How to Get Fast is a series of 16 videos about how to get fast at the different WCA events. It will be released over the next four weeks, one video on every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. The introduction video explains everything:

Love the contrast in the intro: - pieces of paper with marker pen... leading into Hollywood-style video with dramatic drums and bouncy red ball things!!!

In other news - woohoo, new cubing world series. :) Keep up the good work Noah, thanks!

Wow that makes me so excited!!!!

No seriously, if I saw that... Drew or Odder are doing the Pyra video I'd watch it. If I saw some 4-5s solve doing it I wouldn't. I don't think you'd GAIN viewers/interest by hiding the names (unless all the cubers are mediocre) but you'd certainly lose viewers/interest.

Hey don't be mean. The real reason is because I don't know exactly who is doing every video yet although most of them are made. I wouldn't want to announce an incomplete list or make promises I can't keep. Yes, Drew or Odder is doing the Pyraminx video, and no we don't have any mediocre solvers making any of the videos. That's what I meant when I said that we had a top notch solver for every video.

I presume:

1. 2x2
2. 3x3
3. 4x4
4. 5x5
5. 6x6 and 7x7
6. 3x3 BLD
7. Multi BLD
8. 4x4 and 5x5 BLD
9. skewb
10. pyraminx
11. megaminx
12. one handed
13. feets
14. sq-1
15. clock
16. fewest moves
so missing out on none, and only combinding the one mentioned in the video

Which events will we be missing out on/getting them mixed with other events?

Edit: sorry if it's in the video, I can't watch it on my iPad right now.
6x6 and 7x7 share a video.
4BLD and 5BLD share a video.

So basically what Jaysammey777 said.

Wrong!

I don't have to know someone very well in order for them to be involved in this project. I met a lot of those people at worlds anyway.
