If you haven't seen this sister topic... you should.

Having been the safety man on a buried alive stunt. I understand the importance of a back up plan very well.

He did get out of the chains though, and I say that counts as a WEAR escape.

Two successful escapes. A few photos and I'm waiting to get the video from the resident glass artist at the gallery.

Thanks to Dr. Wilson for doing all of the internet organization.

So what is everybody's plan for 2011?

2011? Let's get 2009 squared away. I still have video decompression and editing ahead of me. Several of us will be at the Sideshow Gathering, let's plot there.

Yours,

Paul

Well, torrential rain prevented me from performing the intended Impressively Named Escape, so I teamed up with two other performers for the impromptu 3-Man, Interlocked, Straight Jacket Escape of Ridiculousness. Video is on Facebook, I'll have to get a copy to put up on the official WEAR page.

Yep- Every two years.
As for our escapes- Epic fail.
We lost our venue and had rain on the streets. Nowhere to perform!!
'Grats to all of the successful WEARiors!
We'll be back in the running for the next!

Swami Yo, post on YouTube and I will embed it on the WEAR 2009 page.

Tough break for you, Gwyd, but I'm sure you and Sylver will be thrilling the masses next time.

Yours,

Paul

Thanks, Paul. Turns out it's on YouTube, but it's 12 minutes of raw video; I'll have to edit it down and send it to you.

This is the first time that video of the Chrysalis escape has been publicly posted.

FYI....the two gentlemen putting me in the belt are actually prisoners doing community service at the event. Im not sure you can hear it on the video but he says "Too tight"" and I said "No. Have you done this before?" and he says " I may have done it a time or two."

Just wanted to inform everyone that I've e-mailed the WEAR video link, making specific reference to Bruce Bunnell's guillotine escape, to Prof. Daniel Gerould. He's a professor of theater who wrote Guillotine, Its Legend and Lore, a definitive book on the guillotine as a cultural icon

Well, we pulled it off. However there were some technical difficulties. The worst part was that in rehearsal I ran out of time!

I do need to thank my two daughters and my brother who helped with the presentation and also solve some of the last minute technical problems. I have heard it said that something goes wrong with every performance. The secret is not to let anyone know about them. I can't say enough about good help and I do have the best!!
