First FDC2014 video has just arrived to the funny world of the interwebs.

There's coming more FDC2014 videos for sure, but question is how many? Any bets? Maybe we could have a prize for the closest without going over.

Sharing is caring!

At first I need to say I appreciate the votes I got on poll to do this and I appreciate that people voted. I will do my best with the editing and I hope that it will be enough after all superb collaboration videos done already.


I thought I would like to try to build this collaboration video to be like a routine or an act, with sequences of different types of diabolo play. So for my editing it would help a lot to get clips in 3 different camera framing / angles that I could edit diabolo movements to fit in easily to next players clips. It would also be very important that you would start your clip and end your clip with with a open string throw about your head high. Of course you can jam even after this but too but at least I would have sure moment where to cut the clip in. Trapezes, internal and external wraps would also do and I will use these as much I can but to really keep this idea of building a collaboration routine I would need your help to get the clean opening movements at the beginning and at the end of your clip, and to have the same trick filmed from 3 different sizes or/and angles.
I hope you understand what I am trying to say and do. ;)

Please read these guidelines to keep the video for 2014 as good as the previous ones:

- Please make your footage HD, at least 720p. If you don't own a HD camera, borrow it from a friend! Send your clips in the best quality you can.

- You can send as many clips you want.

- Please record your sequence from different angles.

- Keep your clips and appearances short; make the move/trick be special but not special in a way of making it long.

- Mind lighting, photography and locations

- Name your clips with your name, Include your name as you want to appear in the video, city and country) and number these clips after the name like (SamuliPasanen Tampere Sweden1)

- Please don't release your clip on the internet before the final video is online. This will be more fun this way.

- Have fun and be creative and do it good and send the clips in the original format

- Preferred places for me to get your videos are dropbox and google drive

Send your clips to raulisamuli(hät)

The deadline is November 1st and I’ll try to get the video done in the end of November. That we could all enjoy it during X-mas holiday.

If you have any question just leave a comment below!

FDC2014 14. – 17.8.2014!
Finnish Diabolo Festival (FDC) will happen again for the 9th time in Eräjärvi, 14. – 17.8.2014.

The one and only diabolo festival in Finland 2014 will be held again in the idyllic village school environment in Eräjärvi, Orivesi.
The 9th annual FDC will once again gather Finnish diabolo hobbyists and professionals together. The program includes workshops and performances from top performers in the field.

Invited guests include such a talents as:
Håvard & Jarle Bergo (Norway)
Tonza (Juupajoki)
William Gilbert (Switzerland)
Donald Grant (Scotland)

At event there is also change to join this competition:
You will need to make your own diabolo from regular items. You are not allowed to use any real diabolo parts while making your own mod! (threaded bolts, nuts, and hardware washers are not counted to be unique diabolo parts).
Best diabolos will get prizes.

- All entries must be submitted for judging at the event no later than 5:00 PM Friday, August 15th. Entries should be turned in at the registration desk
- Entries may be by proxy (Someone else can bring your diabolo, however the person entering the diabolo on your behalf must be familiar enough with the diabolo and it’s maker/modder to answer basic questions about the diabolo)
- All entries must be in a small bag or box and have the name, address, and e-mail if available of the person entering
- Written descriptions detailing the features of the diabolo are encouraged (if the judges can’t figure out what you’ve created, or all the important aspects thereof, it’s your fault, not the judges’ So make a list of all the parts, where did you get them etc.)
- The Diabolos will be judged in following criterias: Innovation and creativity (including creative use of materials), Quality, fit & finish, and visual & artistic appeal, not forgetting the Playability.

and not to forget this:
During FDC an annual event called Diabolothon is organized. The event combines athletics and diabolo and was created by the Finnish Diabolo Association in 2007.

and for Kendama people there's good change to upgrade your gradings as Donald Grant is official BKA examinator, we have BKA grading event at FDC2014 too. 
I just got this message from Mr. Grant ' I'll bring my exam papers and some workshop kit too.  Might be able to sort out some prizes too, if there's time to do a jam/ mini-comp.'
So there might even be Kendama competition!!!

better get ready and book your travels to Eräjärvi now!
