Not Obscura related but it is sorta magic related.
H.P. Mendoza's new Indie Movie Musical Hit "Fruitfly" has just hit iTunes and DVD!!!! Get it today! And...you might see a little magician do some acting and singing too. I play Gaz Howard, a slimy magician with a one man show! Yeah, yeah, I know, I know, "But how's that a stretch, Christian?" Ha, ha, very funny. More info here! http://hpmendoza.com/2010/archives/119

Here's a clip of the open sequence of Obscura: A Magic Show (the live component of Obscura the webseries)

Obscura is a teeny, tiny magic show played LIVE on a big screen!
Hope you enjoy!

Hey All,

So, Obscura: A Magic Show has come to the end of it's run. I'll be lying low a bit for about a year. I will be doing a handful of one off performances around the Bay and in the San Francisco underground over the next 12 months. I will also be working on our documentary performance film of my show Now and at the Hour which will hopefully start doing a tour of film festivals starting early next year (cross your fingers for us.)

The past year has been a very rough one for our family and me as we dealt with my mother's losing battle to cancer. She past away in my arms a month ago, took her last breaths as I said good bye. This would probably explain why Obscura: A Magic Show was so full of stories of death and such (working out some issues I believe...)

With that, I'd love to share with you footage from the very end of the very last performance of Obscura. Some folks thought it was a dark ending....I thought it was rather lovely...and if one is paying attention: hopeful.

So here is Robert Neale's.........
