Fire Hurricane/Tri-Staff video

I have been a video editing MACHINE! This video is from the 2013 Kansas City Renaissance Festival. The fire tools are called Hurricanes, or Tri-Staves. Our friend Goliath developed them, and they were a lot of fun. They can be used much like contact staves - Cyricx has pulled off steve rolls, conveyor belts, and even a Matrix. They also have an added quality of being able to "break" planes in unexpected ways; you can grab any two spokes and twist the third, and it goes in a completely different direction. Unfortunately we don't use them much anymore due to some durability issues, but that's an even better reason to get this video out there.
