Essential Magic Conference 2010
If you haven’t heard already, tomorrow starts something epic. The Essential Magic Conference (EMC) makes it’s debut. As we speak, many of the world’s top magicians gather in Portugal to teach the magic community some awfully cool stuff. Three days of performances and lectures from people like Cyril, Barry and Stewart, Jason England, Apollo Robins, Eric Mead, Gazzo, Helder Guimaraes, Luis de Matos, Lenart Green, Marco Tempest, Max Maven, Paul Kieve, Ponta the Smith, Richard Wiseman, Topas, Bill Kalush, and many, many more. If this list doesn’t peak your interest, there is something wrong with you.
Now, I know what you are thinking. “I live in , I can’t make it to Portugal tomorrow!” Here is the kicker to the entire EMC. It is online. Luis de Matos is organizing this as the world’s first web conference for magicians. Many people live far enough away from where the conventions happen (myself included) that they rarely have the chance to attend one. If you fall into this group, Luis is your hero. You can sit comfortably in your home tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday and watch the best of the world of magic talking about what it takes to be on the same level.
http://essentialmagicconference.com/ is the place to go. For 55 euros (about $75) you get the following – Live video feed and chatroom access through the whole conference, streaming video for each and every session for one year after the conference is over, and a complete DVD set of the entire conference mailed to your door at no cost to you. Sound like a steal? It should. A live ticket to a conference like this ought to cost much more without the streaming access and the DVD set. This is one of the best deals in magic that you could come by.
If you doubt me, go ahead and don’t take the last chance to register. I will be blogging throughout the event to keep everyone informed of what has happened. People who missed a session can see what coolness they missed. People like you who, for unknown crazy reasons, did not register for the conference can find out what you are missing. Stay tuned right here for the action, and also hop on the ExoMagic Tinychat space during the conference (www.tinychat.com/exomagic password – daivernon) to chat with other magicians watching the conference and discuss the creative ideas you have come to expect from ExoMagic.
Are you in? I am.
