Hey everyone! It’s time to announce the winners for the Scales x YoYoNews video contest! Thanks to everyone who submitted a video. It was great to see the different approaches for the contest and there was some great stuff submitted.
1st place goes to: Zach Gustafson! “Standoff” was beautifully filmed with great colors and use of angle changes. The premise is admittedly a little cheesy, but we play with yo-yos so I’m glad Zach took a lighthearted approach toward his submission. Plus, it made me laugh. Is there anything else you can really ask from a yo-yo video?
2nd place goes to: Daniel Predka! “The Lost Interlude” had some really gorgeous shots in the forest and really smooth tricks. Daniel had excellent use of slow-motion by pairing it with slower sections of the song. Overall I think it was maybe a little over-edited (really high contrast in some of the shots) but I thought it was a really complete package overall.
3rd place goes to: Wildan Furqon! “99% fun 1% skill” is also filmed in a forest (apparently I have a thing for yo-yo videos in forests). You can tell that the three players are all good friends and they have a good mix of tricks and styles. Plus they even threw in some 3A in there!
