Have you ever wondered why one magician with skill, talent, and a pleasant personality gets minimal reaction from his audience while another with equal or less talent can bring the house down.
Most magicians think it is about the tricks, whereas it is actually about the experience you create for your audience. The tricks are only the tools to help you create this experience.
On this DVD, taped live at The World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas, Quentin Reynolds shows you how to double the reaction to your current repertoire without changing any effect. While speaking from his experience as a children's entertainer, the principles shared here apply to any magical performance from-close-up to stage.
You will discover:
The simple formula on how to create a world class act, how to develop your most Suitable performing style, the single most common mistake made by stage magicians, the correct use of silence in your show, how to elicit gasps, how to build the magical moment, and how to build a balanced show so everything flows easily,
Quentin uses examples from his own repertoire to illustrate the points he makes. With 30 years experience as a professional magician and over 10,000 children's shows in every conceivable performing condition, Quentin explains simply and clearly how you can perform like a pro and dramatically improve the audience reaction at every show you do.
What people are saying:
"Finally, a huge surprise for me was Quentin Reynolds. I do not do kid's shows. But I went to his lecture. BRILLIANT! This is a man who has thought about entertaining young people. He recognizes there are other styles than 'Hi, I'm Mr. Goofy let's scream and yell a lot and make your parents think you are having fun!' His magic was well thought out, and his approach to understanding the dynamics of children's magic should be considered by anyone thinking of doing a birthday party." - Brad Henderson
" Your Lecture at the WMS in Vegas was outstanding. Anybody can tell us what to do....you told us WHY. It's clear that you understand the philosophy and psychology of magic specifically and entertaining generally. And, it's also clear that you're speaking from TONS of experience. I've been a professional magician since 1970 and I learned a lot from your lecture. Thank You - Dennis Loomis
