I've got some old notes some where that describle a flash 8 ball production followed by the appearance of a dove on top of the balls in the hand. Quite good if you're into doves I guess.

Thank you for the kind words. I do appreciate it and hope that some of my ideas and suggestions have been a help to you. As Jim says, an act with just "magical bubblegum" doesn't do anything for your audience but givbe you a big head and impress yourself. There really is so much more you can add to any manipulative routine that will give your audiences more to get excited about. We should all strive to push ourselves more then we often do.

ABC:
Thank you kindly! That is very nice of you to say. I hope my ideas have helped you. If you would like to talk about any of your own act or routine, please just let me know.

I have some thoughts I'll like to share with everyone here, since we are on the topic of stage character.
Although we should develop a character and develop our act into one filled with meaning, sort of like a stage play, we should not leave out the magic.

I've seen many acts where the magician puts in a lot of effort into the theme. He dresses himself up in great detail of a Santa Claus or a washerwoman but his magic is very limited. Of the three or so minutes on stage he only does a simple levitation of a lady. It really makes the audience say,"interesting...but where's the magic? I've seen this one before.."

I feel we shouldn't be so blatant in making out a character for ourselves. It makes us look like we're trying too hard. If you don't have a face of a washerwoman or look like one, then don't try to be one! Exatcly what Jim says, donning a clown's suit doesn't make you any more clownish than any of us.

I realise the importance of character in making the act more substantiated and meaningful but what if you just want to portray yourself as a magician? What do magicians look like?

Oh and I think we owe James an apology from deviating from his question like that. Heh! Anyway, I use snowstorm as an ending from my ball act as they are white, and from my feedback they look very good. A ball changes to a whole cloud of snow. You can try streamers or confetti. Oh and if the ball act is not alone and you have something coming up straight after it, just make the last ball disappear and appear whatever props that comes after that to begin your new sequence.
