Will Houstoun & Steve Thompson
When the pandemic broke, Will Houstoun and Steve Thompson set up a project called Video Chat Magic where users would pay a monthly fee and get access to incredible magic designed for video chat software such as Zoom. It caught fire, and they ended up getting contributions from Richard Wiseman, Max Maven, Larry Fong, Pete McCabe, Jim Steinmeyer, Marc Kerstein and many others.
In this episode, Steve and Will talk about the project, how it got started, what problems they faced and the charitable angle which really made the whole thing incredible.
The book is available today at https://www.vanishingincmagic.com/magic-books/video-chat-magic/ but if you want the physical copy, act quickly, there are very few available.
