The Answers You Need










Frequently asked questions about our  products and services can be found below.

We are here to answer your questions.  Feel free to ask using our Inquiry Form


How long does it take to create a custom show and what does it cost?

Complexity, budget, and scale will determine the time it takes to create a custom show. We can modify existing illusions and create a custom presentation very quickly.  Providing us with your goals, the size of your audience, budget estimate and event venue will be required for us to determine a realistic time line and fee structure.


What do mean by you offering "consultation" with respect to magic and illusion?

We can help determine the best way to achieve your desired effect within the scope of your budget and time constraints.

We also consult acts and performers with respect to their image and the style of magic which we believe will work best for them to perform.


I  want to purchase Mark O'Brien's  "Split Image" illusion.  How long does it to build one

and how much does it cost?

Mark O'Brien is the creator of this illusion and this is the first time it is being licensed for use in the magic community (March, 2019). We are building them in limited runs. We are constructing three at a time. Once we have three buyers with deposits in place we will begin construction. Estimated arrival time will be determined by the number of illusions in construction.  Cost is available upon serious interest.
