Been wondering about that as well...we were looking for a builder to pull off a custom job and they never replied. Also, Mark Parker posted that his "Revolution" rights are no longer with Oz Illusions but they havent removed it from their site. Any ideas anyone?

I too have tried to contact them about a product about a month ago. I emailed once a week and still no response. I attached a reciept and according to that they haven't even opened it yet.

Doesn't sound good.

Is anyone in the middle of a project with them that might have additional insight?

I was still in contact with Chris Murphy of OZ Illusions just a few months ago but the last I heard from him, he's no longer building illusions and have decided to spend more time with his family.

He's a great builder and an overall great guy, and his leaving of the illusion building business is a great loss to our industry.

Nonetheless I would still wish him nothing but the absolute best in whatever he chooses to do.

I just spent a day with Chris. His computer has crashed so, if you have emailed him, he has not received it. He is currently on a sabbatical from Illusion building. However, I expect to see something magic-related to come out in a year or so. That's my 2 cents.

Not particularly professional by the sounds of things.

Not professional? He's taking time out to spend more time with his family. Sounds like a good idea to me.
Don't get even... Get odd!

A good idea personally ... but Futureal said "professionally." To leave up a website, particularly one that boasts exclusivity that you no longer hold, is unprofessional. It could possibly have harmed Mark Parker if someone was interested in his product but thought the only official builder was unavailable.

I think spending time with one's family is great .... but at LEAST put up notice on your home page that you are taking a sabbatical.

This all seems moot now since the site seems to be down.

Chris Murphy is one of the best builders in this business and is really sad to see that he is taking a break from building the illusions... I am glad to own a few pieces of fine equipments built by him, and I am hoping that one day he would return to the magic scene again!

One of my pieces from him had some problems and I emailed him for advice. However the email bounced back. I do hope that he would come back to the business...
