Furet – EJC 2008 – Eccentrics Hoop Routine

From the 2008 EJC, Furet (Nicolas Longuechaud) from Paris presents a new piece of isolation performance with rings which makes me smile. I liked it enough that I made a cheesy fan poster to hang on my wall.
greatest of the hoop isolationists
Cheers to Furet for the ministry credit in the video. We remember him when he was just a kid on some internet forum 😉 Be sure to check out : Other Furet videos you haven’t seen yet!

Ministry Workshop – Contact Juggling in Canada 2009 : Official Release

Contact Juggling in Canada

I (Ryan Mellors) edited most of this series in the passenger seat while Dawn drove the car; admiring the scenery in between stops at Tim Hortons (where we would recharge on caffeine and latop power) and late-night diners. We drove 2000 miles through a slowly changing landscape, our car loaded with balls of all sizes, hoops, tetrahedrons, bendy sticks, half-spheres, blocks and a video camera. Our objective: build the community, find others like us and explore what this ‘contact juggling’ thing is all about. Shoot lots of video and get to Montreal without running out of money.

Thanks to all who came to the workshops and to all the supportive musicians who offered music for the project. Today marks the official release of the series; 9 short videos documenting the journey. Click below for the videos (RT: 38min,) descriptions and prop contents, as well as a download link in 720×480 .wmv.

Brian Thompson and Matt McCorkle, top Conspiracy field agents, have been in deep cover at the vulcan studios for the last three months gathering evidence and preparing their outrageous discoveries for public consumption. This is their first official report.
