  1. Never said I was right - I simply stated the factual weighted/average score for Music Brass (where they are currently ranked 4th.) Never said anyone was wrong either - and that's a fact too. I'm a Crown fan from way back and hope for the best - another fact.
  2. Did they get new tarps.... just saw a clip on Instagram and they seem to be a different color - not as dark as before... looked a little green.
  3. Just looked at the current "Music Brass" score and they are 4th - not much to take issue with - it's a fact.
  4. It may be rad but they are sitting in 4th or 5th place across the captions board right now - of course "changes" are allegedly coming: but it's hard to imagine there could be enough to jump to a medal they'd need at least a full point to pass SCV.
  5. What can be done to improve the Visual score?
  6. Isn't Crusaders guard staff mostly the former staff from Crown? And if so ... it's a shame that Crown let them "get away."
  7. To my eye the best conceived in recent memory were SCV's Ouboros cylinders - used them in almost every imaginable way possible and kept the images on them synched most of the time too.
  8. I sorta see a giant "ghost light" image like the show announcement image that then also chnages as they open and close the panels... but it might be too much - right now it looks like plywood (on video). I haven't seen a good enough video to figure SCV's out... I totally agree with Crowns' (AGAIN?!? imo) ... they are hard to see and add nothing (except guard storage) - stage included. Bloo's have potential, but not sure if this is it or if they are evolving - there was a comment the other night about how the "bloo croo" was working on props all night... might be a really neat look to have the paisley/patterns on all those dots... hopefully they won't be white the whole time and then turn orange at the last minute. Boston uses theirs very well, they are sorta "2-d" though... they only show the one side as the concept. Most of the others seem to be just dragging stuff around - and Phantom's "pyres" SMH.
  9. I assume there is some sort of imagery coming to the large panel things....
  10. It seems like having massive props is getting more and more expected/required - whose work, whose do not?
  11. I wonder how many BOA versions of this one we'll see come Fall...
  12. After a couple of views - this is a vast improvement on every level from the past 2 years... IMHO. Every section/aspect is far an above where they were last year at this time. The props don't really add much I feel like they are too "transparent" but I guess that goes with the theme ... they do move them around a lot (they don't just sit here like last years bones). Plenty to build on and no doubt there are some additions (most likely a story too), to bring it all together as we go. Looking forward to this year!
  13. The props seem a little ho-hum again... do they do anything with them besides drag them around?
