Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Pretty much a ripoff of what Ferenc Cako's been doing for a while.

But she's young & pretty and he's, well, not.

I would like to think more inspired by than ripped off.  I've enjoyed Cako's work for quite a while now and find it refreshing to see someone else following suit.  I would imagine he would have had to give permission/blessing as the concept of sand animation is copyrighted to him.  Besides, anyone who uses Apocalyptica in their performance can't be all bad.

He may have been a mentor for all I know. Some of her gestures and methods are exactly like his. I first I thought she might be his daughter or something.

Someone had to be the first impressionist.

I guess the rest of them are mere copy cats.  Huh
