If you head over to Sankeymagic.com, there is a news blurb that states that Jay has signed on to develop over 40 new routines for Mindfreak season 3. Hopefully the show will start focusing on close-up magic instead of the bigger illusions that were showcased in the first 2 seasons.

40 new ones? that should take Jay about 40 minutes. And guess what- it'll STILL improve the show!

Are all these new items going to be Penguin or some to be sold via CA himself at his LV shop?

I think Sankey severed his ties with Penguin. He didn't like that they priced his items competitively. He wanted to set the selling price himself. Now if Penguin has any new Sankey stock they buy it from other wholesalers at their prices, not from Sankey.

I haven't heard that the new material will be for sale at all. It may simply be that Sankey has signed on with Angel as a "creative consultant."

Perhaps the show will improve with sankey as a consultant. Hopefully Jay can let Chris know that the spectator cam is complete B.S. and that stooges are for mediocre magi.

As far as I can see, the press release says nothing about releasing the effects, although some of them may be released, ala Sinful and the self levitation DVDs. It will be interesting to see how Jay's input shapes the new series, and the new ideas the team brings to fruition. Looking forward to watching the end results!

Cheers,

Chris

Anyone know which effects shown on MindFreak this season have had the 'Sankey Touch'. I was hoping for more street style magic and have been WAY LET DOWN with the silly smoke and mirrors shown so far. Oh, well Criss Angel has a TV show and an upcoming Vegas show so OBVIOUSLY it's me doing something wrong...

So really, anyone know which effects are Sankeys?!?

I honestly have absolutely no idea, but then again haven't really been paying attention to that aspect of the show.

I didn't know that Sankey knew how to CGI, edit, or hire actors. Hmmmm, maybe he was hired to inspire Chris to return to magic?

Jay's contract for when dealers sell his items is very strict. He would of told them how much they can sell it for. I can't imagine it was the other way round.

I thought that card trick Criss did with the paper clip and safety pin could have came from sankey, not sure though.

Then again I don't care enough to look for new episodes of mindfreak anymore. If it's on when I am channel surfing fine, if not, I am sure House, Seinfeld, Simpsons or an infomercial is on some other channel.

Just for the people who think Criss Angel uses little camera tricks Wayne Houchin himself told me he uses way to much camera editing!
