Topic: Graduation Party Tricks
Message: Posted by: Matthew Bennett (Jun 11, 2005 09:42PM)
Does anyone know of any effects that deal specifically with graduation? Or any ideas on something common that I could turn into a graduation effect? I searched but could find none. I will be doing a graduation party at the end of this month, just my normal walkaround stuff, but with 1/2 hour show in the middle of my walk around. I just wanted to add something relevant to the party!!

Thanks,

Matthew

Anniversary waltz.

if kids are going away to college, do it up that way, and let the mom
know that even though the will be apart (put into different parts of the deck)
that she and her child will always be together

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

In Jeff Pierce's [i]The King Has Left The Building[/i] ebook there is an effect called "Predict-A-Wave which would be great for situations like this.

And because it's so cheap to setup you could use many different "key words" durin the course of the evening so that the effect changes for different people.

For basketball player it could be his/her jersy number. You could use "Class of 2005", or the "Go Tigers" (or whatever the name of the team is...).

Depending on the amount of pre-show you want to do it could be something they'll remember forever. Try and locate a copy of the yearbook so you can match pictures of the guests with some personal information.

Just an idea - I myself have had done this trick called A Sucker is Born Every Minute: How to Lose Friends and Win Money at a graduation party. I just put lottery tickets instead of business cards. Everybody participated had fun!

That is a cool trick, but don't think it has anything to do with graduation??
