This is my first performance of my 85 gallon escape barrel on stage. I only had two minutes so I had to leave out an inspection which is too bad but overall it went pretty well. http://youtube.com/watch?v=6u2sG0I2HP4

Hi,

Its nice, but not really my style.

You've taken a really hardcore escape and turned it in to an illusion, which I think is a shame.

From your audience's reaction it did seem to go down well, but I've seen this escape performed as a serious escape and it totally killed.

Next time you try it out, have it done as a serious escape.

Also, what happened to the water?

I've always felt it was the danger element that really killed the audience and sadly you took that away.

I hope you don't mind me saying these things. I don't mean to offend and appologise if I have.

Have fun with it and I look forward to seeing the next vid.

No affence taken this was a last minute performance that was just for fun and with the circumstances water was not possible unfortunatley. I can use water but as I said it wouldent have worked there. Thank you for the advice!

I must say that I too agree. But that is just my oppinion. I did like the twist to it though. So I would say that my oppinion would be more of a mixed feeling with it.

Ya the ideal way I would get say 10 volenteers up it would be full of water and I would let them inspect it. Then I would be cuffed and locked inside once my assistants raised the curtain the volenteers would hold hands around the curtain making a chain so noone can get in or out. Then aorund three minutes later of dramatic music my assitants would start to freak out and when they drop the curtain I'm ontop driping wet. I plan to do something like rhat as a stunt soon. Does anyone have another idea for a differnt publicity stunt with this?

Not bad, I agree with some of the comments about maybe needing a little more 'danger' to the effect, but I also know EXACTLY where your comming from when you say that you couldn't accomodate it where you were at. Good job though, If I was in the audience I would have enjoyed the performance.

Looking forward to more clips :o)
...for the 51st time... that is NOT my card...
