Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by jonraiker, Apr 24, 2010.

  1. For Dan...Did you ask David for the job or did he seek you out?

    For JB...What were you doing when you decided to make and start "Theory 11"?

    Thanks guys for your time and hope you have plenty of "water" to drink while talking tonight.
  2. To J. Bayme:

    You've been a player in the industry for a while now, you started working for Ellusionist but left to start Theory11. Why did you choose to focus on being a leader in the industry as opposed to a more traditional career in magic, and what is it like?

    Dan White:

    How did you become such a big name in magic? And, after fulfilling so many roles in the business, such as creator and consultant, what has been you're favorite or most valuable working experience?
  3. How does the shooting process go? (storyboards, etc...) or do you just whim it with a basic idea in your head?

    All of the released products seem to be of great quality, rivaling bigger budget productions. How much filming experience do you have prior to shooting for T11?

    and a random one for fun.

    What were each of your occupations before magic came into play? Or an alternative question, what occupation would you love to pursue outside magic?

    1. What’s something you’ve seen or done recently that really inspired you, be it magic or not?

    2. Working professionals lives are obviously very involved in magic but your jobs by their very nature seem to require you to be consumed in it. Do you ever experience magic burnout and just need to get away for a bit? If so what is your escape route?
  16. Is there a certain type of personal criteria that has to be met before you will perform an effect?

    Dan - Do you ever feel rushed to create an effect for David because of certain deadlines, and in turn feel the effect won't be as good as if you had more time?
  17. JB and Dan - Are you 100 percent happy with what you do for a living, or have you ever wondered what if i did.......?
  18. What first got you into magic, and when? Was is seeing a magician on the street, or watching a tv special, or just being show an effect?
  19. Last question from me i think!

    How does Theory 11 operate? Like who does the customer service, who packages product, who accepts media submissions etc? How many people in all of these areas are needed to run Theory 11 smoothly?
  20. Did you guys know each other before you started Theory 11?
