also sean fields worked for criss angel. I performed a stage act for sean fields once, and will again this year.


Lucky you! How did you go about getting that?



Well, Im a member of the SYM, and we have comptetions every year, ones close up and ones stage. So he was a judge for our stage contest. Whats really cool is after the trophies and all that stuff we go into a room with the judges and they give us feedback and tips. I think there was about four judges one was sean fields and the other was brian glow, I cant remember about the others though. Although I didnt get to speak with sean because he had to go somewhere after the show, but he left a few comments for my mentalism routine and he liked it. So it turned out pretty well. :D


I wish you the best for this year.

All of Criss' "stunts" are all the same: Criss is supposed to do something, then something goes wrong and he should be dead, then all of the paid actors get "scared," then Criss pops up and all of the paid actors can't believe it. :wink:

And you know this because "Magicians" told you so. You thought the whole thing was "Real" before you were enlightened...

Dude, are you crazy? I knew it wasn't all real, I'm a working magician too you know. I'm just saying, I didn't want to believe he was using camera tricks so I asked if there was another way. I also asked "how did he get out" because it looked like there was no other routes. I don't want to say anything else to you because you're a mod, and well, I'd get in trouble.

Have a beautiful day my friend.

Maloney- So you knew it was fake, yet you thought he was going to die? You thought Criss was going to die from a fake stunt? Okay.

Trying to compare what David Copperfield did in order to make Criss look better doesn't work. David doesn't have hired actors. He will have an audience that is under contract, but they aren't stooges or anything like that. It's simply because David wants to make his TV performances the best he possibly can. Which means multiple shots. Which also means that it takes quite some time, so he needs to have an audience that understands that, because they could be there for quite some time. As for David's version of the effect, it was performed live, and the outcome was the same as it was shown on TV. So the audience got to see it performed live. The only thing that may have been a little different on TV is the ending, as in he filmed the same ending multiple times to get the best shot. That is something David does because he's obsessive.

Criss, on the other hand, completely created something out of Hollywood. It might as well been in a movie about giant gophers who are trying to kill the world by eating bananas, because that's how much truth was in Criss's little stunt. David's and Criss's versions can't even be compared, except for the fact that the general premise was the same. But the actual effect was very different. As in David can actually do what you see on TV in real life, when Criss needs paid actors, camera editors, and a lot of help because he simply doesn't have a clue.

Please! You thought the whole thing was real. Go back and look at your posts. Now, just like everyone predicted, you are embarrassed by how easily you were fooled and now you're trying to cover it up. Even went back and edited some of your posts I see.
