but david copperfield doesn't do anything.
He relys on the mirrors and smoke, blaine on the otherhand does the effects himself.

well you see he tells you that this is all in your face on the street magic...
then you find out half a levitation is done in a studio with wires and then they show you reactions of spectatores who saw the balducci

i'll tell you, if you claim to do all the magic on the street and even going as far as saying he doesn't use trick photography....well don't lie

he would still have my respect if the levitation that they show the t.v. audiance was the same one he showed to the peaple on the street


any ways thats my 2 cents :evil:

thats not how the trick was done

I don't think that Blaine gets his mistakes edited. He probably doesn't make that many. He is after all a professional magician. I'm not saying either, that gravity doesn't work against him, I'm simply saying that there probably aren't mistakes made.

That being said, I do believe that Blaine's specials are edited for maximum reactions and impact. Never have I seen anyone say "That was just ok" The reactions are usually cussing or OMG or big reactions and facial expressions.

Just my HO

Of course Blaine gets his mistakes "edited". They just don't show the tricks that go wrong. Though, as you said, he is a pro, he probably makes very few.

ok, let me put it this way, if you were making a tv special, would you put your mistakes in it?

lol. good call.

anyways, this whole thread is TOTAL BS. David is the reason that many of us are here, why does everyone feel the need to bash him? He edits one trick, I repeat one trick. Half of the people who criticize him can't even perform a DL, lol and david is a sufficient card handler at least.

You either don't watch copperfield a lot, or you are completely oblivious to other people's performances.

Hint: Copperfield isn't always what he seems to be. Sure you might be sitting in the audience watching, but know that many of his tricks are edited, staged, all that. (When you see Copperfield go to Hawaii or whatever...yeah, that's staged and edited several times).



What I don't get, is all these haters on DB about how things are staged or edited or faked on TV, but then no one ever acknowledges that almost 90% of pro stage magic is nothing but wires, stooges, stages effects, and editing. Most stage magic guys don't really DO a whole lot, really just put on an act while using a bunch of pre-made gizmos and illusions that do all the work. They aren't in anyway better than anything DB has done.

DB's levitation was faked???? Who cares? Newsflash: No magicians do a "real" levitation. It's true! Copperfields levitation is fake too! He's not really flying!!!

lol, I know you guys think that levitation is really possible? this is hilarious. There is absolutely no need to bash David Blaine here. He is a great performer and has made tons of people happy. Thats all I have to say.....

okay, I am sick of David Blaine bashers. Get it through your head, he edits ONE trick, that is all. He is a great magician.

btw, it says "without smoke or mirrors" it says nothing about no trick photography.
