i disagree with paddy, I think most people don't want to see magicians. They want to see entertainers. The way you put the video together, laymen would love it. I will say dbaker was right that it needs more magic and less....... other stuff.

I looked at these as a promo, i.e. something that you send to festivals or other events to sell your act. You have less than 1 minute to make a GOOD impression on a buyer. That's how I reviewed and that's why I am sticking to what I said.

Yes you have to entertain, but to sell your act you need to drop all the extraneous stuff and get to the point

I like the Sean Fields Music. :D
Try wearing Shoes, they're fun and look nice. Some Nice Nike Air Force 1s wouldn't hurt. :D

heys guys!! hahah thanks huh we got another trick coming up soon just have to find time to edit that Yeahs that guy in the glasses is my best mate! but yeah there are 4 of us plus few camera guys and 1 editing guy! so got quite a big team here! and we even just found a sound guy so he will be making th beats for us. Glad you guys liked it! I wanted to make it more appealing more to laymen, every time i perform They are always so impressed with our handling thats why i did the promo with so many cuts. Also in my next videos there will be 10% sleight of hand and the rest will be showmanship! Thanks everyone for taking the time to comment! i really appreciate it!

ps. haha! i got busted without the shoes!!! didnt think people would see!! hahahaha

Hey Sh4de!...It's just there's only two magic clubs in my area, one of them is comprised of people fifty and older and the other one is an IBM ring which I'm not good enough for.


BULL CRAP!!! The IBM is for ANYONE interested in magic. My ring has several kids and adults who are just starting in magic, we help them all we can and encourage them to learn enough so they will enter into contests.

Yep, have to admit it. I have less than "very tiny" respect for the man.


Sorry to hear that. Oh well, more of his routines for me!!! I guess it comes down to taste...

I dislike Jays teaching style...it's just...I don't know, boring...

there are no magic clubs, rings, or socies in my are so I was thinking about starting one, the problem is that II don't know any other magiccians and I wouldn't know where to begin...

Are you sure? Did you check out the IBM and SAM sites? There are rings and assemblies all over the place. Heck there are 3 rings alone in the Cincinnati - Dayton OH area alone; rings 5, 71, and 342. This is all within a 40 mile radius. Google the organizations and go th their websites and check your area.

You went a little too far there kid.
Converses look nice, I'll give you that but they're crap performance wise. Try jumping from a really high place with those and see if it doesn't hurt.

Manicania,

Man between this and the stereotyping thread I am beginning to question how you look at ethnicity. It's sad really.
