Saved his life with Magic!

I publish or layout books for authors and get involved in marketing the end product.

One project was a book “Surviving By Magic” by Fergus Anckorn, a resident in the Sevenoaks area and a POW of the Japanese in WW2.  He worked on the Thai-Burma railway.  He survived this grim ordeal, partly thanks to his skills as a conjuror.

One episode involved eggs and his escape from decapitation as a result.

I filmed this particular trick with Fergus telling the story at the same time.  It was filmed in his very small flat using a black cloth pinned to his wall.  Fortunately, my Panasonic camera has a slightly wider angle lens than the equivalent Sony FX so I was just able to keep him in focus, but it was tight.  Watch this and enjoy.

    An interesting story…… and now to tell you how it was done. Well, maybe not, that might breach magic circle rules!

    Very good Jim. I must go and get some eggs – large ones preferably.
