Does anyone know where to get information about Amos Levkovitch, a magician that is supposed to do a wonderful Dove Act with a very unusual finish? I would very much appreciate information about his teaching video "Dove Tails." Also, I would like to know his e-mail address and when and where he will be performing next. Smile

I'm in the embarrassing position of having to answer my own question. After my previous post I did a little research and found Amos Levkovitch's web page: http://www.amosmagic.com

His instructional Dove video "Just Do It" has his act on it. The cost is $45.00 plus $5.00 for shipping and handling. His other video "Dove Tails", at the same price as his other video, is about dove care, feeding, training, housing and traveling with doves.

Both of the above videos can be bought together for $90.00 plus $5.00 for S&H.

Amos also sells a complete kit including a set of Christian Dior tails tailored to your measurements with all the trimmings, i.e. dove bags, silks, pockets sewn into the tux, gimmicks and the two videos plus more for: $895.00.
Channing Pollack is my idea of the perfect magician. For those of you that have not seen him perform, I recommend trying to get hold of a video of an old movie called "European Nights" made about 1959.
I was able to buy this video from Stevens Magic

Dear Magic Mike

Amos's two videos are very good!! His dove care is the best I have seen!

If you can get also the FULL package of lecture notes & two sets of videos from Peter White from P&A Silks... they are very expensive... cost up to USD $200.00... an excellent video & covers many in-depth details.

Look out for Dan Birch's video coming out soon... make sure to grab one as well...!

Warmest Regards

Hello Dove-boy,
Thanks for the information. I do have both Amos's and Peter's DOVE VIDEOS. I am looking forward to getting Dan Birch's Dove video when it comes out. Dan does a great bird act which you can view at his website: http://www.danbirch.com

Please let me know when you hear that Dan's video is for sale and where it can be bought.

Best regards,

Mike

Hi Mike

Below are the details... you might be interested... I already ordered a set... be sure to reserve a copy in advance... Dan is a great friend & doveworker!
________________________________________

Dan Birch Tails All-

A comprehensive course for making a living performing Dove Magic.

Tape opens with DB doing dove magic. Dan begins talking, as performance continues.

“Hi, I’m Dan Birch, tonight I’m going to give you a comprehensive lesson of dove magic."

Magicians Appearance/costuming:

Psychological impact on audience of trimness of performer.

How to look trim while “loaded”.

Character of Performer. How to create it. Creating a “niche”.

Pockets, sizes and strapping.

Proper direction of grain of fabric.

The Main Concept of a dove act.

Critical ideas about routining (proper beginning, middle, and ending of routine).

Terry Bryant’s concept of greeting the guests, inviting them in, feeding them dinner, giving them desert, thanking them and giving them the “farewell” as they leave.

Conviction & Assurance.

The TRAVELING magician— how to travel light (almost a contradiction in words).

Cases used.

The ASSISTANT.

Assistant’s costume & character.

Stealing Doves.

Peeking.

How many spare doves should you have?

The proper sex of your doves.

Outdoor dove cages, type of food mixture I use, and how it changes when birds are working harder.

Travel dove cages.

Performance dove cage.

Length of contract should play a part on type of cage to be used.

How to get an international travel importers permit from the USDA, and necessary requirements for international travel with doves.

A basic routine will be taught using methods described above. Included with the instructional video tape will be a CD disc with music for a “starter act”.

2 invisible Dove Harnesses, 2 pockets, 2 balloons, 2 sheets of flash paper and a red silk included.

Each videotape will include the licensee’s name (and copyright infringement warning) appearing occasionally and in stragegic places through-out. This is to protect us and each customer who invests in the tape. This will make it possible to trace any illegal copies origin. If original owner wishes to sell his original copy, written permission must first be given from Dan Birch Enterprises so the tape can be re-regestered to new user.

The cost of this Video seminar (and rights) will be... (still undetermined, but it won’t be priced for the curious).

Hope this helps!

Hi Mike

Please also check out Norlin Crawlen (prize-winner for Fism) he has a fantastic two sets of (home-made) dove videos which cost around USD $70.00... they cover many in-depth details... some not found in other dove tapes... by the way he is known for producing a dove from his mouth... wow! Smile

Kenrick 'Ice' Mcdonald also has 2 sets of dove videos... namely I Love You Truly 1 & 2... esp. love his loop connects gimmick... holds a wire/line loop in place... better than velcro, magnet, tapes, etc.

Check them out as well... hope the info helps.

Warmest regards

Hi Dove-boy,
Again, thank you for the great information you provided concerning Dan's videos. I am guessing that his dove videos can be ordered through his website: http://www.danbirch.com — if this is not the case please direct me to the proper address so I can place an order for tapes.

Also, since you are a good friend of Dan's, please commend him on his great, original and very creative Dove Act.

BTW, do you happen to have Gen. Grant's 2-video set on dove work called "How To Make A Living Stealing... Doves Of Course"? This is another excellent dove video which includes his act. I do not have his most recent e-mail address or website.

Where can I order Norlin Crawlin's dove videos?

Ciao,

Mike

Hi Mike

Sorry for the late reply... rather busy on weekend...

You can order direct from Norlin Crawlin himself... his advertisment is in the linking ring mag somewhere in 2000... July... etc... or make a search... the title is called: This is NOT Your Father's Dove Video... it comes in two sets... P/S: This is a home made quality video... not broadcast standard... but is pretty good... Norlin is kind enough to autograph & throw in a few wires as well!

BTW, you can reach General Grant at GGMagic@aol.com .

If you can get hold of his video or his 3 books... remember to ask for his autograph!

P/S: General Grant will be attending the Martini Magic shop convention in May... watch for his beautiful dove & silk act!

Cheers!
dove-boy
