Look at the film starting at 1:30. If "CGI" isn`t blaring through your head, there is seriously something wrong. It`s so fake looking it`s unbelievable.

>Stop being ignorant.

You can see the photon mapping that was applied to achieve the "glass ball" effect in the film. Plus, if you go frame by frame, you can see the ball "jump" a little bit when his hand goes in front of it. See example: Glass Ball CGI Photon Mapping

The song is called `Remind Me` by the Norwegian band Röyksopp. It`s the same song from the `sensitive caveman` Geico commercials.

no its computer animated because the ball is in a brighter shade of white than the sky so its obviously animated

Obviously...

Because its not like RPGillespie DOESN`T know everything in the world... its not like there are still unknown talents and miracles* in the world like this.

*miracles in the "ZOMG thats amazing" sense, not like acts of god...

that was awesome... Its almost as though the balls don`t do the moving, its him!

Very cool and Graceful very awesome to see for sure. Though I don`t think that it is completely real, it was most likely the guy doing some really nice flowing "liquid" dancing then editted with the balls to flow with his movements. Which would still be very nicely done

When I read contact juggling I was expecting some body shots football style. This? Well it was just plain boring.

No he can`t. Because in the Labyrinth Bowie wasn`t doing the contact juggling, Micheal Moschen was the man who was doing it. He was standing behind Bowie, which means he couldn`t see what he was doing. Quite impressive if you ask me.

He`s not very good. David Bowie can do more than that, for goodness sake!

The more I look at it, the more it looks like moving your body AROUND the balls...more than actually "juggling". Very cool!

I think that is awesome...seen it done (in movie Labyrinth done by Michael Moschen)...I don`t know how hard it is to do but it looks great.
Very graceful !!

*Just to note*
These contact juggling balls are made of an acrylic/epoxy compound. So they are VERY durable and at the same time quite heavy. The whole point of contact juggling is to make the heavy ball look like it`s floating. And just a warning to those who want to try this. As I said they are quite durable and your tile floor will break before the ball does. I know this from experience. =)

WEIRD! I was actually playing with one of those no less than 30 seconds before I watched this movie. I used to work at a juggling/yo-yo store. He`s pretty good but he`s no michael moschen (he`s the guy who did all the contact juggling in Labyrinth)

I have been contact juggling for about 6 monthes but I`m still a noob. This guy is OK but certainly not the best out there. Most of the tricks he is doing are noob tricks. There really isint any advanced stuff in there.

Slick! That must take considerable practice.

I was hoping the credits would include the music, but they didn`t. Could somebody identify it for me? Many thanks!
