It is a couple of busy weeks ahead with “bread & butter” corporate illusion shows in Singapore & overseas, a premium ticketed “Beyond the Mirror” show on 2 Nov and the upcoming release of “The Event Magician” 2-vol book set.
From Dec, we will be back to our more “usual” grind! If you did not know, Ning has actually been on a scheduled 9-month break overseas since the end of Mar, earlier this year. This was just when we wrapped up our TV projects with our 3D TV show and “M for Magic” Season 1.
In the time she has been away, all my illusion shows were reformatted as a solo show but capably assisted by professional dancers/ “box jumpers”. We just did another successful corporate show yesterday for an international audience. It was for Wynn International so naturally a gaming theme was customized into the bilingual show.
I also worked on my passion projects like “Beyond the Mirror” and released my DVD/ books (“Behind the Illusions”, “Urban Illusions”, “Pack Flat Illusions for Kids & Family Shows”), to the international mass magic market. I held off all our major duo milestone projects during this period too. However, we will start a grueling rehearsal and full show schedule from the end of Nov with projects currently leading up to Mar 2012.
Here is a sneak peek of what we have in the pipeline.
At the start of Dec, Ning has a cover magazine photoshoot that will be out in Jan 2012. We have also been invited to perform for a top variety TV show in Europe so if that gets signed off on, we fly for a few days to do that in between corporate shows. We are are also planning the production schedule for “M for Magic” season 2 that Ning & I will be hosting as well as co-producing. Shows leading up till and on New Year’s Eve.
In Jan 2012, we will likely be heading to India for a show if the final budget is approved. We will also be staging our latest mega illusion event and a public show a week later. This will be followed by an appearance for a local Arts Festival where we will also be presented with a special award. I will also be releasing my next book “Illusionary Departures” to the mass magic market.
After Chinese New Year in Feb 2012, we are scheduled to be in two different countries in Asia with different shows and events. Mar 2012 will see us hosting another magic event in Singapore that should make a lot of magic enthusiasts and magicians happy here. The projects in Feb & Mar are still being planned but they look promising.
I have also heard our 3D TV show will be released on a nation-wide platform in the second quarter of 2012 so it looks like an exciting 6 months ahead!
