The New Deck Order (NDO) was formed with the idea of reaching out to Cardists all over the world, and to bring them closer together. We currently run #15secondcardistry on Instagram, and School of Cardistry on YouTube.
These 10 cardists are:
- Rama Dimasatria from Indonesia, Champion of CDM 2011
- Terry Lu from Thailand, Champion of CCC 2011
- Abie Jie Assegaff from Indonesia, Champion of Dan and Dave's Smokes and Mirrors V7 Trailer Contest
- Yang Nguyen, Semi-finalist in WKC 2014 (ongoing)
- AJ Arandilla from Philippines, Top 8 in WKC 2014
- Khanh from Vietnam, Top 16 in WKC 2014
- Amsyar Fikri from Malaysia, Top 16 in WKC 2014
- Zombieflourish from Vietnam
- Ilyta from Vietnam
- David Gooi from Malaysia
Jaspas Deck will also be giving lectures in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and Manila.
Update 22 March 2014: Today we announce 2 MORE Cardists joining our star-studded crew of 8 in this amazing DVD. The 2 new additions, Abie Jie and Yang Nguyen, are both award-winning Cardists. Abie Jie was the champion in Dan and Dave's Smokes and Mirrors V7 Trailer Contest, and Yang Nguyen is currently a semi-finalist in the on-going World Kardistry Championship.
We've spent months searching for something special to present to you. Something different.
The DVD itself features moves from 8 Southeast Asian Cardists. There will also be footage of the lectures and jams that will be held while we are in each location. Find out what goes on in the minds of people on this side of the globe! If you get the physical copy of the DVD, it also comes with an insert full of photography, comments and notes from the tour.
Other perks include a limited-edition deck of cards specially designed for this project. These cards are only available with a purchase of the DVD. You might notice that the court cards have been changed. These look great for spinning moves like the Pirouette, and provide a more consistent look for displays.
Jaspas Deck's S.E.A. Tour Lecture Notes are a 60-page set of notes detailing his 12 years of experience as a Cardist. In it, he talks about everything from how to improve your skills, to live performances and creating moves. A large portion of the notes are dedicated to videography basics, tips and tricks.
*The above images are of prototypes, actual products may vary.
We've already spent a couple thousand dollars to get this project started. These include setup costs and costs of prototypes for the perks.Transport and accommodation make up majority of our expenses for the tour, as we are spending two months traveling across 5 countries. Other expenses include production costs, lecture venue rental and our day-to-day expenses.If you've been in the community for a while, you probably have lots of Cardist friends, many whom you've never met as they are spread all over the world.
Let us bring them to you.
This project will be the precedent for further documentaries of Cardistry scenes around the world. We're looking forward to meeting all of you guys everywhere and sharing your Cardistry with the rest of the world.
Also, 10% of our profits will be donated to the Philippines Red Cross for the Typhoon Yolanda disaster that happened in November last year.
We really appreciate if you could help to share this project on your social media profiles. Southeast Asian Cardists, please support the project by joining us for the lectures and jams in your respective countries. We look forward to meeting you soon!
