Our New Year's Resolutions

By Damian Jennings - Monday, January 6, 2020

Joshua Jay - Cofounder
I’d like to come up with a new piece to music. I tend to always script my pieces or rely on speaking, but I’d like to develop something that can be performed silently.

Andi Gladwin - Cofounder
My resolution is to find even more opportunities to perform! The more shows I do, the less I get to perform socially and so this year, I hope to change that.

George Luck - General Manager
We have some amazingly talented sleight of hand guys and girls on our team… and I can’t even compete with them. So my resolution is to spend more time with a deck of cards in my hand!

Damian Jennings - Chief Marketing Officer
A few years ago I worked up a mentalism act with a character called Tony Sagittarius. My resolution for 2020 is to perform a new one man show as Tony.

Alex Robertson - Customer Service
I am working on some close up routines. By May 2020 I aim to have 3 routines I do regularly, instead of what I have now which is 1 routine and lots of different tricks.

Nguyen Ngoc Tu - Customer Service
I bought a lot of magic stuff in 2019 and I think I should try to practice them. I also try to work on other kinds of magic like Rubik, Sponge Ball, Coin and Mentalism

Ellis James - Marketing Intern
I know lots of tricks, but I need to work on stringing them together. My goal for 2020 is to develop my character more and put together a 30 minute act.

Matt Szatkowski - Marketing Executive
Fine-tune my parlor act and perform my first-ever ticketed performance and also find a couple steady restaurant gigs for the slower months.

Jim Krenz - Mage of Mirth and Customer Support
I will work on my “Glass Act.”

Mark Woodford - UK Warehouse Manager and Video Production
I have taken a full year out of performing because I felt my passion for performing the same old stuff was falling. This break has been good for me and now I’d like to spend time working on new material and start performing again. At the same time I’m going to be a lot more picky about gigs. I have learnt that I don’t HAVE to do every gig that comes down the river.

Kyle LIttleton - US Warehouse Manager
I plan to start working on layering my magic better. I've always preferred quick tricks, but I've found myself doing extended form sets, and for those, I want to work on a few routines that are longer without them feel procedural or long-winded.

Nathan Suguitan - Warehouse Associate
I’ve always considered myself a bit of a card guy. Therefore, my New Year’s resolution is to expand outside of cards. I believe that changing the medium will help me get a better understanding of my performance space, and will force me to come up with new, or different plots.


What are your magical resolutions for 2020? Let us know in the comments.

Stop effing around and COMMIT to work on memorized deck material for REAL. (I mean, as much as possible given that I'm an amateur, incredibly busy with other work, and only rarely perform for friends and family ...)

PS. is it bad to immediately qualify/dilute a resolution the very moment you make it?!? I resolve to make better resolutions in 2020.
