Proper Props
« on: July 29, 2018, 10:07:49 AM »
Heyo, it has been a while since I have made the effort to make a diabolo video properly. I am quite happy I did, because this gives me a lot more satisfaction than ****ty instagram practice clips. This is one of several reasons why I have decided to quit posting random clips on instagram.
I want to encourage the diabolo community to do the same, because proper videos don't get lost after a few days and give one a lot more inspiration! Let's be honest, do you ever say to yourself, "Woah I need to rewatch that instagram video, it was insaaaane!"? ... Yea, that is what I thought  ;).
Enough said, here is the video:

I really agree with what you said about keeping tricks held back for long-form videos, I hope that style of sharing tricks comes back.

and here's what i wrote copy pasted from youtube:

i'm gonna steal the trick at 1:50 i hope that's okay with you

2:32 is like the weirdest, nerdiest trick i've ever seen and i love it, 2:52 is super pretty also

and lastly, i'm impressed that you got such good lighting while filming at night, great job!

Wooow. I finally remembered to watch it. I think this is my favorite from you.
In this one I think your tricks look more aesthetic. Very clean. Amazing locations. Taro pretending he has never thrown a fourth diabolo. Very elegant style. Very nice editing.
My highlights are bounce in 0:34, the right hand move at the end of the combo at 1:44, and the stick bounce around 3:09
