Gerry Frenette

    March 18, 2017 Written by Attwood Magic

    Our guest this week is the much sought after creative of wonder and illusion builder, Gerry Frenette joining us from his magical workshop.

    We spoke about a few of his latest creations such as Lethal and Gerry's appearing sailboat (as shown above). Gerry also talked about his video project Building Your Own Illusions. This is a project that Gerry took on where he pours 30 years experience into the camera for eager magicians. Here you can learn the basics of illusion building and save yourself countless hours of frustration and money by learning how to do it right the first time.

    The beautiful thing about illusions is that it takes the magic of creating wonder to the greatest heights AND as a performer...you get to charge WAY more money!

    Make sure to check out all of Gerry's creations at http://www.magicmakersillusions.com

    You Are Not Alone!

    C5hWMGTWgAEP9pm 215x300You matter!

    You matter to me!

    If you are overwhelmed and feeling lost please just do two things for me. First, take a breath, push the pause button for a quick ten count. Breath in deep. Then call me, text me, phone me, email me, Facebook me, Tweet me and I will be there. If not me then call 1-800-273-8255.

    My door is open for you proverbially and literally. I have coffee (or beer….or bourbon…just sayin’) and insomnia so whatever the time of day, I am here for you. If you just need to take some time to get away from the rest of the world, there will be no judgement just an ear and a shoulder. I have a guest room and if that ever changes, I will have a couch.

    This morning I awoke to discover that I lost a friend suddenly and tragically. I was overcome with such a depth of sadness and I wept. I wept for the lost chances to have a beer with my friend one more time. My thoughts turned even darker when I began to wonder if I should have been more available. We had made strides to start a project together but with both our busy schedules, I let it slip down my priority ladder and I hadn’t thought about reaching out to him in months.

    My mind raced with thoughts like, “Should I have pushed harder to complete this project?” “Should I have reached out more?”

    You see my friend was not very keen on technology. Even email for this man was a bit stressful. I remember him staying with me and getting excited when he figured out how to email from his phone. He emailed me from the guest room.
