CONSISTENCY video competition!!!!!
« on: 21 September, 2011, 19:20:47 »
It's all too easy to just let that camcorder run all day, then make an edit out of the half dozen tough tricks that you landed.  Getting that triple lighthouse flip is really cool, but it ain't going to help in in a jam/ competition setting if you can only get it one in a hundred.  Consistency is a major part of kendama, so I hereby announce .......

The CONSISTENCY Video competition!

On Friday, I'm going to post up a ladder of ten tricks (this should give everyone a fair chance to get access to a camcorder).  The first person to post a perfect run of the ladder in this thread wins.  It's that simple.  So no editing, no cuts, no sneakiness, just a clean run of the ten tricks in order wins!

The winner gets......
1) A signed original piece of artwork from the masterpiece book "Knees!  Further Adventures in Kendama"
2) A LIFETIME supply of kendama beads (yes, a whole tub).
and most importantly...
3) The honour and right to create a new ladder of ten tricks for the next round

Competition is open to anyone, internationally, (yes, I'll pay the postage to get your prize to you :)

I thank you for your attention, cameras at the ready, watch this space .....

Okay, hope you've all had time to get your film studios set up......

Here it is, the first (of hopefully many) consistency challenge trick lists.  I've called this one "The Flying Hedgehog" due to the combination of air-named tricks and spikes.

THE FLYING HEDGEHOG

1  Spike
2  Bird
3  Spike
4  Bat
5  Spike
6  Faster than Gravity
7  Spike
8  Reverse Aeroplane
9  Spike
10  Aeroplane

Remember the rules: all tricks, in order, no cuts or sneaky edits.  First to post a video of it in this thread wins the artwork, the beads, the glory and the right to create and name the next consistency challenge.

All the best, and ........ away you go!

Donald

WE HAVE A WINNER!!!!!

The Flying Hedgehog has been conquered, congratulations, Sam!

So, please first of all take a breath, then message me your postal details and your prize will be in the post on Monday morning!

Your next challenge is to think up a ten trick ladder and throw it up on this thread.  You can make it as hard, easy or weird as you want, that's part of your prize.

Pretty damn fast, who will be next????

Donald

PS  I'll put up another piece of art as a prize for the next ladder, just to keep the ball rolling..... D

To my surprise, I managed to hit the Hedgehog first time, but not on camera. Well done Sam, and thanks Donald for setting it all up. I'm looking forward to the next one.
