Essential Magic Conference news

Thank You

Posted by Blog, over 8 years ago. 15 comments

A big thank you to everyone who attended the Essential Magic Conference. It was the most extraordinary event and a big part of its success is due to the feedback, comments and support we received from you, our members.

All the guests have now left Studio 33 and we need to catch up on some work. Here is the plan:

Our first task is to get the videos of the sessions online so that you can watch them on-demand. This will be a two stage process. And yes, we already know that we are late in uploading them but we hope you will forgive us bearing in mind that you have until 1st July 2011 to watch them all again.

The first stage of the process consists in uploading each session. Session 1 is already online. And so far we have had 2500 views. So we’re guessing that some of you are watching more than once. We don’t blame you.

The second stage is to edit the sessions so that each individual presentation can be uploaded on line. This will make it easier for you to find exactly the presentation, trick or item you want.

Also these videos will be uploaded at a much higher quality. We’ve seen them and can promise that the quality is amazing. Some of you already figured out how to plug your computers into your digital televisions and watch EMC live on the big screen. Our high quality video will make this a joy.

Our third task is to transfer the videos to DVDs. These will have a menu system so that you can find what you want. They will be mailed free of charge to your home address. Again this will take some time but we expect to deliver them before the end of the year. The purpose of the DVDs is to ensure that you have the material forever once your subscription to the site has expired.

So please please please update your Profiles. We need your name. Mail address. And email address. If this information is not correct, you might miss out on some EMC benefits.

A Newsletter is being sent out today to all members. It will outline more of our plan and detail the freebies that are coming your way.

That’s enough blogging for tonight. There is much work to do. Thank you again for all your support and please spread the word about EMC 2011.
