YoYoRecreation put together a solid video of their team at the 2013 World YoYo Contest…beautifully shot and edited, and top-notch play from one of the best contest teams in the world! Featuring Yusuke Otsuka, Izuru Hasumi, Ryota Ogi, Iori Yamaki, Yasuki Tachibana, Minato Furuta, Naoto Okada, Tatsuya Fujisaka, Akitoshi Tokubuchi, Samm Scott, Ahmad Kharisma, and Ryosuke Iwasawa, with a special appearance by the Rosen Plaza carpet.
You can call this “beautiful” if you really want, but seriously they are using the wrong lens here. The depth of field looks very professional, yes, but the shots are too tight and I am perturbed by the distance the yo-yo tends to go out of frame. We can see the player’s face, shirt, hands, or maybe the yo-yo in any given shot. Please pick one and stick to it. This style of cinematography was very frustrating to watch, for me at least.
