Well, it sort of is, actually--here's how . . . .
While you make a very good point, and I totally see where you're coming from, you're making the assumption that you have to star in the video. That is not always the case. Take a look at Kaos, for example. Created by Sean Beard, but taught by Daniel Garcia. If the move is really that good, they'll make sure to get it out there in a way that will catch peoples attention and (hopefully) sell well. (Of course, their intention probably differs slightly from yours (businesses exist to make money, on top of whatever other effects they may have on the industry, after all), but that's not the point, heh)If the move is good enough for Dan & Dave, the move is good enough to sell independently. (Probably. this is arguable too, but let's set it aside.)
But when a company like Theory11, D&D, or Ellusionist is producing a DVD, they're selling the move and the artist.
In particular, when they think of you and your magic/flourishing, they'll think of the Bucks, and thus greatness. That's definitely a good association to create. It's kind of how some companies use celebrities to create the association of "popular" or "awesome" (or whatever) with their product that they're trying to sell.and people will associate your magic and yourself on better terms.
May I suggest to provide us with more time? Perhaps an extra week?
It all seems a little rushed for one week.
When I was talking to him about it he said it was apart of the challenge. I would love an extra week since I'm going away for 2 days tomorrow myself, but you have to play the cards life deals you I guess. Pun intended by the way.
Did you actually make a request to extend the deadline? Lets just see what other people think. Perhaps if we get enough people, JB might actually extend the deadline... or maybe not lol
