Extremely unique and much needed production of a personal character short film on Flinch the clown horror canine. Mucho props to WaitWaitFixate, a dear buddy of mine who never disappoints in video making and makes me feel like crud for not getting on that shit already. I know he wants to stop filming furries but man when he comes out with new and better ideas like this, I almost wanna beg him to stay! Please subscribe to him on youtube!
If any of you followers of FYF remember in the summer, I raved about how Flinch was one of the most unique and jaw dropping dancers at Anthrocon in terms of unique style and just completely using the dance and music to match his original character.
I was stoked to hear that Flinch won first place at Rainfurrest recently(although I haven’t watched all the dances yet, please send me ya’ll favorites through our submission button on our main page). But I was also surprised/not suprised to hear Flinch’s reaction in this video. Frisky actually said EXACTLY what Flinch is saying now, after the AC13 dance comp, which is, these dance comps will not be fair until they are judged fairly.
- There needs to be a coreo and free style division first of all, as Flinch notes that him as a freestyler shouldn’t have been given more attention than those who plan and practice a coreo.
- We need non furry actual professional dancers to judge these competitions I don’t care where the con will find them but having the same unprofessional people who have watched the same people dance will NOT produce a fair result. Favorites are obviously chosen even at preliminaries! I attended a prelimary and the first 6 people chosen were all popufurs that are in every dance comp. I know they might be choosing them because everyone wants to watch these furs dance, but it is not making it easy for other people to get involved. Prime example of this also going the opposite way was at Anthrocon when Skroy was belittled distastefully for disappointing the judges. Meaning these people who have judged the same dancers so many times were now COMPARING THEIR PREVIOUS DANCES. That’s totally unfair. Skroy’s dance was great and even if it wasn’t his best, it looks like he was just trying to have fun with it, which is the fucking point. An unbiased and professional judge wouldn’t have commented on previous dances, just the one present and compare it to the other dancers based on their DANCING not who they are or how long they’ve done this.
So that’s my two cents on the furry dance comps. I will still enter them because I do have a blast dancing in fursuit, it’s like one of my favorite things, but for those who are in it competitively, I feel really bad you have to deal with this ISH. AND YOU KNOW ITS BAD WHEN A WINNER OF THE DANCE COMP EVEN SAYS ITS UNFAIR THAT HE WON!
