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.
