Hope this Forum is better then the other forums....
to introduce myself. My name is Michael Frymus, i am 17 and i am an illusionist. I have storage for these illusions, my dads a truck driver so i got transport, and money... well, not to worry about at the moment.....
I have been emailed from Paramount Canada's Wonderland if i want to perform any "scary" or anything to a halloween theme illusion show.
I can only find a PTS system that uses flying "Ghosts" for $2,200.
but that seems a bit too much just for one effect. Even though i know you can do a lot more with it, but this is not what i really like doing. I prefer large props.
I want to perform some illusions that you can perform anytime and would also go with the halloween theme with a little customization - Decoration.
Maybe some interlude would be good.
And thats all i can think of.
*This is an outdoor stage, so it wont have a lot of things that an indoor theatre would have. But it does have a LOT of lights and huge sound systems i can use.
Frymus, you need to wake up and smell the coffee... if you are seriously interested in getting into stage illusions (and please don't tell us you are an experienced stage illusionist because, by your own admission, you did your first ever stage show in Nov. 2007 in your school), then you need to be prepared to lay out SERIOUS bucks. You keep starting threads in this and other forums in which you ask for directions on where you can obtain illusions similar to extremely high quality professional stage illusions performed by the likes of David Copperfield, Lance Burton, and others. And you balk at having to pay $2,200 for a single effect.
You have a lot to learn... and Craig Browning and others have actually given you some very good advice.
Now you've left TalkMagic and come to a forum with considerable fewer working professional magicians, yet you expect to get more helpful advice.
Well... here: Buy Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic. Get your dad to help you build a few of the stage illusions in it... the Haunted House illusion might be appropriate.
For the kind of stage illusions to which you've been posting YouTube videos links, $2,200 is a drop in the bucket.
BTW... you say live in Toronto. Well, then... instead of wasting your time in forums, go to Browser's Den or Morrissey Magic and ask the folks there for help. You don't need Penguin or E or any other online resources -- you live in relatively close proximity to two of the best brick & mortar magic shops in Canada. I envy you for that... but only that.
