Saturday Night Contest - Roundtable Discussion - Eric Ross
Less then one week ago, we released the final teaser video along with full details on an upcoming project from Eric Ross entitled CRUSH. Imagine having the ability to cause any bottle to collapse on command... even while being held by your spectator. Understandably, many of you had questions on what looks and sounds like a true miracle. Tonight, you'll get your answers.
Tonight's event is a discussion with the man himself - your chance to ask Eric ANY question you wish. What do you want to know? What do you need to know? Whether you have a question on innovation in magic, the creative process, or the development of Eric's latest effect CRUSH - ALL questions are fair game. We will select as many questions as possible to answer in a podcast posted later tonight.
Limit of THREE questions per member, so choose your questions wisely and make 'em count. Questions must be posted in THIS forum thread on or before 10:00pm EST. Podcast will be posted at 11:00pm EST.
Crush will be released this Wednesday, but the full preview video goes up on MONDAY night. Trust me, this one is worth staying up for. I promise.
PRIZE: one random member whose question is asked in the podcast tonight will receive a copy of CRUSH upon its release, sent on the house. Note that questions requesting details of method or technique will not be accepted in order to protect the secret behind this effect.
UPDATE: Podcast has been posted! Eric was very sick tonight and we almost had to cancel less than an hour ago - but he was a trooper and make it happen. We answered as many questions as we could - covering details on Crush, practicality of Crush, the creative process, his roots in magic, and much more.

Was there an effect you based Crush on?
Can the bottle be crushed no matter where it is (excluding nonsense places like fire, but maybe floating in water)?
