When Wes Peden released the short juggling film Expectations, we were hoping it would be the first of many similar projects. It looks like our dreams have come true! Wes just released a new short film titled “Plaid.”
Here’s how he describes the film:
Plaid is a collection of juggling inventions and compositions made from the love of weird catches and style conscious throws. The film covers many controversial topics such as flipping, up catching, under the leg and backcross desegregation in relation to five club juggling, and what exactly the edition of purple handles has on modern 3 club juggling.
We are excited to see how Wes delivers his unique, art-infused juggling style in this new venture.
The juggling subculture has benefited a lot from reality TV. Mostly from variety shows like America’s Got Talent. Here’s a rare and funny glimpse of juggling on American Idol where one hopeful singer uses his devil stick skills to try to get Randy, Paula, Simon and Jewel to notice his singing. Needless to say, it doesn’t work very well.
