Here are my attempts:

#1 Catching boomerangs - I wanted to catch real boomerang during "flying phase" of spintop boomerang but after few attempts I realize that it's too hard for me  :D

#2 Precision - When I was at football pitch training for the first video, I had seen spot for good precision exercise

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqQa9ZIPJ8A

#3 Oldschool - I don't know if this is allowed for contest but I found old video from 2009 used for second Collective video.

Of course videos are not so funny as ta0's  ;D

We (me and Daniel) were also trying to throw boomerang from 6th floor in our flat and catch it on the ground but it was a bit harder that we think and none of attempts were successful (Daniel was catching the top  :)).

Nicely done! I can see that having both the boomerang and the top in the air at the same time and catching both would have been extremely difficult to nail. The name of that trick should be boomerang squared!

I can also imagine that catching a top dropping from the 6th floor can be dangerous!  :o
Is Daniel going to post his own boomerang videos?  ;)

This reminds me of the way I felt at Woodstock back in the '60's.  Wait, I never went to Woodstock.  Maybe this is what some people felt when they were at that concert?

I am sorry if I made you feel a little "psychedelic". Actually, while I was editing the video I started to feel dizzy. I am going on a trip tomorrow and I cannot film anymore, but the next step would have been to add fans to the camera as air brakes to slow down the spinning.

I think the interesting part is the start of the boomerang when you can see from the spintop point of view (on the slowmo) the flipping over  and then my hand pulling the rope.

Of course, really a high speed camera would be preferable. This was recorded at just 30 fps. I recorded another at 60 fps but the camera pointed away from me on the pull so it is less interesting.
