Round I - Roonablo

Post by expert » 16 Nov 2005, 20:56

Each judge must answer all of the following questions:
- How advanced were the tricks in this video?
- Was there a good variety of tricks?
- Were there enough tricks in the video or was it uneventful?
- Was was the most advanced combo?
- How does this video compare to 3 (or more) other clips from the competition in terms of complexity of tricks (combos)?
Unless you use complete sentences and describe your opinion fully, you will be disqualified from judging. Do not say whether you like the video or not.

1. The tricks on a scale of ten in difficulty would be about 6 or 7, advanced, but not as advanced as other vids.
2. There was a good array of tricks here, very innovative and doesnt copy anyone in particular.
3. Just the right amount of tricks, it kept me interested throughout. A tad long though.
4. Going from neck stall to chest stall and back again, a lot of upper body stalls, but very little lower body combos.
5. The complexity of tricks involved was a lot better than at least 4 or 5 of the other video's as it was creative, he's not afraid to try anything.

1. the tricks ranged from easy to semi advance. basic stuff but then through in some advance stuff that looked sweet.
2. there was a good variety of tricks. not too many of one or the other. except in the end with the ball stalled at his a little ridiculece.
3. the video was very entertaining and never got boring. he through his some little funny stuff that helped the video out too. made you laugh.
4. upper body stalls showed his advance level. good set ups though.
5. hes up there with the top. he has great entertainment value and he can pull off some amazing and unique tricks.

1. He showed mostly stalling tricks that although are very original, rank between medium to advanced.
2. There was a lot of variety within his range. He also threw in a tiny amount jugging (TATW at 0:51 sec)
3. The clip was of good length but there wasn't one trick that really stood out.
4. At 3:04 he showed a long footstall combo which was more awkward than advanced (I think he touched some poop with his hand at 3:17). The rest of his clip consisted mostly of individual tricks.
5. Although entertaining and original, the video wasn't as complicated as what other showed. If Roonablo wants to do a strictly upperbody video his upperbody should be superior to all lowerbody freestylers in the competition. But it's not. For example, Roonablo did a knee to neckstall trick at 1:30. SuperSyed did the same thing but transitioned into it from an elaborate combo. Another example is Owen4Ever's video where he did a few upper body tricks that were just as advanced as Roonablo's (like the side headstall)
