Whether you're new to magic of already performing the occasional show, Will Stelfox will show you how he went from learning his first magic trick to becoming a full time successful street performer in under a year. In this comprehensive DVD, Will teaches you the five phases that turn complete strangers into satisfied audiences who are glad to pay you then and there for your entertainment. He then covers the different personalities that spectators have, and shows you how to treat each of them in a different way for the best results.

Will Stelfox also teaches you how to appear as a professional, which often acquires paid events from audience members. Afterwards, he goes into the stages that allow you to safely make the transition from your day job into performing magic as a career. To help you get started, Will Stelfox also teaches you his touches on the magical coin levitation and also teaches you a card transposition that leaves the spectator in 100% belief that you stole their signed card out of THEIR pocket. With real-time performances on the streets, in-depth teaching sessions and an exclusive interview with Andrew Gerard, this DVD is an instant staple of any magician's arsenal. *Floating Coin techniques borrowed from thecreations of Julie Detmer

Finally a classy busking video Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 27th, 2013
This is a brilliant video. Other busking videos I own feature people abusing, embarrassing and generally treating their audience poorly. This video is a breath of fresh air is it teaches that you can make money on the street by presenting good magic, respecting your audience and having artistic integrity. I loved it.

The Business of Street Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 22nd, 2012
Having been absorbed in the hobby of Magic for over four years, I thought I had heard it all---but this DVD re-kindled my 'beginner's interest' again. I really can't say enough about this DVD. With a running-time close to 2 hours---and the quality of instruction, tips, and advice---I can definitely say I got my money's worth. Will Stelfox is a very personable consultant when it comes to busking for a living. He covers all the angles, from crowd-management to finances---and a couple of knock-out, crowd-stopping tricks to boot! (His take on the coin-levitation is very clever!) Do not be fooled by his punk-style appearance---you can learn a lot from this guy. Highly recommend.

My style. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 30th, 2014
A no-fail method on how to make the money working close-up on the streets, worth the bucks! This is quite different from what I see from most performers and is off the beaten path. It's not the only way, it's 2-3 tricks and superb tips on what to do and how to react to specific situations, easy to listen to and watch. Not much to say but if you want to start making money on the street and want to slowly quit your day job and take up magic, this DVD is a good place to start.

Sidewalk act orientated Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 16th, 2014
If you view this for what it is- a talk about starting a sidewalk act on the streets - it is ideal for people just starting out.
Typically a sidewalk act is where you start and, while it does not cover everything, it will get out there earning money if you have an act, some common sense and a good population base.
I particularly like his genteel but hip style. He covers the draw, spectators, the crowd and the tip and gives you a very realistic expectation of what you'll earn starting out. Nice to see someone telling you that you may not make a fortune.
Ideal for those starting out with that small act and you can gradually source out other dvds that cover a more aggressive style and work out where you want to be as a performer.

Good material Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 7th, 2015
The DVD is good material and covers all aspects of how to be a full time street performer.About 45 % of the DVD covers all the technical aspects of street magic ,the rest 55 % is dedicated to the mathematics of how to work out quitting your day job and becoming a full time street performer.I have given it 5 stars however, I strongly feel if he could have covered the aspects of how to make your street magic more strong by touching on topics like pacing, clarity and building your character as a performer instead of focusing on how to become a full time street magician the DVD could have been of more value.
