You are so right. We all do take certain moves and accomodate them to our own liking as well as what seems to work best for us.

The only proper way to figure out if soemthing is going to work, is to actually try it and video tape your practice sessions. Then you can watch it and evaluate it yourself as to what worked and what did not.

Memo to self. Scott has a big head. Make sure to mail him ego shrinker. hahaha. I am just teasing ya. Thanks for the kind words.

I find video taping your practice sessions really does help you to really learn in a much better fashion. It is also way better then using a mirror as with a mirror you're seeing a reflection and you becomes to dependent on seeing your image when you perform.

You'll also subconciously blink at the key moves if you practice in the mirror - so that you don't see them. Thus when you come to perform for real, you'll not only be unknowingly 'flashing' but you'll be blinking when you're doing it. The video camera is the only way!

Maylor is right. This is called the point of indication. You won't see this in a mirror because your eyes will be closed, and you must catch yourself early on a video camera.

Zombie:
Video is the only way to go. What also happens is the performer becomes to dependent on the mirror. When the mirror is not there in real performance, the performer gets flustered and confused.

Kevin:
Glad you enjoyed that my friend. I have really enjoyed your posts. You have great thoughts and ideas and I appreciate the time you put into each one of them. I hope to see you at a convention one day. Your a good guy.

I no longer use a mirror for practice.
Upon taping myself, for the first time, I found myself looking as if I were performing in front of a mirror! Smile
Kind of hard to explain but I had become fixated in moving and executing effects as I had seen them in the mirror. Not good at all! Now its video all the way.

Besides, if you execute the effect WELL you can really impress yourself. You'll find yourself returning to the drawn' board or saying "God! I'm good!".

I hope my check is in the mail.

Randy:
You said it exactly as it had happened to me and I guess numerous others. You get to used to relaying on your own reflection. When you get to the real performance, your not in front of that mirror any longer and things do not feel or react the same way.

The camera does not lie and it shows you exactly what the audience will be seeing. It really is the only way to practice your act.
