About Illusion EFX
I got my start as a professional magician as an illusionist. First in talent competitions, then a circus and finally cruise ships and resorts. I was always looking for something new and different to add to my act - however I was constantly faced with the challenge of not enough time or money to do everything I wanted. That's when I started thinking about practical solutions that could be put together quickly and inexpensively.
My first books (Solo-X and Illusion F/X) dealt with these problems. Later on I published the Illusion Impact series (Voodoo Box, Specter Cabinet, etc.) and presented more easy-to-build solutions.
Yet people kept asking me to do a video so they could see ideas in action. This is finally it...
Illusion EFX features seven illusions involving everything from mini motorcycles to audience members. All are easy to build requiring no power tools and not much money.
Whether you're a Las Vegas illusionist looking for something new to add to your act or a high school student looking for something to do in the talent show, Illusion EFX has something you can use.
In Illusion EFX I'll show you everything from a flash mini motorcycle production to a method for walking through a brick wall that'll only cost you $5. I also show you how to build a Shadow Box illusion for under $50 that folds down totally flat and assembles in seconds.
In the DVD I show you the effect, explain the theory behind the effect, teach you how to make it and then how to perform it. I also show 3D renderings of how illusions are set up on stage so you'll understand all the behind the scenes details.
I didn't have it back then, but it's here now...
Running Time Approximately: 65mins

"...there are a couple of things here which I think are practical and ultimately worth the reasonable price of the DVD."
