Videos / Re: Collaboration Video 2009

First of all, I want to thank Jesse for putting yet another amazing collab video this year. Jesse, you put so much effort into this video and it turned out beautiful.

@bums3n: I do not see how you believe that there were only people well-known to the diabolo world in this video. Certainly there were, but by far, I think this year had the most diversity of any year we have done the collab video.

My proof?
1. Look at the map Sean put on the first page. It spreads throughout Europe, but also Australia and North America!
2. Participants: What about that long list of people on the first page? And it's not like every person's name is repeated.
3. Diversity of Participants: There are a lot of new faces on this list.

The bottom line is, it's possible that you had a brilliant trick and maybe Jesse missed it, but you can't go around criticizing him and the more "well-known" diaboloists just because you didn't make it.

And again, I cannot stress how much Jesse has done. This is a beautiful video.

I'm already looking forward to next year!

That was a great promo video.

I think for the floating diabolo he used a long string that extended from one side of the stage to the other.
I've used the long string before, but I've never gotten it so smooth.

from jyp444...

Well, I said yoyos because my "yoyos" don't really qualify as diabolos.
I just use them interchangeably.
