Re: Digital May Issue of Genii Now Live Online

On Giobbi's theorizing about theory... I thought it was an incredibly insightful article - and even better than that, it was practical in showing how to incarnate theoretical words on a page into something that makes for strong magic . I've always been a theory geek even though they say that nothin...

Re: Seeking advice on card wallets suitable for credit cards

You'll have to ask Tony actually, as I'm not sure if it even has a name yet. What I got from him was a prototype that he's been testing for some time now. It's still not in production large scale as far as I'm aware. It's a very normal looking bi-fold wallet with nothing to make it look 'proppy' - j...

Re: Seeking advice on card wallets suitable for credit cards

To follow up for the benefit of anyone who was following this thread, I ended up going for Richard's tip: a hip wallet made by Tony Miller. I used it to great effect for the three-day trade show I bought it for. The wallet was no-nonsense construction, beautiful quality, realistic and looks totally ...

Seeking advice on card wallets suitable for credit cards

Hello! I'm interested in presenting a credit card to wallet routine and am wondering if anyone has experience doing this and can advise on wallets I can buy that are technically suitable to take a credit card load instead of a playing card? Thanks in advance for any suggestions! http://www.christoph...

Re: A question for trade show workers

Wow hot topic. I've never used a microphone as I prefer a more personable approach. In my opinion, an audience just knowing about the brand doesn't rake in the revenue (check out "9 Lies that are Holding your business Back" by Chandler and Beckford to substantiate my claim if you need conv...

Re: Marketing Yourself

I agree with a comment above that if you want to get good at marketing don't just ask magicians who talk about it, but look at the experts across a wider range of expertise. You'll get much more original ideas if you look further afield. One book that really gave me a lot was "9 Lies that are h...

Re: Question for the sub-trunk.

The easiest to build would probably be a version that won't need to stand up to audience examination. But you need to also consider if this will be done with audience only in the front or if the performance will have audience on the sides / surrounded. That will also hold weight with the decision of...

Re: Dancing Hank

I used the Don Wayne apparatus some time ago for a number of performances. Building on the above comments about whether staging will always be on hand to support more complex systems, the strengths of the Don Wayne version are that the set-up is minimal, it is performable in a wide variety of light ...

Re: Gene Anderson Torn and Restored

I agree that in this case knowing in advance doesn't diminish the power of the effect. I've been bewildered actually through the years how much lay audiences talk about this piece. Even if they know what will happen, the interest leading up to the point of restoration all depends on what you draw th...

Re: Sub Trunk Size

It's quite an old post so not sure if my comments are still of use, but I'm almost 6'3 and my sub trunk is about 28" tall with a top load. I'm quite slim and with this size there is room to move around as necessary and still be able to get out. Really you'd do best to try it out live before you...
