Friday, December 9th, 2011

As another year draws to a close, and the merriment of the festive season just two weeks away, we here at Ellusionist wanted to take the time to thank you for all the support you’ve shown us over the last year, and wish you – from all of our families, to all of yours – a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanza, Festive Yule and an altogether Happy Holidays – and rather than writing down our thoughts – we figured it was better said like this;

There’s still more from us to come this year, with Metal 2 & 3 just around the corner, and some more exciting launches in the next weeks – but before everyone gets caught up in the Tinsel and Turkeys, we wanted to wish you all the best for the season.

Again – thanks for all the support, we’ll see you in 2012 for another great year.

Happy Holidays,

-Team Ellusionist.

Milbourne Christopher: Magic Legends presented by Lee Asher

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Melbourne Christopher MAGIC LEGENDS presented by Lee Asher

Milbourne Christopher (1914 – 1984) was an American illusionist.

He wrote more than twenty books, was national president of the Society of American Magicians (SAM), and was an honorary vice-president to the London Magic Circle. Milbourne Christopher was also chairman of SAM’s Occult Investigating Committee and was one of the original members of CSICOP.

His collection of magic memorabilia contained prints, paintings, photographs, posters, playbills and drawings of the greatest conjurers in history, and was the largest in private hands. Many of these items appeared in his book The Illustrated History of Magic.

FACT: David Coperfield owns the Milbourne Christopher collection and houses it in his secret warehouse in Las Vegas.

With more than 20 books, 10 TV specials (including the first on prime time network TV in the US), two Broadway magic shows, one off-Broadway spectacular, starring roles at Madison Square Garden’s Magicworld and performances in 72 countries, he was a master to say the least.

Watch Milbourne Christopher perform the Sword Basket illusion.

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.

Sifting through thousands of magic videos and choosing the purest performances has been a hefty project and a lofty goal, to be sure. Nonetheless, you’re worth ALL of the effort. If you’ve never heard of these magicians or their accomplishments, do yourself a favor and learn about them. You have my word it will make you a better magician, and swiftly assist you in achieving results that you’ve always strived for.

We start with two fantastic clips of Robert Harbin: one of the greatest magicians to ever live. Click here to view the full archive. You’ll find vintage magic videos, a small biography and a link for further information about this Magic Legend. Follow the quality breadcrumb trail…

Enjoy!

Cheers,
Lee Asher

PS. Make sure to comment on each video you watch. I look forward to hearing from you.

Minutes away from Metal: Sets of four Walking Liberties up for grabs during release

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Metal by Eric Jones from Ellusionist on Vimeo.

About ready to get Metal? Your chance to get the latest offering in coin magic, and a set of four Walking Liberties, is hours away.

Metal: Getting Started in High Impact Coin Magic fills a void that we at Ellusionist saw in the magic market. With so much dizzying, knuckle-busting, beautiful coin effects released lately, there wasn’t a definitive, solid compendium of beginning moves and intermediate routines that allowed magicians to get a solid foundation.

Eric Jones’ Metal features a full collection of vanishes, productions and routines featuring the smooth handlings that made him an underground master. The video is packed with more than two hours instruction of practical, gaffless routines and effects that can be done at a table or standing surrounded by a crowd.

Ellusionist also has some silver to give away with Metal. Five winners, randomly drawn from the first 100 orders, will of four 1929 “Walking Liberty” half dollars (the best $2 prize we’ve ever offered). We’ll tape the drawing live and show the results to the world on Tuesday.

From advance reviews that we’ve received, Metal is destined for “must-have magic” status. It’s filmed with the attention to detail, breadth and quality for which Ellusionist is known around the world. Metal will get you on the path to becoming classic with coins.

Metal will be available for purchase at 4 p.m. today (U.S. Eastern, 1 p.m. U.S. Pacific).
