Is anyone else building for Chris at the moment? He had some nice stuff, his empty spaces and shadow theatre are some of the most deceptive looking props I have seen.

Shadow Theatre is a Jim Steinmeyer creation.
It's all in the reflexes.

Can't watch this.

It says it requires Flash 10, but it also says that changes must be made to the security settings before it will work.
Things are more like they are today than they've ever been before...

This illusion still fools me.

Clintonmagus, I think you just need to upgrade Adobe Flash. I'm able to watch it just fine, and I have the latest version installed.

This was after I upgraded Flash. It might be a permissions thing because I was trying to upgrade and view it on my work computer. I can watch it fine at home.

Can someone explain to me what's amazing about this? Not seeing it.

Yes, the illusion is great and the prop looks very deceptive also!

I can't watch it because it's so boring. Dancing, prancing, pointless.

I too did not care for the B level dancing! the illusion although deceptive did nothing for me.

its just jam with the top to the side verses shrinking down. which by the way I think looks more decptive then this thing.

it was ok but did not do anthing for me.

just my opinion

Are we talking about the appearance at the beginning in the tall box? I really didn't find it deceptive. Black sides and black interior? Very suspicious to a viewer.

Lol. They talking about the second illusion. What a big deal about this? Just another box on table illusion with at least 8 inches b***.

The appearing illusion was a joke. They did not turn around the box.

Laszio were not talking about the appearance illusion we are talking about Empty Spaces.
To fully appreciate the illusion you've got to see it up close. I'm not a fan of box tricks but this is very deceptive even standing right next to it in the workshop.

I thought it looked good. Sure it is just another "box on table" illusion, but it's an alternative to all of the other "box on table" illusions. Of course you wouldn't want this in your show if you are doing a Jam, or Origami, or anything similiar to a "tubed out" or "small box on table" type of effect. From the audience perspective I think it looks pretty deceptive.

I agree with the dancing.....I don't understand why magicians think they need big dance numbers before their illusions. It takes away from the performance, and robs the audience of their time. Nobody goes to a magic show to watch dancers, they want to see magic. Cut the dancing and add a few more magic routines to the show, give the audience what they are paying for. Now well choreographed illusions are a must and look great i.e. Joanie Spina, but I don't think the audience wants to see dancing just for the sake of dancing.

In regards to the dancing post Anderson I don't think it's that cut and dry, but I think I get what you mean and I agree let me explain what I think..

I agree with you that to many Magicians have to much fluffing around/dancing before the effect.

But if the dancers are good and the routine is good then it can work great! Think David Copperfield.

It also depends on the Illusionist and also the type of show the Illusionist is performing in Eg: A production show in a Casino where the show producer will want to link the talent (Illusionist) into the show with the Dancers so the show all flows together as one.

I think many people in the audience like to see you make good use of your stage partner if he or she is a good dancer but I agree the Magic is the most important element and should always come first. I hate seeing Illusionist over use their assistants in long winded dance routines as well but it's all about getting the balance right I think.

The Shadow effect someone was talking about is called Evolution and it was invented by Chris Murphy - Oz Illusion with a bit of help by me;)
It is sold by Bill Smith - Magic Ventures and is a brilliant effect!
Check out FISM winners Eun Gyeol Lee from Korea performing it on You Tube with his amazing routine.

John,

I always compare box on the table illusion to the Origami and to me Empty Spaces not even close (bigger box). It doesn't matter you fold the box in two and put tubes in. It just shows nothing is there. While Origami is smaller box and with push trough the swords shows the same (empty). Because there are more and more different kind of box on the table illusion people have bigger chance realize where could the assistant hide. In a way magicians screwing themselves up.

Best,

Las
