Saturday Night Contest - Create A Flourish!

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Casey Rudd, Feb 27, 2016.

  1. Hey guys! Hope you all are enjoying your weekend thus far. It's been a little bit since we have done a create-a-flourish contest, so tonight, we're doing just that. The one condition? Your flourish has to include/feature a display of some sort.

    Your challenge is to create a new flourish based around showing a display. Simple as that. That is the only rule. The sky is the limit with how many flourishes you can create. Make it new and fresh, and try to make it as original as possible. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Just show us something unique and creative. We also want to see a smooth performance. Execution will play a factor in the judging process, as well.

    We are also looking for flow. If your flourish is taking a while to put packets into place to show a display, odds are it won't make the cut. The objective of the contest is to incorporate a display that makes sense with the rest of your move. The display doesn't have to be overly flashy either, because we are looking at the rest of the flourish as well.

    You also don’t need a nice camera to film your flourish. It can be a webcam video! Cinematography and editing skills are in no way required for tonight’s contest. We want to see the flourish. That is what counts.

    Film your flourish and upload it to YouTube, Vimeo, or Instagram (if posted on IG, hashtag it #theory11). Post the link to your public video (so we can see it!) in response to THIS forum thread by no later than 11:00pm EST tomorrow, Sunday, February 28th. Once time is up, our panel of judges will go through each submission and decide on a winner based on the criteria listed above. You can submit up to 2 flourishes per member, but remember that we are looking for quality, not quantity!

    What can you take home if you win? 1,000 Elite Member Points, a deck of White Gold Monarchs, and a deck of Gold Monarchs, shipped on the house anywhere in the world! We will also give the winner a further peek at our upcoming project, which we began teasing this week on Expose.

    We look forward to seeing your creations! You have a little over 24 hours. Make it happen!

  2. Good luck to all involved!
  3. I am not a flourish kind of guy but what is meant by include/feature a display?
  4. A display is when the flourish stops for a second to show the viewer a shape/structure created during the process of the move.
