Saturday Night Contest - Daniel Garcia Roundtable

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by j.bayme, Oct 2, 2010.

    It's been 4 weeks since we posted our last roundtable discussion, so we thought it was time to break out the microphone and kick things off with a fresh session tonight. Tonight's guest is an icon of modern magic and an inspiration to the next generation of magicians. He consulted for David Blaine's most recent television special, and he has lectured at pretty much every magic convention under the sun (including Magic-Con 2010). His name? Daniel Garcia.

    We're here tonight primarily to talk about one thing. Actually, three things - the Daniel Garcia Projects 4, 5, and 6 volumes. They're coming soon, and theory11 has the exclusive download rights on all three. Tonight is your chance to ask DG any question you desire - whether that be about the upcoming set or any other topic on your mind. Ask about the creative process, your favorite DG releases, his goals for the future, and the contents of 4-6.

    Anything is fair game. Questions must be submitted on or before 11:00pm EST tonight for consideration. The best of the best questions will be answered in a podcast to be posted later this evening. Limit of THREE questions per member, so choose your questions wisely and let's have a fun, interactive, intellectual discussion.

    One random member who participates tonight will receive the new DGP set as a download, sent on the house immediately following the release.

  7. Hey Danny (Or inferior robot impersonator of Danny)

    I'm sure as a creative person, it's incredibly easy to create LOTS of crap (and I'm not implying you do create crap by any means) just saying. How do you decide what you want to perform for an audience? Is it whether or not it looks good, feels comfortable, or whether or not you feel the audience should really care about what you perform? I hope that made sense.
     
  8. Although a professional and I must say one of my favorite magicians... Who inspires you to keep doing magic.

    2) What's your funniest experience from performing?
    3) Where do you like performing most?
     
  12. 1. To you, what does creativity mean? Is everyone born with the same amount of creativity and if not, then is it possibly to build up creativity?

    2. Who do you think, if anybody, surpasses you in the form of having a creative mind?

    Thank you DG for your time, legacy and input in the world of magic!
     
  18. Uno) You are a funny guy, but there are comedy magicians who use magic as a way to get laughs. In other words, they put the comedy before the magic. Do you believe in this method of performing and what are your thoughts on this?

    Dos) You are seen very much a creator in the magic industry, does creating give you more of a "high" than performing, or do you like performing more?

    Tres) Do you have any other interests other than magic, and do these interests help inspire your magic and creation of new effects?
     
  19. 1. How long do you "test" a trick before you decide to release it?

    2. Even though you're a working magician, do you ever just go out and hit the streets to stay sharp?

    3. What kind of magic do you see yourself performing in 5, 10, and 15+ years?
     
  20. Obviously, Danny, you have been doing and creating magic for a longtime; have you ever experienced a "creative block" where you feel there is a lack of inspiration? If so how do you get over it? And have you ever felt that you needed to take a break from magic in general?
