In order to create any great art, one must first identify the canvas. If you're a painter, your canvas is... a canvas. But tonight, your canvas - the limiting factor - is time.

The time now is 7:30pm EST. From this moment, you have 3 hours and 30 minutes to create a NEW flourish or cut of your own. Start from scratch. Start from nothing. It can be false. It can be real. It can be a cut. It can be a display. The choice is yours. We're looking for creativity.

By 11:00pm EST, post a link to a short video of your creation in this thread. Videos can be uploaded to any of the major video sharing sites - Viddler, YouTube, Vimeo, Veoh, etc. Be sure to budget enough time for the video to upload and convert - this can take several minutes, and all videos must be posted and viewable on or before 11:00pm EST.

The theory11 crew will judge submissions based on creativity and overall presentation. We're not expecting everyone to come up with the next Molecule7000xLethalSyble cut in 3 hours. But sometimes - when you have to - you can surprise even yourself by pushing the limits of your own potential.

The winner tonight will be posted as a featured video in the theory11 media section, and will also receive one deck of brown Wynn's shipped on the house. The clock is ticking. Good luck to all - looking forward to seeing the submissions!

Update at 11:30pm EST
: Winner has been posted - Andrei Jikh. Watch the winning video here.

This is intense. I'm not the greatest flourisher or the most creative mind, but I'll see if I can give this a shot. Or find my camera. :)

I know, I have created a pretty nice cut but don't have a camera, just one but it doesn't have a connector cord to a computer!
But everything needs to be made tonight so if you just made it in
19 mins then I guess that would be fine but then you would be amazing if you could do that!

Does the length of the cut matter? Can the cut/flourish incorporate a production? Can there be a single cut but a second version?
