"After a hiatus of over a year MagicNews TeleVision is making a welcome return in January 2013.

With new software, new website, better content, great interviews, a comedic take on popular websites and magicians, MagicNews TeleVision will hopefully be "what magic has been waiting for". Unlike other popular websites there will be no 'tricks' to buy.

Just News, Reviews, Interviews, and a whole bunch of other goodies.

We have 'in the can' interviews with, Paul Wilson ( who you will know from his exemplary talents, and deep involvement in 'The Real Hustle, films, DVDs'), the one and only Charlie Caper, ( I knew him before he became such a powerhouse), Morgan & West(you know, those old time 'Vaudevillian' magicians), Charlie Frye (what a beautiful guy), Chipper Lowell (so funny), Ian Kendal (contributor to MUM), JC Sum & Magic Babe Ning (who were so gracious and helpful), as well as a lot more...

Go to http://magicnewstelevision.com/whatsthepoop to find out more and get on board.

We have, at present, in our run up to our MEGA prelaunch, advice and thoughts on what it takes to put a street show together. Advice some may know, but then again...

It's been a long time coming and trust you enjoy the series of articles we have put together.

3. Keep Dribbling Old Magic Posters Onto eBay
Message by Paul Daniels (UK)

Hope all is well with you and the NZ gang.

So... what am I up to? Well, fortunately for me in this time of all the media banging on about recessions and depressions, I am working all the time on lots of different styles of shows. Not only am I performing but I have also been working on special and mysterious effects for a new play called 'Scared to Death' and a musical called 'Jack the Ripper'. The latter is more fun than it sounds.

Debbie and I did a few shows on the Adonia, a cruise ship, and managed to visit Malta, one of our favourite places. Sadly we just missed Vanni Pule who had gone over to the UK for the IBM British Ring Convention.

We flew back from the ship to do a show and a Q and A session at the IBM British Ring Convention.... but Vanni had flown back to Malta by the time we arrived. I emailed him to tell him I thought he was deliberately avoiding us. The IBM audiences seemed to like the nutty stuff I did.

In the midst of all this I have done my best to keep dribbling old magic posters onto eBay where my seller name is, naturally, pauldaniels, but if I am going away on a job I sometimes have to have gaps of a couple of weeks so that I can guarantee delivery.

The response to my one day mini-conventions where 10 magicians at a time have been coming to our home for advice/lessons/demonstrations has been fantastic. I have loved doing these sessions, which you can find on www.pauldaniels.co.uk, because the questions bring out old methods from my memory that are still relevant today. Sometimes we are all guilty of chasing 'the latest' and forget how good this old stuff can be in the right hands. Certainly a couple of weeks ago I baffled a roomful of magicians with a really really old magic trick. When someone pointed out that it was a Triumph effect I pointed out that this was WAY before Vernon and I loved his response...'that is so much easier than what I have been doing'.

Your readers might want to send me questions which I do try to answer on YouTube where I have a channel, whatever that is.

Thanks for keeping this fantastic newsletter going my friend.

Magician David Blaine Unplugs After High-Voltage NYC Stunt
By Jonathan Allen
New York

(Reuters) - David Blaine has safely unplugged.
The thrill-seeking magician came down Monday evening from the 20-foot-high (6-meter) perch on a New York pier where he spent the past 72 hours standing inside an artificial lightning storm generated by seven high-voltage, low-current Tesla coils. The 39-year-old performer said the electrifying performance would be his last endurance stunt.

Blaine spent the final minutes grinning and waving at a crowd of about 150 onlookers and pretending to conduct the thunderously loud renditions of keyboard works by Bach, Liszt and Mozart that provided the musical accompaniment to the stunt..

6. Remarkable Magic #54 - Nick Lewin
Message by Nick Lewin (US)

A performing guide to video Part Two.

Last week I gave some thoughts on promotional videos. They were of course strictly my opinions however they were based on a great deal of experience in the field. Every now and then I get involved in emails and try and give specific advice. I have decided not to do this anymore!

I recently got involved in a correspondence with someone interested in entering the cruise market. His initial video, which was unavailable online, contained two items that were palpably unsuitable to send to anyone booking this kind of work, and I pointed this out. Next he wanted to know whether a video featuring needles and razor blades was suitable. NO.

This leads me to one final statement on videos that are designed to raise work in a specific area. Make sure they are suitable! With a family audience, it is highly unlikely that any booker wants a performer who presents magic that could influence young people and possibly cause them to cause damage to themselves by trying to emulate it. Look at your market, look at your repertoire and use your best instinct. If in doubt have several videos (or one video cut several ways) to cover the various markets you are interested in.

I want to continue last week's column with a word or two about the performer's use of video support, or as it is often referred to I-mag.

It can be a wonderful blessing to have a video camera blow up the action that is taking place on stage, but there are a few points I would like to make.

1 The only point for video support is to supply close-up shots of the action, important props, selected cards, facial expressions etc. If the video is just a long shot then it does very little good. In fact in my opinion it can do harm, as the audience's attention is split between the live action and the screen(s) and you have split the focal point of your audience.

2 The best way to improve the quality of your video assistance is to write a short, clear and simple script for the videographer. Let him know what you are going to do and when the close ups will be most useful.

3 If there is more than one camera involved, find out which one is going to be used for the close-up shots, and play the appropriate action to that camera. Play it just a little slower than you would if there were no cameras present, because he needs time to focus.

4 Try and work from the center of the stage and twist your body from side to side to display the props/action to the live audience. If you keep striding around from one side of the stage you will find the camera misses your actions and it looks bad on screen - which is where most people will be watching.

Both of these last two points can best be summed up by thinking of yourself as performing on a live TV show. You are playing to the camera, which is relaying your actions to the crowd. Concentrate on making eye contact with the live audience and occasionally really blasting the camera with your eye contact.

5 Sometimes this video assist is projected without a copy ever being made. But if it is recorded make sure that you request that they make a dub for you. This could be your next promotional video waiting to happen. Usually, if it is a corporate event, they will keep a copy for their records, though it isn't always easy to get one, but give it a try. It is usually the case that they edit the cameras on the spot for use during the live event. However, you can always request that they run 'iso' on the cameras, and that way you will get footage from all the cameras shooting plus the line edit. Offer to pay for any additional cost.

It is always useful (actually, almost essential) to get some audience reaction shots in order to edit your promo tape later. A few friendly words (and sometimes a $100 bill!) can work wonders in obtaining co-operation. You might just end up with a three thousand dollar video shoot for (almost) free!

I have some really great magical items in my online store and more being released all the time! There is also some great video there that is unavailable anywhere else!

7. Chair Suspension - Two Birthday Children? - #277 - Kyle Peron
Message by Kyle Peron (US)

I have a dilemma that will come up next year when I do my two grandsons, yes they are twins, birthday party. I cannot seem to figure out a way to use (the Chair Suspension Illusion) on both boys w/o repeating the illusion. I'm sure you have run into this before with twins or two kids sharing the same birthday party. Any ideas would be most helpful. I know both will want to have a turn at being levitated. I really don't like the idea of repeating the trick again. Thanks.

Good question and as a twin myself, I understand it clearly. I have a few different ways in which to address it. First, I never like to repeat the trick in the course of the same show. When repeated it kills the flow of the show and the pacing and makes for an awkward situation for you as the performer. However, what I can do is talk to the client and make them aware early on that I will do the following:

I will bring one child up and explain just how magical they are. I explain, that today I am going to make THEM a real magician with all the powers of a young magician's apprentice. That they alone (with my help) will do something simply amazing. They become the magician and they are the ones that make their twin suspend on the chair. I show and explain that both become the star of the show and give equal importance to both roles. It is important that the client and the birthday children know and feel that you are given equal importance to them both without favoritism. Both roles are made to be just as exciting and just as rewarding as the other. They work as a team in order to create a grand finale that works for everyone.

I then state that the show will end as both bow and both get the applause equally. Then after the show is over (and after the kids move on to other things) I will have the birthday twins stay around as another parent or adult takes the other kids into another room for games or food etc. I can then perform it again but just for the parents and the other child for a photo opportunity. By doing this both children get to suspend and do the illusion, but you take the heat off of you by not repeating it in the show itself.

When handled in this fashion, it usually works ideal. I hope if you ever run into this situation that these helpful tips will be of service to you.

As always, I encourage you the readers to let me know your thoughts. So if you have any thoughts on my articles or suggestions or comments, please feel free to e-mail me directly at magic4u02@aol.com. I would love to hear from you.

8. In Conversation with Pat Fallon - #5
Message by Anthony Darkstone Brook - Europe/USA


AD: many of today's current performers can credit you and ABC Magic with
their start.

PF: Well. yes Tony, that is indeed so .many of the current Irish close up magicians gained their first experience working on an ABC Magic event.

AD: You yourself have done quite a few corporate gigs and TV .

PF: Yes, I have been blessed. Throughout my career I have close to one hundred television appearances, numerous radio interviews and performances under my belt. Not all of them were things to be proud of particularly a daytime chat show which was dealing with the subject of S&M antics in the bedroom where I had to open the lock on a chastity belt without a key. The things we do for money.

AD: Hmmm! Actually , I kinda like the sound of that kind of Magic on TV .. very Avant Garde..makes picking locks much more visually interesting .. Maybe we should get together pool our skills and resources and create a new style of Magic. but where to find 5 Virgins in Chastity belts???

PF: An exciting thought ..I start the research first thing tomorrow. So I'm joint Executive Producer on this with all the perks that go with that .

AD: He! He! Absolutely let's make some new history.. and speaking of history, one of the shows made "history "on Irish National TV did it not?

PF: Yes that was very rewarding. The programme Christmas Showtime with pop sensation Boyzone, featured a performance of mine which was then chosen by RTE as one of the highlights of the past 50 years of Irish television. To be perfectly honest Tony, I did not think it was a great programme, but it was of its day and probably because it was the bands first major TV event it crept into that category. But who am I to question their decision.

AD: Well. you know what we experienced Pros say- "don't question .take the applause, pick up the check and go home!!! He! He! Anyway, you continue not just as a Performer but also as a Consultant .

PF: Thank you and yes Tony, I have worked as an Advisor and Consultant for TV programmes, commercials, product launches, theatre productions and a number of major movies including 'The Playboys', 'Mad about Mamba' and 'Breakfast on Pluto'.

AD: But you still perform right?

PF: Yes absolutely, you know how that is . it is in our DNA that applause factor. I continue to tour my full evening show with my new assistants Gill and Ana, I perform close-up magic in restaurants and Shopping Centers and together with fellow magician Stephen Thompson I present creative team building events.

10. 16th Annual Motor City Close-Up Convention
Message by John Luka (US)

This year the Motor City Convention will take place the weekend of November 16-18, 2012. The Motor City Convention will feature Darwin Ortiz, Garrett Thomas, Mark Zacharia, and Kainoa Harbottle. As usual, you will have an opportunity to meet and mingle with these performers, ask questions, and share some of your ideas with them. You can also register quickly and easily on line via PayPal.

You will enjoy the new spacious facility, The DoubleTree by Hilton Dearborn / Detroit located at 5801 Southfield Expressway, Detroit, MI 4822, Phone:
(313) 336-3340. Website: www.dearborn.doubletree.com/

Darwin Ortiz has not previously appeared in this area. For most of you, this is a wonderful opportunity to see Darwin perform live and to have a chance to meet him.

Darwin makes his living with a deck of cards. He has performed all over the world. Darwin has been a featured performer at magician's conventions in the U.S., England, Portugal, Argentina, and Japan and has lectured on sleight-of-hand before countless magician groups in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, England, and Scotland.

Darwin is a sleight-of-hand artist, Magician, Entertainer, Media Personality, Casino Consultant, Author, and Gambler. Darwin Ortiz is truly unique: an artist, and expert, and an unforgettable entertainment experience.

Garrett Thomas is a close-up magician based out of Western New York who performs at public and private events across the United States. As a magician, Garrett is known for being an innovator as well as one of the top card, coin, and ring manipulators. His original effects, extreme technical skills, and keen understanding of human psychology culminate in highly visual, entertaining, and often enlightening routines.

Garrett's commitment to the art of magic manifests not only in his performances, but also in his strong commitment to teaching the science and psychology of magic to other magicians. Garrett has produced several instructional books and videos on the subjects of coin, card, and ring manipulation, creating magical moments, and on the secret to becoming a "real" magician.

Mark Zacharia is a close-up magician based out of the New Jersey area. Mark is a featured performer at many New York / New Jersey area restaurants. Mark is also known as being a magician's magician. Mark has earned a coveted invitation to Fechter's Finger Flicking Frolic, the original close-up convention.

Mark presents strong, audience tested material that he has worked well in the real world. The focus is on effects that play well in the restaurant and the material is geared toward the average guy. Marks lecture is sprinkled with tips and insights on performing magic which many say are as important as the material Mark delivers.

Kainoa Harbottle was born and raised in Honolulu, HI. Kainoa got his start in magic with a small comedy and magic group. By high school Kainoa was working alongside some of O'ahu's top magicians. He worked at Curtis Kam's showroom in Waikiki as well as in restaurants and for private shows in both the business sector and the tourist industry.

Pursuing a career in higher education Kainoa became an expert in the publication and performance history of Victorian magic. Kainoa performs in and around his adopted state of Delaware. Kainowa is an expert in coin manipulation and has contributed much to the subject in his published literature.

I am looking forward to seeing you at this year's event.

Motor City Close-Up Convention

11. Great Yarmouth
Message by Geoffrey Newton PRO

Great Year
The IBM British Ring convention in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, UK, held from 26th - 30th September 2012 was a very successful few days of Magic with approaching 500 attending this get together amid the English sunshine. Whilst some may have had reservations about it not being an all under one roof convention the novelty of free transport on the "Dotto" trains running regularly along the promenade more than made up for it although, the distances were not excessive anyway. Many reported enjoying the short seafront walk in such lovely improved surroundings as very refreshing without using the trains, so everyone was happy.

There have been a few changes from previous years which, all in all seemed to have been welcomed. For instance the registration area, dealers' hall, dealers' demonstration theatre and refreshment facilities being very much in one area has been favourably commented on by many, so for starters it's probably one to consider keeping for the future.

The lectures and workshops were all well attended and received and the competitions had interesting acts with a number of awards being presented. Winner of the Close-up was Vadim with in 2nd place Fay Presto and 3rd Will Gray. The Rovi Trophy for skill with playing cards went to Alex Hansford. In the stage competition the Theo Speaker Cup and £500 went to Sean Alexander - The Confusionist. The Dittia Shield for manipulation went to Dave Andrews together with £250. The Craig Trophy for best dealers' display went to Astra Magic. A special award this year went to Steve Evans in the form of "Compere of the Year Trophy". Fay Presto also won the Micro Marathon Competition.

The tribute to the Van Buren Family was both a very interesting nostalgic through to current life presentation featuring video clips and live illusion performance narrating the story about this greatly loved magical family.

The convention Gala Dinner was one of the best I have attended with short and witty speeches by President Brian Miller, International President John Pye and the Worshipful Mayor of Great Yarmouth Councillor Colleen Walker. The Masonic Centre is a lovely venue, the meal excellent and served with the most professional and courteous staff. Nothing was too much trouble and it was a treat to be there. I was delighted to see amongst the diners the Immediate Past President Vanni Pulé and his lady MaryAnne and The Rt.Hon. Lord McGregor of Pulham Market PC OBE supporting us.

Our open performances on Saturday, Sooty's Magic Show and the Gala Show proved to be excellent ambassadors of magic not just in our own eyes but in those of the public too. Both attracted good attendances.

On the Sunday after the service, lecture, stars of the future and the Paul Daniels Q & A session John 'Sly' Smith od Cheadle Hulme in Cheshire was installed as the President and looks forward to meeting many members during the next year.

The organisers should be congratulated in bringing to the south east coast a well thought out convention which seems to have been enjoyed by one and all.

The 2013 convention will be held in Buxton (Derbyshire) from the 4th to 8th September, the headquarters hotel is the Palace and it's nearly all of it is under one roof. There were 50 registrations for this taken at Great Yarmouth. Further details will be released as information becomes available. (photo: the Opera House where some events will be held. Most of the others will take place in the Pavilion Gardens immediately behind.

12. Working A Different Pitch
Message by James James

As a busking magician of over 10 years I've had my fair share of mishaps, downtimes, and incredibly awesome experiences. From having a whole audience walk on me, to having over 400 people all chanting my name.

The streets are a fickle mistress, if you let it. If you don't grow that thick skin.

One of the main reasons for doing the streets is the income that I generate from it, after committing myself to it over 10 years ago during an Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where I was inspired by Nick Nickolas.

After being taught by the man himself, Gazzo, I took to the streets in earnest, traveling extensively and internationally.

But this isn't about me and what I have done.


It's more of an insight into how different things can be when working in a completely differing culture, to what we experience in western countries.

As I type this I am busking, courtesy of Genting Highlands Malaysia, performing shows in the complex for six days a week.

What makes it so different here, is that, although English is spoken and some of the comedy elements are changed, there is still a reservedness in most audiences that can frustrate a hard core streetie.

The people here are polite, kind, sometimes generous, albeit a bit standoffish.

In getting the 'money' as well, there is another big frustration. The economy here, wages, salaries, and so on, are commensurate with the cost of living here. That is to say, some of the tips are 1 ringit, which is the smallest currency. That equates to 30 Australian cents.

As you can imagine, when one is used to $10 drops and more, and bigger hats, one can get a wee bit 'bitter'.

There is only one thing for it.

Do more shows.

The choices we make sometimes lead to paths we think better of but then in that bitterness and frustration, comes that one show which lifts you up, puts a smile on your face, and money in ones hat.

Also there are other bonuses..being able to have time to work on new material, work on other projects, and get a bit fitter.

Malaysia is a beautiful county, its people as said, are kind and giving, but when it comes to busking it is a whole new experience for them. That's why I reckon it's a harder life for a busker here.

I'm sure the same applies to stage, cabaret, or standup style of performance. Any performer worth that title, will have to adapt, adjust, and alter accordingly, what they do, to fit with a different culture...

Just a thought.

James James.

Message by Mike Heidtman
Event Coordinator, MATB2013

Magic at the Beach is pleased to announce the addition of two incredible acts to our already awesome lineup.

Unexpectedly magician Dana Daniels has had to step back from our line-up, but we will continue to add some of the World's Greatest Magicians to make Magic at the Beach an unforgettable event!

For our first addition we welcome Andrew Goldenhersh.

Andrew Goldenhersh ranks among today's elite masters of magic, drawing thunderous acclaim around the globe. His skill and style have mesmerized audiences from Hollywood to the Far East, and all points in between. A perennial honoree at the legendary Magic Castle, Andrew has received accolades from the prestigious Academy of Magical Arts. Having been voted the Academy's "Parlour Magician of the Year" in 2009 & 2010, Andrew is the only magician to have been nominated for both Close-up Magician of the Year and Parlour Magician of the Year for twelve years in a row.

Andrew is held in high esteem by his peers in entertainment, including Las Vegas superstar Lance Burton (who calls him a "genius") and the world renowned David Copperfield (who licensed and performs one of Andrew's signature routines). The celebrity list of whom Andrew has entertained includes Johnny Depp, Ringo Starr, Pink, Sheryl Crow, Rod Stewart, Dustin Hoffman, Nicolas Cage, Jason Alexander, Demi Moore, Teri Hatcher, Tony Shalhoub, Steve Carrell, Jane Fonda, Robin Leach, Michael Ovitz and many more. You too can join the list by registering for Magic at the Beach 2013.

Our second act to be added is Michael Trixx, America's favorite Rock N' Roll
Magician. With a background in music Trixx combines his two passions, Rock N' Roll and Magic to give an unforgettable performance. With live doves and parakeets appearing and vanishing from thin air, levitations, confetti blizzards, fire magic and more all make for a rockin' good time.

Trixx has been seen on NBC's America's Got Talent and at clubs all over the States and London and is the 2009 Florida State Magic Convention's Stage Show Contest Champion. In addition, Trixx holds two First Place Stage Magic Awards from Magic at the Beach. Be sure to catch The Rockin' Magic Of Michael Trixx, in the "Champions of Magic" Gala Show.
