    Lightbulb Saturday Night Contest - Dimitri Arleri Roundtable

    Earlier this month, we celebrated the release of one of our most ambitious cardistry projects yet: Monument. A two-disc set, this project was both technically challenging and enormously comprehensive. It took us 18 months and a near-fatal hard drive crash to make it happen. The result is a collection of 16 unique, wildly creative flourishes devised by one of the cardistry community's most respected, breakthrough artists: Dimitri Arleri.

    Tonight, you have an opportunity to chat with him and get the inside scoop of his creative process. What started as a 5-minute video called Opera turned into a showcase of outside the box, insanely creative moves. 400,000 views later, he will be joining us this weekend to talk about the adventure and the method to his madness.

    So begins our roundtable discussion event - an opportunity for you to post any question you'd like in response to THIS forum thread. The deadline for this roundtable is Monday at 12:00pm EST - over 36 hours to participate, ask questions, and gain valuable insight from one of the industry's best. Limit THREE questions per member, and all questions should be submitted in response to this forum thread.

    After the deadline passes, we will record a podcast with Dimitri to answer as many questions as possible on Monday. Choose your questions wisely: this is a rare opportunity to come together as a community, share ideas, ask questions, and get answers. Your questions can range from Dimitri's inspirations to the making of Monument to his vision on the future of cardistry. Looking forward to a great discussion, fueled by your questions.

    One random member whose question is asked during the podcast will take home 1,000 Elite Member Points and a SIGNED DVD Set of Monument - shipped on the house anywhere in the world. But for now, our discussion begins. What will you ask Dimitri?

    UPDATE: This contest is complete, and the podcast has been posted!

    1. Why did you start cardistry? was it a person or the whole concept that made you want to pursue it?
    2. What is your creative process when it comes to flourishes? do you start with an existing flourish and keep variating until you have something new or do you start from scratch and experiment?
    3. Are you into anything else apart from cardistry?
