The potential returns of being an illusionist are tremendous.
You can have the opportunity to play on grand stages and entertain hundreds, if not thousands of people, at one time. You can showcase your craft like no other magician can.
Due to the ability for an illusionist to fill a stage, create scale and production value as well as potentially entertain a larger audience, clients generally regard illusion shows as higher value shows than other magic shows. This means, they are generally willing to pay more for an illusion show.
This potentially allows a business-savvy illusionist to command a premium fee to cover all his costs and yet still make a decent profit.
However, producing an illusion show is vastly different from putting together any other type of magic show.
Aside from technical skills and knowledge, producing an illusion show requires a completely different skill-set and capital investment. There is little room for error as there is a lot at stake.
Generally, an illusion show costs much more to produce than a regular magic show, especially if you compare the cost of production with a close-up magician or kids show magician. So, the capital outlay for the illusionist is generally much higher.
Continual reinvestment back into the show or additional capital injection is also higher in order to build the show, update it or make it better.
The cost of staging an illusion show is higher than most other magic shows because you require assistants, crew and technicians to run the show. A smaller magic show can be performed solo or with just one or two assistants. The transport of the props in trucks is also an additional cost.
Due to the scale of an illusion show, it is unlikely you can do multiple illusions shows in a day, unless it is in the same venue. Other magicians can take on multiple different shows in different venues and for different events if the distance between shows is close enough.
Illusion shows have more logistic and venue requirements than other magic shows. You need a stage large enough to accommodate the show (often with side wings), the audience seated in a specific arrangement or at a certain distance and the ability to load in the illusions into the performing venue. Most other magic shows can adapt their show to the venue and performing environment.
There are also offstage costs that illusionists incur that other magicians do not have such as storage space and illusion maintenance costs.
Learning how to produce an illusion show efficiently will save you a tremendous amount of time, effort and money. Having a show that is market-ready means getting booked for gigs, recouping your investment and ultimately, making good money.
