I just published Episode 1 of my Yo-Yo Show, Learn to Throw It was a little shorter than anticipated, I thought it could go for about ten minutes but it ended up being four minutes long. I focused on a trick I’ve been getting asked to do a tutorial for lately, the Montgomery Twist. I would really appreciate it if I could get some constructive criticism on the video, just leave it in the comments below the video so it’s all in one place.
“Episode 1: Michael introduces the Learn to Throw Yo-Yo Show, how to hold and throw a yo-yo correctly, and the trick Montgomery Twist.”
I don’t really know how it can get much better… Just maybe teach a couple more tricks or maybe have a friend teach one of their tricks on the show as a special guest along with your tricks too. Or maybe throw in a peice or yoyo news. But I don’t know because the show is allready awesome just the way it is!
p.s. I really liked the intro you had for the show, it looked really cool!
I have not been yoyoing for a super long time (August this year) but I have watched a bunch of tutorials of tricks. And in my opinion that is one of the best tutorials I have seen. Just the fact that you talk to explain it and not have paragraphs of text is one of the huge things that makes it awesome. One thing to improve on that I think you could take from Andre’s videos is just have your friend Cody farther back so that the camera gets you and the yoyo. Maybe zoom in if it’s a more technical part of a trick. But it felt kind of awkward to me. If I am the only one who thinks that don’t change it just for me.
But I would like to say thank you for doing something like this. It is a great addition to the community. Keep up the good work.
I think I’d have to see it to understand what is happening; there is a possibility there are a couple too many wraps and the string is catching on itself. It’s possible the yo-yo somehow ended up going through one of the loops you hold in each hand as you flip the yo-yo around (though this one is unlikely). I’ve never stumbled across this catch personally. If you have a camera and can film the problem and upload it I’d love to troubleshoot with you to figure it out
JamesOfYoyo: Thanks! I’ll add in an extra trick next week and we’ll go from there, I’m trying not to overlap with StringBurnLive too much, but if there ever is news at the beginning of a week or right after a show of theirs so it missed their news segment I’d feel comfortable talking about it then We’ll just play it by ear! Thanks again!
d4qk0n3: Thanks for the tip! I’ll pick up some different color strings at the store this week and we can experiment with them in episode 2
funkyman50: I’m glad you enjoyed the episode so much! Next week cody and I will be moving the show into my family’s shop that is much longer and will give us more space to work with. We’ll also record a few different angles. It’s hard for me to add them in with windows movie maker so I’m going to try and get roxio to work on my laptop again That one let you mix and match video with audio
mamonga: Hehe, I’m very excited! I would have been happy if 1 person watched it, this is just amazing
