A bit of catchup. I just realized I never posted these here.

This was an April 1st spin session as my alter ego Darth BunBun. It was also the second outing of my drone used to record it. The general rule of thumb here: Beware the parks and open spaces. The dark side is sometimes caught frolicking.

These next two are older videos I revisited with some cheap filters I just found. Expect these filters to be an option in this yearís Spin Wars.

Paying no nevermind to the freakout factor of a 6 foot bunny with a lightsaber(which is pretty awesome)- those filters are pretty rad, too🤘🏻 also a fan of that rainbow trail one, DC!

Just some slow and smooth spins on my crossguard and Menace.  Nothing complicated,  I just felt like showing it doesnít have to be break neck speeds to look good.  Keeping a uniform speed and executing smooth transitions can look really awesome!

 Smoooooove and stylish, Sam!🤙🏻 thanks for yet more work with your cross guard!  And your staff work is always enjoyable😁 I think i dig the slower speed stuff with the dark backdrop the best- itís almost like thereís a super-friendly lightsaber hovering around you😄

Go Sam! Since I'm just getting over an arm injury, I started to use my sabers for the first time in a few weeks last night.
I can ONLY go slow due to the injury, so it's nice to see others doing the same. You still look faster than me when I was going full speed, I think because you are so much smoother.
You rock! Thanks for sharing your awesomeness. Smiley

So very jealous of that menace staff Sam...

DC, I showed Keira ( my daughter ) the Darth BunBun video and you are now a household name.

This is one from the vault, cleaning out all the old video's in preparation for upcoming projects. Anyway, if you have ever seen any of my sword, staff or empty hand freeform video's, there is a good chance you've seen the " skeleton ". I use it mostly for range control. When I was trained with the Staff/Spear, we would use structures like this to force tighter angles/flourishes. Limbs can actually be added to it as well. This one is a very basic version of something we used at the Academy.

Nice. Love the FX (I haven't spent the money on those ones, I just use the free ones Tongue). I think the only time I've seen the "skeleton" was in a video you did testing out an US blade. I wouldn't mind building me one sometime.

 First videos ever. Lets start with the excuses shall we? Wink Here we go!
I had been up the entire night and was about to go to sleep when my best friend sent me a video of his newborn son, Kenzo.
He asked me to send him a lightsaber video in return (how could I say no to that).
The reason I'm explaining what I'm doing in the video is because he knows nothing about this stuff other than the movies and I'm also just showing off the sabers because I'm trying to get him to buy one. I know, I know, plum FLOWER, but I kept saying BLOSSOM. I'm adding a spin at the top anyway so I don't even know what you call that. I have only been over my arm injury for about two days so it's super sloppy and I was falling into that trap of switching hands and then switching right back.
Also This is my third attempt at dual wielding (as you can see from the slop transition where I smack my blades together). I also hit my leg more than a couple times, and a chair that is off screen.
There is one curse word so I will just put the link. And the Harlem Globetrotter move was just to make him laugh. Wow! That is a lot of excuses.
I have performed as a DJ hundreds of times in front of hundreds of people at a time, but showing you guys my attempts at spinning is way more nerve wracking. I'm also 5 days sober. I promise less excuses from now on. I just felt like if I didn't post something soon I never would. Thank you Cephalus and Venturous. If it weren't for you guys I wouldn't even be able to attempt any of this.

Itís about time, Gar!!😁 honestly dude- looking good!  Your dual wield is smoother than anything iíve attempted yet, and your left hand seems to play along with your right much better than mine(pardon the envy there😜).  Keep it up!

That was not bad at all. Way smoother than you were making it out to be.
