Hello all!

Finally I was able to film some manipulations I do...
This is a vid which I will send to some artistic agency here in France, because I need to work a lot more!!

Please forgive the lack of staging, but I was in a hurry and we caught these in a few hours...

1-BALL ROUTINE:

good I've seen only multiball part, and it's quite good you play slowly, and it's a point for you sometimes you seems to be not so clear, but maybe it's only video's impression. Are you going to EJC in Greece? I would like to meet you and play and learn together

so..good work! ^__^

I thoroughly enjoyed those, thank you very much Sir!

It is always interesting to see the slant that magicians put on CJ (at this point I should mention the pyramid production from silks, excellent ) but you've thrown your heart, soul and knowledge into this and it serves you very well.

Am I correct to say it was all slowed down during editing?

And I'm sure there was something spooky going on with the 'closed fist two handed iso' in the one ball video. I'm going to watch again

Ed posting as Drew says: Two fist iso: I worked it out. Very nicely done!

Nice videos, but feel very dramatic to me.

Keep them coming!!

Well, unfortunatly I won't go to Greece, in fact I need to work and earn money right now.
For this I'll need to move to south France (french riviera), find a place to live, etc...
I would enjoy to encounter you and share some moves and ideas!!
Maybe during another convention?

Yes, that's right, palmspining today is the most cherished thing of all I do...
In the future I'll try to render the exact image I feel inside, which means a lot of work!!!

No, there wasn't any slowing down during the process.
That's the way I work, very slow...
Sometimes I go much faster, for ex. in separated shower, to suddenly slow down, quite frozen in space...but this isn't apparent in the videos...

Haha!!
This is an idea that came across my mind when I wasn't able to even isolate the sphere!! lol!
I think this is a technique used in some magic trick, in fact I only saw a pic of a magician doing something similar with a glass, but no method.
I found that I could try this idea with a 100 mm ball...no gimmick, no fake, only your fists.
Now I bet this is the way the guy was doing his glass thing!!

Thank you all for your kind words, very encouraging!!

Best,

Sorry, my comment above wasn't supposed to sound negative... Sorry if it did...

The two fist iso is really nice. Drew and I spent a bit of time working it out. We like it. Compliments on discovering it

You're style is very 'Magician'. Not what I'm into, but it works for you, and you like it. stick with what you like.

I'd like to see a video or two of you playing around, I want to see the real you contact juggling, not your stage character.

Very nice. you got blogged.

Ed, no problem, i didn't ear any negative comment here lol !!

Glad you like my "closed fist two handed iso", to quote ElsieDee...
This is a lot of fun to do, and the angles are very good.

You know, on these vids there is no character involved...I just dressed up myself with a jacket and went on: the purpose was to send this to as many people I can.
I already got in touch with some to work... ^^

In the streets I dress up differently, but there is always me lol > a magician, this is what I'm for so many years, I guess all I do will forever have this "magician style"!

I've planned a residence at the beginning of 2008, with different skilled people (costume, metal construction, lighting, music...).
I want to do onstage what I see in my mind...

Thanks for blogging me!

I thought these videos worked really nicely, not just the contact ones, but the magic as well. I'd love to see the eventual show that you've got planned in your mind, these look rather promising.

Nicely done

very inspiring videos, It's nice to see a different and unique style to contrast with everything else. Your mix of magic and contact is simply brilliant. Keep on going, follow your heart, never stop!

The two fist iso was amazing, first one that's taken my breath away since I discovered the enigma. I, as well, would love to see an eventual show!

Awesome.

cool stuff . I Like the magic in the beginning of the multiball !
It's great. The balls you play with are huge : looks real nice with your "slow style".

I like it a lot !

very pretty, well done, and excellent music selection

I'd say try and keep your palms parallel and vertical during your mineshafts, and your butterflies could stand to be a little more horizontal in the movement than vertical (unless that's the look you were going for)

Aside from that, absolutely beautiful. . .your isolations inspire me and make me jealous!
