Tips for Performing and Repairing Sword Through Neck
The sword through neck trick has been a favorite for audiences and performers alike. So called "Danger" tricks create a make for more excitement and intrigue although there is really nothing dangerous about this one at all. Magicians also like it, because it is always ready to go. Once you complete one performance, you are ready for the next with no reset required. The biggest drawback is the sword itself and it must be properly maintained and refurbished over time.

The Audience Doesn’t Care -- Surefire Ways to Improve Your Act and Stun a Crowd!
I’ve been a performer for as long as I can remember. If it wasn’t doing simple magic tricks during my elementary school show and tells or talent shows, it was annoying the hell out of my parents and neighbors with “pick a card” style tricks. I’ve been blessed in a way I guess. I started learning how to do magic at the young age of two and a half years old. Back then it wasn’t really magic. To be honest I’m sure it was more goofing around than anything, but my parents pretended to be entertained and fed the need to learn more.
Improving Your Act: Six Things You Can Do To Be A Better Magician.
When someone wants to improve at a skill or sport they must go through a series of things in order to improve at it. They must understand the How, When, Where, and Why behind the skill they wish to learn and then they must practice to build the needed confidence and dexterity to execute the skill flawlessly every time. Magic is no different!
Evolution & The Endless Pursuit Of Perfection
When is it time to say “this effect is finished” and when to say its done. I’d say it depends on the piece. And the audience’s reaction to the effect. My personal opinion and my observation of the matter is an effect is never finished and is in constant motion and evolution at all times. I’ve designed and built many large stage illusions. (As well as small ones) One of which probably a handful of times. If the effect had not been re-addressed over and over it’d not be the miracle it is today. Unlike a painting. Which is a stationary piece of art. Magic is a malleable and in constant state of flux. A good performer should always be in the pursuit of evolution originality and perfection of whatever piece he or she is doing. But. When is it time to say one is finished? I feel its the million dollar question.
