Do you want to improve your own magic?
I’ve decided that it’s my job to leave quality breadcrumbs for future generations of magicians.
More specifically, as the center for quality magic information on the web, I want to guide you in the best possible direction in order for you to grow as an individual artist. The time has come to connect all of the ideas and take it to a new level. My intention is to inspire you with hand-picked fantastic vintage magic clips here in the Ellusionist Performance HQ Forums and Ellusionst Blog.
Again, I ask you – Do you want to improve your own magic?
Exposing you to high quality magic, from amazing magicians, only increases the chances of that happening. It also helps educate you about magic’s rich past. In turn the art of magic advances, and ultimately, that’s want I want.
