The Magic of Jen Kramer

Project 7 of 35
Douglas was hired by Jen Kramer as a creative consultant to her show, “The Magic of Jen Kramer” at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.

The first phase was taking notes on the show, focusing on stage direction, blocking, transitions, and how to add more production value to the show.

Phase two was creating new video content for the 3 LED video panels above the stage. The video content was to compliment each scene, routine, and trick Jen was performing on stage. Some of the video elements were partial and oversized images of the props on stage, other elements were to create a scene and environment, like the Game Show segment in the show.

The final phase to increasing the production value of the show, was adding two new major illusions. The process went from concept to completion; from the initial design, to overseeing the construction of the illusions (which was dictated by the size of the stage and storage back stage) to selecting music, helping to choreograph and direct, and helping with the lighting design. Jen made sure that the designs stayed consistent with her look and brand, as well as, making sure the final routines fit her style and personality.

With changes to the show happening on stage, the Westgate executive team wanted to update the advertising and marketing campaign to reflect Jen’s growth, after completely her first year on property. I was able to consult at the photo shoot with the super talented photographer Jerry Metellus, on the final image of Jen magically floating objects between her hands.

Douglas and Jen Kramer

“Doug is incredibly creative, smart, dedicated, professional, multi-talented… I could go on and on! Working with him has been an amazing experience. Whether Doug is choreographing an illusion, developing new graphic designs, finding music to fit a particular routine, or brainstorming ideas in general, his creativity and attention to detail shine through.

He is always invested in making meaningful contributions to the show, and his ideas and feedback have been so valuable as we’ve added new routines and tweaked existing elements.

When we incorporated new illusions like the Elevator into the show, Doug’s creative input was instrumental throughout the process. From the blocking of the routines to the music, Doug is great at it all.

Not only has he been super helpful with the magic content, but he also created beautiful graphics for the LED screens to enhance the visual look of the show. And to top it all off, he’s always reliable and I know I can count on him.

I am so grateful for Doug’s support and am excited to continue working together. Doug, you rock!”
