As a professional Magician Timothy Drake has learned that you don’t move upward and onward in your career without the help and backing of your fellow magicians. From the birthday party to the largest of corporate entertainment shows, the success you may enjoy in that performance is due to the sharing of secrets, advice and assistance from friends in magic. A recent Holographic Project in Toronto would not have been successfully completed if not for the help of to good friends and fellow magicians, The Amazing Corbin and Peter Mennie.
Thats what magicians do….. they help other magicians to further their art. Drake has assisted in the past with media for both Peter and Corbin. Drake recently completed a long overdue website for The Amazing Corbin that you can see here. Its a circle that keeps repeating. Who knows what will happen next. No matter what… it promised to be yet another adventure.
When Toronto Magician Timothy Drake first began performing he was quite sure that it was the amazing tricks, or the large props or the mystery created in his show that was what mattered most. Drake was wrong. As time and experience performing magic in front of an audience would eventually teach him… it wasn’t the tricks or effects that mattered. Connect with your audience in a magical way and you’ll see for yourself. It’s only the smiles in the audience that matter……. and thats all.
If you have ever heard magicians or illusionists ask you to not video tape or photograph their show … it is for a reason. The art of magic is all about fooling your senses and especially about fooling your eyes. Photos and video have the ability to expose the secrets of magic and thus are not welcomed by many magicians. Here is a secret my own camera exposed. This spinning buzz saw attraction at the Shriners Haunted Mansion in London proved to be a lot of fun but had to be retired after two years because some people were simply too afraid to pass through it. The illusion appeared to be large spinning buzz saws with sharp teeth that would come out of the walls at random times and threaten your safety as you walked down the corridor. It was in fact very safe but some visitors were frightened by the look of those giant blades. Here, with the aid of a motion stopping flash you can look closely and see that the blades were really only painted on and the discs were really smoothed edged in case you did get touched by them. When the blades were spinning you eye would not be able to see this and you would instead see only the teeth of the saw blade.
With Summer now a memory we are entering fall and I am dreading the return of the terrible white stuff. Call it white and fluffy and attach any Christmas memories to it but the fact remains that it’s a magicians nemesis. Many times I’ve come very close to having some serious accidents driving to and from shows on snow covered roads of Ontario in the winter. Such is life in Canada.
Back in 2005 a fundraising show I was hired to do was to take place on a Sunday Morning. I don’t know why they expected people to turn out for a magic show at 10:30 am but the client did and the client is always right so it was ON WITH THE SHOW.
Of course Mother Nature had different plans and dropped a blizzard on us in the early AM hrs blocking most roads for miles. Attendance for that show topped a whopping 25 people who braved the storm. We had seating for 275. Not one of my more happy shows I can tell you that. But the show DID go on and thats what matters. We still had fun.
After the show I decided to mark the occasion and take a photo that I could look back and laugh at some day. Ryan Joyce was a special guest at that show and posed in this photo with me.
On Sept 14th The Society of American Magicians awarded Illusionist David Copperfield the title of “Magician of the Century” as well as ” King of Magic”. Copperfield needs no introduction to either laymen ( what we magicians call you non-magicians ) or magicians. His pioneering magic and illusion had inspired many of todays magic performers around the world. I recently attended his show in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand and had the honor of meeting him backstage after the show. He proved a most gracious host.
Here is the illusion that inspired me to take the step into performing the Magic arts. I hope it will inspire others as well.
Congratulations David Copperfield….. you have earned it.
My very favorite version of this illusion performed by Ryan Joyce. Every movement and sound carefully thought out and presented. Nobody else does it like THIS!
