Los Angeles, CA, July 02, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Master Mystifier Dixie Dooley, currently appearing at the Westin Casaurina in Las Vegas, took his act to the street and set a world record for suspending a young woman in mid-air for an hour. The unique illusion, staged raw on the sidewalk in front of the popular resort destination as a cooperative effort to help raise funds for Speedway Childrens Charity, was covered exclusively by SpellCasters Showcase, www.spellcasters.com, the premiere third screen VoD network, and video of the event is available to the general public from the SpellCasters website.
“Dixie is terrific magician,” says SpellCasters Executive Producer and President M. “Hep” Sylvanus, “And his use of the SpellCasters platform to reach out to new audience shows a real understanding of what the new media revolution is all about.”
“I want to bring my magic to the people,” says master magician Dooley, “And the net is where they’re at. We can use the new technology to both reach more audience and do some good in the world at the same time.”
“We were happy to help when Dixie proposed this project,” says Sylvanus, “Raising money for charitable causes through the third screen is visionary, and SpellCasters has led the way with programs like this.”
“SpellCasters Showcase is, in fact, well known for our “Shout Out” project, where over a thousand video greetings from troops in the Persian Gulf were made available for free mobile download to military families for Mother’s Day 2006.”
SpellCasters has agreed to donate 30% of each VoD purchase of Dooley’s ‘World Record Magic’ to Speedway, funds which will be used to provide toys, clothing and other necessities to underprivileged children.
“This illusion is performed in its most raw form,” said Dooley, “No lighting tricks, no flashy stage props. I perform this magic right out in the street, under the stark light of the Las Vegas sun, right there for everyone to see. The Westin is the home of my ‘Master Mystifier’ show, and their cooperation in presenting this world record fund-raiser was absolutely invaluable. It’s a beautiful resort with an incredible staff, no question about it.”
Tickets for the ‘Master Mystifier’ show at the Westin Casaurina are available at SpellCasters at discounted rates for SpellCasters viewers, as well. For those who can’t get to Vegas this summer, or for those who’d like to take a peek at this fun evening of Magic, Comedy and, of course, beautiful Showgirls, SpellCasters offers multi-platform VoD of the opening night performance.
“This is an ongoing project,” states Sylvanus, “we are covering the evolution of Dixie’s show, from opening night through the run of the show. New video of the show is coming out of post this week and we know the audience will be intrigued by how the show has evolved since opening night.”
“The show is a lot of fun! Once people see how much fun it is to be in the house for an act like this, they’ll want to go see the show live. That’s what convergence is all about.”
