uniing vid of... ME!!

hey everyone. heres a 9 second video of some stuff i did about a month ago. this is the style i'll be riding in my video (Monkeylamp) that will be coming out by the end of next summer. this filming session was basically just to break in my new unicycle though... im hoping that what i have in there wont be good enough to put in the video. its a very small picture, but it's good enough to see what im doing. tell me what you think of it!! and give me any tips on my technique please! thanks, Kevin

That's amazing!!! What's the biggest drop you've done? I'm really looking forward to seeing the rest of the video. Thanks a lot for posting that.

Those drops are quite impressive! You must go through a lot of parts
though.


Cheers,

Those are some cool drops, but no hops?!? How high can you hop? I liked the last one, drop to ride, and immediate other drop, as well as the gap over the parking barrier thing. Cool

Nice drops! I agree, the hop over the barrier thing was cool.

hey guys. ive got a 3 minute video right now, but most of it is just small stuff. as you can see it was pretty snowy a month ago and its even worse now, so i cant ride much. as for hops - i was trying one thing where i had to hop about a foot and a half onto something, then gap over a garden and then drop about 3 and a half feet. it was freezing that day so i couldnt get it. and no cocky skaters were there to make me mad and pump me up.

what my goal for mankeylamp is is to indroduce a style that does pretty much what i did in that video, except with tricks and such while im doing it. you know, 360 no foot wheel grabs (im being optimistic) well maybe i can get those with some practice, but you get what im saying. if you guys can be patient, then i will have a trailer for monkeylamp probably half way through the summer and then it will come out at the end of the summer.

so if the stuff in monkeylamp is gonna be as good and better as what was in that short video, how many of you would buy it?

Kevin

i'd buy it almost certainly. its nice to see videos of unicyclists closer to most peoples standard. it means theres tricks people might have a chance of doing. cos when i watch stuff like universe i'm like, why do i bother, i'm crap.
if it has a good soundtrack as well then the video would be a big success.

um... as for a soundtrack, i havent contacted any bands yet. whats on the short video there i believe are sections of "my life story" by MXPX, "bouncing off the walls" by Sugarcult, and "Boom" by POD. i have no idea what will be on the actual video, but probably a pretty good assortment of styles. some punk, ska, some alternative, rock, probably a classical of some sort. im gonna try to get in anything i can so people will buy monkeylamp. i asked in a previous thread what pople wanted to hear and i got ska, and people saying a bit of everything.

so i'll do my best to make this video for you guys, see ya, Kevin
