New 25 minute juggling film from Arjan Groenendijk:

The editing is done by Martijn Halekor and the music is provided by Bas Septer (Substrate). The collaborative effort between these three creators has resulted in a 25 minutes long diabolo film. The 10 chapters contain Arjan’s unique diabolo manipulations and innovative, technical diabolo juggling.

Download the full video at arjangroenendijk.nl

Only € 5 for a dose of inspiration (not to mention funding a very talented artist)

HOLY CRAP THIS LOOKED LIKE AN UNBELIEVABLE WORKSHOP! GOOD JOB ED & BISHOP!!!!!!

Elsie on ContactJuggling.Org just posted:

Here it is guys, ten whole minutes of video goodness!

Just a few words to everyone involved with this. Firstly a huge thank you to Ed and Aragorn for sharing your techniques and ideas. Secondly, a huge thank you to everyone else for putting up with me shoving a camera in your face while you are going through the sometimes very vulnerable stages of learning.

It’s been a massive project for me. I got ten hours of footage, and have watched every minute of it over and over, trying to find the best clips that capture the mood, environment, and the people.  [...] :D

Turn the volume up and enjoy.

Excellent editing, *round of applause* for Elsie.

The Jamaica song from Futurama. Features a 3 object cascade as well as cigar box style manipulations.. and they actually animate it properly (rather than the silly/impossible circular shower pattern that normally is used whenever a cartoon needs to show someone juggling)!
