Nice pics...good to see another DPSB in good hands. We love ours, Kristen got to try out Mark's personal one and purchased the second one that was made publicly available. We had Mark cut an additional 4 inches off the height to make it a really tight fit for her.

Let us know when you have video online, we would love to see it.

Keep us the good work!!!

Hey cardcaptor,

Thanks for the comments.

We have a montage video that's almost in it's final edit. If you'd like to see it now, I can email it to you if you'd like. If not, you'll have to wait for a few days before we'll post it on the website and on myspace.

I'll let everyone know when I post it.

Hey Wolfie,

Ya....She gets her fair share of attention from the boys...LOL

She's actually been jumping in and out of Illusions since she was 8 years old.

She's currently developing her own act too.

BTW: I don't know why the video didn't open for you???

It kept telling me that my codec would not work or something to that effect. can I ask if you can try send it again. Maybe the file just got corrupt when the email came through. I did try download it again and still it would not work.

I can imagine your daughter does. Do like Banacheck and bring them in to watch a few mentalist routines and a few escapes. Then tell them that you know what they are thinking and that not even the cops will be able to keep you in jail afterwards. >:o)

First off, I would like to thank Michael for sending me the video.

It was extremely well produced. Good balance of close-up magic with escapes.

Having never seen the DPSB before (except in the Cannon's catalog), it definitely seems to be a great effect. I am a huge fan of full-view escapes. I also love the darby-style cuffs for the bridge jump.

This is a great publicity video. It left me wanting to see more from "The Impossibilist!!"

Hi All,

Thanks for the support!!!!

The video that has been mentioned is slated for completion and broadcast on Sept. 19th. It can be viewed on my myspace site. The body of the video is there, The editing team is just trying to complete the intro. This video is a montage and will be followed with New Podcasts every other week for the next while. They will have anything from close-up magic, stage magic, escapes.

There are a lot of interesting escapes and stunts slated for the next year. We now have a large team of consultants and builders that are all putting a great effort into creating these challenges, and impossible situations, that I have to face. A special thanks goes out to those of you who have become part of "Team Impossible". The countless hours of phone calls and emails have already set a lot of wheels in motion and brought some of these things to life. It's going to be an interesting year and it will be great to see all the ideas, drawings, and concepts become a reality.

They say that when you assemble a group of people with great minds, amazing talents, warm hearts, and ongoing spirit together, Expect nothing short of a masterpiece.

Wolfie, I'll try to email the video again. It will have to wait till tomorrow, because I'm out of town on a gig. I'm writing this from my hotel room but will be on my way home again tomorrow morning.

Thanks again for the support, and I'll keep everyone posted as to the ongoing adventures of "The Impossibilist".

I got it, thank you Michael and Adam. Great vid. Loved the bridge jumpers. What music did you use. That is great music.
I would love to come watch one of your shows one day. I could see what the hype was about.

Actually Wolfie, the hardest part of EVERY Video that we have completed was the music!!!! Can you believe that the song that we used on that clip took close to half a year to find, we have listened to 1000s of tracks!!!

It's a piece that I have purchased the broadcasting rights too and can use anywhere anytime. it will be the theme song for the opening of the show. I have also purchased another 20 tracks for use in some of our other projects.

Filming Magic/ Escapes at this production level is a lot of hard work, and requires a lot of patience. Most importantly, having a good production team is a must!!!

Thnaks again for the nice comments.

Wow. I know the feeling Michael. My Music that I choose for any of my showss is HIGHLY important. has to set the mood psychologically and be entertaing as well as be something that all might listen to. I do create some of my own music. busy with some songs for Perry (Houdini Man). Ask him what some of my songs are like. If you would like I can email you a few that I have created and you can hear what they sound like.

Hey Wolf,

I'd love to hear the music that you've composed.

I also love to see all the different talents that people on the Café here have, outside of magic. That's what makes a forum like this so great. You never know how we can all help each other!!!
