Magic is all part of the show ...

Now that summer has come and gone, it's time to turn my attention to pantomime. I'm currently working on making people disappear and re-appear somewhere else ...

In Pantomime, magic is all part of the show.

It's not new of course, but there are many different ways of doing it. What is important is how easy it is to perform, but what is essential is how easy is it to set up. Pantomime producers want special effects, but they need them to be easily set up and performed.

"I've studied how to do this for some time."

Thankfully, I've found someone to work with who can build exactly what I need to achieve the effects that I think work the best. Here is the effect that I'm working on. It's a showstopper effect, but does need some work to get it right.

I'll let you know how it's going, but if you are a panto producer, then do come and see me as I have a number of effects that I'm working on that I know you're going to love.

"Would you like to know more?"

If you'd like to find out more about my pantomime effects then do give me a call on 01234 241357 or click here to ping me an email and let's see how I can help you.

Until next time ...
