Television series for A&E. I had been pitching series around town with some success when the producers of Criss Angel Mindfreak got in touch with me. They were looking for a producer who could write copy on the fly and direct, so I signed on for the job. Services include producing, directing and writing.
The big thing about filming magic and illusions is to avoid revealing the magic and illusions. It ain’t easy.
One of the challenges of producing a show like Mindfreak is that the camera sees everything. You’re getting 30 frames per second, and you can freeze on any one of them. So, you very quickly become expert at things like line of sight, for example. One of the perks? Living in a casino in Las Vegas for weeks on end, of course.
