Thanks Rudy and everyone for another great session today (Sat. June 20, 2020)!  I ALWAYS learn so much from these sessions, and today was no exception as it was extremely informative, with TMF ”giants” Mike Powers, Gracie Morgan, Axel, Andru, Luis, and the rest of the TMF gang contributing, including a few newcomers who shared outstanding magic for us (nice work, Jennifer!).  It’s great to experience magic in such a positive and supportive atmosphere - I’m glad TMF is not “zoomed out” and continues to schedule these sessions on a regular basis!  Very special thanks to Rudy for setting this up for everyone!- johnny

Hey thanks Rudy, Johnny and Axel, I'm glad you liked what I showed you during the session. It was a great session as always and I also want to thank all the others who demonstrated and taught an effect or move. And to the ones who were there for the first time, welcome to the Saturday sessions, as you can see they are lots of fun and are also informative. Probably being on camera for the first time is the most difficult time, once you go beyond that, you will want to share something every time.

See you around everyone!

Thanks everyone for your contributions on Saturday. I really enjoyed the session. Any forum member that hasn't yet hopped onto these events should really give it a try. The sessions are a very friendly environment and a great learning experience.

Thanks to JohnnyNewYork for his oil and water presentation. You were about 2/3 of the way through it before I recognized the source and thought it was a really smart take on it.

Thanks you all for sharing your thoughts about our Saturday Sessions. I’m so glad that you find them valuable. I fell like they are one of the best things about this community.

I appreciate all of those who shared something with us. You are the ones who make these sessions a fun and valuable experience for those who attend! Thanks!!

Rudy

As I emailed Rudy, Saturday I was travelling and it was not possible for me to attend the session [frown] 

We have a saying in Portuguese that goes "there are more tides than sailors", so I really look forward to next Saturday session (besides the one we have with John Carey next Saturday) [smile]

It is great when constructive feedback is given during these sessions.  It doesn't come as naturally as when you are sitting together with someone, but it is possible to "sort of" duplicate that experience on Zoom.  It requires patience, as it is possible to have several people jumping in at once, but that rarely poses any issues.

I think Mikes trick was a perfect example of the type of discussion that can be helpful.  Discussion of the plot and the choice of reveal was helpful.  Discussion of the potential methods of switching packets, how to switch, when to switch, where the cards begin, where they end up, all good topics that were bantered about.  

Even if you don't perform yourself, you can still engage in discussion.  So don't let the fact you may not want to show anything prevent you from attending.

There is much to be learned.  Even if you just come to watch and say hi!

It's not like you don't have a day job!  Seriously, we are fortunate to have the sessions in the first place, and then to receive an edited video on top of it.  Bonus!

Let's all remember how good we have it.  Maybe I should start a thread about that...

Thanks Ray. I've decided (based on some encouragement from Mike Powers) that I probably don't need to take all the time necessary to edit the video. I tend to be a perfectionist and want the video to look as good as possible for all of those who attend, but it's probably not necessary.

If I simply uploaded the video 'as-is', you'd all have the video about 2 hours after the session. 

Going forward, that's what I'll do.

Have a great day!

Rudy

Glad you've chosen that route Rudy. You have a lot on your plate already and video editing is time consuming. That's especially true in the case of editing a 2+ hour TMF session. I suspect that you go through the entire video looking for places that need work. That's two hours just to see all the video plus all the editing time. 

In many ways I think the unedited video is the best anyway. I've made mistakes that you edited out. Maybe the mistakes were instructive?? I think we're better off just making our own decisions about whether or not to skip forward.

Now you have some extra time to hang out and drink a glass of wine with your beautiful wife!

I'm sad I missed the live session.  I was family-ing.  I was hanging out with my family and neighbors in our back yards cooking out, drinking beer during the nice hot day.  I even did a bit of magic for them.  And when I make a coin appear from between the cards (that they chose), all while not wearing a shirt...  It just makes the mystery that much stronger.  LOL

I agree though about the video edits.  Maybe if there's something huge or obvious that just needs to be omitted, but otherwise, as Mike said, the mistakes can be instructive.  In fact, some really good magic was either created from or inspired by mistakes.  As mentioned, we all appreciate what you've done with the forum and sessions.  I look forward to many more!

Tom
