Now THAT looks like it's going to be good... I wonder what type of performance area this can be done at: stage or street?

Other than a poster of Andrew levitating, I see nothing here that gives any clue or idea of what the trick is. I can't tell if it's interresting, or going to be any good. I look forward to seeing a demo once one comes out. Then, at least I'll have a clue what it is before deciding if it's interresting or any good. Smile

I really dislike this form of advertising. I am not trying to bash Mayne. I think he puts out some good material. But the idea of putting out a little at a time...gives me a headache.

Anyways...I look forward to seeing actual info.

There will never be the perfect levitation. I have the Icarus and it's the best I've ever tried so far.

Method is overly exposed IMO, I stopped performing my Icarus years ago. It's a shame as it's such a wonderful illusion.

N-E-Way

Going to be interesting to see Andrew Mayne's spin on the self levi, I have some of his work, his illusions are very well thought out, kinda off the wall but ingenious in his thinking.

I believe that most will be disappointed as most are with levi's.

I have come to realise that most levitations are just pipe dreams...

Maybe I should call up Criss A. and have him tell me how to do it for a live audience, no stoogies...hahaha

That's the thing about levitations. Every year a new method or gimmick is brought out to the market with the hype that it's the best on the market. Years of research, and blah, blah, blah. Smile The next following year, the creator comes out with an improved method(gimmick) due to all the problems customers are having with it. I like most of Andrew Maynes's stuff. I have a few of his ebooks. I don't expect this to be cheesy by any means, but I don't get excited about levitations anymore. Most of them have turned out to be a disapointment. I still use the Balducci method on certain occassions, and have never been busted. I continue to look forward to seeing a demo, cause you just never know. This could turn out to be the next big thing in levitations. I won't give up all hope just yet. Smile

I agree with you Piz. But we have to remind ourselfs that we are not performing to magicians. I performed this many times and no one ever commented on anything about the method etc..

Yep. Pipe dreams. But let's wait and see Mayne's approach. Shrinker was a good effect.

It's not the fact that I feel everyone knows the method to Icarus, it's that folks that I know personally tell me the method, folks who should not be knowing these things.

When I was training the incoming (at the time) GM here at my work, I explained to him I was a magician, the very first thing he asked me was if I can float. I told him sure I can, he then said so can his 10 year old son could float also, and went on to explain the method.

On New-Years eve of 07 I was performing at a party I was doing for some of my fiance's brothers friends. My fiances brother came up to me, in-front of 20 people blabbing out the method to Icarus. I did not perform Icarus that night, I performed FLY, and thank God I did, but him simply knowing the method scares me. If he knows who else knows???

I will be the first to admit I got traumatized by these experiences.

I am sure if I just went out in public and performed Icarus no-one would know how I'm doing it, maybe a smll percentage of people would, but that small percentage knowing the method is more people then I would like to be knowing.

Just my look on

I found Pre-Orders being taken on this for only $17.95 for late Sept release.

Looks to be 5 different levi's on the DVD.

http://www.trickshopmagic.com/dvdlevitator.html


These 2 sound like Angels levi

Levitator – Stand on a chair and float several feet off the floor, to the side and then glide gently to the ground.

UP – A baffling effect where you float up to a chair and back down making the audience wonder if you levitated or slowed down time. Makes a great emcee bit.
