    Lightbulb Saturday Night Contest - theory11 live 08/11/13

    In July, we hosted a live YouTube event in association with the Society of American Magicians, magic's oldest and most respected organization originally presided over by Harry Houdini. We gathered an eclectic group of artists - from Chris Kenner to Brian Brushwood to Michael James and Dan White - and for one hour, we talked about magic and cardistry; past, present, and future.

    The event was a breakthrough success, with over 600 questions and comments during the broadcast. So we're doing it AGAIN, and it's happening TOMORROW night on August 11th at 11:00pm EST. Don't miss it! But if you can't make it, don't worry - it will be recorded.

    The event will be broadcasted live on YouTube, and will span about one hour. This time, we'll be joined by yours truly, Marco Tempest, Calen Morelli, Zach Mueller, Steve Cohen, and a few surprise guests.

    In preparation for that event, tonight you are invited to submit YOUR questions to our panel in response to this forum thread. You have 24 hours to submit your questions, and we'll answer as many as possible during the live broadcast. All questions are fair game - directed at any or all of our panel hosts. This is a rare opportunity to gain insight and advice from some of magic's most experienced and successful performers, so choose your questions wisely! One random member whose question is asked during the event will receive a 6 pack of Monarchs and a shiny new Monument DVD Set by Dimitri Arleri.

    Skills like flourishes, escapology, gambling demonstrations, hypnosis and Tempest-style graphical media manipulation are now accepted parts of the magician's arsenal. So, to what extent would you say overt displays of technique and ability can be incorporated into a magician's performance? Is there a line beyond which the performance stops being magic and becomes something else?

    What do you think about the implementation of modern technology in magic today, Much like the things Marco does, but on a wider, more accessible platform. Including the impact of internet forums/communities such as theory11?

    What are you planning on making next?

    Internet help lot of people (me incluided) to learn magic and even improve our art form, but at the same time this "easy-to-find" information has its own defects... What do you all think they can be?

    Default Roy Walton

    Roy Walton has made an incredible mark on magic with his books and other tricks. He hasn't made any DVDs as of yet. How do you think this would impact his legacy to the younger generation of magicians who learn thru DVDs and YouTube?

    How do you think we can make magic more mainstream? Right now, people still have that idea of a geeky guy in a top hat, so how could we change that?

    Practice doesn't make perfect. PERFECT practice makes perfect.

    Why do you do magic ? And what got you interested in the art ?

    in your opinion, are DVD's the best way to lean new material and if so how much material should be on the disc for it to qualify as a DVD
