If you had asked me a year ago to do a show on the Zoom platform, I might have said, “What’s Zoom?”
It’s not that I was unfamiliar with virtual platforms or distance interaction. I once enrolled in a master’s program in library science at Drexel University. The entire program was computer-based and virtual. We still had team projects, but my team members might be anywhere in the world. I also have a master’s degree in instructional technology, so I am used to virtual environments and being a homebody; I prefer them.
But could virtual formats work for magic and mentalism?
Aren’t performance arts intended for in-person occasions?
I love personally interacting with my audience, and I love live shows, but I have also come to love Zoom.
The Zoom Show is the ideal way to provide interactive entertainment remotely and safely.
People can participate from anywhere, any state, even any country.
Though distant and apart, we can all be in the same “room” at the same time to enjoy the show.
There is a cost-saving as travel and travel time is not a factor.
No one needs to install any special software to participate.
The most vulnerable among us may fully participate from the safety of their own home.
Zoom is easy to set up, but you don’t have to set it up. All you have to do is focus on your event. Then I will set up the meeting in Zoom, then e-mail the link to you, you may then distribute that link to your guests or provide me with their e-mail addresses, and I will do it for you.
Sure, it’s easy and convenient, but will it entertain my guests?
I have seen it, I have experienced it, I have performed on Zoom, and it works.
I think Zoom will be around as a performance venue long after the pandemic is ancient history.
If you would like information on how you can book a Zoom show, please reach out to me at David (at) David Dellman dot com.
I’d love to chat with you about it.
