The votes are in and counted, the public has spoken, and the winners of the first ever contactjuggling.org Hogmanay Collaboration Showdown are...

AETHER ARTS!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyexBGr1bI8

Aether Arts are collectively granted the precious and much coveted .org bragging rights. I'm sure I speak for us all when I say use them wisely for the betterment of all contactjuggling-kind.

Much as the bitter taste of defeat (which is oddly reminiscent of liver) pains me, I have to say I'm delighted to have been a part of this contest. All the videos were fantastically well put together and the quality of all far exceeded what I was expecting (including my own!).

We all did good. And next time (and yes, there will be a next time), we'll all do better. Especially those of us who couldn't make it due to circumstances beyond their control (get well soon Briney!) and those who couldn't make it due to being too darn lazy (we're looking at you Bristol!)

'til the next time people!

And here we go:
Contact London Comes Together


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGqmJiam1YQ

Featuring Nika, Oli, Chris, Ben and myself (with a special guest appearance by Matt) strutting our funky contact stuff.

The image at 5:47 (and the sequence leading up to it) is the idea I had in mind when I set out. So glad I got it (even if the quality is a bit iffy). I'm very fond of the credits too.

Much fun was had by all along the way.

Btw - youtube says it's blocked in Germany because of the music copyright, but vimeo doesn't seem to mind as much, so if you can't see it on youtube, check it out there: http://vimeo.com/18265109

(The rest of Aether would really like to thank Bri for editing our video. And Thank you, Ao...because if we can't "win" on skill *YET*at least we can try to look cool. :wink:)

Our video doesn't show up in Germany.

Better late than never!

Spherocity Represents Florida

And for those in Germany: http://vimeo.com/18333352

Unfortunately due to travel schedules and last-minute craziness, we could only get two of us together for the battle. C.J.O. and I are joined in spirit, however, by the rest of the Spherocity troupe who all at one point lived in Gainesville, Fl: Shyft (Steve), Sky (Lei), Matrim (Matt), Zaphin (Jason), Tanuki (Courtney), and Kalraldun (Jacob). We'd also like to shout out to the other Florida CJers, including Mako (Seth), Ferret, and Kenny.

Because we couldn't get together many people in time, we used the wonderful Groovolution spin crew as a surrogate, led by the inimitable Heather Phoi.

p.s. Special thanks to Ryan, Mark, and Ed, whose styles have recently deeply influenced our own.

[I was having some uploading issues, so this low quality version is a stand-in until the nice one comes up. Audio blocked in Germany for the same amount of time.]

Don't care what the votes say, I'm right. :P

This isn't just about skills. This is a Battle of the Crews. The CJBOTY 2010. i wanna see a pack mentality. I want strength, solidarity, confidence and structure. people gotta bounce.

London KILLED IT. no one else quite had the level of team spirit those guys had, or the imagination.

and as a secret weapon, OMG NIKA!!! you've tapped into something special! Slow motion day today, methinks. :D :D :D

Florida had something special too. The group were nice and together, some lovely ideas, but lacked something. Florida makes a pretty boring background. everything looks the same.

Vancouver, you could tell they weren't a crew. they just weren't 'together'. They gave it a damn good shot, but they didn't know each other as well as they should have.

Aether, too much persona, not enough personality. Think crew, not theatre production team. the gauntlet to Ryan scores you extra points.

Was there another video?

Ace competition. Bristol has no Crew. Just a few choice jugglers doing their thing. I hope to change this fact. Then watch your backs, yo! next year. people going down!

Aww, the Brits are mad that nobody came 1000 miles to be a part of their crew :) West Coast represent!

Sorry Ed, but I am also always right so we're gonna have to cancel each other out and see where the votes take it. :)

In terms of manipulation skill, we could never win. This isn't a secret.
Luckily, we have style or we might be up Sh*t Creek without a paddle.

I have lots to say about your post Ed, but honestly I can't play the 'talk smack" game. BUUUUT originally this voting process was based on view counts, and for that reason, Vancouver wins :P

Ah, you might think that Dawn, but if you take a moment to add up all the view counts for the London video across Youtube, Vimeo & juggling.tv you'll discover that you are in fact...

...absolutely right :)

And Ed - we'll be expecting something great from you and the rest of Bristol for the next showdown. It'll need to be to make up for your cowardly retreat this time around ;)
