Kris and I spent some time filming a not-so-serious diabolo video over the past week titled "Smile".

Hope you enjoy it and have a little bit of the same fun that we had making it. :D

Hehe, that really did make me smile. It had just a fun aura glowing from it. and it did a nice job of distracticing me from this wretched french homework. That infinit suicide trick where you wrap it in from your hand was sweet. I was trying to think of something like that, but appereantly my skills were not sufficent enough in succeeding. I will have to give it a try tommorrow.

Great video. I wish I had a good diabolist my age to do crazy tricks like that. :p Heh. It was funny when Kris rode that horse thing. Also, your three diab shuffle looks near perfect now. Great job!
Go Draco with your Diabolo!

Good and entertaining movie and great diaboloing as well!
I really like the way you smash everyting to the ground every time something goes wrong 8)
You do it with such style and grace and a lot of emotion!!!
Thanx for including your mistakes in the video and sharing the fun with the rest of us.

You can hear it hit the floor, blimey...
The use of a park was definately interesting.  Lil kids can go play somewhere else, it's grown-up's time now.  And that 3low looks so solid, even with a 42 (or is it 522) in there.  
Can't go back to our park, there was some unpleasantness, with a seesaw...

Perfect title Sean.

Great video
I see you belong to the Garfield school of thought of if your props misbehave you should punish them so that they don't do it again.

Dear Sean,

Outstanding!  The 3 is looking SO solid (You'll be happy to know that my 3 high is finally getting there).

As for the abusing of props, didn't I teach you that?  haha  You were a bit lenient on them, I should think.  You only slammed the one...what about the kicking of the other two?  And no swearing?  Please.....you're like Mother Teresa compared to me...just ask Lisa.  :twisted:

Seriously though, great job brother.  I hope our paths cross this summer.

Matt
Many Thanks to Sean for all his work and inspiration.  Respect to the MFP!

I agree with everyone in this topic :D I always love to see new videos of you Sean! Kris has some nice skills as well! and your 3d is very nice Sean, well done. How did you get into that 3d around a part of the playground (don't know the word, but it's not over the leg :wink:) It's so fun to see :P

Just awesome stuff fellows 8)

Excellent video.

Makes me think a bit about TwoLoose.
Hum. Let's clarify that. I don't mean it in a negative way. 3 low + a bit of funny stuff + me a bit involved with twoloose = me think about twoloose :-)

Funny, well edited, nice tricks, good camera work = awesome video

Thanks for the comments everyone!

juggleBG, the music is a remix of "Verbal" by Amon Tobin. Thanks to Arjan for introducing me to them. A large part of the inspiration for the goofy theme of the video is based on a talk I had with Arjan after a couple days of frustrating filming. He reminded me again that diaboloing is supposed to be fun, told me to turn on some Amon Tobin and improvise. I went outside and right at that point I came up with some new moves such as that infinite suicide hand move near the beginning. Kris and I always had fun when we were filming around playstructures so we decided to film the rest of the video around them, have fun, and not bother trying to film tricks that we found frustrating (hence the lack of 3 high tricks). Thanks for the advice, Arjan.

JiBe, being compared in any way to TwoLoose is a great honour... I still think that is one of the best diabolo videos ever made. When I first watched it I enjoyed the great camera angles and editing. Years later and after much hard practice I have come to realize how incredibly advanced most of the diaboloing was (and still is) and how innovative some of the tricks were. Certainly a classic and ahead of its time in many ways. So, when is TwoLooseTwo coming out? ;)

Matt, hope 3 high continues to progress for you. Make sure not to stop for a couple months... you wouldn't want to lose all your progress like me. Only slammed one diabolo? Well, yes... but have you seen my 3 diabolo slam in this small practice video? :D Hope our paths cross soon too. They will someday again - and I expect a little 3 high and 3 low out of you by then. ;)

Martijn, how did I get into the 3d around the rod thing? A little like this. (2mb, MPEG) Once it's going it's easy, but the start took a few tries... a tad bit awkward.

This was the first video that I've jointly edited with anyone, and I must say that it made for a much more enjoyable experience. I also think it helped in making the tough decisions of what clips were deserving of being included and what needed to be cut. Too bad Kris and I are only in the same city for a couple weeks a year.

Your welcome Sean!
The video has a very positive vibe, thats good.
Altough, I got to tell you, when I practice any 3 diabolo`s I will swear a lot... hmm.. use bad language.

What a honour this video is compared to TwoLoose. Good job Sean and Kris! This is a movie oyu can just watch again and again.

... and four-letter words :P In Dutch, though.

Thanks for that starting-around-the-rod-video Sean. It looks really hard, but with such a nice 3 low it also looks very nice! and funny ofcourse :)

Keep it up :D
