    Hey guys! Just yesterday, we released a brand new download from Jason England: The Herrmann Pass. The Pass is one of the most versatile moves in card magic - and one of the most popular methods to control a selected card to the top of the deck.

    Tonight's contest is inspired by the Pass/Shift. This week's challenge: perform your favorite Pass or Shift technique! Make sure that the deck is FACE UP, so we can see that you have executed it. The video that showcases the technique the cleanest and the best will take home the win. We're looking for very smooth, natural, deceptive card technique.

    You have 24 hours to make it happen. Post your video on YouTube or Vimeo, and submit the link in response to THIS forum thread by no later than 7:30pm EST tomorrow, Sunday, March 31st. Make sure your video is set to Public or Unlisted. If we can't watch it - we can't judge it! Let us know in your post or video which move you're demonstrating. After time is up, our panel of judges will decide on a winner.

    What can you take home this week? 1,000 Elite Member Points, 6 Decks of Monarch Playing Cards, and our new download, The Herrmann Pass! Go for it.

    UPDATE :: The results have been posted!
  2. can it be original?
  3. Could we show the bottom card, then execute a turnover pass to show it's changed?

    Of course, but not required by any means.

    Yep, just as long as we can tell that the move was in fact executed.

    Go for it!
  8. Could we use an original control instead to enter the competition? I.E. Not a pass.

    Of course, but it must be a pass or shift. Originality is not required for this particular contest.
  10. That's not really a pass...
  11. mine? If it isnt sorry XD Idrk what a shift is. I do know what a pass is though.
    Just started magic approx. half a year ago
  12. Can we perform it as a control so a card gets selected... ? And can it be an old upload? Thanks :)
    This was filmed a few weeks ago, and I'm having computer troubles so i'm using my iPhone and it wouldn't let me upload another video of me performing my control, so I just put up a link of me performing it in another video so that's why there's a Pop-Out move as well.
  14. Can I do multiple passes in one video?
  15. So by pass you mean transposition of halves, but can shift just mean one card, like the clipshift, or the DPS?
