said; "I think that Steve Brooks is doing something with Tenyo products, but I am not sure what it is....Does this have anything to do with his plans for a big announcement that he dropped some time ago?
Dropped some time ago? Nope. Over a year ago Jason Palter, Peter Loughran
and myself formed JPS MAGIC STUDIOS LTD
which is located in Canada.
We then set out with our Tenyo Elite
project. Months were spent advertising the SECRET PROJECT
or as opie said "big announcement" in which each month a jigsaw puzzle piece was revealed both in MAGIC magazine and on the JPS MAGIC STUDIOS LTD
website. Earlier this month the final piece of the puzzle was revealed and magicians everywhere now knew about Tenyo Elite
So no opie, nothing was dropped.
My partners and I are extremely excited about this project, we grew up with Tenyo effects and like most people always wanted to see them constructed out of something other than plastic.
Well, in conjuction with Tenyo of Japan that is what we are doing - taking a great product and making it a bit more sturdy. ;)
Finally, contrary to any possible gossip or rumors, though Tenyo has granted us the exclusive worldwide license to manufacture and sell the new line - they are not financially involved - the burden for making this happen rests with ourselves. :)
I hope this sets the record straight and I look forward to seeing many of you at the 2009 World Magic Seminar
in Las Vegas come March 1st. Look for our Tenyo Elite
booth where we will be showcasing the first four effects of the new line.
