Topic: I really need help...
Message: Posted by: Andrew H. (Oct 18, 2007 10:54PM)
I need help on many different levels. Iím in search of a mentor for both close-up and stage. I have good magicians in my area, but they're really not the mentor type. I have a pretty strong background and have won a few competitions.
Iím also looking for information on a 19th century snake oil salesman act. If anyone has any advice for me I would greatly appreciate it.

What kind of stage magic are you into or need help with. I may not be a mentor to you. but I'll be willing to help you out if I can. I also need help but I'm unable to find it. Even though I'm willing to pay for it I cant find anyone to assist me.

Doves mostly. I want to take a dove act to compete with, but my friends say that itís not original enough. I just really want someone that I can call for help.

They may and may not be right. The main thing is how are you going to produce them. You need to think of how your going to produce them, plus be sure they're not going to have a heart attack or be cooped up to long for this. If you want pm me on this or contact me on aim.

I have the act put together and have been doing it for about two years. It's hard to tell without someone actually there to observe.

How has the response been, and have you had anyone give you advice after doing it? What are you trying to accomplish? Making them appear, disappear etc. and is there a video of it?

BDC,

I havenít seen you since twin city two years ago. I'll give it some thought. Another factor is how much you charge, I am a college student so funds are limited!

Andrew
P.S. Maybe I could put your problems in some cement loafer, LOL.
