Hello IJA Community! We are Eli March (@elijuggles) and Nate ‘Scramble James’ Hughes (@scramblejames) from Portland, Oregon, USA. We are the co-owners of Circus Luminescence (@circusluminescence) and won the 2018 IJA Teams Competition as The Cosmic Cousins. We have been juggling for 15 and 11 years respectively, and together for the past 6 years. We both began juggling for different reasons but what brought us together was our desire to creatively play within different timings to create a dynamic and fun experience. Much of our time practicing and training is accompanied by laughter, fortunate mistakes, and lots of improv. This love of juggling and play led us to start a small juggling store (CircusL.com/shop) in hopes of inspiring and enabling more people to become jugglers.
It was a great honor to create the January 2021 Tricks of the Month video and it could not have done it without the support of our amazing, creative, and generous community. We need to give a special thank you to Tyler Spades for his videography, video editing skills, time, and effort. Check him out on Instagram at @spinningspades. We also need to thank Solovox (www.Solovox.com) for donating his funky music to the video, Kelly Chameleon (@Chameleon_Captures) for donating the beautiful sunset time-lapse, and Allie T. (@yesthatsallie) for her hula hooping, videography, and for being an amazing collaborator throughout the years.
This video was filmed in Portland, Oregon in November and December during the winter surge of the Covid-19 pandemic. There were many challenges faced, and overcome, during the process of producing this video. We are so incredibly happy to share the final result and hope you enjoy it. Please follow us at:
