    Hi there! I am yo yo mundi!
    I found this trailer on Vimeo...
    https://vimeo.com/ondemand/worldonastring


    It's a documentary...the synopsis says "World on a String takes us into the world of competitive yo-yoing. Yo-yos are not just the nostalgic toys of a bygone era; they are equipment for competitive sport and intricate art. The film focuses on four players as they prepare for and take part in the World Yo-Yo Contest in America. It is a story of an close-knit underground community full of innovation, self expression, loss and friendship"...

    What do you think?

    Welcome, Yo Yo Mundi.

    The project's been known about for quite some time, but it took a while for the film to be finished and I think the initial hype it had in the yoyo community kind of died down. I haven't seen the whole thing, but the trailer looks really good and from what I've heard it is really well done.

    RIP YoMike

    Thank you for the quick answer, Yossarian! I have only just got into Yoyoing and heard about the film from a friend. I liked it, especially the Canadian guy and the little kid is amazing!

    Good to hear you enjoyed it. Jensen (the Canadian guy) is amazing, and his stuff is always great to watch. Definitely one of the more talented players yoyoing has ever seen. If you like watching him, there are some of his old videos on Youtube in addition to his contest freestyles. I think this was the first I saw from him, and it's still one of my favorite yoyo videos:



    I think the youngest player they focus on in the trailer is Andrew Bergen, if that's who you mean, who is also really good and has come up with some pretty creative stuff. There have been some really good kids who get amazingly good at a young age, like Takeshi Matsuura, who ended up winning the counterweight division that year, so he might be in the film at some point as well.

    RIP YoMike

    As you said it consists of all innovations in the string video.
