Hi, I am from a border town with El Paso Texas, called Juarez in Mexico, maybe you have heard of this city before thanks to all the news around the world about the violence in the city.
I've been a magician for quite some years now, doing some gigs at restaurants and parties, but since last year i started thinking that I should do somthing for the community, something to help ease the stress of the people living in this city.
There are many good people in this city, so I thought that maybe doing something that can help put a smile on their faces and make them forget about what they are living, and transport them for a while to a magic moment, I could make people smile and bring hope that there are still good things for them.
Magic for me started to be the way to help people feel good again. I started to go on the weekends, to public places, parks, malls, some neighborhoods, and do some magic for the people, and sometimes a little show, I saw what I was creating was a great way of giving happiness, brining people together.

I am very happy of what Im doing, making the art of magic, the art af hope, a magical dream into a dream of hope, just putting a smile on these people's faces does so much for them, taking them to a confort after hearing so much negativeness in the news and streets, many of them have lost their families, jobs and hopes, when you remember them how to smile they know that they can be OK again.

I would like to have the chance to learn from the best, and give to the rest, so I can offer better things to these people that really need the moment. Maybe I don't deserve it, but I do know that the people of Juarez deserve this and much more.

Thankyou for the opportunity, I tried to submit a video that i made but it was taking to long, I will still try to send it to you anyway, so you can see how great it feels when you see these people happy for a moment.

Juan Tamariz, Gracias por tu carisma, filosofia de vida y magia y los buenos ratos que nos haces pasar.

Cant wait for the results, keep on refreshing haha.

Quoted for truth. I'm sure all of us are doing this. I'm as excited as I was when I saw my first magic performance at a restaurant. :)

While we wait, anyone want to have a productive discussion about presentation or tricks? I think I'll go to tinychat.com/tally-ho

Join me if you want! :)

With a SNC this big, this is the right way to go about it. I really appreciate the thought that the judges are putting into this. Whether I win or not, I'm glad to have shared my story with everyone.

Magic-Con's mission is to inspire CREATIVITY from real-world performers....

The written word won't suffice with such a contest. You gotta go out of the box....way out......and so I did.....

In a lyrical and poetic fashion, I composed a song on the piano describing the dynamite presenters of Magic-Con 2010.

Here is my submission: http://www.vimeo.com/9410971

In short, I've been doing magic for 10 years and I can truly appreciate the caliber of talent and vision you have for such a conference.

Cheers,
Ben Jackson

Dude, this was excellent. That was really funny. :)

Not only is it obvious you put a lot of thought and creativity into this, it's also apparent, listening to your lyrics, you're passionate about magic. Good luck to you!
