If anyone is interested in a Divx video of Peki performing his act , just send me a pm and I e-mail you the video.

The video has a size of 30 mb so it'll be better if you've got a fast internet connection like DSL.

Take Care,
Philipp

Hmm... I would love to see it but I don't think my email can handle 30MB attachments. I think the largest is 10MB. Any other way to get the vid?

Sorry ,
don't have my own site.
I could send it by regular mail if you'd like but I think that wouldn't make much sense , cause it is just a short performance of the act.

So back to my original quetion.. is there another way you could send it? Regardless of it's length, you mentioned it was 30 MB so that would preclude being sent via email to most users since most have a 10MB limit. Can you possibly send it through IM or something. I can then host it on a site and provide a link for people to get it for a while.

Another source for information on manipulating larger objects is not just billard balls. You can also get some information on manipulating largher or really jumbo size playing cards.

Two sources for this is 1) from Mahka Tendo who does jumbo card manips as well as there is a teaching session on a video called the Stage magic of Hungary. One magician on the tape shows you fans. vabishes and some moves with very large format cards.

Keep in mind that when trying to manipulate large objects, take away what the object is and really focus on it's shape. Then you can start to think of what moves can I use that I already know of that can be used to control this unique shape. We tend to get hung up too often on what the object is that we often overlook the obvious solutions.

Another way to manipulate larger objects is through the use of an object that can be compacted and then when produced can grow or change shape to appear larger then it really is when concealed on the body or table steal.

For example, parasols as well as umbrellas can fit this category of large object manipulation. A parasol or umbrella folds down very small and really turns into a long and narrow shape. This shape is ideal for concealment in a flip stick style fashion and can be produced to great effect.

Hope this helps and starts your creativity flowing.

You might want to look in the "Canival of Fun" topic which discusses juggling and maybe the "The deceptive side of magic" topic which deals with Black Art.

Instand Messanger.. such as MSN, AIM, ICQ, YAHOO.. got any of those?



MAGIC4u02 - The objects I am interested in manipulating would be balls about the same size as Zombie balls. So round would be the shape.

Ok I understand. May I ask you what your character is on stage and what is your style and reason for manipulating these large objects? Tell me a bit more about your act and routine ideas and I might be able to offer some more ideas.

The routine will be "alien" themed, the manipulation will be planets.

The planets should definately float at some point...
Maybe have several different planets and make a solar system float around your body...

Ok guys,
bad news :

Unfortunately I had to realize today that I'm not able to send a file via e-mail that's bigger than 12 mb.

Any ideas on what to do now ?

Right, that's what I'm saying. In order to do it, you will either have to upload it to somewhere on the net, or get an Instant Messenger like AOL or MSN (they are free) then you can just send it to someone directly.

You are correct! His name is Dr. Peter Gloviczki. The great Doctor worked very very closely with the great Jay Marshall - check this out:

Famed Hungarian maniplator/magician, now Heart Surgeon at the Mayo
Clinic, Rochester, Minn., performed a successful open heart procedure

are doing fine. Oh, Dr. name? Peter Gloviczki. Great guy, great act and
a great Dr. Adios!"
