Thanks agian Dale. No doubt Raiders of the Lost Ark, played a large part in getting me started with whips, as it did with many of today's whip crackers. However I started a couple years after Raiders came out. In fact it was around the time of The Temple of Doom when I actually started getting serious about it. (so that would be closer to 14 years ago)
Defiantly try out that Pole trick when you get a chance, I think you will find it helpful. Not only will it give you a more reliable target holder, but it also works well for performing wrap arounds.
I remember the making of Batman Returns. Anthony DeLongis did a couple neat tricks during his segment. If you liked that performance, you would really like " The Art of the Bullwhip". There are some things in that tape that are outstanding.
By the way, have you had a chance to check out the Bullwhip FAQ at http://www.juggling.org/help/circus-arts/bullwhip.html. If not you might want to check it out, there is some good helpful information there, including a few AVIs you can download. Talk to you Later, take care.
