Hi,

I will be editing this year's forum collaboration video[1].
I invite any and all forum members to submit video clips for inclusion.

RULES
1. You must be a forum member here. (It's free to join, and everyone is welcome to join.)
2. Any skill level is welcome….
3. … but, HD preferred, and minimum resolution of 640x360 please. (Sorry, but it's 2014, y'know.) If you really don't have a device that can shoot that, well, I bet you have a friend who does.
4. Film in Landscape , not Portrait , not Square .
5. Please try to keep the clips fairly short. As a guide, anything over 20 seconds is quite long in a compilation video.
6. Upload your clips to your own hosting, or a site like dropbox/wetransfer/mediafire, etc etc, and send me a forum DM with the link. Any file format except WMV please. (If you can really ONLY do WMV, then please upload your file as a *hidden video* to YT ("unlisted"), Vimeo or Juggling.tv (Private), and send me the link, and I will use the highest quality converted file from there.)
7. Please use a filename like: [YourForumUsername]-Collab-1.mp4 . You will be credited in the video with your Forum username. Let me know if you want your real name used as well (in brackets).
8. DON'T talk online about what trick(s) you have submitted, and don't show your clips to anyone else. It will spoil the surprise of the final video. (But you are welcome to add to the hype by saying things like "I've submitted to the collab video, woo! Exciting!", of course, just not about what trick you've submitted.)
9. You can submit more than one clip, but I do not guarantee that I will use more than one clip per person.
10. Multi-person clips are fine too. (Only forum members will be credited.)
11. Submission deadline is 23:59GMT, Saturday May 31st, 2014.

GUIDELINES
- Please don't add any effects/zooms/music to your clips.
- While I will NOT reject any tricks because they are "too easy", I may decide not to use a clip if the video quality is too poor. I want a good looking compilation video! So, take your time to film in good lighting (Outdoors! Go Outdoors! Outdoors!).
- Have a think about all the things in your clip apart from "the trick". So: the lighting, the scenery, the shot composition, the contrast between your clothing and the kendama/string, your presentation/style, your character in the clip, etc. Something as simple as a smile can make a clip stand out.

BONUS FOR SUBMITTERS!
If one of your clips is included in the final video, you will be entered into a prize draw. Prizes are not yet decidedSee this post for details of the prizes, but there will be better prizes available for BKA members than for non-BKA members.  :)

You have 3 months! I look forward to seeing what you all come up with. Let's make it a great one this year!

Cheers,
Void

If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

I don't know which trick I'll do, but there are some nice new graffitis near my house, so I know I'll record it there.

I'll try and get something done as well. Next month, I start my field work in the forest, hopefully with a good background as a result.
Also, three months? That means the BKO is included? Maybe we could get an in-the-flesh collaboration on video.
Kendama Belgium!

I've decided which trick I'm going to do. It is going to be a tough one (for my level) and I also know the background I want.

Let's see if I can make time for that this weekend :)
