Discmania Instructional Video Series

Postby JHern » Wed Apr 04, 2012 4:21 pm

A crew from Discmania came to California last month and met up with Avery at La Mirada. They shot tons of film, with the aim of putting out a big series of instructional videos that will be available on youtube for free. They just released a trailer...

GREAT!!! But what are the never before seen camera angles cough :-) ?
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Good question!

He told me about this a while back, and I've been looking forward to seeing it come to fruition. I asked him about the flake-factor, and he said they were on the ball and kicking ass in the video editing progress, indicating that we won't have to wait too much longer for the first episodes to come out.

Wow, nice production quality.

One thing I would change is all the background music and driving around in a car and other movement and stuff going on while talking about "the most important part of putting..." It distracts from that main, critical, point. It is much better to fade to black, stop the music, and inscribe the words across the screen as they are spoken by Jussi, and then drive it home with a close-up shot of the hit point.

Anyone been keeping up w these? I'd link to the 2nd one if I wasn't on my crappy phone.

I think it's interesting how Avery talks about not letting your wrist move on a backhand drive. Is this his way of achieving wrist bounce?

Yup. Not curling your wrist naturally springs it.
