Lots of little comedy bits to go with this...... Um the painter was painting a snow storm, (show the canvas blank), Mabey the paper could be the actual painter. he was born from dust, became man, died, became dust again, and the dust (paper actually) becomes the new painting and it is blown into the air towards the canvas.................... This is coming together nice........

I've not performed, this stunt yet, but plan to in my next major appearance.
I'm split between two different ways to perform this stunt. As I live & perform in Minnesota a sob story about never having seen snow won't work so I'm going the other way and telling of the Blizzard of 86. There is a popular childrens camp song sung to the tune of MacNamara's Band I plan to sing as I perform. I like to sing as I perform some of my tricks, kinda' like Shari Lewis but with more of a baratone. My other Idea is to ask how many in the audience have see "The Karate Kid" and I talk about the scene wher Mr. Miagi slaps his hands together to make his Chi hot and then fixes the kids broken leg. I then tell the audience that I thought that it was a bunch of movie malarky. But since then I've been taking some kung fu lessons and I need to show you something that is so cool. I
plan to use a DeLite to make my hand glow hot drying the tissue paper and blow
it around with a card fan.

Brandon-
I really like your idea of using the snowstorm with the canvas idea! Very original and very creative! Good Luck!

Isn't this section for reviewing large stage illusions???

Perhaps one could present the snow storm as a snow cone machine that gets out of control...?
I do a butterfly storm from a Kabuki butterfly routine.

The best rendition I've ever seen of this effect was done by David Copperfield (complete with Sappy script (whatever Sappy means!))

It was in London a few years ago, when he was doing his "Flying" routine - surprisingly, "Snow" was his finale piece!

That was an awesome show of Copperfield's. I think his best.

Hey Daniel, I think Snow is a Grand Illusion....... don't you? It cannot be done in a livingroom, and it fills the whole stage....... Just my opinion though...

I have performed my "Dandruff Storm" routine for Gary Darwin and friends at the Denny and Lee Tuesday night show on several occasions. Yes... it got huge laughs. Tried it for laymen just to see if it had the same impact and yes it got great laughs. Could it be that the sappy story is becoming...well...sappy?

I have also been thinking about alternative presentations as I'm hoping to buy an animator soon.

Here are a few ideas that I've had to get you thinking......

Think rose petals......

Think butterflies......

Think golden leaves that you used to like walking through, but now all the leaves have gone.....

Think MONEY, ripping up a lottery ticket to create lots and lots of money

Think DLITE, ending your routine with reflective snowstorm material and a purposely positionned uplighter, giving the impression of millions of fireflies leaving your hands.

I'll keep thinking of some more, I stilllove the original dreaming of snow performance, but its still good fun thinking outside the box!

Does anyone have any recommendations for Snowstorm illusions? I'm thinking of the traditional fan version.

Tim, for some reason I got to thinking of the forest fire setting and that led me to think of falling ashes... Falling ashes reminds me of Schindler's List. On a more serious note, what if you paid tribute to the millions that died in the concentration camps during the Halaucost (sp?) or would this be too morbid? Maybe you could even tie in the "sappy story" with it somehow and the "ash" is actually "snow"... Like have the story of an old man (possibly a great-grandfather) and his survival during that horrible time and the only thing that gave him hope was the snow... Each snow-flake had so much freedom as it fluttered about... Or in the horrific times of trial... as ash filled the air, grandpa would imagine it was snow... until one day the dark and gray sky turned to a deep blue with millions of white flakes (signifying the end of that tragedy...).

I'm sure it would already tug on some "emotional-strings" and with the right story under proper circumstances would really be an incredible piece if written in a respectable context.

Just an idea!

Dang - I thought I was the only one who thought of the dandruff idea. haha. anyway - I tried it in a few shows and it didn't work for me the way I wanted it to, so I went back to my normal routine.
