EMC 2012 – Session 8 – Derren Brown

July 29th, 2012 by Magic Convention Guide

Essential Magic Conference

Keeping the Session British, Derren Brown joined us via Skype from London, on his night off no less..

Guy Hollingworth presented questions to Derren that had been asked by the EMC Registrants. We won’t go into all the questions (register and you can hear them for yourself!) but they covered pretty much every possible question you might ever want to ask Derren Brown. His influences, his first steps into magic, his background in hypnotism and more.

We were also treated to some footage from the current Derren Brown live show – Svengali and after the clip, although broken up by a bad Skype connection, Derren tried to talk in depth about what experience and emotions he wanted to give, or leave the theatre audience with.

Derren, as always answered the questions openly and in depth, but sadly the interview was cut short due to the issues with the skype connection.
