Saturday Night Contest - Camera Tricks!

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Casey Rudd, Sep 28, 2019.

  1. Hey guys, hope you're having a great week! Tonight's contest comes directly from our "What You Think" thread, so if you have a suggestion for a future contest we should do, we highly recommend leaving it there and letting us know what you want to see. It may just be selected for a future contest!

    Normally, camera tricks are a big no-no in magic - a violation of "what you see is what you get" when experiencing magic through the lens of a camera. This week, for this contest, that rule is lifted - this week, it's all about camera tricks.

    The challenge for this week is to use Instagram or YouTube to accomplish an amazing, magical effect. Video edits and camera cuts are the name of the game, but all methods are on the table. The result should be a very magical effect that may not be authentic, but it MUST be creative, deceptive, and entertaining. Try to make it look as clean as possible with no obvious cuts or edits.

    You can do any effect you like, just make sure that it is off-the-wall, creative, and most of all - deceptive. One rule: you can only use YouTube or Instagram video for this contest. Once you've made your YouTube or Instagram video, use the hashtag #theory11 and post the link to it in response to THIS forum thread by no later than 11:00pm EST tomorrow, Sunday, September 29th.

    Each member gets only one entry, so make it count! What can you win? 1,000 Elite Points, a deck of Black NOCs, and any effect currently available in our store that has a value of $75 or less.

    Good luck!

  12. Congrats Kaan! We have selected your entry as the winner for this week's contest! We felt that the editing job was executed perfectly; we couldn't tell that there were any edits made to the video we were watching, which is exactly what we were looking for. So clean, and brilliantly executed. Great work! Please contact our support team so we can get your prize out to you ASAP!

    We would also like to extend an honorable mention to theSunnyG for his video, as it was really creative and made this one incredibly close.

    See you all on Saturday for a new contest!
