Hi Friends of Magic Café ,

I just got a Lady Sawing in 1/2 Illusion. Are there any good videos in Youtube to showcase a good presentation to trigger ideas?

Cheers

What type of sawing in 1/2 is it? There are an equal number of good and bad presentations on youtube that you can learn from. There are numerous sawing effects too. If we knew which type (thin model, wakeling, modern art, ect.) we could direct you much easier. Congratulations on your illusion!

Hi Anderson,

This is the prop which I bought. I believe this is wakeling sawing in 1/2.

Try and get the "Magic of Alan Wakeling" book. It is available in soft bound and will give you the designers take on it. Of course, Kalin and Ginger are considered (I believe!) one of the best teams around performing it and they have really made their routine theirs.

You should be able to find a lot of videos with this type of sawing being presented, but most "sawing" videos will give you ideas of what to do and what NOT to do with it.

Best of luck (I'm jealous..it's a great looking prop! Congrats!)

And for other approaches to presentation you might want to search out the Blackstone Sr. video on Youtube. I like the way he hypnotizes her. And Tarbell has some really old-school patter that I think is worth taking a look at.
