Please, Pete, I hope that you're not implying that there is any similarity between contrived CA tv hoaxes and the Magellan levitations.

This is completely different. It's a one-man, low-tech, design heavy, workable, real world solution for an unreal effect.

Okay, we both use trained assistants, but I'm not claiming that mine wasn't...

Maybe I'm missing something, but if the video is of the actual illusion, then I'm disappointed. My idea of a levitation is "walk in and levitate" (ignoring, of course, the obligatory dancing). Something on the order of the John Gabriel Double Levitation on the World's Greatest Magic, for example.

I realize we're talking orders of magnitude, price- and preparation-wise, but to me anything that involves this much preparatory activity and "business" defeats the purpose of illusion in general. Maybe once it is rehearsed and re-videoed it will better represent what it is supposed to be.
Things are more like they are today than they've ever been before...

What's that all about? I'm confused.
Corporate presentations are always different. Many Hotel Grand Ballrooms have little to utilize in the way of lighting. That's the biggest problem with Corporate as I see it. Sound, costumes and the rest are much easier to deal with. If you are at a venue such as The House of Blues or The Hard Rock ... then lighting is much better.
Flying stuff in Ballrooms sucks!

Thanks to Jeff McBride for being our first customer of the standard Magellan Witch Levitation, as seen on the video listed in the topic above.

His insight and commitment to the art of magic are unparalleled, and his gracious support is truly appreciated by all involved with this project. His innovative spirit makes him the pioneer in simple, beautiful COMMANDO-style magic. This transaction exemplifies a perfect union of performer and concept.

Jimmy,

If you can record a better demo, you will sell more units.

Same here. This person who posted this topic told me not to buy this prop. Told me to shut up and stop fishing.

If you'd like a better video, just send me the prop and I'll get one of the Rockette's from the Macy's Parade and shoot one here in Orlando Smile
The Candy Cane girls look nice too, but they are already 10 feet tall Smile

FUNNY, I got an email stating I gave away the secret by stating my viewpoint and I caused them grief and this trick fools magicians and I ruined it for them....

So this raises the question::::::::::::::: HOW many were fooled by the video?
