Maverick Slackline UK Champs 2011

This one comes directly from Maverick Slacklines Ian Jennings himself. Astounding bouncing from the ‘slackers, I think you’ll agree. Watch, go pimp it, buy a slack… get flipping. Smashing:

Ooo hello.

I’ve not been here in a while. And neither have you. Hooray. This means I can delete the entire site and no-one will care!

I’m really enjoying having no active community here, this entire site is now a case study for me and my work. Smashing. However I’m struggling with the concept of letting it die.

I think I will fill it with adverts and try and scrape £20 a month out of Google Analytics.

I’d also consider handing the site over to someone else, maybe as a co-author, co-owner etc. Anyways. I’ve more work to do. Mark

Trickers: Terrible Acting, Directing & Andrea Catozzi

Whilst I’ve been away busy for the past month or so a big fat number of great videos have had to be ‘marked as read’ as I just haven’t been able to get round to them. Today, whilst holed up in a hotel in Crawley, I managed to catch latest… and as everyone knows, I’m a big fan of his stuff.

However… one thing I hate is trickers and flippers trying to be something that they are not good at. Namely: directing & acting and particularly recreating fight scenes. Most flippers can barely do filming and editing well… why chuck another couple of layers on top of the workload that makes the job even harder and weakens the already struggling routine? I don’t get it.

Anyways… so when I saw that Andrea produced, directed and edited this video, I had my head in my hands. However, at least it’s not acting out a script. It is however showing Andrea at his best (and aparently happiest) displaying his creative movement, loosely held together with a hint of storyline (As if Jason Bourne could dance?).

So, this is good, its filmed really well, edited to the music excellently and doesn’t try and be anything than it is – creative movement set to a good audio.

It’s Art baby… if you don’t understand it… accept you have a gap in your knowledge and move it. Check it… then go leave the man some thumbs up:
