Does anyone know if there is a DVD that discusses manipulations with larger objects such as 4-5 inch balls?

Actually, there is nothing on his DVDs or videos about the larger objects you are talking about.

Contact George Saterial. Hr may not be willing to release his effect, but it's worth a try. You can see a demo of it on his website, in his dove routine.

Great thanks, that picture on his site is exactly what I'm looking for. I have emailed him. Hopefully he can help or point me in the right direction.

For those that are wanting a bit more info, here are some pics from Georges site that explain what I am trying to do.

There use to be a magician that manipulated Zombie balls, years ago. I cannot remember his name. I did see tape of his act once and it was not all that impressive. He multiplied them while having his arms crossed. Maybe someone else on the Café remembers him. He may have been a FISM winner at one time.

Wmhegbli,
the first person coming to my mind would be "Peki" from Germany he multiplies big zombie type ballls in his act.
The crossing arm multiplication is correct.
I even think he did make a place at F.I.S.M. one time.


That's a good memory you've got ;-)

True, not that impresssive but ok.
I really like his method for turning 1 ball (regular size) into 3 balls with only one hand - that's pretty cool

Take Care,
Philipp

So do you know where I can find information on such manipulation? My applicaition of the routine will not be zombie balls but it's close enough. If I can get some information on this it will provide me the info I need for my routine.

To my knowledge there is nothing in print or video on doing this type of manipulation. This is something they came up with on there own or as I have found out in the past, there are underground trainers for many of the unique ideas we see. It is the old story, it is who you know.

Peki may be correct, but I believe there was another magician who was a doctor in Philiadelphia, Penn. U.S.A. who did this also. He had a very long and hard to pronounce name. I always thought he was from Europe, but then after many years found out he was her in the States.

If you would have seen Lance Burtons IBM competition act and his act a year later, you would have not know it was the same magician. In a year he developed that award winning FISM act. He had lots of advice from Johnny Thompson and others that lead to his act.

Bill, George Saterial (sp?) did win a FISM back in 2000. There is a reference to Peter Gloviczki doing a multiplying zombie routine, but I do not know anything more than that on it except that Peter did lecture and soemone would have his lecture notes somewhere. I think both routines utilize silks for cover.

Yes that is his name Peter Glovicski. Have not heard of him in years. Thanks!

We have a unique shop of decorating products (high Priced) items of put in your house. They had perfect balls of metal, with no seem or hole. They would have been a great switch item for the Zombie ball or to use in an act. When I went back to the shop they moved and the balls were note in the new location. Oh Well!

Ok I have found him, he's now a Heart Surgeon at the Mayo clinic. I will attempt to approach him as I have done already with George Saterial. Thanks for the assistance.

William:
this Peter Glovicski sounds interesting. Do you know anything about his magic? Wouldn't it be great if they sold FISM videos/dvds of previous competitions?

Yes, it is a shame that we cannot have all the stage video of older acts available to study, not copy but study for creative reasons. I cannot believe how some magicians come up with the sleight of hand ideas they do. Wouldn't it be great to have something to get the creative juices flowing constantly. Just think how much farther magic would progress. Instead of constantly starting from scratch every time.

The only thing I remember is that he did do his act at the larger conventions in the 1970's. Then gone for several years, probably doing his doctor thing. Then made a re-appearance for a year. I believe he put out some close up ideas, only one or 2 effects. Again, I am going on memmory, so I believe he put out the 2 card between plastic trick. Hand Moorehouse put out, as well as Ken Brooke Magic Place.

It really is a shame that so much of the current focus in magic is on close-up and slight of hand. That art has really propelled itself and new stuff is being done all the time, while it seems the stage aspect moves at a much much slower pace. It would be great to have some of those old comopetition videos to study.

I once saw a guy at the Florida State conventions doing an act centered around large "steel Balls" about 6 inches in diameter. at the end he would produce two 12 inchers. His handling wasn't particularly impressive, but the balls and sh..ls he used could be really cool in the right hands. He called himself "Sterling Steel" and he lives somewhere in Florida. don't know if he has a website or anything, but you could ask around.

He's from Jacksonville FL

You may wish to look at Peter Loughran's "Black Hole" for manipulating large objects ( depending of course what those objects are...)

I do see that Sterling Steel won second place at the Daytona magic convention in 2004 and 3rd in 2004, but I can not find any contact information. Got any ideas?

LeeAxex, thanks for the info on Black Hole. I had seen that as well and thought it seemed to have some nice possibilities as well.
