Smoke signals: Jason Brumbalow talks about upcoming Pure Smoke

October 6th, 2011 | Joe Hadsall | Filed Under Artist Interviews, General

In about two weeks, you’ll get the chance to get something that has been in development for almost two years. And it’s something that Ellusionist Vice President Jason Brumbalow is really proud of.

Pure Smoke, Ellusionist’s new smoke system, is a major upgrade over virtually every smoke delivery system on the market for good reason: It’s more compact, easy to use, economic and the smoke it delivers is mystical and mysterious — it looks like it’s straight out of a computer-animated fantasy movie.

But the system didn’t happen overnight. In this podcast, JBone talks about the design behind Pure Smoke, its debut at the Magic Live Conference, some of the improvements since that debut and some of the crazy ways magicians are already using it. Also, Jason dishes about some new products coming out before the end of the year.



  1. If I couldn’t get one when it comes out, will these be in regular production?

  2. As I hear it… 😛 … it sounds like this will be a definite buy for me. Thanks for the little sound-bites on this and the other effects it’s been done for…they’ve really helped me decide/cut down my options for what effects/tricks to buy from you all at Ellusionist.

  3. By the way, it looks like your podcast feed is broken in iTunes.

  4. I just placed my order does anyone know where the video is they are speaking of in the podcast ?
