Perhaps you remember the Augmented Reality video by magician Marco Tempest. Go ahead, click that link. We’ll wait. It’s six minutes of awesome.
Tempest, Louis de Matos and David Britland have teamed up to bring the next great magic conference. Before you starting sighing, saving money and checking your frequent flyer miles, check this out: The Essential Magic Conference is all online. In 60 seconds:
The guest list of magicians includes Cyril Takayama, Lennart Green, Barry and Stuart, Gazzo, Max Maven, Ponta the Smith and many more. Broadcast from Studio 33 in Ansiao, Portugal, the conference will feature lectures, performances and philosophy. Participants will have live access to the lectures as they happen, and receive DVDs of all the lectures afterward.
Yeah, it’s not as much fun as traveling. But with the economy the way it is, this might be the next best thing. The conference takes place July 15 to 17.
