 AUDIENCE INTERACTION PREDICTION
RICH HILL'S ILLUSIONSHOP

(One Of A Kind) - stage/parlor mentalism item. Prop was built by Rich Hill's Illusionshop and is in mint condition. In the presentation, an upright stand is wheeled out to the stage. On the stand is a large, custom built, dry erase board as well as a shelf containing a pad, pens, and three foam balls. Three balls are thrown into the audience to select three people at random. These people stand up and are asked to think of a 3 or 4 digit number (depending on the performer's preference). As they do, the performer concentrates on them, in order to read their mind.
Performer picks up the large marker and writes his prediction on the back of the dry erase board (which faces away from the audience). This locks his prediction in and it can not be changed. From now on, he never approaches the board again. Each of the three audience members are then invited to write their numbers onto a pad and a fourth adds those numbers together to form a total. Entire audience repeats the total out loud, making it a very recognizable number. When the magician turns around the dry erase board, the audience sees that the magician's prediction, written before any one said or wrote their numbers, perfectly matches the total of the thought of numbers. This piece takes the "Add A Number" routine to a full-scale interactive piece suitable for a 1,500 seat theater. Packs flat for shipping and can be assembled in 5 minutes. Stand also has a special holder for can of spray paint, if the performer would prefer to clip a piece of paper over the board and spray paint their prediction, which they can then give away as a souvenir. Stand is beautiful, powder-coated in black with grating surfaces and cable and turn buckle accents, for an industrial look, and a clear plexiglass holder for the dry erase board. Board itself is white on both sides with thin aluminum trim.

An amazing trick - larger version seen by Jon Dorenbos on Americas Got Talent. Money is placed in chest and locked. Four darts are thrown at dart board map of the united states (magnetic darts). Each state has a number. Magician adds the numbers on calculator. Chest is opened by spectators and they think number will add to change. But in fact all four quarters are match to the states. Magician never touches the chest and no extra assistants are needed. Can also be done where 4 quarters go in box and locked when opened the four quarters match. Beautifully made in high quality craftmanship. Very few of these exist. Dart board not shown is 2 feet by 3 feet.

 BARRICADED BARRELS
BRUCE CHADWICK FABRICATION

Looking for an impossible illusion that looks like everyday objects, can be performed surrounded and is not seen often on stage today? This is the illusion you have been looking for? This can be performed by just two people. A classic illusion that is rarely seen on stage anymore. It's called the Barricaded Barrels or Through the Eye of a Needle. Assistant impossibly passes through two barriers, a set of bars and a wooden "target" with a one inch hole. The bars were made by Bruce Chadwick and the barrels are real whisky barrels. The trucks they rest on are steel and very solidly built. The elements of the prop were meant to look rustic. The wooden target was well-built and instead of the gaudy red and white that is usually painted on it, it was made with alternating dark and light stain to make it fit the look of the prop much better.

 WALKING THROUGH A FAN
CREEATIONS LAS VEGAS

This Walking Through a Fan illusion is a large, impressive prop and illusion for your Halloween show. Originally built for and performed by Dan Sperry by Creeations in Las Vegas, NV. It works smoothly and is very safe, even though it looks frightening. This can be performed by just two people. There are some issues with the prop due to an overzealous forklift operator during shipping.
I will describe before purchase. Nothing that affects the performance of the prop. There is no case for the prop.
Prop shows wear and may need some refurbising. Video of prop in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_VIM_oMzlw

 UNEXPECTED
PRODUCTION BOX
TIM CLOTHIER

This one of a kind, expertly constructed production illusion was custom built by Tim Clothier of Illusion Projects in Las Vegas and can fit in the back of your car. It was artistically themed as an ordinary wooden crate, elevated above the stage on a thin aluminum stand. Audience can see under and around the box at all times. In the performance, the crate is revolved and shown empty on all sides. Front is opened and the interior of the box is shown to be completely empty as well (it is extremely deceptive from even inches away). Every part of the box is very thin. Front is closed and the magic begins. Instantly, a door on the top of the box is opened and hand fulls of items, for example, dozens of eggs, baseballs, etc. are removed from the box and placed into a glass bowl. Front is opened and the box is still empty. This can be repeated several times. For a finale, when the front door is opened, a small/mid-size animal, a client's product, or any final production item is now seen sitting inside, filling up the box's interior. This can also be used to make objects disappear. Very unique in that the box can be shown empty all around, inside and out, yet items can be produced from the top and the front, with the final reveal happening with a clear display at the front of the box (instead of the item just being lifted out from the top). There is also a removable sign that can be attached to top of box where the name of the routine or "Appearing _______" can be written, to add additional personality to routine. Sign is optional. Includes: illusion, wooden transport case, and performance rights. Production items not included. If buyer can pickup in Los Angeles - does not need case built, $100 can be deducted.

 STARGATE AND ATA CASE
MAGIC MAKERS / GERRY FRENETTE

This is a terrific appearance for a magician or assistant at beginning of a show. This can be performed by just two people. Prop has been improved recently with cross support bars that run from leg to leg to keep prop stable during performance. Neon (an upgrade from builder) is working and looks excellent. Fabric on the top trap could be tightened or replaced. Balance of prop is in good shape and still has much life left in it. It comes with two batteries (primary and spare) and charger for the neon light.

DISEMBODIED
& ATA CASE
Sterlini Magic
(Done Completely Surrounded)

Own a piece of Magic History and perform a great illusion that's in excellent condition. This is the "actual illusion" used on the TV series. This can be "done totally surrounded" unlike many of the "Disembodied Princess" props. It can even hold a 6 foot magician (easily) or an assistant in performing the miraculous illusion by putting two blades through the head and torso and then open all doors and show how the head and legs remain but the middle has disappeared (as the head and feet sit in full view). It's then spun all the way around and illusionist puts himself or something through it to discard possible mirrors being used and to show that the middle is really gone while legs and head remain in full view. All is then reversed by closing all doors and person comes out restored. An extremely deceptive illusion, and this type is rarely—if it’s at all—seen. The prop is in an "extremely" good condition.

OWEN MAGIC SUPREME
A sensational, promotable illusion! A long cloth is stretched out and the LOUD GROWL of a big engine is heard. The cloth drops to reveal a real car; broadside to the audience, with the performer at the wheel. The car makes its appearance so quickly that explanations seem to be ruled out. The illusion may be performed without alterations to the stage, and may be struck quickly. Of course, you do have to do something with the car... Since the apparatus is adaptable to nearly any vehicle, a promotional tie-in with a local dealer could be of mutual benefit! The illusion needs a fake table for the car to appears on and cloths.
