This one totally slipped by us…our favorite comment troll, Ben Gates, filmed a short documentary on modern yoyoing…on 16mm, no less! Looks like it was shot at last year’s MA State YoYo Contest. From the video description:
An exploration of modern yo-yoing as a form of visual communication. Produced for Documenting Visual Culture IN 374. Filmed on a 16mm Bolex camera at MA States 2012 and Z-Games 2013.
Featuring the tricks of Alex Lozyniak, Michael Ferdico, James Lowell, Tyler McCallumore, Grant Johnson, Eric Koloski, Mark Mangarin, Elliot Jackson, Nick DeValpine, Matt Burkhead, Andrew Maider, Andrew Bergen, and CJ Atkinson.
Special Thanks to Kathryn Ramey, Rob Todd, Cass Marks, and Steve Baldwin at National Boston. No thanks to CineLab, because they suck.
