"He has the character of force which is the stamp of genius, that variety which proclaims the fire of imagination, and that charm which proves an assured taste" - from Swiss philosophe & educator Auguste Tissot from the book 'MOZART: A LIFE' - Maynard Solomon
I made the greatest disappear in 'THE DISAPPEARANCE OF NEW YORK' illusion-video
THE DISAPPEARANCE OF NEW YORK
How do you make 8 million people disappear? This one question is an example on what inspires myself to create and use my artistic insight and ingenuity to do what I do.
People always ask myself; 'Is magic and illusion real'? I always answer back that it is just as real as reality and it all depends on how you view and use it. Magic and illusion is just like theater, film, writing, producing, dance, singing, acting, etc., it takes work, planning and incorporating your basic skills of how things work to achieve your end goal. It's not always a pretty road to achieving that goal but when you do you have that satisfaction of knowing it can be done and you can do it.
Much like the illusion-video 'THE DISAPPEARANCE OF NEW YORK'.This video will have myself, JAMES D. WATKINS, attempt to make the whole island of NEW YORK CITY vanish for just a few seconds. The reason it is a video is because the concept can really only exist in that format. You see, it all goes back to what was mentioned previously; magic and illusion is just as real as reality, it all depends on how it is viewed and used and in this case the format and medium makes 'THE DISAPPEARANCE OF NEW YORK' possible and 'REAL'.
Included in this illusion-video is a certain 'magical music-video' titled 'SWEET DREAMS - POISON' and it stars PLAYBOY LINGERIE model Nadia Marcella and the song is from Beyonce and Alice Cooper. Nadia Marcella is part of my fantasy and fetish and she will dominate me in every way imaginable. Another 'magical music-video' included is 'TAKE MY BREATH AWAY'from Berlin and it's the love theme from the movie TOP GUN and it stars Ana Natalie Delgado. The one minute promo is below.
