near any spinners, they may well want to help you out and have someone to spin with.

shame about the quality of the video though  :-| would be great to see this in at least 720.

Dude, there's an edit button. Stop writing multiple posts.

(good video by the way Sebi)

You sure they'll sell visions Dave?

I would imagine the best bet would be to travel into london. Its only about an hour from Oxford then you want to head for oddballs which is in Camden. They will no doubt have what you want. Otherwise I would guess that its pretty unlikely that there is a juggling shop in Oxford...

Right then, I have be completely honest and say the editing was not very good at all... very amateurish. Let me explain... didn't really get why you put the lyrics of the song into the video. A whole page of the word runnin' really isn't appropriate or enjoyable to watch. If you want to use the basic effects that come with simple video editing software (you did so at 42 seconds about) try to use something simple and a little bit more stylish like perhaps a fade?! Most of the other ones come across as cheap and tacky so I'd leave them out if I were you. Editing is more than you putting the clips together, you need to plan it out more in the actual filming. Every shot was from the same perspective (on the floor, not a very good perspective) and most of the shots were in the same place entirely. Also, not sure what camera you are using but the quality isn't very good and a lot of the shots you cut the top of tricks out. The song choice was better than it has been but I don't think it really suited the style of the video. ( I wont say too much about this as its all personal preference really). One of the shots at the end where you tried to do some scenic filming (around 1:42, again really terrible transition used) I also didn't really like at all. I can see why you did it, as a lot of diabolo videos have shots of scenery but this is generally relevant and follow the theme of the video. The problem I had with your shot was that it was of a pretty unattractive building followed by some gravel. Both not very exciting things to look at, nor were they tying into your video in any way. The shot was also very poorly filmed, shaking everywhere and seemed like it was possibly inspired by the blare witch project. I found the whole video kinda dull ( in colour) it was almost grey which didn't suit the jolly song you choose at all. All in all, I can see you are trying to follow what other people are doing, which is good, you just need to focus A LOT on filming nicely, bringing everything together with some sort of context and using cleaner more professional editing techniques.

Tricks / Re: bloody clown integral
« on: May 26, 2011, 10:10:03 PM »
You would catch the green stick after the integral. I'll try and explain it but its fairly complicated:
(for Righties)
Doing a normal infinite suicide, pop a nice high genocide out of it (I find that it helps if the genocide hits nearer to the stick that I'm holding, not sure if that's just me or not). Let the genociding stick swing around the diabolo so that it gets one wrap on it. As the genociding stick is just finishing one revolution around the diabolo and there is one wrap (normally a left back-wrap) you want to pop the stick in your right hand out to your left (it will travel counter clockwise, same as the other stick that's just completed the genocide). You want to be popping the stick when the genociding stick is at about 3-4 O'clock from your perspective. When you pop the stick to the left, you want to be grabbing the sting about a 40cm up the string from the stick that has just done the genocide with your right hand. The stick you popped, should now be undoing the wrap that the genocide put on the diabolo. As it does this, you want to be swinging the genocide stick towards the diabolo so that it does a sort of mini-genocide as the other stick is unwrapping. As the mini-genocide completes, grab the stick with your right hand straight back into infinite suicide.

Hope this helps.

You shouldn't put your shoes on like that, you're going to seriously damage the backs of them. You should undo the laces and tie them up again once your feet are in and they'll last you much longer.

Also, if you look here and click on specifications. http://www.visionresearch.com/Products/High-Speed-Cameras/v121/ You can see in the top left of the info the different settings...so its not going to be exactly 3000fps judging by the data there.

No, that was a problem I considered....was more of a theory then something actually applicable to the video. There isnt an obviously mark on the diabolo's anyway...

True, but what is "time" in your formula? 4 seconds? I think not. Doing what you do gives you relative speed. not the real speed

Be good enough for what ben was angling at. Obviously not 4 seconds no, that was just a rough example to aid my explination, which I think it did as ben seems pretty chuffed with my response (potentially erect)

be a lot less complicated to just put a little mark on the rim of the diabolo. take, lets say 4 seconds of footage. slow it down, count how many times the mark goes round in that time and then just use speed = distance/time. using the circumference*the amount of times the diabolo revolves....

The intro could do with a rework...I suggest going for exactly this but change the words for 'diabolo news' and edit you into it.
