Spin Wars Episode VIII: Emergence

Alrighty folks. Spin Wars may be over, but who won?

WINNING CATEGORIES:

BEST IN SKILL:
The winner in this category should be the person you feel was the most skillful. Whether it is combat skills that make you sure you don't want to meet this person down a dark alley or flashy tricks that make your inner Will.i.am say "what the what!?", this person really has the skills to pay the bills.

BEST IN SHOW:
The winner in this category may not have the best moves, but man can they put on a show. Could be a costume, could be a background, could be editing, but this person, for whatever reason, was the most fun or impressive to watch.

THE FORCE IS WITH THEM:
The winner in this category has that special something. It could be that they were your second choice in one of the other categories or it might just be that subliminal message they embedded in their video. You may not be able to put your finger on it, but you just want them to be a winner.


HOW THE VOTING WORKS:
go to the youtube video description for instructions. Voting is open through FEB 10th when winners will be announced.

And now on to the video

SPIN WARS Episode VIII
Emergence

In the grips of a great plague, spinners from across the galaxy have been locked down perfecting their skills in solitude. But then a break!

The galaxy has heard a mysterious broadcast: the scientists of the planets New Derna and Fai’zar think they have found a way forward. Though there is still much uncertainty, the citizens of the galaxy begin to emerge to find their worlds much changed.

THE SPIN emerges with them: stronger than than before, and joined by new allies and new rivals, dark siders and light siders once again face off, sabers in hand, to decide the future of THE SPIN…

THE ORIGINAL CALL FOR VIDEOS PRESERVED FOR POSTERITY.

Here we are again saber community. Another year has come and gone, and it was another doozy. The world is a very different place, but respirator masks are cool now so…. Hopefully we have spent some time improving our sabering  skills in the last year.  So let’s see how you all did. That’s right, the time has come once again to break out those sabers, cameras, and fancy moves, and get ready for this year’s Spin Wars!  This is the announcement you have all been waiting for. This makes the 8th year, so I guess watch out for Rian Johnson changing the format. That's how that works right?
 
First though, for the new blood in the community this year, let's take a look back at where it all began.
 
What is Spin Wars?
 
Spin Wars is Tradition!!!
 
Simply put, most of us here tend to do our own things. We do choreographed fights, martial arts demos, spinning routines, costume work, etc. What if there was a way to get several of those things into one project that would showcase a wider picture of what we, as a community, do with lightsabers? That is what Spin Wars did last 7 years. For anyone unfamiliar, the archived videos are here.

So what about this year? This year we are back to a light side and a dark side video. The time to come together is past, now it is all about the battle for supremacy! So the dark and the light will have separate videos again this year. Bring your A game as there will be sides, a winner, dark and light MVPs, and prises.
 
Anyone willing to contribute, post a video in which you show us your saber work. You can choreograph a fight, you can give us spinning, you can film some freeform work, you can do it with lit or unlit blades, in costume or in plain clothes, outside, inside, or on green screen. This footage will be edited together into a montage. There will be a base music track that will be the same for everyone this year.
 
 
The criteria:
 
 
1. For editing and theme purposes, the video should be designed to accompany a piece of music posted below. Please have the music playing in the video so that I can hear it in the background for timing. If you record it without the music or while the music was playing through headphones, please attach the music track to it before you post.
 
 
2. Your video must include a lightsaber (or exotic light weapon of some sort) and be something recognizable as "a performance".
 
 
3. Your content should not violate youtube or forum rules.
 
 
The details:
 
If you are interested, please post and say so. Also please indicate if you will considering yourself dark side or light side for this performance. When you have a video, please post it here or on my Darth Cephalus Facebook page. I can rip things from youtube without a problem for editing, but if you post it directly to facebook, please send it through something like google dopcs as well, so I can grab it. Please include the name or moniker you would like to appear in the credits. If you have a youtube channel or web link, post it and I will include it in the description. Please try to submit material as soon as you are able. I would like to start editing in mid December (let's say a final deadline around Dec 23rd) with a video release on Youtube around the first of the year.

Additional notes and disclaimers:
 
This is not a professional video. This is by and for those who are willing to donate time and energy to make it happen. I will have to decide what makes it in and what does not. I will attempt to give everyone equal time (provided they submit a long enough clip to accomplish this). I will try to include everyone, and if too many people are interested to do that, I will try to make a second cut. This may have to come out after the first though. If you have a favorite segment, feel free to let me know the time range and I will do what I can, but no promises. Other than that, feel free to discuss and ask questions if you wish. If there is anything I can do to help you put together a submission, let me know. Otherwise, let's make this one a good one.
Now Get Spinning!.

Yay! I think I'd like to join again. I'll see if I can get a entry filmed. Probably Light Side this year (unless you need Dark Side. I'll use a Pink blade, so you can put it wherever you want).

Somehow my post here on the 1st didn't go through and I just noticed. My bad. I edited the OP to contain the final version of the montage. Sorry about the mixup, hanks to all who participated, and may the Spin be with you!
