Saturday Night Contest - Roundtable Discussion with Jesse Feinberg
It's been over a month since our last roundtable discussion, so we thought it was about time to refresh the archive with a new addition. Tonight, we are privileged to host a special theory11 roundtable discussion with one of magic's most prolific rising stars, Jesse Feinberg. Jesse specializes in the style of magic that draws crowds and gets reactions - quick, visual effects that you can perform at a moment's notice using common items. Tonight you have your opportunity to ask him anything.
We're asking for YOUR questions - any question - relating to Jesse's creative process, performing experience, the Spello Change, or any other topic you would like us to discuss. There is a limit of three questions per participant, so make them count! All questions must be posted as a response to this thread no later than 10:00pm EST. Jesse will join us thereafter to record the podcast, which will be posted here at 11:00pm EST on the dot.
This is a rare, valuable opportunity to obtain knowledge, advice, and performance tips from a creative professional. We look forward to a thought provoking discussion - and plenty of questions to answer! One random member who submits a question asked in the podcast will take home the Spello Change - or any other 1-on-1 you wish - on the house.
UPDATE + Podcast has been posted! Listen to it now here.// jonathan.bayme
