I was WRONG (again)! On the internet you have the ability to watch a magic effect over and over. That is a NO NO.
I apologize, Max Maven. And to many other magicians and internet magic dealers I may have offended. Secrets are Important. Especially when SELLING a magic effect. We live in a dollar and cents world. We desire prosperity. We require shelter, food, and good health.
We listen to those individuals who promise prosperity. We are not always cautious. We forget about instability. We can make mistakes and sometimes be correct.

My brother had a part in Woody Allen's worst movie. He said Jackie Cooper tells great stories.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Introducing: Matthew Vaughn https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_Vaughn

Personal Quotes (6)
People look at me like I'm a first-time director. It drives me insane. I've produced six movies.
Luck is a huge factor in my career. Most people are given opportunities. Lucky people recognize them and take them.
Prep properly and you make a great movie.
Making the movie was the time of my life. It's like I was drinking out of a box wine, and here's a 1988 Latour with a great piece of steak and foie gras and cheese -- pure delight and amazement.
If you give the audience what they expect, they'll be bored. There are no rules: You do what you want while respecting the boundaries. You don't poke people in the eye; you do things they haven't seen before and make it accessible, funny and clever.
If you've got the money, you can do anything on film these days. Nothing is impossible, which becomes boring to me. I used CG as a prop to the story, not the other way around.

Intoducing: Henry Slade: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Slade

Introducing: Daniel Dunglas Home: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Dunglas_Home

Henry Slade and Daniel Dunglas Home performed similar accordion routines.

Slade's first seance in England was given on July 15, 1876, to Mr. Charles Blackburn, a prominent Spiritualist, and Mr. W. H. Harrison, editor of THE SPIRITUALIST. In strong sunlight the medium and the two sitters occupied three sides of an ordinary table about four feet square. A vacant chair was placed at the fourth side. Slade put a tiny piece of pencil, about the size of a grain of wheat, upon a slate, and held the slate by one corner with one hand under the table flat against the leaf. Writing was heard on the slate, and on examination a short message was found to have been written. While this was taking place the four hands of the sitters and Slade's disengaged hands were clasped in the centre of the table. Mr. Blackburn's chair was moved four or five inches while he was sitting upon it, and no one but himself was touching it. The unoccupied chair at the fourth side of the table once jumped in the air, striking its seat against the under edge of the table. Twice a life-like hand passed in front of Mr. Blackburn while both Slade's hands were under observation. The medium held an accordion under the table, and while his other hand was in clear view on the table "Hone, Sweet Home" was played. Mr. Blackburn then held the accordion in the same way, when the instrument was drawn out strongly and one note sounded. While this occurred Slade's hands were on the table. Finally, the three present raised their hands a foot above the table, and it rose until it touched their hands. At another sitting on the same day a chair rose about four feet, when no one was touching it, and when Slade rested one hand on the top of Miss Blackburn's chair, she and the chair were raised about half a yard from the floor.

It came on a slate held by Dr. Slade and myself; on one held by myself alone in the corner of the table farthest from the medium; on a slate which I had myself brought with me, and which I held myself. The latter writing occupied some time in production, and the grating noise of the pencil in forming each word was distinctly audible. A chair opposite to me was raised some eighteen inches from the floor; my slate was taken out of my hand, and produced at the opposite side of the table, where neither Dr. Slade nor I could reach it; the accordion played all round and about me, while the doctor held it by the lower part, and finally, on a touch from his hand upon the back of my chair, I was levitated, chair and all, some inches.
