Yoyo Tricks – The Freshman

It is the first day of school.  I have my books, backpack, lunch, school clothes and yoyo.  You meet your teachers, find your classes and meet new friends as well as reunite with old ones.  Everything feels fresh, new and exciting.  This is the inspiration to the yoyo trick in the video.

I named the trick The Freshman because when I do the trick, it feels fresh, new, exciting and even a little cheeky, LOL.  Seriously, I looked at this video and thought to myself, I look like a freshman during his first day of school.

The yoyo in the video is a plastic yoyo by Yoyo Factory called the Yoyo Factory Protostar.
I like this yoyo because even though it is plastic, it plays like a metal yoyo.

Yoyo Tricks – Everything Is Cooler In Slow-mo even Vanilla Mint

This video is different from the ones we posted before.  We visited a friend of my Dad in his production studio and I was blown away.  Actually my Dad was blown away because between him and I, he is the one who geeks over video equipment 🙂

In the studio, we shot video of tricks from different angles and scenes but mostly outdoors.  This one was the only one we shot indoors.

The setup was fairly simple, there were two side lights and a black backdrop as the background.  At first I thought, hmmm this is different.  But it was not until I saw the video footage that made me realize how cool the shot was.

You know I cannot name yoyo tricks and in fact, I am one of those players that says it is just a combo.  But since this video is full of new things, lighting, background, indoor video footage, the music, I am going to name it.  Let me call this combo Vanilla Mint, because it is cool and refreshing like the breath mints sitting on my desk 🙂

My favorite mints sitting on my desk.

The trick itself is straight forward but technical in nature.  It involves string slack control, speed control, and finishes with a picture trick.  As if the shot was not cool enough, when I was editing it, I saw something that made it cooler, slow motion.

Yoyo Tricks – Fall Throwing

In this video, I am showing yoyo tricks using the Caribou Lodge Yoyo Works Orca or CLYW Orca.  I got this yoyo from YoyoBestBuy a while back.  Not sure they have it anymore, but check out the link for yourself.

The yoyo came in various cool colors with abstract patterns.  I got the gold one looks like the this below.

It looks pretty cool when you spin it because the red spaltter blends in with the gold.  Here is how mine looks when I spun it around that day.

The weather in Brentwood was great the day I shot the video.  So I took the Orca in the back yard and took it for a spin, performing yoyo tricks and combos.

I Can’t name Yoyo Tricks

 

After making my Yoyoer’s Point of View video, I realized that I didn’t have any videos showcasing any of my new tricks from the front view, so in this video, I am showcasing the tricks from my Yoyoer’s Point of View video, from the front point of view!!! The yoyo used was the YoyoFactory SHU-TA.

The reason I named this video I Can’t Name Yoyo Tricks is because most yoyoers make a ton of combos but when ever somebody asks them what they are called, they say “They don’t have names.” I’m one of those people.

Yoyo Tricks – Yoyoer’s Point Of View

This video shows what doing yoyo tricks looks like from my point of view. I made this video because I wanted to give people outside the yoyo world the experience of yoyoing from a “Yoyoer’s Point Of View.” The yoyo used in this video was the YoyoFactory Aviator 2.

I chose to use the YoyoFactory Aviator 2 for this video because I intentionally shot this video in the morning.  That said, the gold color of the Yoyo really reflects the mornig light very well.

The yoyo tricks performed in the video were new combos I worked on for a few weeks, specific to the video.  The combos were from tricks I learned over time and further refined.

One Year – YoyoFactory Dream

One year after the launch of my YouTube Channel LorenzYo Cubing, I decided to do a “One Year Video.” I purposed the video to thank you, my subscribers for supporting my channel. It was also a good opportunity for me to capture how I have grown as a yoyo player after one year.

The yoyo I used in the video is the YoyoFactory Dream. Below is the actual yoyo I used.

Taking the theme from the name of the yoyo, I setup the scenes as if I was dreaming. You will see some of my friends in the video, goofing around and having fun.

The tricks were new at the time and were full of quick throws.  Please enjoy the video and share, like and subscribe.
