ROUND #4 - CHOREOGRAPHED MUSICAL PERFORMANCE
Create a XCM routine to music. In short, create a XCM music video - This is how many professionals present their XCM performances and this will help you develop a routine.
3 minutes max including intro. You can have an edited intro - taunting or something cool of your choice, but the actual video must be uncut. You can edit the color of the video, but nothing else. No speeding up, and no cutting the footage. With intro your video can't exceed 3 minutes total. No one will cry about a few seconds here or there, but try to adhere to the time limit.
OBJECT TO SHOW
You must show or hold up a weapon of your choice before you start so we know that the video was made specifically for this tournament.
You MUST show your face somewhere in the video.
Use any deck or multiple decks
OTHER ITEMS/THINGS TO KNOW
You can use the cardbox/cardclips
You can use any props that fit your performance
You can use a table
You can shorten or modify the music to meet the timeframe. Please do the music first and then perform. Do NOT cut up music afterwards to match your performance.
Videos are due on on Sunday the 1rst of November 2009 U.S. time.
UPLOADING YOUR VIDEO
Please don't upload your videos early! If you do, be sure to set it to private so no one can see them prior to the deadline. Or better yet, wait until the day before deadline...
What we are looking for is a complete performance video! We are looking for you to dress the part, and perform TO THE MUSIC! Use the music as accents to your XCM, match it up. You dress, attitude and XCM should blend with the music to make 1 entertaining routine. Some people will try to reverse engineer the music to match the video you take and that is NOT what we are looking for. If it looks like you cut the music to match your performance, then you'll be docked points. Pick a song, and work your routine to it. Use body movements and clothing/props to enhance the overall performance. Performing real XCM for real people takes a complete show, and this is what Handlordz has always tried to push to our members. This is just one more way we are helping you to prepare for the real world. This is a complete freestyle performance - so use any moves that you wish, but know that you will still be judged based on the main requirements.
