Do your magic tricks create anything more than entertainment and amazement for the people that watch them? Could they lead to more intimate connections between the people that watch them?
Last night I was at the Double Tree Hilton in Tower Hill doing walk-around magic for Kraft Foods, and I was running through my favorite coin routine, when something dawned on me. The coin trick has a ‘hook’ in its presentation that can be applied to so many other close up magic tricks to increase their impact of spectators. It’s a very small extra step that I have added which is probably overlooked by most of the spectators. However, for just a few, every now and then, it can make their whole evening and possibly change their lives. How many other little additions to a trick can do that?
Want to know what it was? I grabbed my iPhone and talked about it in this short video:
Video podcasting does not come naturally to me. Which is strange as I’m very used to performing magic in front of people. Perhaps that’s why I very rarely appear in any of the magic DVD’s that The Merchant of Magic have produced in the past.Please excuse the sound quality, It was filmed moments before I had to start performing, so please take it as you find it.
