magi in spain, using a silent crowd build, no table. clips and tips
this is typical of european street acts and works wonderfully in the states if you know the tactics. theres alot to learn here in all different aspects of street performing.
when you're watching it, notice none of them are using a table, cups and balls, and little or no cards, and it's all parlor.
heres a buddy of mine named Istvan doin his finale, he has a full length act totally silent even when he hats em. notice the size of his crowd.
heres a guy doin a silent act no table and twards the end they pan the camara over his audience and you should notice how big it is. theres a lot to learn from this clip.
here's that magician i was talking about that made all the girls in the audience cry, but here he's just doin a sidewalk show.
heres another of him doin a more sidewalk work. this one has got a the most beautiful trick done with a book.
but understand i saw his huge circle show when i was there normally he didn't do sidewalk work.
i never used sound equipment till recently with my silent acts but it's made all the difference in the world.
notice with each one of these guys they gotta small amp HIDDEN from view yet they change music as they need for each routine it doesn't hafta be preset.
notice the type of music they are using, notice the simplisity of the tricks mostly stuff common to all of us, BUT DONE ORIGINALLY.
i've also seen guys just bring a small boom box for smaller shows.
heres another guy in spain, notice the music he's playing in the back ground.
notice he can do the routine with the belongings on his person no table no nothin.just his skill. the people appreciate this and will show it by paying.
he never says a word he lets his skill speak or itself.
heres one last one of my friend Istvan rememeber he does all this silent.
