Saturday Night Roundtable - James Dickson

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Casey Rudd, May 21, 2016.

  1. What is the gimmick-making process like?
    In your opinion, is it harder to create an original effect that utilizes a gimmick or an original effect that is non-gimmicked (and why)?

  2. Did not have the time to read all of the other replies so I hope I am getting in original questions.... 1. What is one other classic trick you think should be revamped and made easier to do/easier to present/more audience friendly/better in general. 2. What magicians have you drawn the most inspiration from? 3. What was the first thing you did in magic to make money with? (example: doing a show, creating and selling a trick)
