Done!

Where did you get your case?

I thought it was great!

The only thing I could suggest is to record other shows with different backgrounds and wearing different clothes ... creates the mental impression that you have more experience.

The case...oh how I miss it! There used to be a place in Omaha (where I'm from) called JustinCase. They specialized in cases for rock bands, big ones on tour. They did Dave Mathews, Foo Fighters, etc. They even did Carrot Top's cases. I had two beautiful custom made cases from them and it was a very good price. On tour after a long day of driving, I found myself awoken by a phone call at 6am from the cops in the Pueblo Colorado Hampton Inn this June. Meet them in the lot (I already knew where this was headed). Four cars in the lot broken into. You guessed it-every single thing from the back of my car was taken. Over a thousand of my new business cards, my 6 foot poster of me (I can see why they wanted that honestly). All my sound equipment, speakers, new headset mic, tripod-everything. Well, not quite everything as they left my sport coats and vests. What's up with that?

Had to cancel the rest of the tour, drive back to the The Amazing Arthur World Headquarters and regroup. Went to my custom case store and they went out of business! ARGH.....

Thanks for the comments on the vid!

Great video and website I was laughing at the video and then went to your website and completely lost it with the 9 times gag.
I'd pay to see your act.

Best

I thought that was great,apart from one tiny,minor thing.It probably wouldn't even bother anyone else.
When you get the testimonies from the clients,it would have been nice to include their names.
Reg from Braugner foods,rather than just Braugner foods.
I even thought it was Val from Mont industries....And the Dutch girl,Andrews Van Lines.
Only joking,but I hope you know what I mean.
Everything else was top-notch.

Fantastic!! I loved it! The only thing I will pick on would have to be the quality of the footage for your main stage show. I think it would be amazing to see some more HD footage to really bring out the quality of what you do, I do a lot of corporate work in Australia and I got judged on this. They associated the quality of what I do with the quality of the footage I used. I also think that maybe you could add a few more pieces of footage from different shows just to show how you can do big show and small shows etc, really it's just a chance to show how many gigs you've done as well (build a more credibility!). I also use a website called http://www.pond5.com which is great for finding intros and outros for text which look really professional and some of them only costs $10 each! All these critiques are really just on the technical side of things otherwise your performance and showmanship etc was just amazing!
Love your work mate and all the best!

Fantastic! I can't remember the last time I really laughed hard at another magician's promo video. Really enjoyable. Best to you!

Great promo. I like how you highlighted the comedy on the video and let the testimonials speak to both the comedy and the magic. I think the only thing to change is the production quality. I know it takes some bucks, but consider hiring someone to up the production quality.
