Notation Challenge

Throughout 2019 we, as a team, will notate a number of famous staged battles utilising the TNS. The Notation Challenge's goal is to help you develop your notation skills while contributing to the lightsaber community, theater companies and other costumed groups out there. Being a part of this challenge goes just beyond notation as you will also contribute to the future SaberCraft curriculum and a part of many sequences available in LUMINA. In order to be a part of this challenge, you will have to work with others as a team in order to review a battle, notate it, compare and compromise. You will work with your team to develop the battle into CMs and help decide a single CM that will go into the SaberCraft Core CM library. Future saber choreography clubs will be able to download these fights and re-enact them as well because of your contribution to the community. Interested in notating a different battle? Come see us at our next class and present your idea to the instructors. Let's get started.
