Saturday Night Contest : What You Think

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by The Dark Angel, Jul 3, 2008.

  1. Magic that involves origami in some fashion
  2. Are there enough magicians into that in order to do a SNC about it?
  3. You don't really need to be. Make a crane and then do color changes or make one vanish/appear.

    You just have to make your power animal first.

  4. Do more contests that inspire people to create an original piece of magic. That's what we should be focusing on, creativity.
  5. Contest thatsntwitter related in some way, I find that t11 doesnt reply on twitter so in this way they would be prompted to be more social on twitter
  6. Do I see a Fight Club reference..?

  9. All I know is that his name was Robert Paulson.







  11. Do a contest on who can make the best preview video for a flourish or magic tutorial.

    Doesn't matter if the move is original or not, just who can make the best trailer

  12. What about, who can combine music the best with a flourish or trick? Must be interesting to see :)
  13. "And the winner is.... Shin Lim!"
  14. The best contests are the ones that require creating something original, and not just a picture we post so we can be "picked at random". Contests should be competitive, not based on luck!

    I think there should be a contest involving performing for strangers or just out and about, as the primary thing for magicians to do isn't sit in their room and practice moves and cardistry, but to share the magic with laymen.

    Something like "best/most original presentation of (enter classic trick or type of trick here)" could be a ton of fun!

  15. I'm getting tired of the "Create a Flourish" contests. People win with flourishes that have been done before, and it seems like they pop up once a month. I love cardistry, but it'd be nice to see greater variation.

  16. Sometimes there ones with a specific limitation, such as 1 handed or with a fan, and those are a little better. Otherwise I agree completely.

  17. The t11 decks come with a double backer, i am always short of ideas to use that card... how about a contest which uses a t11 deck and its double backer in some way.... this way we could share ideas with each other but here is a catch the tricks should be quick and short with a time limit of 20 to 30 seconds

  18. I am a very big fan of card magic. That being said, I would very much like to see what everyone is capable of when cards are not allowed. There is nothing wrong with having a specialty, but I believe a magician should be able to work without a deck if the situation calls for it.

  19. What I would like to see in a Saturday Night Contest is a create an effect challenge where an everyday object is announced as the focus of the effect. That way, we have to create an original effect, but center it around one specific item. I am also a huge fan of video and graphic editing, and dabble in both myself. That said, it would be fun to have a contest involving either video or graphic editing.
