Saturday Night Roundtable - Luis de Matos (posted)

    In less than 6 weeks, I'll be jumping on a plane to Portugal to speak at the Essential Magic Conference. The conference is organized by Luis de Matos, David Britland, Marco Tempest, and countless other contributors that made last year's event so remarkable. It's the only magic conference that takes place in your living room - you can watch it on any computer in the world, live, in high definition. And the best part of all is the price: $90. To watch 32 incredible presentations... and yours truly! You'll also receive a DVD set, shipped on the house, of every single presentation. It's an incredible deal.

    Tonight, you have the opportunity to ask the man that started it all any question you desire. That man is Luis de Matos, and he also happens to be one of the most successful stage and screen magicians of the past century. His magic has been seen by millions as a result of his constant touring show and television performances weekly. As far as I'm concerned, he's one of the hardest working performers in magic, and his success is a direct result.*

    Submit up to three questions tonight for Luis to answer in a podcast to be posted within the next 24 hours. Your questions can be about stage magic, EMC, the speakers, his life, his experience, his work - whatever you'd like. For those of you who aspire for a career on stage and screen, this is one of those rare opportunities to ask questions and get guidance and advice from one of the world's best. Make it count.*

    TWO random members who post questions that are asked during the podcast will receive a FREE access code to the Essential Magic Conference. Combined, that's $180 in prizes for your questions. But the advice you'll receive from Luis, I firmly believe, will be worth much more.

    NOTE :: The podcast has been posted! This roundtable discussion has now concluded. Listen to it now here!
