Having been to about 20 L&L shoots, I can honestly say that nobody EVER asked me to react a certain way or paid me. I drove 200 miles each may to get to the shoots for the love of magic. I always reacted genuinely and it seemed to me that everyone there was just having a great time...being fed well might have helped ;-)
But the best part was getting to watch world-class talent performing for a small audience that I was a part of.
Just my 2 cents...

Its interesting to hear everyone's input on this topic. I have two opinions on this (only two):

1) People behave differently when they are on camera versus when they are not. I don't think its a conscious decision by the spectators, but I do think they "ham it up" when the camera is rolling.

2) L&L has found a consistent group of spectators that really enjoy magic. Where many audiences are a cross section of people from people who love magic to people that are only casual observers of magic, all the L&L spectators are people who really appreciate and love magic. Thus L&L is making sure that every spectator is one that will respond in a big way. People like Frank, Scotty, David, Janelle, etc really do enjoy seeing good magic and I think there responses show the highest potential effect a magician can have on the right audience. The key being a strong performance on the right audience.

My two cents Smile

I've always wondered - how can one be a part of the L/L audience during a shoot?

Seems like I remember a syndrome from DSM-IV in my Ab Psych class that talked about behavior being changed when the subject knows they are being watched. Any help current or past Psych majors?

Not quite sure of the syndrome, but socially it's called the Hawthorne effect - where people change or improve their behavior when they know they are being 'studied', common in workplaces or during experiments

This is an old thread, but looking at John Mendoza DVD's I can say he has the two nicest looking girls sitting at his left and right, mainly the short hair woman on his left
