Ever since the dawn of online circus video, two projects stand out for their level of quality, fresh perspective, visual style and high production values. The first was GIOCOLERIA.ORG‘s series of high-quality releases including the astounding full-length Imperfect Cirquel and Emispheres.
The second project is from VisionBot. Entitled VSNBT MNPLTN SRS, this series of high-quality short films feature some astoundingly original ideas in modern juggling and manipulation. This stuff utterly floored me… my mouth has been hanging open in amazement for the past few days.
From the Site:
Visionbots latest film project is a series of art/manipulation short films called VSNBT MNPLTN SRS. We are going to release four parts. They will all be released here free to download. Each piece is a collaboration between one juggler, one filmmaker and one musician. Showing one performer with a certain prop in each film (Elias Hedlund with clubs for example) All the ideas are discovered at the locations and after editing the music has been specially written. Our purpose with this project is to inspire the new scene of object manipulation. Enjoy!
Currently there are 3 high-quality downloads in the series. If you are at all interested in funky new material, this series is a must see. VisionBot gets a standing ovation from me.
I think i’m going to have to go out an buy their 9-1 Nordic Objects DVD now.
