Something’s cooking!!!

Something fun and exciting is coming up shortly so do stay tuned for da news that will be officially released next week 😉

For the past few years, corporate shows here and overseas aside, J C & yours truly have been doing several high-profile illusion shows like ticketed stints at Clarke Quay, St James, and more… besides, public shows for the Singapore Tourism Board, Singapore Press Holdings, Mediacorp, etc.

This May, the core Concept:Magic team has cooked up something wickedly different and will be dishing it out in a couple of weeks… People following us would be aware of our recent “Own the Stage” project, which saw talented 12 year old Singaporean magician, Dean Wong, win the much coveted spot 🙂

Now as you’ve correctly guessed, that’s connected to our new upcoming project – and you’ll find out everything about it VERY soon but till then, here’s a couple of our fave random videos… Hahaha… Enjoy!

J C’s 2007 skyscraper teleportation – up 50 floors in 5 seconds!

My 2008 mega escape in Clarke Quay, supported by the Singapore Tourism Board – 90 seconds to cheat death, baby!

Our 2008 mega illusion for STB’s inaugural Singapore River Festival, which saw us teleport 3 spectators across the Singapore River in 2.5 seconds!

Inversion: Extreme Escape… My upside-down Houdini straitjacket escape stunt which saw me hanging from my ankles without any safety devices whatsoever, with a bed of deadly spikes waiting for me if I should fall!

Our SUCCESSFUL world record for the most number of illusions performed in 5 minutes, the closing act for STB’s Singapore River Festival last year. Officials from the Singapore Book of Records & International Brotherhood of Magicians were there to audit the entire process.

The Straits Times reported  that a whopping 16,000 people witnessed our visual cross-island car teleportation mega illusion, Destination X.

Our Merlin Awards event last October, which saw Tony Hassini (President of the International Magicians Society) personally fly down from New York to hand us our individual awards. Past recipients include David Copperfield and Criss Angel. J C & I are the first Singapore illusionists to be awarded this coveted award, which is like the Oscars of Magic 🙂

During that night of our Merlin Award presentations, we performed Crystal Metamorphosis (my favorite illusion!) designed by J C, amongst other things. Proud to say, professional illusionists overseas have been inspired and  have recently used it after buying J C’s original material. Read Backstage Business for more about that…

Video trailer for our illusion stint at St James, which we performed at after our first-of-its-kind 13 month contract at The Arena in Clarke Quay wrapped up.

My most recent show trailer… the older videos I’ve chucked so as not to confuse people but my previous ones on YouTube had thousands of views *grin*

Earlier this year J C & I successfully predicted the local lottery results. STB’s asst director audited the entire process and the controversial event was covered by local and regional media!

…And about a month ago, yours truly did a video tutorial on weapon flourishing… this time around, it was on the Japanese Sais. You know, the deadly daggers used by Elektra? Raphael of TMNT? Heh heh heh. There was also shades of my hero Bruce Lee in it, towards the end, check it out 😉

Well, we’ve got much more stuff on our Concept:Magic channel, feel free to toggle and watch – J C’s got plenty of street magic vids, having done Singapore’s first street magic series on TV in 2006, as well as, magic in motion specials for SPHMBO in 2007.

Righty, it’s Friday – so do chillax and enjoy the weekend… Ta for now, more laterrrrrr 😉
