watching all the youtube videos these days, i notice most people don't just do one trick- it looks like they have a main trick in mind that they want to nail in each "scene" and then they have maybe a start connected to that trick, maybe one trick before the main trick, and then they do the trick, and then kind of as quickly as possible come to some sort of ending.
so its almost like a mini-sequence, but super super short, and the material after the main trick is usually super random and its very clear they were done earlier but they are jamming for the video, hoping to get lucky in case they nail something else cool to make the edit a little bit longer. of course some of this style comes from wes peden youtube clips back in the day, which gets into the territory of people walking to and from starting the camera, dropping all the props at the end, etc. etc.
what i'm wondering is, does the inherent nature of youtube itself make this sort of rhythm where jugglers start to have a sequence but then not really? or is it more from the current juggling zeitgeist of putting tricks online? i know i watch so many videos and the juggler starts with one or two connected tricks and i'm just getting into it, starting to imagine where it will go next but they have already stopped… or dropped everything and are walking towards the camera.
with the digital editing techniques available, why doesn't everyone just clip together trick after trick after trick, with no "filler"? is it to edit the material together to a certain song length? i don't buy the argument that its because they just aren't thinking about it at all, because you have to edit the video either way… and intentionally leave in the material around the "key" tricks. and also it looks like they are already thinking in this direction during filming?
