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.
Check out “The Freshman” and let me know what you think and leave a comment. Also feel free to Like and Share.
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 🙂
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.
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.
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.
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.
