I had the honor designing and building a Burning Rose and Burning Hand illusion for Taylor Swift. It was one of the top highlights of the American Music Awards 2014 that aired live on NBC. It was the cover story for all the top entertainment magazines in print and online! Check out the FB Video!
"I cant thank Tony enough for his professionalism, creativity and flexibility in the face of an every changing narrative . He always kept in mind the needs of production in terms of both the actors and the characters skill level necessary to tell the larger story. I cant imagine doing any scene involving magic without his expertise."
"When I booked a huge guest-starring role doing magic on the Disney show, "The Suite Life on Deck", it was a big milestone for me....I was also very intimidated. Tony Clark was the first guy I called. He not only helped me deliver the magical needs called for in the script, but he coached me in creating some new twists that blew producers away and made me look like a hero. Thanks a million Tony!"
"When I started to write my new show 'Mr Magic' I had only one person in mind to design and help create the magic and magical look of the series. That person was Tony Clark. Having seen his work for years on and off stage as a performer and creator of magic, I had made the decision years ago that if i ever needed a magic consultant and creator for anything magic related that I was doing I would call on Tony. Well now I am and I did!!"
"Consultancies in the film and television are always risky because the majority of the time, you're paying an "expert" to provide counsel, when you yourself are not an "expert" at what you're hiring the individual to accomplish - - thus you have no barometer to judge whether their expertise has true value. And there are a lot of naive people in the entertainment industry, who routinely get hoodwinked by various "experts" out there. Fortunately, when we sought Tony's help for the various "illusions-oriented" projects in our film and television departments, we didn't have to be experts in magic to know Tony was providing top tier advice and concrete solutions to the creative problems we hired him to solve. Tony's ability to construct illusions and acts that provide a genuine "Wow!" factor for the audience, while also being truly affordable, is what sets him apart from most outside contractors, particularly in the field of magic. We would hire him again in an instant, and we probably will as his insights into illusions and the world of magic has excited us about mining further opportunities in this historically significant art form."
"When I found out I was playing a magician on "HOUSE" and would be doing Houdini's water torture escape I turned to the one man I knew would help me make it out alive, Tony Clark! Tony's knowledge and professionalism made the shoot smooth and easy. Couldn't have done it without his expertise and patience. I highly recommend him for all your magic needs!"
"Tony was my magic consultant an episode of BROTHERS & SISTERS which I directed. It was one of those pressure-cooker shoots and I had to rely very heavily on Tony's experience and motivation to make the whole thing a success. Fortunately for all of us Tony is the perfect professional. He took control of all the magic issues (and the episode revolved around magic). He designed illusion after illusion, took it upon himself to train actors with no magic experience into professional-looking close-up illusionists, all in less than a week. Every day he came prepared for anything and with boundless energy. All of us on set quickly grew to rely on him and he never let us down. Tony is in many ways the ideal collaborator: a generous, enthusiastic expert who instinctively understands the pace and pressures of filming and is always right there when you need him. He was, truly, a joy to work with."
"If anyone has worked in the film business they know the value of someone that delivers what they promise. Tony is one of those individuals. He not only created some very impressive magic for my film but was vital in teaching and coaching John Malkovich. The shoot went smoothly thanks to Tony's expertise. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a magic consultant."
