I imagine after the initial run, this will turn into like "best performance of the week" or something to encourage just this type of quality. Otherwise it'll be a financial fleecing of the company as everybody posts half-arsed videos to get their tricks for free.
I have faith in our peeps
You're braver than I for having such faith in them.
But I do hope you're right. It would be great to see more people out there actually performing, getting some real expeirence with real people (close family doesnt count in my book).
Cause if you're serious about getting into magic, you have to perform for people and entertain them. Thats the hardest part, not the sleights or gimmicks or tricks. ITs about time some of these people see that. side note;
Id really like to see some of these posters, post videos with original presentations as well. Not just copy the original word for word, move for move. Id like to see some creativity out there. Maybe even offer a bonus for those who go out there with a real and original performance of the effect
. Thats one of the funnest, yet hardest, parts of magic and entertaining.
