Nice to see you in here Marco. Got the DVD of Season 1 of your show and loved it, come you only have one post, when there's clearly 7 in this thread alone?

I noticed the same thing, 7 posts but Marco's avatar says only one. I guess the first one's real, the rest are all illusions.

Good luck Marco, I enjoy your work and your integrity.

Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.

The author of the DVD (Doug McKenzie) is a former paid consultant to my company. He was instrumental in the creation of this effect. Nevertheless, he was not authorized to release this routine to another performer or to the public.

If that's the case, then it sounds to me as if your beef should be with Doug McKenzie, and not David Blaine. But perhaps you can elaborate on a) why Blaine should have known McKenzie was not authorized to release a routine that he, presumably, developed, and b) whether there was an agreement between yourself and McKenzie that he was not permitted to authorize the release of the effect.

Let me add that I'm not arguing against you ... only seeking clarification.

If you had done that before the age of IM-ing then you'd have had something unique.

To whom it may concern:

We are aware there have recently been discussions within the magic community regarding the release of Phoneomenon on DVD.

Please be advised that the issues surrounding this release have been resolved between the concerned parties, with an agreement between Marco Tempest and Doug McKenzie, Paul Harris and the distributor of the DVD. The DVD is now authorized by Mr. Tempest with the following disclaimer at the start of the DVD:

I would like to thank Marco Tempest for all of his help and support.
Marco was instrumental in the early visibility of Phone-omenon.
Marco's own version is not explained on this DVD and remains his intellectual property.

Thanks to all of those instrumental in bringing this matter to a satisfactory resolution.

Best regards,
Marco Tempest

In this day and age where so many people have their intellectual property ripped off outright, it is nice to hear that everything worked out for you, Marco. Let's hope that all of magic follows this example and moves forward with respect for the inventors and originators in our art.
