Merry Christmas from Southern California, everyone!

Neil Patrick Harris is a puppet!


Neil Patrick Harris as a marionette

Scott Land is a wonderful puppeteer and sculptor, and this is a commissioned piece for the World Famous Magic Castle. Neil Patrick Harris is being made into a marionette for a special event. Neil is the current president of the Magic Castle, and one of its most avid promoters.

Scott Land is a puppeteer who’s seasoned performing skills are on display in nearly every scene of Paramount Pictures’ Team America: World Police. During the making of the movie—the most expensive puppet-driven feature film ever produced—Scott did more than pull the strings on dozens of lead characters. Throughout the 4 months of shooting, Land lent his expertise to director/producersTrey Parker and Matt Stone who, shot by shot, relied on his 25 years of marionette experience to help them create their landmark film. Other screen credits include Disney’s The Princess Diaries 2, for which he created and performed a Julie Andrews look-alike marionette, seen on the Special Features section of the DVD. His other TV and film credits include Pee Wee’s Playhouse, The Ben Stiller Show, Still Breathing, Shakes the Clown and Rodney Dangerfield’s Birthday Bash.

Pop Haydn and the Mystery of the Magic Castle

Pop Haydn tests the Tesla Coil C-2000

Pop Haydn tests his new Tesla Coil C-2000. This device is created primarily for medical and general health applications and designed specifically for use in the home….

Pop will use it in his Tesla Girl routine in his new show, “Pop Haydn in the 21st Century” at Magicopolis in Santa Monica, CA March 7th and April 4th.

Sophie Evans is Tesla Girl, and she demonstrates her ability to control the force of gravity through the manipulation of radio-magnetism. The strongest men from the audience can’t move her off her copper mat, or lift her up or push her off balance when she is immersed in the radio-magnetic field of this powerful Tesla Coil.
