See what Stuart thought in this video(link coming soon)
I thought the first half was very painful to watch, far to may manips for my liking!Han Seol-Hee looked great from the cheap seats in the balcony, i can only imagine how good this was from the stalls or even the circle, very very slick! Feel sorry for Marc Oberon though, although it was more like a puppet show on crack (but a great show) then a magic show maybe thats why he only scored 3rd! 10 out of 10 for dragging magic into the modern day arena!
Agree with some of the above comments, some of the manip acts were a bit weak. Kyoto did a good act but was spoiled for me by very poor angles (up in the cheap seats) quite afew around me also mentioed this of some of the acts. Marc Oberon's act was quite good, but again lighting and angles gave clues to methods. He was streets ahead up until Han Seol-Hee, who blew everyone away with originality, speed and entertainment. Well done!Marc Obe should have got second in my opinion as Yumi's act was a little too slow and boring. Steve Owen
