Arthur Trace – The Artful Deceiver – Magician

Highly acclaimed by his peers as “one of the most unique acts in the world of magic today,” said R.G. Smith, Executive Show Director of The Society of American Magicians, Arthur Trace is the eighth magician in the history of magic to be awarded The International Brotherhood of Magicians Gold Medal. In 2006 he became a FISM award winner at the World Championships of Magic in Stockholm. And in 2007, Arthur was awarded the “Best Cabaret Magic” award at The World Magic Awards. In 2015 and 2016, The Academy of Magical Arts nominated Arthur as the Stage Magician of The Year.

Being recognized amongst his peers has brought many opportunities, some of which include: appearing on national television broadcasts in seven countries, touring China with the WuQiao Circus, performing for Prince Albert II of Monaco at The Princess Grace Theatre, and producing his show aboard The Queen Mary. Last year Arthur had the honor of headlining The Magical Mystery Show at the legendary Wintergarten Variete in Berlin, Germany and at The House of Magic in Macau.

Combining original magic, audience participation, and imaginatively humorous scenarios, Arthur’s show is innovative, artful, and fun. Great for young and old audiences alike, each year he brings his artful deception to corporate and theater audiences worldwide. Watch Arthur perform and find out why Kevin Pang of the Chicago Tribune called him “one of magic’s bona fide superstars!”

When not touring, Arthur lives in Los Angeles with his wife and dog.

Determined and passionate, Jenn has a reputation for taking on tough projects and exceling against the odds. Although she’s directed in almost every genre, she’s most drawn to romantic dramedy and musical projects. Some of her work includes the multi-award-winning comedy musical feature film “Waiting in the Wings” starring Lee Meriwether and Shirley Jones, the award-winning musical comedy web series “My Two Black Girlfriends,” the multi-award-winning “The Breakout: A Rock Opera,” and the International Academy of Web Television’s live awards show hosted by Tony award-winner Roger Bart.

Jenn was a great guest and one of the best things I loved about this interview was the fact that if you ask people about what they love to do most in life ( passion ) and  you will find they are doing just that in their career. This seemed abundantly clear in talking with Jenn and I know she is a force to be reckoned with… keep watching her! 

Jenn also told me off air that she has a project that she is working on that is in post production, BUT she gave me a couple of links to take a peek into this project called  “Playing with Beethoven”–music-education

Standup comedian, writer, actor Daniel Eachus @DanEachus on

Actor Will Roberts – Host of 

This episode of I talked with standup comedian, writer, actor and man that wears many hats, but does NOT know his size… Daniel Eachus! I originally saw Daniel at a stand up club at a huge casino in the town of Temecula, California < an Oxymoron…  I knew right off the bat by watching him he was a lot bigger than the space he was playing in. He, and I am sure he hears this a lot, was by far the best comedian of the whole night, of course he was the ONLY comedian (rim shot) .. no he was not alone that night performing, but he was the headliner, and rightfully so. He smooth delivery and casualness ( not to be confused with the new style comedy called – I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU THINK, COMEDY) was NATURAL, at ease and funny, and I rarely give that compliment to anyone …other than myself ;).  sit back and listen to a fun show!

Daniel Eachus bio:

Daniel Eachus is a rising young star in the comedy world. Even at such a young age, Eachus has the chops of a comedy veteran and people are taking notice. Born and raised in Fresno, CA, he was surrounded by farms, but didn’t want to smell raisins for the rest of his life, so he turned to comedy to get him out. For college, Daniel’s wish came true and he left Fresno to study in Long Beach. By day, he was a student, by night he performed on the stand-up comedy circuit. After just one year of nightly performances, he became the youngest finalist ever in the “Funniest Comic in Los Angeles” contest held at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club. He’s been entertaining audiences ever since.




Eachus has been performing stand-up and improv throughout the nation’s clubs and recently was featured on Comedy Central’s “Up Next” and Sirius XM’s Comedy Central Radio. A finalist or winner in scores of comedy competitions including the World Series of Comedy, Up Next Regionals, Sacramento Comedy Festival (1st place winner), OC Improv Cup and more, he’s considering expanding his trophy shelf.

But doing stand-up and improv is not enough for Daniel. When he’s not onstage making people laugh, he’s making people laugh at their screens. Daniel acts, writes, and produces the comedy sketch series, “Bigfoot Chasers”. He is a co-writer on a brand new Kevin Hart-Produced Series. He’s starred in 10 National Television Commercials, was featured on SpikeTV, and recently made his stand-up television debut on Fox’s “Laughs”.



Self-tape how to – and the r300 Ring light it is da bomb! @Koll_ltd

Self-tape how to – and the r300 Ring light it is da bomb! Hey folks this is Will Roberts hear from and today I want to talk to you about lighting your self tape. If you’re an actor and trying to figure out how to make your self tape auditions that you’re sending look professional, then lighting is essential. I spent too many years going to Home Depot or Lowe’s and creating my own lighting by multiple lighting fixtures, trying to bounce light, trying outdoor light and nothing has really worked out for me. But recently I got the F & V Lighting R-300 SE LED Ring Light. 300 means it has 300 LEDs and I got it from my friends at Koll Limited and the product is made by F&V. This is absolutely the best buy I’ve ever made because it doesn’t matter if you have any other lights when you’re shooting with this ring light. It provides plenty of light to make your self tape auditions look great! Now normally the lens of a DSLR would go through the round hole but in my case because I am focusing on self taping with smart phones I have figured out how to adapted to a smartphone and it is amazing. It has 2 filters that go on easily because of rare earth magnets. It’s well constructed and allows you to either plug-in or have a battery for fieldwork. I highly recommend this and really think it makes my stuff look well above most people producing self tapes. Any other questions get a hold of us on below is more information about this item I highly recommended. happy self taping! Will

The F & V Lighting R-300 SE LED Ring Light with L-Bracket produces 2250 Lux at 1-meter with 300 daylight-balanced LEDs. The 50 degree beam-angle allows for an even, wide spread of light while the onboard dimmer offers seamless power variation from 0 -100%. The slim profile and weight make it perfect for shots in the studio or on location for galmour, concert, and macro photography/videography. The R-300 has two power options: a Sony NP-F Battery Plate and DC 2.5 jack. Batteries and AC adapter sold separately. The R-300 SE comes packaged with two magnetic filters: a Tungsten Filter and a Frost Diffusion Filter. The Tungsten Filter will calibrate your light to 3200K allowing you to shoot indoors under incandescent light. The Frost Diffusion Filter takes the edge off of the light’s beam and also can serve as a gel holder. Also available, is the Milk White Diffusion filter which creates a very soft, glamorous, and easy-to-look-at light source. This kit comes with the improved L-Bracket that allows the user to mount a wider variety of cameras including DSLRs with battery grips. The R-300 SE has several mounting options. Beyond being able to mount to the L-bracket or 15mm Rod Mount accessory. The R-300 SE can also be mounted on top of your camera; it has a 1/4″-20 thread-in on its underside for use with a ball head.

Ryan Sage Hollywood Director! Americas Got Talent @SagetWit

This week on Acting Up Radio… Ryan Sage Hollywood Director! Americas Got Talent!

Ryan Sage

is an award-winning writer, producer, director, who splits his time between network promos and micro-budget filmmaking.

Here is the Americas Got Talent promo I did with Ryan below!

For Super Bowl LII, Ryan was apart of two high profile projects, directing The Voice “Super Commercial,” which premiered during halftime in front of 106 million viewers and was called out by Yahoo Sports, The Chicago Tribune and Rolling Stone as one of year’s best Super Bowl spots. He also spent three weeks working closely with film legend Spike Lee as his personal editor for a Network Brand spot that paid tribute to Prince and aired during the pre-game.

Ryan’s latest feature, ‘Temps,’ which dives into modern day love and commitment through the eyes of temp workers, became one of the 2016’s biggest indie film success stories. Despite its ultra-low budget, the Temps trailer struck a nerve with audiences and went viral, racking up more than 60 million views becoming the most watched romantic comedy trailer on YouTube. Those views turned into sales, and Temps became a chart topping romantic comedy – hitting #1 on iTunes bestseller list in April of 2016 and peaking again in July as a top 5 Indie.
