Saturday Night Contest - Roundtable with Homer Liwag
Last week, we held an amazing roundtable discussion with Jason England. Over the past 24 hours, Jason was gracious enough to come BACK to the forums and answer 20+ MORE questions in forum posts. There's a wealth of knowledge there, and I would encourage everyone here to read every syllable of it.
Tonight, we continue the marathon of magicness with a roundtable discussion with the elusive, the mysterious, the prodigal Homer Liwag. One of the most respected coin magicians of our time, Homer is a clear stand out within this industry.
Every move he makes is meticulously thought out, and every video he has produced has pushed the envelope a few feet further within this artform. As creative counsel to David Copperfield, Homer's schedule is unbelievably busy, but we have arranged time with him this evening to answer questions from YOU.
Submit any question you wish. Ask and he will answer. Your question could be about coin magic, card magic, industrial design, CoinONE, CoinTWO, or of course, his new DVD of THE RICE PAPERS, which will be released THIS Monday at 11:00pm EST.
Limit of three questions per member, and all questions must be posted in response to THIS forum thread on or before 10:00pm EST. Shortly thereafter, we will begin recording a podcast with answers to as many question as we can get to within the limited time available.
One random member whose question is asked tonight will receive a complimentary vid of THE RICE PAPERS... and a little something extra...
UPDATE: Podcast has been posted! Check it out here.// jonathan.bayme
