  2. 1) Did your creative process change from creating close-up effects on your own during your 365 project, to working with a team of consultants and creating stage illusions for David Copperfield?

    2) You've certainly created a lot of magic. How do you decide what effects to keep working on and release, or give to someone else to use, like the card to ceiling for David Blaine's special?

    3) Will you ever go back and try to finish your 365 project?

    Thanks Calen! You're truly one of the most creative thinkers in magic today and the future of magic is bright with guys like you leading the way!

  13. I was expecting a Fake Reveal contest, but I do have some questions for Calen!

    1. When it comes to creating new effects, do you find the method first and then create the effect or have an effect in mind and then find the method?

    2. Being as young as you are, how important do you think your '365 days of magic' affect your present (consulting, working with major companies etc.)?

    3. After seeing Odyssey, I was wondering if it showed an evolution in your magic (method-wise and effect-wise)?

  14. 1-when did you start performing street magic?

    2-How to you think of these really creative methods and how long does it normally take to get a draft of the effect down.

    3- do you think that you cold think of a method to change an apple into a banana visually?

    Thanks Toby

  18. Hi Calen,

    Not really into ring magic but here are my three questions.

    1) Can you give us a quick rundown of your productive moments throughout any given day?
    2)Have you ever had a dream about something related to magic and if so what was the dream about?
    3)Would you tell someone completely new to magic to purchase your effect simply to benefit your agenda, or would you tell them to get a grasp on the basics first then try your effect irrespective of whether it is simple or not? (For example buying the latest effect in card magic before reading The Royal Road to Card Magic)
