No magic convention is complete without at least one discussion of card magic. Erik Tait will teach some of the card magic that has made him a regular performer for Honda, Bark Box, and some of the biggest companies in the world. The skill level will range from preposterously easy to pretentiously difficult. Whether you are a novice magician or an expert cardician there will definitely be something here for you. You are guaranteed to walk away with at least one card trick you’ll love to perform, as well as some new moves you’ll be excited to practice.

7:00am-Virtual Show Technical Bootcamp with Erik Tait (Additional Fee: $20)
You’ve attended dozens of lectures on how to effectively perform in the virtual space. You’ve written a show that is the best representation of your magic in a zoom format. The digital curtain is about to go up, and you just realized you don’t have a digital curtain. Your zoom show looks bland, and you don’t know the first thing about how to set up your virtual stage. You’ve got the magic, but now you need the tech.
Time to go to Virtual Show Broadcasting Bootcamp.
Your stream surgeon for this 2 hour deep dive into the ins and outs of making a slick virtual show that will leave your audience thinking they are watching a professional broadcast is Erik Tait. He’s the technical mind and live-stream producer for Penguin Magic, he’s helped transition Tik Tok stars with hundreds of thousands of followers to high-quality stream environments on Twitch, and now he’s going to teach you the technical wizardry to make your zoom show look like a million bucks without spending a penny. Students in this workshop will be treated to an in-depth look at how to create scenes, transitions, and on-screen elements that add production value to any zoom show. This is not a magic class, this is a home broadcasting workshop for magicians. Erik will lead students through setting up their virtual stage, effective lighting and audio technique, how to create and manage multicamera setups, and most importantly both the basics of adding overlays and graphics into your zoom show and some advanced techniques that the pros seek him out for. The information in this workshop will be good for both Mac & PC users, and participants will also receive sample artwork they are free to use in their own virtual shows as well as a recording of the workshop for personal use. Level up your zoom show with the Virtual Show Broadcasting Bootcamp.
