This guy is like the guy that takes flowerstix as seriously as Marcus Furtner takes devilsticks. He’s so good at it, it doesn’t even seem possible.

You know, Me and Drew were saying there weren’t any good videos coming out, and then like three come along at once… Time to eat our words.

This one is totes spesh. Shot by some guy with a sweet camera and edited by none other than Ori Roth. It’s exactly what you want out of a juggling video, a sweet cameraman with a good eye and then a juggler to edit it, since he knows all about the jugglings.

Featuring everyone you ever wanted to see doing club manipulation (Jordaan, Sander, Lestage (The juggler from Psy)) and then some ball juggling. Ball juggling by the likes of Stefan Sing (!). There is so much win on this video that the word win doesn’t contain enough win to describe it.

Directed and shot by Ben Hopper http://THEREALBenHopper Edited by Ori Roth http://www.youtube.com/Aiyegbeni

I totally schedules this for later, so if it gets posted up by someone else before. Not my problems. I was totes first.

A promo for a circus full of lumberjacks, er sorry, Canadians. All the guys have at least a level 4 beard and in general it’s awesome. It features much silliness and quite a few hardcore circus skills.

Literally cannot believe my EYES. If this film is CGI I don’t care cos it does make me strangely happy.

Time to search ebay for “Giant Electromagnet.”

This video is called: F5 2011 RE:PLAY Film Festival: Inductance – Apparently it was created for some festival with a theme of happy.

Happy it is. All those exclamation marks are entirely necessary.

Has this been on Ministry before? Well if not, this is my favourate lightbulb manipulation video. I didn’t think you could do ballet with lightbulbs. I was wrong.

Look what you can do with Sil-x and Sil-x implosions.
Also, I think MoM needs some new speakers.

Students from the circus school in Bordeaux, Dorian Thevenet, Boris Couty, Dimitri Rizelo, strun Lucas, Bruno Samon, Maxime Sales and Tom Lacoste, clearly put a lot of effort into making this video, great filming, great skills. and great use of white powder. ACE.
The spin on the unicycle (4:40) and the 2 toe spin on skates (5:40) stand out for me.
Thanks Maelle for the link. Smiles, Drew

This is the competitive sport of sepak takraw (literally translated: “kick ball”), as demonstrated by players from Thailand.

The Sepak Takraw Association of Canada has some good info on the international history of this sport.

Contactjuggling.org Collaboration Video 2011

Here it is, our 2011 collaboration video.
Contact Juggling, an ancient art recently codified and popularized by Michael Moschen, is as indefinable as it is magical. Rather than try to describe it, the community of ContactJuggling.org began this project to show you how each of us sees Contact Juggling. Whether dance, juggling, mime, or magic (or perhaps all four or none at all), this video showcases years of hard work by artists across four continents, each bound together by a common interest but all unique in their study.
