"The highlight of the whole World Magic Seminar was an impromptu,
late-night performance, given by some guy I'd never heard of: Jimmy Fingers. He
performed a close-up levitation, which he invented, and if he wasn't charging
$1,500 for the gimmick, I'd be performing it, too."
Rick Lax, Las Vegas Weekly
"After I saw him do this, I went up to
him, congratulated him on the BEST self-levitation there is. PERIOD. I even gave
him a hug. I'm not a hugger, most of the time. But Jimmy's self-levitation is
worth five hugs!"
Bill Palmer - Arguably, the world's
foremost magic historian and academician
"The reaction to this levitation was one
of pure astonishment... I was amazed at how wide the angle for this levitation
was... I was one of the few people who Jimmy shared the secret with. Let
me say that this is genius if I ever saw it." Father Photius - Suspension and
Imagine, the performer walking to the center of an empty stage, foyer
or any open indoor area, hard floor OR carpeted. He is effortlessly
carrying a satin sheet. He stands behind the sheet, while allowing
the sheet's bottom edge to touch the floor. He begins to rise upward,
ascending, as if he's being lifted by an unseen force. The performer
rises slowly, not mechanically, but as if he were being filled with
helium. At the top of the rise, almost a foot and a half, he drops
the cloth to expose the feet, dangling eerily in mid-air as if he were
being hung or burned at the stake, in a position similar to what you
would imagine seeing at a hanging or a witch hunt. The audience
gasps, whether it is a group of laymen OR magicians. This is
something that they're just not used to seeing. Video cannot do
justice to what they're seeing. The performer holds the cloth in both
hands again, and he begins his descent, gently touching down. He
throws the cloth down and steps forward, clean and free to bow, thank,
and effortlessly pick up the cloth and walk away. The audience is
always blown away by this piece of magic!
Is this a stage illusion? Can it be done on carpet or uneven surfaces?
Is it possible to do it in a banquet hall? Can I perform this at a
house party? Is it a parlor effect? Can it be viewed from a few
yards away? Are the angles workable? Can I do it without helpers and
assistants? Are the setup and breakdown clean, without props left on
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! Start working the higher
visibility shows, no need to charge your clients for shipping, stop
spending time assembling, unpacking and packing. Make one trip to the
performance, not several. Stop carrying, loading and taking away
boxes and supports, and start rising up from the obvious support, the
It's the only in-your-face levitation that is memorable enough to
surpass the effect of anything that you've ever presented.
Magellan Master Levitation, the ultimate in real world self
levitation, without needing to wear fake body parts or gimmicks on your body. No excessive setup
or contrived scenarios... Weighs under 20 pounds and fits in a
The Magellan Master Levitation utilizes the revolutionary subtlety of
its predecessor, the Magellan Witch Levitation, but with a totally
different method of obscuring the workings. The reactions of laymen
to this piece are phenomenal!!! This is a real world, workable
levitation with the portability and simplicity that befits it's
position at the top of the Magellan line of levitations.
Now, the Magellan Master Levitation can be performed alone, solo, OR as
a two person effect similar to the original Magellan Witch, but much more
compact, portable, deceptive and practical!
The main gimmick that accomplishes the levitation, like it's Magellan
predecessors, has no threads, wires, hydraulics, linear actuators,
pneumatics or electronics. This is organic, hard hitting, audience
pleasing concept, brought to life!
Every angle, dimension, cut and hole serves a purpose. There are no
wasted curves or material in this piece. It has been meticulously
tested and fine-tuned to become the miracle that it is.
You don't own a prop that utilizes the genius, subtlety and sheer
diabolically organic design that this does.
Don't confuse this with anything else offered on the market. The
Magellan Master Levitation is very angle friendly, even when compared
to almost all non-rising suspensions, and, yet, it's an advanced self
Improved elements include a new, retractable lift system, less
strenuous physical requirements, less flex in the gimmick and the
ability to use this on carpeting, due to a more stable 3-point base
