The planning of the course (lessons, skype lectures, workshops, your own time) was relevant to the course contents.
1: I do not agree at all / 10: I agree completely
Yes, indeed. All of the presented lectures and talks I found very relevant. The workshops and the exercises, was very good and important for digesting and integrating what we had learned. The short talks from the others students, were very inspiring and a good way to get to learn each other and the students works and points of view. I would have like that there where more movement based sessions, to give a heightened consciousness of the body and movement. Also, I would have liked more lectures from other areas of performing arts that related/could be related to magic (like in Magi 1).
Furthermore I would have liked if the times for “work on own projects” and lectures/exercises were changed every other day, so Magi 2 would have lectures in the morning and work on own projects in the afternoon every other day – and lectures in the afternoon and work on own projects in the morning every other other day. Switching these times between Magi 1 and 2.
The workshop with Tim Star was a very good eye opener on the mechanical/construction side of magic, which I enjoyed a lot – and it has influenced my approach to magic-making since.
Well I think it all worked out but there were some lessons that was not really prepared properly, I know and understand why, but as a student you put a lot of effort into this and of course you want your teachers to be prepared.
Very much! I was sceptical about the skype lectures but they worked out just fine and two of the are amongst my favourite lectures I ever attended!
I really liked the structure of the courses, at the moment I do not have any suggestions for change.
