Title: New Feature: Video Of The Month
Post by: Michael Zernow on March 28, 2006, 11:13:15 PM
This forum has of late been seeing a lot of posts of other people's work, which is in no way a bad thing, it's really great that people use this place to help share videos with everyone that might not have seen them on other forums...but this is American Parkour, so we would like to see what is going on here in the US. So starting this April we will be having a Video of the Month feature, I will be selecting the top few videos that show up here in the forums and put them in a poll for all of you to vote on, the winner will receive a free APK shirt.

We all know there's a lot of talent out there so let's see what you can do, and remember like the POW, it's not just the skill level of the traceur that is being looked at, but also the quality of the film, so with this new PK season just waking up from the Winter get your cameras rolling and show us your stuff!

What if it's a group...?

Unfortunately still only one shirt, the group will have to decide who gets it. Maybe we do something where anyone in the group can buy one with $5 off or something, but we just can't afford to give away too many free shirts.

Well i think that we should just be able to email them the link to the video and if it is a finalist then we send them the hard copy of the movie through email. Also i do little runs that last like 30secs through 1 min. Will those be counted.They are a run not just one move i continuously move throughout the video.

Colby, hope this doesn't come across as harsh but you and your team need to slow down and focus on the basics allot. The landings were horrible beleive your joints will thank you later if you stop doing big drops, long jumps or anything that requires allot of flexion in your knee's untill you have built much stronger legs and improved your landings technique. Ever landing I saw in that video was dodgy lots of knees buckling in, or forwards. All your acrobatics are sloppy, I am gymnastics coach so I am might be biased but I think you would be much safer a progress faster if you saught some professional guidance.

Otherwise you guys seem like pretty talented begginers and really liked the woods parts, would love to go train out there. Good luck with your training.
