Half dance, half juggling, half mime, half magic....I'm a contact juggler, not a mathematician

Posted: Fri Nov 09, 2007 2:43 pm    Post subject: my first video

I just worked out how to use windows movie maker this week and as a learning tool i made a video of me trying to fit some contact to music. After watching myself i can see how i should practice in a mirror more, but since im not shy i've posted the video up on youtube to share with you all.

Ive been doing contact for about a year now and would really appreciate any feedback.

Its great man. Its slow, steady, easy to see eerything that you are doing. I would say experiment some more. You seem to love the isolations which look great, but add some rolls in there just to mix thing up.

I only saw the Prair wiper's, Mix it up some more. Add some arm rolls, every now and then, a couple stalls.

Or keep with what you have and add a second sphere into the routine for your iso's.

You are doing great. And I am very impressed.

Contact juggling is a disease, to which there is no cure. It is a poem of which each movement is a word. If you CJ with your heart, your body will follow.

indeed, I am very impress too.

I really like the shiny ending and your tempo -not too fast and not too slow-

You chose a very relaxing music, it's nice and peacefull to watch.

Practising in front of a mirror could be a good ideal to stabilize your isolation... you're almost there!!

Nice work

(and I smile once in a while could bring something interresting)

Hey it's Rare Bird, is that off the Erol Alkan Bugged in Selection? I practice to that a lot my self. I recommend for you three videos, Ed's nice-olayshuns

Colin's Ice-O-Relations

And furet's Flower's video

Hope they give you some isolation inspiration.
Now all gatherymost to amuse it and have a tilty elbow or a nice cuffle-oteedee - Oh Yes!

Good Job, some nice moves in there, sad as I am I really liked the end where the sunlight hits the ball it looks so cool.

thank you all for watching, and for your comments.

Yea i should really put more moves in it to make it more interesting, the isolations are the newer moves that i have been trying to learn, and ive neglected older tricks.

that is Rare Bird from Erol Alkans album, the second CD is really chilled and really nice to practice to. (Erol is DJing in lincoln on the 30th, yay!)

I really like the Flowers video, more so because isolations look much better with clear balls i think and the song is just ace.

I spend most of my time standing far enough back to dodge the sunlight, but i love the effect when it hits the ball. I was trying to video a iso palmspin in it for a few tries earlier, but it never looked right.

Ill definitely put another video up soon and take all your comments on board when i make it. It may be a little while as ive strained my index finger, presumably acylic related =/

edit - I will also try smiling next time - i look a right mardy bugger!
