Hey guys, hope everyone is having a great start to the weekend! The summer solstice just occurred, and that means it's time to officially kick off the summer! Your challenge is to create an effect that involves ANY items you can find at (or take to) the beach. Packing some drinks to take to the beach? You can create an effect with those cans/bottles. Find some cool shells while walking on the sand? Create something new with them. Accidentally tear your swim trunks? Restore the tear and make it good as new. Have an idea for a big illusion with beach chairs and towels? Go for it! ANYTHING you can find at the beach or is appropriate to take to the beach is fair game for this week's contest. Judging criteria will be as follows: we are looking for creativity, originality, and execution. Make it unique, make it look as smooth and polished as you can. We don't want to see any flashes! Film and upload your performance of your effect to either YouTube, Instagram, or Vimeo, and post the link to your public video in response to THIS forum thread by no later than tomorrow, Sunday, June 23rd at 11:00pm EST. Once time is up we will look through all submissions and decide on a winner based on the criteria listed above. PLEASE NOTE: You must state in your video or have on a piece of paper that this is for the Saturday Night Contest or include the date you are filming the video. Failure to do so will result in your submission being disqualified and not eligible for judging! What can you win? 1,000 Elite Points, a deck of Black NOCs, and ANY currently in-stock effect that has a value of up to $75, shipped anywhere in the world. Good luck!
