Interesting things going on in the online show world. Bill Blagg did an illusion show where you paid about $10 to watch the live stream. He presented the show in his warehouse with full lighting and production.

David Davinci performed a live illusion show from a warehouse as well as part of a fundraiser project that he usually performs for.

Mario the Maker Magician offered one of his shows online for the first time in order to help raise funds for a theatre in Portland Oregon that he enjoys performing at.

Lots of creative ways to use these platforms.

If you are NOT familiar with the BM project (Haim Goldenberg - Amir Lustig - Guy Bavli) it is one of the most practical and dynamic yet easy to perform virtual mentalism! https://bakoremagic.com/collections/fron......-project
We are doing a live workshop on the BM-PROJECT tomorrow Sunday June 7th. 3pm. It is FREE for those who purchased the BM-PROJECT on www.BakoreMAGIC.com and once you have your order number you can gain access to our BM facebook group where we share with the other professional many routines and effects based on this concept. Also our workshop will be LIVE on that group. here is a video explaining about the workshop: https://vimeo.com/426555914/f98571b1b8

Have you seen this from Theory 11 - it's a series of illusions designed for Zoom / Instagram etc.

They are both interesting illusions to do online. Both require carefully set up perspectives to do correctly. They are both currently filmed from the performers POV which isn't how anyone normally works on Zoom... but with a little practice, both can be done on a traditional zoom/webcam format with no problems.

The key words are "require carefully set up perspectives". I have downloaded the Melting Card.
A little trial and error in the construction but I will accomplish this. Just may take me more than 30 minutes.

I also purchased the melting card - I wanted it for instagram. The illusion and understanding how it works is very good. Maybe not $12 good, but good!

Wow. So I wanted to attend The Present and was on the email notification list for the next release of tickets (show extended through October 10). Went out that night and they were already sold out! Congrats to Helder Guimarães for a runaway success!

I hope sometime in the future he will be willing to lecture on his experiences. It would be amazing to hear his thinking on constructing this show.

Both heartening and saddening at the same time. Thank you for the link.

P.S. Some of the comments are brutal.

If it has Paul Drapers on it I'd suggest muting it for just that.

Well with the pandemic and all not much room left in the club, but I have a limited number of spaces going fast! When they are gone.... I'll have some more limited spaces going fast.

Just saw (on Linkedin of all places) that Stuart McDonald is going to have an interactive online show on Zoom. Limited tickets to help keep it interactive. This looks interesting.

The interactive zoom shows are an interesting idea.
Some broadway performers are putting together an interactive murder mystery theatre.

I’m grateful for online content. Podcasts, YouTube live streams, etc. but I miss live entertainment so much.

Shawn Farquhar has started doing online lectures: limited audiences and has been selling out.

What is the purpose or point of posting about all these people who have online shows? Is there supposed to be a benefit to this?

I could probably list a couple of hundred magicians now doing this but what would be the point or benefit?

Also back on page 1, you stressed your disappointment with Shawn's online content, now you're promoting it?

I'm trying to understand this mindset and how it supposed to be a business topic or help one's business?

I don't pretend to know the reasoning behind each person's post. I would suggest that in studying the effectiveness of a new medium, the larger the sample size, the greater the potential understanding and ability to formulate a fair assessment. I'll admit that my initial feelings were that this was a stupid way of connecting for magic. I'll also admit that I've seen some very effective examples of ways creative people have leveraged this new medium in new ways. Yes, I know that most aren't that great but that follows the same part of the bell curve as other arts so there's no real surprise there. MOST people in any subset are mediocre. That's just the way it is. I continue to study and be impressed with those that transcend the rest as has happened here.
