Hey guys, hope everyone is having a great weekend! Tomorrow is July 31st, which marks the fictional birthday of Harry Potter. The novels and films are synonymous with the world of magic, and we thought it would be fitting to pay a tribute to the series that has brought and continues to bring joy and wonder all around the world. The challenge for this week's contest is to create and/or perform an effect that would replicate or come close to a spell from the series. For example, one of the most popular spells is the levitation charm (wingardium leviosa). This spell causes an object to float in mid-air. There is also a reparation spell which is useful for torn and restored effects. There are countless spells in the world of Harry Potter, so the sky is the limit! It doesn't have to be exactly like the spell you choose, but get your effect to be as close as you can. The objective is to have fun with it! Film and upload your performance to either YouTube, Vimeo, or Instagram and post the link to your video in response to THIS forum thread by no later than 11:00pm EST tomorrow night, Sunday, July 31st. After time is up, we will go through all submissions and decide on a winner based on creativity and execution. Bonus points for dressing up in Harry Potter style! (not required). One submission per member! What will the winner take home? 1,000 Elite Member Points and SMOKE 2.0 by Alan Rorrison, shipped on the house anywhere in the world. We hope you guys have a lot of fun with this one. Good luck, wizards!
