WE NEED TO MAKE MAGIC GREAT AGAIN
Join Mahdi in his struggle to make the world a magical place.
Our aim is to restore magic to it's former glory. You can help by pledging that you will take the burden upon yourself of making magic a great and powerful art form again today!
What This Hat Means
The top hat has been an icon of magic for a long time. Unfortunately, it's a simple that has no relevant place for magic in it's current state. Wearing this hat is a badge to show you want to drag magic out of the mud and into the 21 century.
We live in a world that doesn't believe in magic anymore and where magicians are thought of as low-paid children's entertainers. With the advent of magic clubs, international magician's organizations and the publishing of magic books came a flood of people who were "inducted" as magicians with absolutely no training, knowledge, or talent. Over their decades of horrible performances they have diluted conjuring from being perceived as one of the most prestigious and highly-esteemed professions to one of the lowest in our present society.
For years, the most famous magicians in the world have shown their inability or (either) unwillingness to do whatever is necessary to protect their art form. They have shown, through their actions that magic is not worth two cents. Hiding behind their Vegas stage curtains and millions they have demonstrated that they are unwilling or unable to protect the art of magic. The magic companies equally don't care about the denigration of magic.
We are not magicians unless we ourselves do whatever is necessary to see that magic is protected.
Was is not Shakespeare that wrote,
"To be, or not to be?
That is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and thus by opposing end them."
And I say to you if you take a stand, you will end it... You can start turning it all around today! But if you sit around for those in power to make up their mind to make things better, then you'll be waiting for a long, long time.
It is my opinion, that the people who are in magic right now are living in a time of revolution, a time where there's got to be a change. The people with power have misused it and there has to be a change if magic is to survive outside of the ghettos of entertainment.
Pledge your support to show that you want to change this miserable condition that exists in magic.
Risks and challenges
Designing, manufacturing, and distributing any product is always a challenge. It is a process with many moving parts and variables. I plan to minimize risk and maximize the use of incoming funds using a few simple strategies:
1. The simple design of the hat. I'm working with one of the best headwear companies in the world on an extremely simple design. The simplicity of my design and the experience of this headware company almost ensure that the product will come out perfectly.
2. The small run. This exclusive run that is being funded through Kickstarter is very low and the costs and turnaround times are not very long. If something would go catastrophically wrong I would start from scratch and fulfill every reward.
I have substantial experience working in a variety of other projects in a vast number of fields and am realistic in production times, quality, and budgets.
If this project gets funded. And it will. Believe me.
We are going to Make Magic Great Again!
