Here's my visual method for a plot that was originated, or at least popularized, by Paul Harris. I'd love to hear what you think!

I liked the effect a lot. Well executed.

The premise, however, didn't work for me. Too strained.

Persona: Maybe think about the wink behind the performer? The mask needs to slip a little, in my opinion.

The mask? Unsure of what you mean! I don't really have a "persona" when I perform. My training as an actor was a big key for that. About being present, grounded, vulnerable, and real instead of trying to 'perform'. Granted, on video I'm facing the challenge of not having a 'scene partner'. The camera is unmoving and unchanging. So if that affected my general attitude and presence, that's something for me to consider (but not too deeply, as my job isn't to perform for YouTube!)

I feel you about the premise... I'm still experimenting with ways of tying my magic to the human condition, and to making it idenfitiable on a gut level... So this kind of feedback is very valuable to me. I'll keep playing.

Well I enjoyed it, well done.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.
