I'm gone for a few days .. and no one is picking up the slack??

I just saw a clip online of America's Got Talent and sure enough Shadow Vision is exposed for all to see. Of all the illusions out there .. this is a very complicated one to pull off. A very bad choice for performing it your very first time .. on national TV no less.

David is a nice guy .. but, he was obviously not prepared for this. This is a fine example to go with what it tried and true .. especially in this type of situation.

We all look like a bunch of goofs when this type of thing happens.

If seen guys mess up badly and save themselves really well, but man, that was just horrible.

Cutting Edge Magic...

Very sad when a rarely seen & unique illusion is thrown away on national TV. How many times have I read about how unfair the masked magician has been, and then we have people like this who do the same thing because of their lack of rehearsal and preparation. I am reasonably certain that David Martin does not own the Shadow Vision in question, and that makes it even sadder, that someone placed their trust in him to present the illusion without exposing it.

It's sad to see such a lack of preparation... by the time the reveal happened the illusion had already been horribly performed and exposed....

Sad.... and I love this illusion as well...

What are you guys talking about? 'The trick did not have any backfires whatsoever and what [they] did was throw some curve balls in there to challenge the imagination, but there were no mistakes made. Whatsoever.'

There is some suspicion in my mind as to the exposure or strategic "curve balls" possibly being a AGT spin. Anyone think the same or different?

Personally, I think that when you're not well rehearsed and not ready, you should only perform in your living room! Just as simple as that! He looked stupid. End of the story. No, I mean NO excuse! Before you go on National TV, prepare and be ready as hell! That guy's carreer is over.

David himself had an appearance reminiscent of Criss Angel.

I think if I were the illusionist who performed the effect on the show I would have tried to negotiate a settlement so it wouldn't have aired. Maybe he did try.

Wade says...."The girl in the prop is Criss Angels assistant"


Maybe that is why his (Criss's) show is so heavily edited!!!

At first glance, I thought it was the same chick that worked with Criss. I'm sure Sperry could tell us a bit more .. but, he got banned from the Café again.

Obviously this prop was simply rented while the show was taping in Vegas. I'd be 99% sure it's the very same one sitting on the Magic Auction. There were only a few of this illusion ever built. Sigfried & Roy featured it in there show at the Mirage.

Most viewers won't even remember what happened .. they just know it got messed up.

Besides the obvious from above another thought is this illusion should not be filmed in an uncontrollable filming environment.

another example from someone completely different.

Concerning the assistant:
Her name is Melanie
she worked for Criss Angel for many years (in his live shows and she can been seen levitating in Fremont street and doing his lightning fast sub trunk) she was also a dancer in the worlds greatest magic show in Vegas and has worked with many magicians.
She's a great girl (I went on a date with her a couple of times Smile )and she's a great dancer/'box jumper' but clearly this illusion was not well enough rehearsed!

Ps: Steve, I think the one on magicauction belongs to Lawrence Khong. (so this must be another one...)
