I know a number of you have experience with Kevin Jame's Snow Animator and I was hoping you could advise me as to performance limitations. I've always seen this performed as a stage routine but could this be done in a smaller venue? Is it possible to perform outdoors understanding that wind can be an issue? Is there a difference in performance between Snow Animator 2 vs. 3?

Any input you have is apprecited.

Thanks,
Dan.

Hi Dan,
I have used and own all of these, so I might be able to help you out. With the SA 1 & 2 they are basically the same except for the power of the b****r and the look. You will get more lift with the SA 2 than with 1 and it is a bit quieter. You have the same limitations as far as where the audience view the seats, it is best to have them a little lower than the top of the seat. With the SA 3, you don't have that problem and the b****r is much stronger and quieter, but it looks like a box. If you can work that look into your routine and it fits your style then it is great. You can use any of them in smaller venues you just need to be aware of your limitaions due to distance from the audience, height of the audience, and the level of your music needs to be at a certain level to be able to disguise any noise issue. Over all they are all great products, but you need to choose the one that will best fit your performance style and venues. If I were you I would contact Kevin in Vegas, he is very nice and generous with his knowledge. He is away in Greece until the end of April, but I would send him an email and he will get back to you. info@kjmagic.com

That sounds great. I appreciate your experience and insights. I am in no rush as I am developing a whole new concept for a show. I definitely want to build as much practice and "get it right" time before rolling out the concept. I saw Kevin perform this in LV during the WMS and I agree with the poetry and overall sensation this effect creates. I believe Kevin's unit was built directly into the stage. I am anxious to see what SA4 entails.

Thank you very much!
Dan.

Hi Lee Alex,

Yes, it's me (Rafael)
You are correct that Kevin is working on this for quite some time...
If all goes well, Kevin will be releasing some other cool stuff at Fism - can't wait !

Rafael!

Your post made me chuckle - I wasn't actually asking if it was you, but I was asking if the project was secret! I guess I should have placed a comma after your name!

On a personal note did you make it to Master Class in Amsterdam this year?

I wonder what else Kevin has up his sleeve for FISM? Sounds extremely exciting!
Yours Magically,
Lee Alex

Does anyone use this outdoors?

I have used it outdoors but the obvious problem is wind. If it blows during your performance it can make your performance do the same...lol. But I have used all of the methods inside and out, you just need to be aware of the gusts.

Kozak uses an SA 2 (I think) in the performances shown on his new DVD. He starts the snow using other means and then uses the SA to push it to a crescendo.

I have the SA1. I am satisfied with this, litlle noisy, but who care, as long as we do it on stage. The size is big, I think will be better if that can be made in knock down.
What is SA4, this make me curious....should be very good ha? How much is it?? ;o)

SA 4 is built into a napkin holder and is very deceptive. Cool stuff!

I'm not sure if MDS is kidding or not about the SA 4 in a napkin holder... But I think it would be cool, if the SA could be worn on the body.

I was going to comment on what I feel a limitation of doing a snow routine in general is....but decided to start a new thread as it is a bit off topic...
