I have several DVDs from the Colombinis and I never found the living room format to be in any way limiting to learning. I actually think it would be a great thing if more of the people whose work I want to learn from would follow the same no-frills production methods. Sure beats hearing that someone recorded a project with one of the video houses and the footage just sat for years before being released.

And I pay for information above production value. I would pay $30 for Master Payne's Medieval Magic DVD whether it was done on a fancy set with three cameras or in a living room with an iPhone. If I get the methods, the presentation, and the very important thinking behind both, I get good value.

Please do consider doing this, Payne. It won't make you rich but it will make the world of magic much richer.

At the very least an actual on location performance dvd to accompany the book would be great. To visually see in action what you have discussed in the book would be a great supplement. Especially for the type of work you are talking about. Performance art is visual by nature, and what we are talking about is as much or more about the performance than the magic.

I think that this gentleman will do whatever he wants whenever he wants to do it.

Greetings and Salutations,

It is inconceivable that I missed this topic until now, but, I, too, will be in line to acquire said book and DVD.

Master Payne's previous work is quite masterful, and along with Bill Palmer's notes on Ren Faires should be required reading for anyone interested in working these types of venues.

God's Speede and Fare Thee Well, Master Payne!

Master Payne, I had never seen your routine and I must say I'm under the charm.
Your patter and your acting are wonderful.
It's a true masterpiece. Very inspiring.

For my money, your genius lies in your character development, scripting, and presentation. In other words, the theatrical value of what you have created and how you deliver it. As Lawrence O. pointed out above, it is a real study in scripting and acting, two areas that magicians as a group seem to be particularly weak in.

I couldn't have said it better.

Having just had the pleasure of meeting Master Payne and watching his lecture/ powerpoint at the recent Texas Association of Magicians Convention; I would heartily second/100th the sentiments of others in purchasing a book/ dvd of your renaissance work. Thank you for doing so much for our humble convention.

Cheers!

A book of this type is exactly the way to archive this brilliant man's work! "...Jokes..." is highly recommended. It's on the level of Walt Anthony's "Tales Of Enchantment". So yeah. Looking forward to this...
