It just shows what a simple press release (and keeping in touch persistantly) will do. We recently were able to gain statewide publicity and appreciation for our magic convention:
The S.C.A.M. (South Carolina Association of Magicians) Convention 2003 was profiled on the SC ETV Arts program BEAT February 12 and 16, 2003. The documentary piece features Steve Beam, John Tudor, Bob Little, Harry Allen, Tom Jones and Rachel Wild, Robert Moreland, and several others; shot spontaneously in dealer room and lecture environments. The program was broadcast throughout the state of South Carolina; and captures the unique atmosphere of a magician's gathering in a fun, yet respectful way.
