Trash Sling Challenge 2020
Nov 14th, 2020 at 10:08pm
 
Itís that time again!† As everyone gets ready for SITH, thereís no better way to sharpen your sling-making skills than to build a sling out of trash and maybe even win some prizes!

Hereís the rules:
1. The sling must be made of at least two materials, and at least one of the materials should be garbage.
2. Post a video on YouTube showing you successfully making 5 consecutive throws using ammunition that weighs more than 50g... preferably a tennis ball, but rocks are ok if you donít have any tennis balls on hand.† Indoor videos are ok too, but we need to see some real throws to make sure your sling holds up.
3. You may make multiple entries. No repeats from last year though. Try something new!

Thatís it! Be creative.† †Bonus points for entertaining videos that tell a story. Videos must be posted by April 1, 2021. The prize is TBD... maybe Iíll make it a sling again, or maybe another Razor Glande mask or maybe a new slinging t-shirt design that doesnít exist yet. I think other members may have also mentioned adding prizes, and anyone is welcome to, but weíll just leave it TBD for now.

Have fun!

Nice!† I was wondering if you were going to post this challenge again.† I thought of doing it myself.

As the reigning champion of the Trash Sling Challenge, I'll donate a prize for the winner of this year's challenge.† Just a hint.† It will come in a bottle.† Wink

I'd like to see that entry!† Even if it means this challenge will turn into a poll like the pumpkin challenge, or some other method of voting.

Joe, how much cash can fit in a bottle? I'm not picky any amount over a hundred will do!

Ok I'm tentatively in on this one. The SITH one is going to be a beast but this will give me something fun to mess with. Let's kick some trash.

Itís really not that hard to make a decent video. All you need to do is tell some sort of story (as opposed to being overly focused on technical nuances of slinging), make copious use of jump cuts (removing excessive repetition and unnecessary motions that can be assumed like reloading ... this goes along with not being too technical) in your editor of choice, and grab some free music from filmmusic.io

All music is free if you know where to get it my good man. The viruses that come with it are just a bonus.

Ha! I mean royalty free. It costs nothing but a line in the credits for attribution, and itís 100% sanctioned for use in your video. I had a specific song I wanted to use in a video announcing the birth of my son several years ago, and to keep it all above-board, it cost me $200 for a non-commercial license to use the song one time! I can usually find something that fits the mood of my videos on filmmusic.io these days.
