DISABILITIES DON'T APPLY--Tune Out The Politics-Deaf Magicians.....


DISABILITIES DON'T APPLY.....TUNE OUT THE POLITICS...

My journey continues in the magical arts as I traveled down to West Palm Beach Florida to meet renowned deaf magician Simon Carmel.....We met one afternoon over lunch at a Four Guys Burger establishment and the wonderment of spending time with a magician who is completely deaf but able to conjure up magic and illusions with just his other senses astounded me. Dr. Simon Carmel was able to take a deck of cards and place down cards that spelled out my phone number right on the table. The amazing thing about Dr. Carmel and the afternoon we spent together consisted of not just being able to perform magic but do it with astounding adeptness that complimented any non deaf performer while doing feats that were just as good as any other magician I've met over my 40+ years of delving in the craft.....Dr. Carmel's book, SILENT MAGIC not only shares the many deaf magicians stories that are out there nationwide but he tells the stories with the astute eloquence that rivals a David Copperfield or even a Thurston.....In a time where politics of Donald Trump disgusts many, isn't it nice to know that there are those who don't have to pay any attention to the world around us because of their disability.....Now may not be a bad time to tune out all of the politics that disgust us all by turning to a deaf magician who really doesn't need to listen up to all the rhetoric.....

The Grip Weeds Lies Music Video

Had the pleasure and privilege to work in 2013 on their Knickerbocker song LIES.  Produced by the Gripweeds and shot on location at the VA Hall in Asbury Park, this music video took quite an interesting lighting setup as the band wanted to create a Beatles feel on the Ed Sullivan Show look.  We shot most of the day in Asbury Park getting shots down while choreographing the elements to the song.  Caroline Leveille was my Production Assistant for the shoot and offered up valuable help and coordination the day of the shoot.  The band was terrific to work with and made my work easier during shooting.  Terrific bunch of people.  In the end after directing and shooting the video we accomplished everything we needed on-time and on budget....Hope to work with these fine people again sometime.

All the best,
