I Want to Look like That Guy

BY STUART MACDONALD
@ VOL 3 ON NOV 12, 2015

The lure of the stage and being a magician was Stuart MacDonald's destiny from the age of 9. His love for magic was so strong he made it into the Hall of Fame at 18 years old. His magic show grew into a prosperous business touring over 1000 colleges in 10 years and had the pleasure to work with Copperfield, Martin Mull, Billy Ray Cyrus and appeared on 2 Statler Brothers TV Specials. Stuart's college tour allowed him the time to learnthe art of film making. Life on the road became hours of wonderfully boring travel films for his family to suffer thru. But, it wasn't long before Stuart started to make short films and TV commercials. It was 7 fateful years ago Stuart produced, on a whim the most pirated fitness documentary ever made.

Roman Sablin, eco-lifestyle trainer and social engineer, helps to promote and implement social projects that create a better future.

He explains how to choose healthy and safe cosmetics, food, and surround yourself with the necessary minimum of high-quality things. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is in the form of the last two flyers/posters for the city of Leksand, Vol. 4 and 5 -- the latter is happening tonight, and you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page.
