Hi Malcolm,Just a few questions I have about the video competition that I thought a few others might benifit from knowing answers to also:1. Can anyone enter: registered member, non-member, Moderator?2. What if my submission arrives in your mailbox a day or two later than 30th September? Will I be disqualified? How strict are you going to be?3. Video to be max 5 mins in length - so, if I'm doing both poi and staff set, must total set time be 5 mins, or can I do 5 mins for both?4. Groups and Individuals: can I enter competition on one video as flash fire, then on another as a member of the Wick Effect?5. Are crosses considered staffs?6. If a bunch of us get together to lay down our individual routines, would you prefer us to send it in on one video, or separate videos for individual entries?7. If someone does a routine with one staff and one poi together and they win, do they get $700 of equipment or $350 of equipment?------------------"she dances in a ring of fire and throws off the challenge with a shrug"

2. What if my submission arrives in your mailbox a day or two later than 30th September? Will I be disqualified? How strict are you going to be? I will be strict, unless you have good reason to be late3. Video to be max 5 mins in length - so, if I'm doing both poi and staff set, must total set time be 5 mins, or can I do 5 mins for both? 5 minutes for each set, total 10 minutes 4. Groups and Individuals: can I enter competition on one video as flash fire, then on another as a member of the Wick Effect? YES you can enter as yourself and with a group5. Are crosses considered staffs? for the purposes of the competition yes they will be classed as staff6. If a bunch of us get together to lay down our individual routines, would you prefer us to send it in on one video, or separate videos for individual entries? yes, you can share a tape with others7. If someone does a routine with one staff and one poi together and they win, do they get $700 of equipment or $350 of equipment?must be a seperate staff or poi routine, not both at same time. If they do the best 5min of poi and best 5min of Staff then they will win USD$700 of stuff. If performing as a group, you must select the catagory to enter. Those in the group not using the main selected catagory apparatus will be ignored

What about 2 staffs at once?does that disqualify you from the staff comp?

~whoosh whoosh whoosh~

Does this mean i shouldnt even bother sending in a video as i dont use Poi or staff.yet if i only have one wick on each set of twisters alight. some of moves are the same as poi moves, and when all for wicks are alight some of the moves are simmular to staffs.

here's a question..what if my video is longer than 5 minutes? will they just judge up till the 5 minute mark? or am I automatically disqualified if it's 5:01?are there any criteria they judge on? like speed, difficultly, fluidity etc?or is it just overall "wow factor"

Malcolm, I'm having trouble deciding what to use. If I use glowsticks I can do all sorts of wraps and stuff. If I use my zuni's, the weight makes it easier for BTB 5 beat weaves and the technical side of spinning excluding wraps. And if I use fire only a couple of wraps can be done and i'm not to confident to do BTB 5 beat weaves. I'm not quite sure what to do. If I do them all, there will only be 1 minute and 53 seconds to do each. I guess I just have to decide. Maybe in the future, we could have different contests. As said before, spinning fire is different then spinning glowsticks.Eric

Its about talent, not make up or costumes.

um Myst,He said POi not fire poi. I think for all intensive purposes, glowsticks count as poi. I'd really like to see a full length glowstick set from you and pozee on this video. not cuz you cant fire twirl but because I think quality glowsticking is drastically under-represented

and is a valid side of twirling. Yes folks, I'm crossing the floor. These two guys showed me that glowsticking is a legit form of twirling, in a seperate class to fire and not just a wimp's replacement.Josh

Myst, if you are wanting to do alot of wraps with fire I would recomend wearing wet cotton cloths (or army fatiges, BDUs etc) I have a clip on my competition video that I sent in where I wrap about 200 times in one minute with fire

, while wearing wet BDUs. (I realy hope it makes it onto the compilation...) BDUS rock! But be sure you wear safty glasses or wrap around sunglasses, cause some of those wraps can get dangerouse! Fuel in the eye and stuff

i have a question about videoing.. I read the tips on the other page, and it mentioned to make sure auto focus is off when using fire, should i assume it should be off also for the glowsticks?? And if i have a topless girl in my video, willthat help my chances any??Im going to submitt some glowstick representation. Youll know me by the "S" on my chest.i dont care if i win, ive already come to the conclusion that will not place at all, i just want to be on the vid. That would be schweeeet..------------------"When a Man Lies He Murders Some Part of the World These Are the PaleDeaths Which Men Miscall Their Lives All this I Cannot Bear to Witness Any Longer Cannot the Kingdom of Salvation Take Me Home"

there are double wraps that don't work well with my chains and end up looking ugly, it's not the cloths I'm worried about, it's the weight of my chains. EricAnd sup, you come through with a topless girl and I'll be your best friend for life.LOL
