GeniiCon 2017: Bernard Bilis on posting magic  online: “If they see everything on the web, they don’t come to see you for the lecture”


The internet has allowed magic to flourish in a way that it could only have dreamed of even a decade or two ago, but with the ability to disseminate information instantly comes responsibility. Does posting tutorials and videos online help your brand or does it make your live work less important?

In part four of our five-part interview with Bernard Bilis at GeniiCon 2017, the illusionist talks about why he shies away from posting his material on the internet. It’s to say that he’s completely against it, but he’s far pickier about what he posts because “if they see everything on the web, they don’t come to see you for the lecture.”
